Abstract

Gossip has been famously regarded as one form of communication. People interact with each other and end up in gossiping about other people. The issue of gossip is still considered as trivial thing and the word gossip itself is still labeled with negative value. This research entitled “An Analysis of Representation of Gossip in Lauren Weisberger’s Everyone Worth Knowing” attempts to reveal the benefits of gossip which becomes the main issue of the novel. Using James O. Young’s (1999) representation theory and theory of gossip by Elaine Lui (2012), this research provides another perspective of gossip by portraying the function and power of gossip, and also how gossip works in the society. The findings show that the issue of gossip is closely related to famous people like celebrity, and gossip has also been used as a commodity to reach certain purposes. ---------- Gosip dikenal sebagai salah satu bentuk komunikasi. Orang-orang berinteraksi satu sama lain dan berujung pada bergosip tentang sebuah hal. Isu tentang gossip masih dilihat sebagi sebuah isu yang kurang begitu menarik. Skripsi yang berjudul “An Analysis of Representation of Gossip in Lauren Weisberger’s Everyone Worth Knowing” ini mencoba untuk mengungkap keuntungan dari gossip yang menjadi isu utama dalam novel yang digunakan. Dengan menggunakan teori representasi dari James O. Young (1999) dan juga teori mengenai gossip yang dikemukakan oleh Elaine Lui (2012), peneletian ini menyajikan sudut pandang baru tentang gossip dengan menonjolkan fungsi dan pengaruh dari gosip serta menampilkan bagaimana gosip berfungsi dalam sebuah masyarakat. Temuan dari penelitian ini menunjukan bahwa isu mengenai gossip berhubungan erat dengan orang-orang terkenal seperti selebriti dan juga gosip telah digunakan sebagai sebuah komoditas yang dimanfaatkan untuk mencapai tujuan tertentu.
