Abstract

The research paper analyzes the representation of women’s power which is viewed from feminist perspective in the three short stories from Maureen Mc.Hugh’s collection book entitled Mothers and Other monster. The aim of the study is to find out : (1) In what ways do the three short stories represent women’s power viewed from feminist perspective? (2) What do these forms of power signify? The study uses a qualitative descriptive approach to answer the research questions above. This research employs close reading strategy in which the three short stories; The Lincoln Train, Oversite, Presence is read thoroughly and carefully to determine the main issue of the study and to collect data. Afterwards, the data collected in the form of textual evidences is analyzed by means of postmodern feminism proposed by Helena Cixous. The text indicated that there are six forms of power that women’s characters have; knowledge, physical strength, verbal skill, caring , decision making, and management skills. Then, these exercises of power are scrutinized to see the signification. These powers are presented among Clara Corbett and Elizabeth Loudon in The Lincoln Train, Clara and Renata in Oversite, and Mila in Presence. ;---Penelitian ini menganalisa representasi dari kekuatan wanita yang dilihat dari perspektif feminist dalam tiga cerita pendek dari sebuah koleksi buku yang berjudul Mothers and Other monsters. Tujuan dari penelitian ini adalah untuk mencari tahu: (1) dengan cara apa ketiga cerita pendek tersebut merepresentasikan kekuatan wanita dilihat dari perspektif feminist? (2) menandakan apa bentuk-bentuk dari kekuatan tersebut?. Studi ini menggunakan pendekatan deskriptif kualitatif untuk menjawab pertanyaan-pertanyaan penelitian diatas. Penelitian ini menggunakan strategi pembacaan teliti dimana ketiga cerita pendek yang berjudul; The Lincoln Train, Oversite, Presence dibaca secara mendalam dan penuh pengamatan untuk menentukan isu utama dalam studi serta mengumpulkan data. Setelah itu, data yang terkumpul dalam bentuk teks tersebut di analisa dengan teori postmodern feminism dari Helena Cixous. Teks tersebut menunjukkan bahwa ada enam bentuk kekuatan yang dimiliki oleh karakter-karakter wanita: pengetahuan, kekuatan fisik, kemampuan verbal, kepeduliaan, membuat keputusan, dan kemampuan manajemen. Bentuk-bentuk kekuatan tersebut kemudian di teliti dengan cermat untuk melihat maknanya. Kekuatan-kekuatan tersebut dilihat dari Clara Corbett dan Elizabeth Loudon di cerita The Lincoln Train, Clara dan Renata di cerita Oversite, dan Mila di cerita Presence.
