Abstract

The Bluest Eye is one of Toni Morrison’s novels that describes the situation and condition of the African-American society in 1940s. The novel tells about the life of women, especially the life of the main woman character, Pecola Breedlove, who is the victim of the standard of beauty. It is very interesting to analyze this novel because it describes the shackles of patriarchy. One of the shackles of patriarchy is the standard of beauty, which is believed by the society in this novel. The aims of the thesis are: to describe how the culture of patriarchy influences and shackles the mind of women characters, to analyze the condition of Pecola’s psyche because of the shackles of patriarchy, and to explore how Pecola gets out of patriarchy and finds happiness. In order to complete this thesis, the writer uses library research to acquire data and information that have much connection with the subject matter of this thesis. The writer also uses the approach of feminist psychoanalysis to analyze the novel. Feminism is an approach that focuses on women, while psychoanalysis is an approach that focuses on the condition of woman’s psyche. The shackles of patriarchy described in this novel are the standard of beauty, the sexual oppression against women characters, and the women inferiority. Finally, the result of the research shows that the conflict that Pecola endures causes her madness.
