Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


This article investigates the existence and demystifies the ghosts that appear in all four of Intan Paramaditha's works, "Collection of Slaves of Satan", "Witchcraft", "Ghosts and Nights of a Thousand Hells". Focuses on ghosts, who exist in all of his literary works. Intan Paramaditha's writing is consistent, consistently siding with feminist causes and the horror genre. The selection of Intan Paramaditha's four works is based on her feminist ideals, which frame her work with her critique of patriarchy. We explore how these ghosts look as if they were assigned to develop perceptions and reflect myths that have been quickly growing in society till now, utilizing the Beauvoir approach. This study expands on women's writing as revolt and protest, as well as offering, and even inciting, gender violations. Female ghosts possessed by males, and, of course, Intan Paramaditha attempts to criticize the social position that women face in society in order to manifest ghosts in values and perceptions that have been chained by norms and regulations. Feminism may deepen and take root in Indonesian society by recognizing women as autonomous creatures.
