Abstract

The title of this project is called Alienation of Modern Man in John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men. The purpose of this paper is to analyze the alienation of George Milton who is the main character in Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men due to modernization and to analyze the alienation features of George Milton based on Richard Schacht’s alienation. Modernization has influenced the trait of modern man because the rapid changes in the stage of society, directly its processess has shaped the typical personal towards society. With regard to George Milton, as a modern man, he envisages the material fulfilment. He really desires to be the master of everything. In analyzing data, the writer applies a qualitative research. The data are analyzed drawing on Richard Schacht’s theory of alienation (1970). Based on Schacht’s concept of alienation, he divides alienation into four classifications; alienation from others, alienation from work, alienation from event-structure, and alienation from culture-society. By using this theory, this paper examines the relation of modernization towards the emergence of George’s alienation. The research findings indicate that George Milton, the main character in Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men, perfectly portrays the concept of Schacht’s alienation. Modernization has a meaningful relationship to the emergence of George Milton’s alienation. Because of the rapidly processess of modernization, it contributes to the straight work environment’s authority, the self, and the context. The work environment’s authority involves the occupational streesses in the workplace including the presence of inflexible and strict rules, the repetitive characteristics of job and the contractual system in the ranch. In the sphere of the context, George’s alienation is emerged by the impact of the oppressive system in the workplace, the fault of Depression time and the dominating power. Then, George’s alienation towards the self is emerged because he is full of exaggerated delusions for gaining the more expectancy of life. While, George’s features of alienation involve the alienation from work, alienation from others, alienation from event-structure, and alienation from culture-society. Moreover, the modernization has the meaningful significance to the emergence of George’s alienation in Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men.
