Abstract

The apocalypse is an extraordinary event as a sign of the end of the world. This event has been prophesied by the world's major religions, including Islam and Christianity. Moreover, in the teachings of the two religions, the end-time event is something that must be believed. This event attracts the attention of the authors of literary works. The poem "The Four Hourseman" by Gary R. Ferris is a literary work that describes the apocalypse event. This study views the poem from the perspectives of Christianity and Islam by using the Literary Criticism, Mimetic Approach, with a qualitative method. The results from this study are that the Christian and Islamic perspectiveon the four horsemen in the poem "The Four Horseman" by Gary R. Ferris refers to the events of apocalypse; the white horse as a sign of the emergence of the Antichrist or Dajjal in the Islamic perspective, the red horse as a symbol of the bloodshed in the war of the end time, the black horse as a sign of great famine and the pale horse (gray) as a symbol of mass death. The last is the descent of a savior which is symbolized as the true white horseman. Based on the Christian perspective, the savior is the Lord Jesus Christ, while based on the Islamic perspective, he is Prophet Isa.
