Abstract

Al Aaraaf, a realm of the afterlife, can hardly be imagined, but it is its abstractness that makes AI Aaraaf a challenging subject. Edgar Allan Poe is among the few who were eager to portray this, and he expressed it in his poem "AI Aaraaf." This research attempts to figure out (I) the portrayal of Al Aaraaf and its environs as intrinsically constructed in Poe's "AI Aaraaf," (2) the dwellers of Al Aaraaf and its environs according to the poem, and (3) the series of events that take place in AI Aaraaf and its environs as chronologically narrated in the poem. This graduating paper is a qualitative research using content analysis method. The main source of the data is Poe's "AI Aaraaf." The objects of the analysis are taken from words, phrases, clauses, and sentences of this poem. For data analysis, this research uses New Criticism theory according to John Crowe Ransom which suggests approaching poetry through its structure and texture. From the viewpoint of the structure, this research has found that (I) Al Aaraaf and its environs are portrayed as a wandering star, a place of beauty through its beautiful garden and gorgeous dome and hall, a place of pleasant voices, a temporary resting place, and a dread star for some dwellers; (2) the dwellers of Al Aaraaf are Nesace (the ruler), Ligeia (angel of melody), and Angelo-Ianthe; and (3) the series of events in Al Aaraaf range from exposition from the description of the setting, complication that is shown through Nesace's prayers, crisis that begins after the prayers when Nesace calls out the dwellers of AI Aaraafto wake up and leave Al Aaraaf, and climax when Angelo-Ianthe refuse to leave Al Aaraaf and disappear. From the viewpoint of texture, this research has found that the portrayal of Al Aaraaf and its environs is depicted compactly. The diction through its imagery and figurative language as well as its meter are carefully constructed and significantly contribute to the content of Poe's "AI Aaraaf'. Keywords: Al Aaracif, structure, texture
