Abstract

War in Gaza Strip is a never ending war from the past time until now. There are a lot of books written recording it from various views by the scholars, journalists, researchers, and story writers. One of them is Michael Heart who wrote the song entitled “We Will Not Go Down” which tells about the situation of the war in a special style. This research is intended to describe the portrait of Palestine war according to the song. This research analyses the intrinsic elements of the song by using New Criticism theory by Cleanth Brooks. For the process of analyzing data, this research uses descriptive analysis method. Based on the analysis, this research has found that the description of the portrait of war in “We Will Not Go Down” song is divided into unification of two contradictory situations: (1) Pleasant contra Horrible situation which are dominant in the first and the third stanza. The little pleasant situation described by using rhyme, denotative meaning, ambiguity, visual and auditory imagery is contradicted with the great horrible situation by using denotative meaning, visual, auditory and tactile imagery, and paradox. Paradoxical situation refers to the panicky situation of war. (2) Hopeless contra Hopeful situation which are dominant in the end of the first and the third stanza, and the refrain. The small hopeless situation described by using visual and auditory imagery is contradicted with the great hopeful situation by using visual imagery, irony, and connotative meaning. The ironical style is used for describing the position of the speaker as if he is a part of inhabitant of Gaza. Keywords: War, “We Will Not Go Down”, new criticism
