Why you should read Indonesia’s THIS EARTH OF MANKIND by Max Lane

There are a lot of stories about nyai and their miserable life, however the story of Nyai Ontosoroh, a character of a nyai created by Pramodeya Ananta Toer in his novel entitled This Earth of Mankind is different from most other stories. Pramoedya Ananta Toer is considered as one of the most influential Indonesian novelist. Although he had experienced a lot of difficulty by being imprisoned by the colonial government for his role in the Indonesian revolution, then by Soekarno and Soeharto as a political prisoner, he never stopped writing.

His literary works, including novels, short stories and essays, have been translated into 39 languages Diani Toer was also the only Indonesian writer that received the honour candidacy of the Nobel Prize of literature 7. As a result, he won international acclaim and his name became very popular to the international literary world, and thereby Toer successfully contributed to the significance of Indonesian literature history.

He succeeded in proving that he was an idealist and a dedicated writer.

All of his works were inspired by political and social situations which were happening at that time. Max Lane was the second scretary in the Australian embassy in Jakarta. After his translation of The Buru Quartet, he was recalled back to his country.

Set in the early 19th century, This Earth of Mankind portrays the life of the Indonesian people under the Dutch colonization. The interesting part of the novel is the strong component of colonialism, capitalist and feminist issues which are sweetly blended in a beautiful and touching love story.

The use of historical setting as its background also becomes the strength of this novel. In addition, Toer knew how to apply powerful language in composing his novels.

One of the important characters in the book is Sanikem, which is also known as Nyai Ontosoroh. Sanikem was born in a respected Javanese family. Her father, Sastrotomo, was the only person in the village who could read and write. With his ability, Sastrotomo was able to work in a big factory as a clerk. He worked very diligently and his salary and commission rose every year, but he was not satisfied.

He always wanted a higher position; a cashier of the Tulangan sugar factory in Sidoarjo, a job that he believed would raise him up higher in the eyes of the world. Finally, one day Sastrotomo dream came to reality. He was promised a position as a cashier by Tuan Besar Kuasa, a rich Dutch man, along with the agreement that he would give his daughter, Sanikem, who was only 14 years old, to Tuan Besar Kuasa — not to be married but to become his concubine or nyai.

This inequality between men and women is sharpen by the existence of the Dutch colonialism. It is, rather, that, both as object of colonialist historiography and as subject of insurgency, the ideological construction of gender keeps the male dominant Spivak Her role in the story is really insignificant and unimportant that she is nameless. When her husband sells their daughter, Sanikem, to a Dutch master, she has no power to prevent it even though she really disagrees with it.

Thus, Sanikem hated his father for being so cruel and her mother as well, for being so submissive and powerless. She also despises the Dutch because they are the primary reason that she suffers.

If it were not for pleasing the Dutch men, she would not have to live a life as a concubine. It leads Sanikem to the awareness of the oppression toward the native women as well as realizes that the oppression is caused by the colonialism. She wants to be different from her mother, so that if she ever has any daughter, her daughter will not have the same faith as hers.

The writer is really interested in this issue and thus wishes to analyze these three characters in order to find out whether or not that they are aware of the oppression and how they deal with it. The writer also wishes to examine why the social system in that era leads to the women oppression and and how they relate to each other.

Statement of the Problems Based on the background of the study above, the writer comes up with two research questions: 1. How does she struggle against the oppression and what does her struglle result into?

Objective of the Study The objective of the study intends to answer the questions as have been mentioned in the statement of the problem. This study determines to answer the questions above: 1. This study also wants to see how she becomes aware of the inequality between men and women in Javanese patriarchal system and how she views and responds to it. The writer expects that the reader could gain a comprehensive understanding about the life of Javanese women in the 19th century and get a clear picture about women slavery problem in Java at that time and learn something from it so that such thing will not happen again.

Scope and Limitation To keep the study in the expected field, the writer limits the characters that will be analysed in to one specific figure of Javanese women in the text which is Sanikem. The writer argues that her figure can represent all of the Javanese women that comes from the lower-middle class at that time. For Pramoedya, the publishing of This Earth of Mankind signified his "determination, sincerity, and resolution to invest in the development of democracy in Indonesia - and not a democracy built upon colonialism, but a democracy that is the result of our own efforts".

Within a few months of being published, several publishers in Hong Kong , Malaysia , the Netherlands , and Australia approached the publishers, Hasta Mitra, for permission to prepare translations. Pramoedya as the author would receive royalties on these translations, while the role of Hasta Mitra was only to act as agents. By November, Hasta Mitra had published its third edition, and had sold as many as 10, copies.

The book was well-received critically, acclaimed as "the best work of literature of our times", while the Armed Forces daily newspaper, published by the headquarters of the Indonesian Armed Forces called it "a new contribution to the treasury of Indonesian literature". This Earth of Mankind was banned by the Attorney General of Indonesia in on the grounds that it promoted Marxist-Leninist doctrines and Communism , even though neither doctrine is mentioned in the book.

Initially, the Ampat Lima printing house, which actually printed This Earth of Mankind , were asked not to produce any more works published by Hasta Mitra. The editors of major media organizations were contacted, to the effect that they were not allowed to review or praise This Earth of Mankind or any other of Pramoedya's works.

In April , various New Order youth groups held discussion sessions which criticized the work of Pramoedya. These discussions were trumpeted by the mass media as evidence of the disapproval of 'the people'. Subsequently, these discussions provided an important justification for the eventual banning of the work by the Attorney General.

The Association of Indonesian Publishers IKAPI , which were organizing an exhibition of the books of that year, suddenly sent a letter to the address of Hasta Mitra, revoking Hasta Mitra's membership in the association, despite the fact that the committee had been enthusiastic about inviting the publisher to become a member and be involved in its activities.

Newspapers which had previously been sympathetic became increasingly reluctant to give space to the author, and there were even several pieces of writing, ready to be published, which were suddenly rejected just because their authors had praised the work of Pramoedya. In the regulation, among other things, were mentioned a letter from Suharto which had been written a week previously, and a meeting with the Minister of the Interior on 18 May The banning of the book was entirely political and had nothing to do with the books' literary qualities, scholarly arguments nor the official reason that the books were pro-communist.

All bookshops and agents were visited by people from the Attorney General's office and all copies of This Earth of Mankind and Child of All Nations were confiscated. In fact, several of them took the initiative and voluntarily surrendered copies of the books.

However, by August , only copies of the books had been confiscated from the close to 20, copies in circulation. The Ampat Lima company, which had originally printed the two novels also ceased trading because of pressure from the Attorney General's office and the Interior Ministry. This Earth of Mankind is also in the process of becoming the subject of an Indonesian language film.

As it is known that Java has a very complicated and structural system, the implementation of women oppression is inevitably huge.

For Pramoedya, education is the key to changing one's fate. Most of the reviews in the mainstream media in the West have been kind also to the English translations.
