[ Read Online Bumi Manusia · woodwork PDF ] by Pramoedya Ananta Toer ¼ Dulu seorang teman pernah berkata Jika Amerika memiliki F.
C Fitzgerald, Perancis memiliki Victor Hugo, Rusia memiliki Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Jerman memiliki Johann Wolfgang von Goethe dan Jepang memiliki Haruki MurakamiMaka, Indonesia memiliki seorang Pramoedya Ananta Toer Penasaran, karena saya sudah baca beberapa karya sastra dunia, tapi baru sedikit karya sastra Indonesia yang saya baca Maka pada suatu kesempatan saya sempatkan membaca karya Pramoedya yang paling dikenal Bumi Manusia Bumi Manusia adalah buku pertama dari Tetralogi Pulau buru yang menceritakan tentang pertentangan batin yang dialami seorang intelektual Indonesia pada masa pra kemerdekaan bernama Minke terinspirasi dari RM Tirto Adisuryo Bersama Minke kita sebagai pembaca diajak untuk mengalami langsung serta terlibat dalam masa perjuangan pra kemerdekaan Indonesia, juga tentang pandanga This book English title The Earth of Mankind was recommended by an academic friend who learned Indonesian to read it in the author s native language impressive The subject is serious a love affair between a pure blood Javanese and a mixed race Indo set against the backdrop of the emergence of Indonesian anti colonial sentiment near the start of the 20th century Unfortunately, I found the almost soap opera ish style hard to get accustomed to.
Roman Tetralogi Buru Mengambil Latar Belakang Dan Cikal Bakal Nation Indonesia Di Awal Abad Ke Dengan Membacanya Waktu Kita Dibalikkan Sedemikian Rupa Dan Hidup Di Era Membibitnya Pergerakan Nasional Mula Mula, Juga Pertautan Rasa, Kegamangan Jiwa, Percintaan, Dan Pertarungan Kekuatan Anonim Para Srikandi Yang Mengawal Penyemaian Bangunan Nasional Yang Kemudian Kelak Melahirkan Indonesia ModernRoman Bagian Pertama Bumi Manusia, Sebagai Periode Penyemaian Dan Kegelisahan Dimana Minke Sebagai Aktor Sekaligus Kreator Adalah Manusia Berdarah Priyayi Yang Semampu Mungkin Keluar Dari Kepompong Kejawaannya Menuju Manusia Yang Bebas Dan Merdeka, Di Sudut Lain Membelah Jiwa Ke Eropa An Yang Menjadi Simbol Dan Kiblat Dari Ketinggian Pengetahuan Dan PeradabanPram Menggambarkan Sebuah Adegan Antara Minke Dengan Ayahnya Yang Sangat Sentimentil Aku Mengangkat Sembah Sebagaimana Biasa Aku Lihat Dilakukan Punggawa Terhadap Kakekku Dan Nenekku Dan Orangtuaku, Waktu Lebaran Dan Yang Sekarang Tak Juga Kuturunkan Sebelum Bupati Itu Duduk Enak Di Tempatnya Dalam Mengangkat Sembah Serasa Hilang Seluruh Ilmu Dan Pengetahuan Yang Kupelajari Tahun Demi Tahun Belakangan Ini Hilang Indahnya Dunia Sebagaimana Dijanjikan Oleh Kemajuan Ilmu Sembah Pengagungan Pada Leluhur Dan Pembesar Melalui Perendahan Dan Penghinaan Diri Sampai Sedatar Tanah Kalau Mungkin Uh, Anak Cucuku Tak Kurelakan Menjalani Kehinaan Ini Kita Kalah, Ma, Bisikku Kita Telah Melawan, Nak, Nyo, Sebaik Baiknya, Sehormat Hormatnya This Earth of Mankind is the first novel of the Buru Quartet, so called because it was composed when Pramoedya Ananta Toer was a political prisoner on Buru Island in the 60s I say composed rather than written because the first version of it was told orally to his fellow prisoners He had apparently just about finished the research and planning when he was arrested and all his notes and books were destroyed.
Which is an immediately intriguing back story, although the relationship between the novel and his imprisonment is not particularly direct, in that Pramoedya was imprisoned by Suharto s military dictatorship as part of an anti Communist purge, whereas the novel is set at the very end of the C19th 1898, in fact in a Java which is part of the Dutch East Indies.
Still, it is, among other things, a clearly political novel it d In all honesty, I didn t like the novel as much as I liked the other two required reading novels for Oriental Literature class, The Temple of the Golden Pavilion and The Rope of Ash , nor do I think it is as impressive as the other Asian Literary works that we have read in class, like the short stories of Lu Xun The first few parts actually didn t get my attention There are points in the story that I asked myself where the book was getting at or what it is trying to say I know it is a post colonial literature, so naturally I was looking for a Political commentary but was disappointed that I got a love story that lacks backbone Minke and Annelies fell inlove immediately after they met and I am not really a fan of the kind of story I was annoyed by Annelies She was being immature and helpless She was very anti feminist and she doesn t do muc Three stars because it introduced me to a slice of Javanese Indonesian history and Dutch colonialism there, but was a difficult read at times Though Toer takes a pretty clear side against the Dutch and its imperialism, he gives a complex telling and analysis of Javanese life However, the language felt a bit old which it is , and so got got a little repetitive and dry Still, it s worth reading and admiring the clarity that Toer had at the time in looking at his country.
This is a long delayed review, partly because I must admit I never finished reading it and partly because I so wanted to like this Indonesian author having read about his time as a political prisoner in the 1960s As a history teacher, I did appreciate how Ananta Toer captures 19th Century colonial life and the caste like system that was instituted by the Dutch The romantic story between the native Javanese boy and the mixed race girl at the centre of the novel, however, did not feel realistic to me and that is why time and time again I could only read a chapter or two before putting the book down.



I got this book to read while I was on Java I didn t dislike it, but it definitely dragged I was also hoping for something that would give me of a feel for the island than this did, akin to The Gift of Rain or Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil in terms of being really steeped in the setting.
Cerita.

selamanya tentang manusia, kehidupannya, bukan kematiannya Ya biarpun yang ditampilkannya itu hewan, raksasa atau dewa ataupun hantu Dan tak ada yang lebih sulit dipahami daripada sang manusia jangan anggap remeh si manusia, yang kelihatannya begitu sederhana biarpun penglihatanmu setajam mata elang pikiranmu setajam pisau cukur, perabaanmu lebih peka daripada dewa, pendengaranmu dapat menangkap musik dan ratap tangis kehidupan pengetahuanmu tentang manusia takkan bakal bisa kemput Pramoedya Ananta Toer dalam Bumi Manusia Aku adalah manusia Tentu yang tak sempurna Karena kealpaan dan lupa tak bisa lepas dariku Aku hanyalah manusia biasa Aku bukanlah dewa dengan segala ke Maha annya Sempurna adalah kata yang tidak un Pretty awful as a work of literary fiction or else a truly terrible translation of a masterpiece , but interesting as an anthropological document of colonial era Java.
