Abstract

„Dependency on the West‟ is a crucial issue, but it happens without people realize what the meaning behind it. The reason is because the notion about the superiority of the West that underlies the dependency itself has been accepted as a universal truth since long time ago. A novel entitled When My Name Was Keoko portrays how Japanese colonization has made Korean people suffer, not only because the Japanese has taken the authority of Korea but also because they try to erase Korean identity (Assimilation Period). This suffering leads Keoko, a Korean little girl in the novel, into such a dependency on America (Western country). This study focused to find out how Keoko‟s dependency on America was portrayed in this novel. Because this novel is a children‟s literature, this study also focused to find out how didacticism about anti-colonialism was conveyed in this novel. The theory that was used in this study was postcolonial criticism suggested by Edward Said called Orientalism. The result of this study showed that Keoko‟s dependency on America was portrayed in the novel as a manifestation of Keoko‟s resistance toward the Japanese. It became a form of Keoko‟s inferiority complex toward the Japanese and also a form of Keoko‟s avowal toward America‟s superiority. The result also showed that didacticism about anti-colonialism conveyed in this novel was ambiguous since it was also promoting colonialism at the same time.
