Abstract

This thesis is a study of hatred in siblings' relationship in Robert Louis Stevenson's The Master of Ballantrae. They are the two brothers James and Henry Durrie of the House of Durrisdeer, two of the characters in the novel The Master of Ballantrae. Using the theory of characterization and the theory of love and hatred, the thesis writer analyzes the love and hatred, the thesis writer analyzes the love and hatred which exist in the two brothers who at first have very different character traits. The first son, James, represents evil and the second son, Henry, represents virtue. But both hate each other so much that virtue develops into evil in hating the other. It happens when James, who is supposed to be dead, envies Henry, who inherits the title, wealth, and marries James' lover, Alison. Later Henry becomes as evil as James, and both try to defeat each other due to their hatred Finally, both of them cannot reach their dreams but they meet their tragic death. Through the discussion, the thesis writer learns that brotherhood is much more important in life compared to wealth and power. Through a loving brotherhood, people can have a peaceful life.
