Abstract

This thesis discusses the Lucas Beauchamp?s racial problems and how he copes with them in William Faulkner?s Intruder in the Dust. This topic interests the writer since it involves an issue which always exists in the history of the humankind, that is, racial problem. The writer uses literary approach, that is, the theory of characterization and the theory of conflict to analyze racial problems that happens to Lucas. In addition, the writer also uses sociological concepts concerning race, especially white and black people. The writer of this thesis discusses two things that are divided into several parts. First, Lucas Beauchamp?s racial problems that are divided into two parts which are self-denial as a black person and racial prejudice from white society. Second, the ways Lucas Beauchamp copes with his problems that are divided into two parts: being realistic and being a peacekeeping person. In analyzing the topic, the writer knows that the racial problems, the problem it depicts are not solved by improving or even merely enforcing laws, but by changing people?s moral presupposition, way of thinking, in short their heart. The writer of this thesis concludes that the Black could have the equal rights as the White, if the Black are willing to do some effort.
