Abstract

The aim of this study is to analyze the character and feminism of the main character in this novel that is Daisy Miller. This novel entitled "Daisy Miller" is written by Henry James in 1878. This novel is interesting to analyze because it is about the woman‘s power to go against the culture or rules for women especially the American girl who goes against the Europeans‘ rules. The objectives of this study are (1) To describe the character of Daisy Miller as the main character in the "Daisy Miller" novel; and (2) to express the feminism of Daisy Miller as the main character in the "Daisy Miller" novel. In this study, the researcher uses Rosemarie Tong's theory, in which the author categorizes feminism into four types: liberal feminism, radical feminism, Marxist feminism, and social feminism. In this study, the researcher used qualitative research and the descriptive method to analyze and describe the data. The findings of this study show that (1) Daisy Miller possesses characteristics such as bravery, intelligence, a sharp tongue, and independence; and (2) Daisy Miller demonstrates feminism through several actions, such as her opposition to European society, her preference for following her heart over following the rules of society, which treat women differently than men; and she is an extraordinary and powerful woman who can still be herself without adhering to strict rules for women in society. The dominant feminism in this novel is radical feminism (radical cultural feminism).
