Abstract

The study of children's literature in Indonesia needs to be more extensive. The history of children's literature in Indonesia is deadlocked and lacks references. The curation of original Indonesian children's literature still needs to be improved, so studies on Indonesian classic children's literature are rarely conducted. This study aims to describe early Indonesian children's literature novels in Vorstenlanden 1910-1940. Vorstenlanden is the area under the rule of four monarchy fractions of the Sultanate of Mataram, namely Surakarta, Yogyakarta, Mangkunegaran, and Pakualaman. This study uses descriptive analysis to reveal historical facts about Indonesian children's literature novels in Vorstenlanden between 1910-1940. Searching archives and libraries obtained data. The analysis results show that several children's literary novels published by Vorstenlanden 1910-1940 were considered significant. The author of these novels is Jasawidagda (Bocah Mangkunegaran, Kirti Njunjung Drajat, and Cariyos Lelampahanipun Peksi Gelatik) and Soeratman Sastradiardja (Bocah ing Gunung and Tig lan Tor). Children's literature in Vorstenlanden 1910-1940 was marginalized for discussion in history because the intellectual perception at that time considered children's literature low-quality, packaged in small and thin books.
