Abstract

Serat Menak Lare tells the story of the figure of Amir Hamzah. This study aims to describe (1) beliefs and religious hegemony in Serat Menak Lare; (2) the relevance of Serat Menak Lare as a material for reading literacy of Indonesian language. The research method used is an anthropological literary study approach. The source of data in this study is taken from the book of Menak Lare I-IV by R. Ng. Yasadipura I which has been translated by Sulistijo H.S. The data collection technique used is intensive reading and note taking. The results of research show that religious hegemony is very strong in the spread of Islam. The spread of religion was carried out by invasion to the colonized countries. Furthermore, Serat Menak Lare is very relevant to be used as an alternative reading material in reading literacy activities of Indonesian language in senior high school.
