Abstract

The purpose of this study is to explain doxa in Indonesian literature during the New Order era limited for the period of 1980-1998. Doxa shows the existence of the construction of Indonesian literary arena. Doxa is a set of fundamental beliefs or dogmas. Doxa also means as a belief which is accepted as it is and never been questioned. Doxa directs a person's perspective in perceiving the world or arena in which it is located. Pierre Bourdieu‟s theory of Cultural production Arena is used to explain the existence of doxa in the construction of the Indonesian literary arena. The library research or literary study is used to collect the data related to the existence of doxa in Indonesian literary arena during the time and at times of Wiji Thukul's literary practice. Pierre Bourdieu's cultural production arena theory is used to analyze the data in the form of texts related to the subject matter obtained from books, magazines, newspapers, and writings. The results showed that 1) the Indonesian literary arena was dominated by universal literary groups. Instruments of mastery through doxa and support from the government (state) of the new order; 2) the opposing group and the plaintiff are the contextual literary group along with other literary possibilities; 3) Wiji Thukul started his leterary practice when the universal literary doctrine was very strong which made him fail.
