Abstract

This research aims to explore and describe the traditional representation of Buton in fiction by Wa Ode Wulan Ratna. To be able to realize it, then the literary approach used is a new historicism approach. This approach was first introduced by Stephen Greenblat of America. In its implementation, this approach positioned literary texts within the framework of non-literary texts. This approach emphasizes the fascination between literary text and the various socio-cultural potentials that surround it. In this case, the fictional text by Wa Ode Wulan Ratna will be positioned within the framework of the traditional socio-cultural traditions of the Buton people located in Southeast Sulawesi. The research method used is a qualitative descriptive method. The results showed as follows. First, the socio-cultural practice of the Traditional Buton tradition in the fictional Wa Ode Wulan Ratna experienced the opposition of the main female characters. The woman’s main character’s relationship with her lover is not supported by her parents because she is from an erred community. Second, the social understanding that comes against the backdrop of the Traditional Buton tradition in fiction is mentioned to test the virginity of the main female character before the onset of marriage. Third, the ideology supported by the fictional text associated with the traditional traditions of the Buton people is a feminist ideology against the local traditions of the local community.
