Abstract

The purpose of this study was to see how the development of the Sundanese poetry in the past two decades. Guguritan in the Sundanese literature includes the types of old poetry beside mantra, sisindiran, kawih, pupujian, and puisi pantun. However, compared to other old (Sundanese) poetry material, the guguritan is still written and read by the Sundanese. The method used in this study is the analytical description method, in which the guguritan collected in magazines or newspapers is explored to see the extent to which the guguritan is still read by the people. The results obtained indicate that the guguritan in the past two decades is not much written by the author. Therefore, towards the guguritan , there needs to be a very integrated handling effort so that the material of the guguritan can be sustained and developed in the treasures of Sundanese literature.
