Abstract

This paper aims at describing subjugation of saga story in oral literature. Saga story is a fairy tale that illustrates and reveals someone’s bravery and heroism story that is connected with reality. The analysis of this paper focuses on the subjugation of society through the story and investigates the values illustrated in the story that can strengthen the social institution in society. Subjugation itself is an act of defeating someone and gaining control over someone or something. This paper uses Ruth Finnegan’s approach on oral literature regarding its function, explaining that one of the functions of oral literature is to strengthen the current power of the structure of society rather than undermining it. The process of subjugation makes the power of institution become stronger because the inherited values support it. The result shows that there are several values that tends to preserve therefore the subjugation of society does exist through the inheritance of the story from generation to generation.
