Abstract

Literature and the natural environment are two things that are interconnected. The natural environment is used as a source of inspiration for the birth of a literary work. Literary works contain a reflection of human behavior towards their environment. This can be seen in one of the regional literatures called the kaba Minangkabau. Kaba is a literary work that initially developed through an oral system and then as progress was published in writing into book form. Kaba contains many philosophies of life, education and teaching, social obligations, and advice whose duty is to educate listeners and readers how to live in a society and culture. Literature and nature need harmony, so that humans can live comfortably. Harmonization will be well maintained if living things, especially humans who have reason, can take care of nature properly and correctly. This research method is critical analysis. Validation using triangulation theory. The analysis technique uses flow analysis techniques.
