Abstract

This study aims to reveal the urgency and reality of the life of donyane pelanyah (the world of prostitution) who are expressed and appear in modern Javanese poetry texts (guritan) as a form of literary work and a product of society’s culture. The poems that will be discussed are poems entitled “Balada Juwariyah Kembang Pelanyah” by Poer Adhie Prawoto and “Wayah Pensiyun” by Rini Tri Puspohardini. Both are Javanese poets and writers across generations who are well known in the world of modern Javanese literature. Methodologically, this research used a descriptive qualitative approach which was analyzed using the critical paradigm of cultural studies. Theoretically, this research uses a semiotic approach. Based on the results of an analysis of the geguritan text entitled “Wayah Pensiun” and “Balada Juwariyah”, it is revealed that sexuality in the world of prostitution is one of the economic commodities. That is the reality in society. The prostitute in the text becomes a symbol of other women (sex workers) who are forced and forced to work as prostitutes or commercial sex workers. More precisely forced by circumstances, especially economic issues.
