Judul THE STYLE OF O. HENRY AS REFLECTED IN THE FURNISHED ROOM AND THE COP AND THE ANTHEM
Abstrak Short story portrays human life. Each of the author of story has his/her own characteristic in his/her writing style. The characteristic of the author which is reflected in his/her works can be an attraction for literature reader to enjoy the story. This final project is about style writing of O. Henry in his works. The aims of the study are to analyze O. Henry’s style in his short stories. I employ descriptive qualitative and stylistic approach to prove that O. Henry has his own style and it is reflected in his short stories Furnished Room and The Cop and The Anthem. The main source of the study was two short stories which are created by O. Henry. It is descriptive qualitative since the data taken from the short story was in the from of words, phrases, sentences and dialogue. The data is classified in three categories based on Winterowd’s theory about style analysis. They are sentence structure, diction and figure of speech. The data are gained by reading closely in the finding data, classifying, calculating the finding in the simple table, interpreting and drawing conclusion. From the finding and interpretation, I conclude that O. Henry has his own characteristic in his short story. It is proven by the far fetched diction that he chosen, the sentence structure which is dominated by complex sentence and the figure of speech that O. Henry uses in his works. His unique characteristic of writing style like that can be an attraction for reader. His works portray some of ironic condition in human life. Hopefully this study is useful for those who are interesting in O.Henry’s work and style of fiction. Moreover, I wish the study can encourage the students of English Litearture to conduct other studies about style in fiction.
