Abstract

The research is entitled “A Semiotic Analysis on Eldorado poem by Edgar Allan Poe”. The poem Eldorado means the knight who had long journey to search a gold. The Eldorado poem is representative of Poe’s dreams. This study is aimed to know the meaning of the symbols of Gallant knight, Eldorado, shadow, a pilgrim shadow, shade, and over the mountains related to the socio-historical issue. This thesis has two research questions which are what symbols does Edgar Allan Poe describe the socio-historical in his time and what are the meanings of symbol from those anaylzed poem. In this study, the writer applies descriptive qualitative method and typically library research. The data are in the form of poem. The thesis applies semiotic approach in order to know the meaning of symbol inside the poem that has relation with socio�historical elements that happen in the past. Further, this thesis uses semiotic theory by Charles Sanders Pierce, in which to find a symbol of Eldorado poem related to the socio-historical. The results of the analysis shows that Eldorado poem by Edgar Allan Poe clearly a person. The symbol of a gallant knight, Eldorado, shadow, a pilgirm shadow, shade, and over the mountains represent the meaning, where actually Eldorado is true of a wealthy city made of gold. However, Eldorado is not a place but a person. The whole journey of europians to find a golden city, is in vain. Eldorado's poem is related to the symbol of time in 1849 in California, where the attitude of the Muisca tribe is different from the people of Europe who see gold as a symbol of wealth, as well as power. Furthermore, the minds of Europeans who heard the story were only fascinated by how much gold was thrown into the lake or buried in shrines throughout Colombia. Not the meaning of gold itself. That is why Poe revealead a poem entitled Eldorado which means that Eldorado itself was actually a rich king who had covered his entire body with a gold. Keywords: Semiotic, triadic model
