Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This article aims to examine the conflict described by Arena Wati in his novel Busa Kalbu (2002). This novel shows the conflict that occurs in a Malay political party dealing with the upcoming General Assembly. The General Assembly includes the selection of top leaders with the conflict taking various forms related to power struggle, such as hostility, drop-passing and corruption and money politics. The study found the general conference to which the author refers to is actually the General Assembly. It ends with the UMNO Conference. The paper blends with the author's creativity to turn it into creative reality.
