Mugijatna, M. It belongs to cultural studies. The discussion is divided into two sections studied by applying theory of archetypes and intertextuality. It focuses on the analysis of the characters, characterizations, and plot of the novel. The findings of this analysis are then continued to analyze the ideology of the author conveyed in the novel by also connecting it with the situations in the United States where Riordan lives. Although Riordan may have his own interpretations toward Greek mythological characters appeared in his novel, their characteristics are still stuck closely to the original versions of those existed in Greek myths.

Although Riordan may have his own interpretations toward Greek mythological characters appeared in his novel, their characteristics are still stuck closely to the original versions of those existed in Greek myths.
The statuses he bears both as a father and as an ex-teacher also take part in shaping his ideology. First published in , the setting of place of the novel is the United States in this modern era. It explains why Riordan attached those labels into Percy and the other new demigods he created. He did this to encourage his kid. Riordan who realized that Haley was mostly interested in Greek mythology began telling great heroic stories from Greek myths.
When he ran out myths to tell, Riordan made up new stories with Percy Jackson as the main character. He also characterized its characters in a quite different way suitable for its setting.
How did Riordan combine the ancient and the modern within one interesting story? Literature Review This research belongs to cultural studies which is such a kind of multi- disciplinary studies.
As a representation of life, literature also may contain many aspects exist in this world. Archetypes are the unknowable basic forms personified or concretized in recurring images, symbols, or patterns which may include motifs such as the quest or the heavenly ascent, recognizable character types such as the trickster or the hero, symbols such as the apple or snake, or images such as crucifixion.
An author surely owns such a kind of ideology and way of thinking which might influence and be influenced by other people within the same society and outside that. Turner stated that ideology is one of the central terms within cultural studies The ideology is studied by applying the theory of intertextuality which allows us to connect two or more data. Percy is a son of Poseidon, the god of sea, and Sally Jackson, a mortal woman. However, Perseus in Greek myths is told to be a son of Zeus — one of the big three gods along with Poseidon and Hades.
Did Riordan make this big mistake accidentally? He deliberately arranged it that way. Percy Jackson and Perseus the Greek hero are two totally different characters.
However, both of them share the same characteristics as typical Greek heroes.
They carried out a quest. His face had that same brooding look that had always gotten me branded a rebel. But his eyes, seagreen like mine. Although feeling scared and anxious at first, Percy never really held back and bravely fought against all obstacles they faced during the quest, including a battle with Ares the god of war.
In addition, instead of keeping his true intention in accepting the quest, i. This mentor character is also often described as the wise old man who gives supernatural aids to the hero.
However, Riordan decided to revive him again in his novel.
He handed down a magical sword called Anaklusmos or Riptide to Percy before the boy went for his quest. In the novel, Percy as the hero went into what Campbell called the heroic journey. To start this journey, the so-called Herald character appears to announce Call to Adventure. Chiron was the one who explained the whole situation and told that Percy should take a quest up.
However, there is something else which also gave leading messages to Percy and thus fit the characteristics of the Herald. It is the Oracle, which was famous and often appeared in ancient stories of Greek myths to announce thing that can leads the whole plot of the story.

We picked up my friends Annabeth and Thalia on the way. Sleet and snow pounded the highway.
Annabeth, Thalia, and I hadn't seen each other in months, but between the blizzard and the thought of what we were about to do, we were too nervous to talk much. Except for my mom. She talks more when she's nervous. By the time we finally got to Westover Hall, it was getting dark, and she'd told Annabeth and Thalia every embarrassing baby story there was to tell about me. Thalia wiped the fog off the car window and peered outside.
This'll be fun. It was all black stone, with towers and slit windows and a big set of wooden double doors. It stood on a snowy cliff overlooking this big frosty forest on one side and the gray churning ocean on the other.
We'll be okay. I'm worried, Percy.
It was bad enough I had to depend on my mom to drive me to my battles. Her blond hair was tucked into a ski cap and her gray eyes were the same color as the ocean. She thinks Annabeth is the most levelheaded demigod ever to hit eighth grade. She's sure Annabeth often keeps me from getting killed. She's right, but that doesn't mean I have to like it. Jackson," Thalia said. You have my cell phone number?
And a golden drachma in case you need to contact camp? We'll be fine. Come on, guys.
If my mom told one more story about how cute I looked in the bathtub when I was three years old, I was going to burrow into the snow and freeze myself to death. Annabeth and Thalia followed me outside. The wind blew straight through my coat like ice daggers.
Once my mother's car was out of sight, Thalia said, "Your mom is so cool, Percy.
You ever get in touch with your mom? Thalia was great at giving evil looks, what with the punk clothes she always wears—the ripped-up army jacket, black leather pants and chain jewelry, the black eyeliner and those intense blue eyes. But the look she gave me now was a perfect evil "ten. I wonder what he found here that made him send the distress call.
The oak doors groaned open, and the three of us stepped into the entry hall in a swirl of snow. All I could say was, "Whoa. The walls were lined with battle flags and weapon displays: I mean, I knew Westover was a military school and all, but the decorations seemed like overkill.
My hand went to my pocket, where I kept my lethal ballpoint pen, Riptide. I could already sense something wrong in this place. Something dangerous. Thalia was rubbing her silver bracelet, her favorite magic item. I knew we were thinking the same thing. A fight was coming. Annabeth started to say, "I wonder where—" The doors slammed shut behind us. It sounded like dance music.
We stashed our overnight bags behind a pillar and started down the hall. We hadn't gone very far when I heard footsteps on the stone floor, and a man and woman marched out of the shadows to intercept us. They both had short gray hair and black military-style uniforms with red trim.
The woman had a wispy mustache, and the guy was clean-shaven, which seemed kind of backward to me. They both walked stiffly, like they had broomsticks taped to their spines. I'd been so focused on getting to Grover and finding out what was wrong, I hadn't considered that someone might question three kids sneaking into the school at night. We hadn't talked at all in the car about how we would get inside. I said, "Ma'am, we're just—" "Ha! You shall be eee-jected!
He pronounced his J like in Jacques, He was tall, with a hawkish face. His nostrils flared when he spoke, which made it really hard not to stare up his nose, and his eyes were two different colors—one brown, one blue—like an alley cat's. I figured he was about to toss us into the snow, but then Thalia stepped forward and did something very weird.
She snapped her fingers. The sound was sharp and loud. Maybe it was just my imagination, but I felt a gust of wind ripple out from her hand, across the room. It washed over all of us, making the banners rustle on the walls. You remember: I'm Thalia.
And this is Annabeth and Percy. We're in the eighth grade. I didn't know what Thalia was thinking. Now we'd probably get punished for lying and thrown into the snow. But the man seemed to be hesitating. He looked at his colleague. Gottschalk, do you know these students? Despite the danger we were in, I had to bite my tongue to keep from laughing. A teacher named Got Chalk? He had to be kidding. The woman blinked, like someone had just woken her up from a trance.
