Abstract

Literature is human’s expression. It is usually taken from human life such as problems, struggle and conflict of life. All of those have been written in literature. People usually have many ways of expressing their feeling, imagination, creation and communication. By reading literary works, especially novel, the readers can get new experience. It can open the readers’ mind about human life with all of its possibilities that they never imagine before. This study focused on Gerda’s jealousy in “The Hollow” novel written by Agatha Christie. The problems were: the causes of Gerda’s jealousy and the effects of her jealousy on herself. This study applied descriptive qualitative design because there was no treatment as found in experimental research. This study used objective approach because it just analyzed the novel itself without studying the author’s life. The object of this study was “The Hollow” novel written by Agatha Christie which focused on the causes of Gerda’s jealousy and the effects of her jealousy on herself. The data were collected from paragraphs and dialogues quotation which referred to the causes and effects of Gerda’s jealousy. Based on the research finding, the causes of Gerda’s jealousy were relational factors (the relationship between John and his nurses, and the relationship between John and his secretary) which made Gerda jealous, and Gerda’s misunderstanding about the relationship between John and his lover in the past, Veronica Cray. These were some effects of Gerda’s jealousy on herself. Firstly, she was suspicious with the relationship between John and Veronica that actually John did not love Veronica anymore. Secondly, she was angry because she felt that John had made her disappointed. Thirdly, she became a murderer. She could not control her emotion, so that she killed John. Fourth, she was shocked. She did not realize that she had killed her husband and thought that she was so cruel. Fifth, she was confused. She could not do anything without John. The last effect of Gerda’s jealousy was depression. She felt lonely after losing her husband and thought that no one could help her to forget the murder she had done.
