Abstract

Literature is a life expression of human beings in the form of experience, thoughts, idea, and feeling in concrete description by using a language as the medium. It enriches the reader’s knowledge and experience about life. That is why the writer analyzes literature, especially novel that focused on conflict as the topic of this study. Conflict is one of the elements of novel, which can help the readers know what the author wants to tell.

This study takes Danielle Steel’s novel, “Kaleidoscope” which is a popular one.

The steps of collecting data of this study are reading and comprehending the novel, identifying the conflict, identifying the types of conflict, coding the novel pages that have a certain type of conflict, and counting the most dominant conflict faced by the main characters. This study used descriptive research method because the writer just wants to find the types of conflict faced by the main characters and there is no treatment as in experimental research.
