Abstract

This paper aims to give understanding to readers about She Stoops to Conquer drama particularly on its varied meaning related to Kate Hardcastle’s demeanors to Charles Marlow as there is no single absolute meaning in every text. To obtain the varied meaning, the writer uses Jacques Derrida’s deconstruction. Deconstruction is useful to look for binary oppositions in the text and to break these binary oppositions in order to get the varied meaning. The writer finds binary oppositions in the text which explain about Hardcastle’s demeanors to Marlow which are my own manner >< newer fashion, handsome >< beautiful, last >< foremost, be cured >< been threatened, being taught >< unwilling to lay under an obligation, whimsical >< well-looking, modest >< proud, woman of reputation >< barmaid of an inn, public >< private, most virtue >< least, mouths >< bosoms, bashfulness >< confidence, and warm >< cool. From these binary oppositions, it can be assumed that Hardcastle does not stoop to conquer Marlow, yet roses or remains, instead. Eventhough Hardcastle tries to look modest in front of Marlow, it does not mean that she stoops as she is from an upper-class family. Modesty is Marlow’s criteria of his spouse. Thus, Hardcastle’s demeanor to be modest can be considered as roses to suit herself with Marlow’s criteria or remains to suit herself with Marlow’s criteria. It is because Hardcastle is also modest in certain occasions in which she is asked to do so by her father, Mr.Hardcastle.
