Literature is the expression of human being. All life of man has been written in
literature. In other words, the works of literature such as drama, novel and poem describe the
human life. The benefit of literature is the fourth way to get the truth after religion,
philosophy and science. In fact, literature is marginalized as it is not popular in developed
countries like Indonesia as people in developed countries try to fulfil the basic need first and
literature is considered as secondary need. Another reason is that to them enjoying literature
is wasting time.
One way to develop literary analysis is through deconstruction. Reading literary work
is not intended to emphasize on sense as done commonly but deconstruction tends to search
appropriate elements: paradox, contradiction, and irony sense are found in literary work. The
elements sought and understood are in opposite sense. Furthermore to deconstruct an
opposition not by destroying it as a ideal woman has different criteria in every place and time
influenced by its society as in Victorian age an ideal woman should be perfect. That is why
needed deconstruction as every human is liable to make mistake including a woman.
