Derri Ris Riana

Abstract


Many studies on spells ( Mantra ) have already been done, for its
importance of revealing the word’s meaning which has strong magic element and digging out the local wisdom contained in it. By using the method of oral literature research and poetic theory, this study wants to reveal the meaning of the four spells that exist in the book of Mantra, Syair, dan Pantun di Tengah Kehidupan Modern by Korrie Layun Rampan: “Mantra Agar Siuman dari Pingsan”, “Mantra Menghentikan Anjing Menyalak”, “Mantra Menangkap Buaya”, and “Mantra Menjaring Pelanduk”. The result shows that those spells
have different meaning and purposes, because they depends on people’s needs. As to emphasizing and creating magical atmosphere, almost all of the spell words are repeated and use the other words that have the same meaning. The meanings implied in the spell also contain people’s local wisdom. Therefore, the existence of spell has to be maintained because it is a local cultural assets, as the local identity that contributes national cultural assets as the nation identity.
