(literature) is derived from the Greek language krites that means
“judge”. Krites itself comes from krinein “judge”;
criterion which means “basic judgment” and kritikos means “judge
kasustraan” (Baribin, 1993). Pradotokusumo (2005) stated that literary
criticism can be interpreted as one of the objects of literary studies (a branch
of the humanities) who conducted the analysis, interpretation, and assessment
of the literary text as a work of art. While Abrams in literature Assessment
(2005) describes that literary criticism is a branch of science that deals with
the formulation, classification, illumination, and assessment of literary
works. Literary criticism has many kind of criticism, one of them is

criticism can be interpreted as one of the objects of literary studies (a
branch of the humanities) who conducted the analysis, interpretation, and
assessment of literary texts.
