Abstract

Ranita Verawati Habibah (14121310342) AESTHETIC STANCE IN READING POEMS: A PORTRAIT OF EFL LEARNERS’ READING COMPREHENSION IN ENGLISH LANGUAGE TEACHING DEPARTMENT This study was explored the issue on how EFL learners explore aesthetic stance in reading poems. The study was motivated by Rosenblatt (1983, p. 33), who says that text must be read and interpreted by the individual in which the reading will be influenced by the individual’s experience and stance (as cited in Sanders, 2012). Meaning construction during the reading process of a literary text is important and can take place in the role of reader stance. It means that, the study of aesthetic stance is important role in develop students' language skills. This study aims (1) to investigate how EFL learners approach the poem and (2) to clarify how EFL learners explore their stance in reading poems in an attempt to reach comprehension. This study is qualitative research, exactly descriptive qualitative. The primary sources of data are conducted through interview in order to explore EFL learners’ aesthetic stance in reading poems. The secondary sources of data are conducted through document analysis. The results of study reveals that EFL learners tend to use different activities in each strategy. There are (1) in pre-reading phase, EFL learners activate their schemata when reading poems. The strategies that EFL learners used in this phase are specify a purpose for reading, take the steps, preview the text and predict the content of the text or section of the text, and (2) in while reading phase, EFL learners connect their background knowledge which tend to general view. Meanwhile, in after reading phase, the stance more explored when respondents make a sense with the text. They make a bigger connection than previous phase. It can be concluded that in after reading phase, their stance more explored by relating to what the connection did in pre-reading phase and while reading phase. Keywords: Aesthetic Stance, Reading poems, Reading Comprehension
