Abstract

The study is a humanistic psychological analysis on Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca . This study focuses on how Maslow’s principles of humanistic theory are reflected in Mrs. de Winter’s characters at the late of nineteenth century. The research aims at analyzing Daphne du Maurier’ Rebecca from Humanistic Psychological perspective. This theory offers a radically different picture of human being, that basically a human being is born good at least neutral, and his / her behavior is done consciously and freely guided by his / her positive personality. In conducting the study, the researcher uses the theory of Humanistic Psychological perspective. The theory of Humanistic psychological perspective is appropriate because the theory includes the characteristic of self-actualizing people such as, More Efficient Perception of Reality, Acceptance of Self, Others, and Nature, etc and its conflicts resulted from them. While the novel itself deals with the struggle of young woman from lower class who, is inexperienced in life to fight for her acknowledgement in her environment. The outcome of the study shows the following conclusions. First, based on structural analysis, it is clear that through the novel, the writer of the novel wants to illustrate how a woman could actualize herself through her roles as a wife. Second, based on the psychological analysis, Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca tells about self-actualization of Mrs. de Winter in order to show her existence in the society.
