Abstract

The main purpose of this paper writing is to show the criticism to capitalism that gives miserable life to working class as represented in Upton Sinclair's The Jungle. While in analysing the extrinsic aspects of the novel, the writer uses some theories about capitalism, Marxist Literary Criticism, and alienation.

The result of the research shows that there are a lot of criticisms to capitalism because capitalism becomes the main factor that gives miserable life to working class. In The Jungle, capitalism gives influence to social aspects of human life that lead the miserable life of Jugis and his family as the representation of working class. Capitalists class also exploits and treats working class badly.
