Abstract

The structure of Javanese society is shaped by social groups stratified on the basis of economic and religious perspectives. The grouping of societies on the basis of economics distinguishes between wong cilik and priyayi, while grouping on the basis of divinity distinguishes between abangan and santri. The relationship between the two social groups is very dynamic, so there is often friction. The social dynamics of Javanese society are recorded and represented in literary works, especially novels published in the 1980s. The novel trilogy of “Ronggeng Dukuh Paruk” by Ahmad Tohari represents the Javanese culture subculture of the Banyumas variant and the santri/Islamic world view that flourished in the 1970s when Indonesian Muslims were 'forced' to embrace the
ideology of Pancasila as a single principle in all aspects of its life.
