Abstract

The research aimed to discuss nature as the ally to the renewal of woman life in Maya Angelou’s poem entitled “Woman Work.” The speaker of the poem found her comfort and strength when she dealt herself with the nature. The topic of the research was revealed by three poetic devices, that is, symbol, personification and apostrophe. The speaker tended to perpetuate nature as her assistant to live her life. Nature is the most important life source of the speaker. Besides the theory of nature, that of ecofeminism was applied to analyze the poem, entitled “Woman Work.” There were three approaches that were used: anthropocentric, formalist and structural approaches. Library research was the technique of data collecting. The finding of the research was the woman felt that nature was important to her because it was the only thing in her life that did not add any stress and was an outlet for the busy day. The speaker of the poem found peace when she was within the nature. She summoned sun, rain, snow, moon, stars and other elements of nature which she wanted most to accompany her for accomplishing her daily routine activities and renew her life for her better tomorrow in order that she was able to survive for completing her days.
