This research aims to examine the masculinity and existentialism in The End of Eddy novel. The End of Eddy novel tells about the masculinity differences between Eddy, the main character, to others, and how Eddy face through the problems. In this research, the researcher answers the problems of the study which are: (1) How is Eddy characterized in the masculinity perspective, (2) What characteristics are considered masculine in The End of Eddy, and (3) How does Eddy survive in society. This research uses a qualitative approach to thoroughly, broadly, and deeply explore the situation at The End of Eddy. This study uses two theories which are masculinity from Janet Saltzman Chafetz and Existentialism from Jean-Paul Sartre to analyze masculinity in Eddy's perspective. The masculinity theory by Janet Saltzman Chafetz consists of physical, function, sexually aggressive, emotion, intelligence, interpersonal, and other personal. However, the researcher focuses on the available data, which plot, frame, setting, and characterization. Data was collected by carefully reading The End of Eddy novel and identifying the masculinity standard applied and Eddy's masculinity in The End of Eddy's book. The researcher classifies the data according to Chafetz theory of masculinity in The End of Eddy novel. The analysis is continued by identifying the difference between Eddy's masculinity and masculinity standard applied in society. The results and findings includes Eddy’s masculinity, masculinity standard, and Eddy’s attempts to survive. Chafetz’s theory is used to answer Eddy’s masculinity which are Eddy’s physical, Eddy’s sexually aggressive, Eddy’s emotion, Eddy’s intelligence, and Eddy’s interpersonal. Chafetz’s theory is also used to find masculinity standard which are physical standard, function standard, sexually aggressive standard, emotion standard, and interpersonal standard. The last finding of this research is Eddy’s attempts to survive in society. The researcher uses existentialism theory by Jean-Sartre and finds two results which are succesful attempt and failed attempt.
