- Literary work comes from a certain civilization background. The creation of Rendra’s poetry was greatly helped by the Old Testament. Social criticism in Rendra’s poetry has a common thread with social criticism in the book of Isaiah. The purpose of this study is to describe the influence of the book of Isaiah in Rendra’s poetry, especially those related to social criticism. This study uses an intertextuality approach to analyse the relationship between the two works, The Book of Isaiah and Rendra’s poems. The results of this study found that Rendra’s social criticism ideas came from the Book of Isaiah. This influence is not only manifested in terms of ideas, but also includes the choice of words for social criticism, which is taken explicitly from the book of Isaiah. This finding at the same time dismissed the notion that the social background of Rendra’s criticism was purely from the events that occurred around Rendra’s life, but beyond that the background for his social criticism was heavily influenced by the Old Testament.
