- Poet, social capital
The development of Indonesian literature has existed in several periods, in which each of it was influenced by political situations. The cultural backgrounds of the litterateurs, education, surrounding environment, and political views influenced their perspectives in the aesthetical value they used. According to Pierre Bordieu’s perspective, the cultural capital of the poets can influence their literary works, as seen in literary works written by five Indonesian poets in the 2000s, such as Afrizal Malna, Dorothea, Emha Ainun Nadjib, Joko Pinurbo, and Widji Tukul. Most poets’ cultural capitals are high school and university. Their cultural capitals led to the diversity of their literary works. Poets born in metropolitan cities produce works with urban and modern characteristics; poets born in Islamic culture produce religious poems; poets raised in hardship and among poverty and violence produce poems containing protests; while academic environment produces structured poems with a philosophical lesson inside.
