The transition from the traditional to the modern creates class inequality, as in Wahyu Menulis Puisi by Wahyu Prasetya. In these verses, urban society is a paradoxical subject whose position is in social change. Therefore, this study aims to analyze urban society’s paradoxicalities in positioning middle to lower class subjects. This research was conducted using a qualitative method through a structural approach using the poetry theory developed by Terry Eagleton and the urban concept of Deborah Stevenson. Through this method, this study’s findings indicate that low social class groups in urban life tend to make themselves as subjects who try to adjust to the attitudes and behavior of modern culture. However, this society still has an identity as an indigenous community with inadequate capabilities. As a result, these people tend to feel their inability to face everyday life. In this study, the reversal of the situation in the text is considered indirectly to indicate eliminating lower-class subjects’ role and existence of. Thus, this study illustrates the existence of objectification in urban space life.
