This paper is using deconstruction approach by Jacques Derrida which conceptualize that it is necessary blurring of binary opposition existing in the text and dismantling the established values and logic so there is no single meaning in the text. In addition, a term of decentering whichcan be interpreted as structure without center and hierarchy or known as the concept of central negation.
