Desi Puspitasari 06.05.1.1.1.00023 Who does not want to be wealth? The answer is no one. Everyone absolutely wants to be wealth. He is willing to do anything to be wealth, including sacrifice himself as the token to the devil. In this case, the writer wants to analyze the token in The Token Shop by Ahmad Tohari and Doctor Faustus by Christopher Marlowe by comparing both of those literary works. The Token Shop by Ahmad Tohari tells about a young farmer named Kartawi who have a successful wife. Her wife, Jum, own a shop and she wants to make their life better. But, behind the success lies a dark secret. Jum went to see a shaman named Pak Koyor to get a catalyst for her business and as token she gave her body to him. Doctor Faustus by Christopher Marlowe tells about Faustus, who was born of lower class parents. He wants to have power and knowledge, that s why he sells his soul to the devil. He uses Mephistopheles as a messenger, Faustus strikes a deal with Lucifer: he is to be allotted twenty-four years of life on Earth, during which time he will have Mephistopheles as his personal servant. At the end he will give his soul over to Lucifer as payment and spend the rest of time as one damned to Hell. This deal is to be sealed in Faustus' own blood. After cutting his arm, the wound is divinely healed , fly appear upon it. The Token Shop and Doctor Faustus tells about the same topic, the token. The Token Shop sacrifice Jum s body to Pak Koyor and Doctor Faustus sacrifice dr. Faustus soul to Mephistopheles. Here is the proof; Faustus: Had I as many souls as there be sta rs, I give them all for Mephistopilis. By him I ll be great Emperor of the world, And make a bridge through the moving air, To pass the ocean with a band of men; (Scene III) Both Jum and dr. Faustus have the same purpose, to get the wealth. They come from the lower class, as we know that the lower class is poor. By sacrificing themselves as the token, they can get the wealth easily and instantly. As the result, they get what they wish. Dr. Faustus gets the power and famous and so does Jum. What Jum and dr. Faustus have done can be categorized as satanism. According to wikipedia.org, Satanism comprises a number of related beliefs and social phenomena. They share the feature of symbolism, veneration or admiration of Satan (or similar figures). This means satan as the god who has to be worship by the worshippers. According to Oxford English Dictionary, the meaning of satanism is th e worship of satan. Satan means the devils. Doctor Faustus is based on an older tale.
