                       1.  Brief Description

                                  How does reading a story enable us to comprehend it especially when the

                           story is a complex literary one? What are the key things that the text provides (on
                           the one hand) and that we readers do during the reading process (on the other hand),

                           so  that  we  feel  we  have  grasped  the  narrative,  appreciate  its  effects  and
                           complexities, and can talk about it with some confidence?

                                  You have certainly heard stories or fairy tales that might be told by your
                           grandmother or grandfather about the origins of events in a place or are often said

                           to be folk legends, of course it's fun, isn't it? Of course, you have also been asked

                           about "Malin Kundang", "Lake Toba", "Cinderela" and many other stories. How
                           do these stories in your opinion, interesting?

                           Associated with the folklore. Look at the following sentence excerpts:

                           A : "Have you ever heard a story about The Green Princess?"
                           B : “Oh, yeah, I once heard the story from a tour guide when I visited the Maimoon

                           Palace in Medan, North Sumatra. It was  such a wonderful story that made my

                           imagination go back through time. The guide was very good at telling the story.”
