‘Atheis’ oleh Abdul Qowi Bastian

Apa artinya sesal, kalau harapan telah tak ada lagi untuk memperbaiki segala kesalahan? Untuk menebus segala dosa?

Akan tetapi hilangkah pula sesal, karena harapan untuk menebus dosa itu telah hilang? Ah, bila demikian halnya, barangkali takkan seberat itu segala dosa menekan jiwa Kartini. Tapi, tidakkah malah sebaliknya? Bahwa semakin hilang harapan, semakin berat pula sesal menekan?

“Atheis: Bagian 1 is a roman written by Achdiat K. Mihardja in early twentieth century. It tells a traditional lifestyle transition to a modern one. Changes in the protagonist’s life reveals doubts in his faith and questions the old beliefs.

I first read it in high school and was hooked instantly, perhaps because I can relate to some parts of the story. One of my favorite Indo’s lits”
