Abstract

This paper examines the archetypes of the men and women in Malay Annals /Sejarah Melayu. It combines Jung's archetypal theory with Derrida's Deconstruction to unveil the un-highlighted archetypes concealed beneath the hyperbolical portrayal of men and the dimmed images of women by looking beneath what Jung termed as the "props", "crutches", and the "cover from the rear" to study what Derrida termed as the "double writing" that carries multiple meanings. It closely examines the characters' journeys closely in relation to their nafs (passions) and aql (reasonslintelligence) and look at the 'holes' in the 'whole' selves in the stories to highlight the hidden or concealed archetypes to uncover the men's follies behind their glories and the women's strengths beneath their dimmed portrayal. iii
