The results are exploited by offering a detailed list of Tiger's developing relationship with darkness itself. The researcher examines and analyses the book to compile a list of Tiger's speeches as described therein. The six stages of grieving can be seen to correlate with each item on the list. As a result, the main characters in this book go through the stages of grieving in their own unique and distinctive way, which helps them reach the end of their journey—finding meaning. It shows that the main character in the novel experiences all six stages of grief, namely denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance, and finding meaning. Initially, Tiger did not accept her mother's death. However, at the end of the story, she decides to move on and learn to make friends with her darkness.</p> 2023-11-07T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 JURNAL BASIS THE ANALYSIS OF CONTENT TEXTS IN THE TEXTBOOK: COMMUNICATIVE ENGLISH IN CONTEXT PUBLISHED BY GRAFINDO 2023-10-31T06:55:02+00:00 Woro Endah Sitoresmi Herlini Herlini Nur Asma <p><em>Since the analysis of textbook is highly important and beneficial for teaching and learning process and also as a reflective syllabus and curriculum, the present study aims to overview the content texts in the English textbook: Communicative English in Context for ninth graders published by Grafindo.
