This research is about the analysis of the adaptation works Alice through the lens of adaptation theory by Linda Hutcheon. The adaptation works will bring the ideology that leads us to the motives behind the adaptation works. The ideology will be found by using mythology by Roland Barthes thus we will know the motives that are shown in Linda Hutcheon “Theory of Adaptation.” This research uses qualitative research which the data are taken from novel, visual image, conversation as the primary data. Thus the data will be the sign that will be analyzed. Another data that are used in this research come from journals, articles, book and thesis which related to the topic and it becomes the secondary data. The objects of this analysis are taken from the quotation of the novel and visual image from the film using the comparative method. The goal of this research are two. The first one is to find the transformation through the adaptation works. The second one is to find the motives beyond the adaptations work. The first goal is found by comparing the data that are taken from the novel as the original work with the data that are taken from the visual image and the dialog between the characters in the film. The theory that is used in this research is adaptation theory by Linda Hutcheon. Beginning that I do for this research is collecting data from each works. After collecting the data I have to compare those data used comparative method. Then after finding the differences of the transformation of each data, mythology by Roland Barthes is used as the bridge to find out what actually lies between each media (novel and film). Mythology is important because they will lead us to the motives beyond the adaptation works from the novel as the original work into the film as the adaptation work. Ideology that have been found in the adaptation works are the way out to find the motives beyond the adaptation work. The result of this research is to find the motives beyond the adaptation works. The ideology that has been found in the novel is modernism which the part of it is feminism and rationality. Meanwhile in the film the ideology that are provided are about the future technology, post feminism and also the American power. Based on the ideology that is found in the novel and film adaptation, the motives that are provided by the adapter are the cultural capital and also economic lures. The adapter uses that motives to get the benefit especially in financial. By using the ideology that is related to the present time, the film maker will get the benefit.
