The history of literature is one of the most important factors in the indicators of the success of learning literature in class. Students in the class are generally in Special Indonesian lessons in the Indonesian literature section. This obstacle was also experienced by Indonesian language instructors who faced literary material. One common obstacle between students and instructors is the specter of boring literary works and alternative literary learning that are less varied. This specter was added to the beginning of not knowing students to Indonesian literary figures. If it is not done well, it will have an impact on the decline in student learning motivation and the reluctance of teachers to teach Indonesian literature. For this reason, mastery of alternative literary learning media must be pursued with effective strategies. The strategy is to package information about an interesting medium and can be easily found. This can be a choice of remembrance of material presentation in an Indonesian literary encyclopedia complete with solid information and a colorful display. Choose literary figures in the period of appearance of writers and those who are members of his generation. Through this encyclopedia students easily get information from Indonesian writers from various eventual summits. If the condition is achieved, literary lessons, especially in the historical aspect, will no longer be considered as something serious because every writer has his own history.
