Short fiction as part of the literature play significant role in portraying human lifestyle, including the image of disabilities. Studying the portrayal of disabled people in literature become significant to consider the need to change the illustration of disabilities in fiction. There are four short stories selected in this study, namely Cathedral By Raymond Carver, The Blind Man by guy de Maupassant, The Blind Man by Kate Chopin and A Man Who Had No Eyes by Benjamin MacKinlay Kantor. Applying disability theory proposed by Tobin Siebers, this content analysis study found that the characters in the four stories are portrayed as weak, dependent, unproductive, and other negative prejudice. They receive this treatment due to the social misconception about disabilities.
