My Oedipus complex
Frank O’Conner
Analysis The Character Larry In The Short Story “My Oedipus Complex” By Frank O’Connor My Oedipus Complex is a short story of Frank O’Connor about a little boy – the main character Larry – who told about his relationship and his complicated feelings around the relationship in family. One important technique that made the readers have a closer look to this character was the technique of narration. In the story, the narrator was the main character, a five year- old boy; therefore; every event was told under the boy’s eyes. Through that, the character of Larry was depicted clearly. He was not a boy didn’t know anything but he also didn’t know all, he loved the person take care him and he fight against the person take place him in his mother’s love and attention. In order to have close look to this character, first of all, we should discuss about “the most peaceful period” in his life which was the time before the coming back of his father from the First World War. With this child, he didn’t know about the awful of war. He also didn’t know the important of father in family, lack of father in the early life is the unlucky with any child, but he didn’t know about that. The reason is that he was too young, the war took his father up to the age of 5 year olds and in the wartime, every man must go to war so he couldn’t see the role of father in other families. The memories of him about his father was few, he found that his father liked Santa Clause. This comparison can make readers surprising; however, it’ was rather true because father “came and went mysteriously”. The readers may smile in the first moment reading it but after that, they would be sympathy with the boy’s situation.
Living in a house only have him and his mother, he found himself have responsibilities with the daily routine. Without father in home, Larry became an accompany friend of his mother to everywhere she went. “What mother and I should do during the day”
