Read story my oedipus complex. by vantuandinh with 6,773 reads. The novel My Oedipus Complex written by the famous Irish short storywriter Frank O’Conner, in my opinion, is more a spiritual exploration of the problems of youth and growing-up than just a simple story told by a little kid. The dramatic experience of Larry (both the narrator and the protagonist of the novel) seems to be the representation of part of our childhood stories.

This was a new development, which threatened to be even more serious than "talking to Daddy

Irish writer Frank O’Connor explains, far better than Freud might have done. This was a new development, which threatened to be even more serious than "talking to Daddy. Life without my early-morning conferences was unthinkable.

I first encountered Frank O Connor's writing as a child in primary school, and was instantly transported back in time on reading one of my personal favourites-first confession.I howled with laughter yet again as I pictured the poor child in his ill-fitting suit, in abject mortification of his dreaded grandmother and the bould sister Nora...
Not to mention the absolute cheek of the father returning home to interrupt the cosy life of the young child in the story from which this wonderful book takes it's title...

And if you are Irish, it will grab you in that same spot that makes you tap your feet to traditional music no matter where you are in the world....And transport you home.
An excellent read.

This is an interesting collection of Short Stories from O'Connor, and is rather humorous and entertaining for a while, till of course it becomes a tad repetitive and the reader interest flags a bit. Humor comes in the form of mostly asinine stuff, and the reader can often find nuggets of his or her own childhood in the fanciful narratives his tales tell. Good to kill some time on a lazy day, when you don't quite feel like digging into some Proust ;)

I just want to make the point that it does contain O'Connor's great and justly famous story "My First Confession". The whole book is a complete and utter joy, a kaleidoscope of characters, and tour-de-force of the storyteller's art. Inasmuch as anybody doesn't get it, it's a negative reflection on their literary percipience.

If indeed Mr O'Connor had written the title story (as the product description above states) about his experience with his mother during his father's absence in World War 2, we would be dealing with a spectacular oedipal complex. Since it was in fact a description of the time when his ftaher was away fighting in the Great War (WW1), we are only dealing with a spectacular story, written with elegance and restrained hilarity.
