강박신경증 아들의 ‘가족 로맨스’ — 해롤드 핀터의 『가족의 목소리들』을 중심으로



This paper aims to explore Harold Pinter’s Family Voices in Sigmund Freud’s psychoanalytic aspect. The characters are only three Voices which seem to be a son’s, a mother’s and a father’s. They speak but it seems they can’t hear each other. To understand its supernatural and illogical situation, we will consider the voices are being heard in the son’s mind who are in the middle of ‘Family Romance’. ‘Family Romances’ are fantasies which children (or the neurotics) dream of when they feel disappointed with their parents because of their personal flaws or strong sense of rivalry with the parent of the opposite sex. Through this fantasy, children can be separated from their parents. Here, the son who suffers from obsessive-compulsive neurosis because of his strong oedipus complex also fantasizes ‘family romance’. Since his romance gets influenced by his sense of guilt which is distinguishing characteristic of obsessive-compulsive neurosis, he fails to be separated from his parents. When his romance comes to an end, it turns out that he still unconsciously desires attachment relationship with his mother and his father’s death. To conclude, the play is dealing with the mother-son’s dual relationship and patricide desire of the obsessive-compulsive neurosis son and his fail of the separation from his mother.
