Sample text

He murders Oscar not because he cares much about the prostitute—one imagines that he probably has many such girlfriends— but because he simply doesn’t want Oscar to have her. Oscar’s pursuit of Yvón becomes more heated after he is beaten within an inch of his life by the Capitán’s henchmen. The romantic surface nature of the story argues for Oscar’s heroism. And in fact, the story remains romantic because the role of the mediator and the intensity of rivalry between the Capitán and Oscar are never explored in great detail.

He laughs to himself, climbs the stairs, and is so drunk he starts pissing uncontrollably. ”17 He doesn’t distinguish among them. And in a way the reciprocity, the escalating violence between the boys and their victim Hector, makes them all indistinguishable from each other. The scapegoat is part of the crowd—in that the drunken, rollicking Hector is like the other drunks. But at the point of victimage, the scapegoat has to be different too. Although they are all behaving in a disorderly way, Hector has called more attention to himself through his uncontrollable pissing on his way up the stairs, and his deranged laughter.

The growing awareness itself is important. Hector is starting to understand the mimetic nature of his own desire. He goes back to the frat house not just because he lacks any other friend, but because what he is learning is important, that is, he has no friend, now he really knows. And of course he is becoming addicted to the violence associated with this learning experience. Oates brilliantly conveys through indirect free discourse the way Hector, also known as Scoot Campos, oscillates between insecurity— a sense of himself as inferior to his models—and a euphoric sense of himself as transforming into something other under the tutelage of his models.
