This paper introduces, discusses, and analyzes Frank O'Connor's story, "The Drunkard". More specifically, the paper relates the plot of the story, the author's use of narrative voice, the crucial phase of the story, and how, rather than a sad tale of a father's alcoholism, the story becomes a funny and ultimately uplifting tale of how the young boy in the story fulfilled his mother's implied plea to guard his father and to act as a brake upon the man's weakness. The paper concludes that the what seems to be a story of tragedy early on becomes a comic and hopeful tale about a young son making good on a promise to his mother.
