Quote, speaker, and page number Quick paraphrase Analysis: Questions and commentary relating quote back to your Irish topic Christy: …Im thinking this night wasnt I a foolish fellow not to kill my father in the years gone by. (63) Paraphrase: Tonight Im thinking that I was foolish not to have killed my father earlier (because it has won him the affection of two women). Analysis: Christy appears to be an Oedipal figure in this play as he has killed his father. However, Synge twists his role, making it comic rather than tragic, since Christy is proud here of killing of his father. And why shouldnt he be? Instead of earning him shame, his act has won him the attention and desire of two women.
