The writing explains the analysis of psychological conflict of main character in the novel Worm in the Blood by Thomas Bloor (2005) and psychological conflict of a drugs abuser. In the novel, the character has a conflict in his psychological condition that is whether he is ready or not to face the tragedy of being cursed to be a creature which is strange to human beings. Then, the drugs abuser also has the same psychological conflict. The psychological conflict of the drugs abuser is as the same as the psychological conflict of the main character in the novel.
The objects are the data in the novel and the data about the psychological conflict of a drugs abuser. Both of the objects are analyzed by using a theory of unconsciousness proposed by Sigmund Freud (1869-1956). He stated that human has three psychological aspects. They are id, ego, and superego. By applying this theory to both objects, it can be stated that the psychological conflict of the main character in the novel reflects the psychological condition of the drugs abuser.
Furthermore, in the process of writing this research, the writer uses a library research method. The data are collected from libraries as they are a significant media in writing an analysis of a literary work.
The result of the analysis shows that the psychological condition of the main character in the novel Worm in the Bloodby Thomas Bloor (2005) reflects the psychological condition of the drugs abuser.
