This research is to analyze a short story of Budi Darmas short story anthology The People of Bloomington (1980). Charles Lebourne was chosen because storythemes1 in the text can be clearly analyzed by a structural perspective. A Structural analysis on a literary work thoroughly explains and exposes the linkages of elements and aspects of the work to form a whole meaning. By analyzing six Episodes in the story, this structural approach produces two structures. Structure I as the Structure of Encounter between the characters shows the process of how the two finally live together before separated for a long time. While Structure II as the Structure of Inner-Conflict reflects the innerconflict of man in opposing pain, misery, the weakness, and the dark sides as a human being by comparing how the characters treat each other showed in the episodes. Finally, Charles Lebourne is seen as a model of an anxious man pursuing his identity and interacting with others.
