Description:

The author reviews Flannery O'Connor's short story "A Good Man is Hard to Find". She states that O'Connor's writing reflects her Southern and Catholic traditions. Although she cannot be read as part of the feminist literary tradition, O'Connor is important to contemporary American fiction.

From the Paper:

"The words of the grandmother might seem sentimental, were she not speaking to a man who is a homicidal killer, about to blow her away to "kingdom come." "A Good Man is Hard to Find" depicts a rather repulsive young family, including June Star who "wouldn't live in a broken-down place" for a "million bucks" and the rather irritating grandmother. (7) But because the grandmother is able to see some brief snatch of humanity in the "Misfit" who eventually kills her, O'Connor bestows her with a kind of grace in terms of the narrative's judgment."
