From the paper:
"Flannery O?Connor?s use of design in ?Good Country People? is exceptional. She tells parts of the story out of chronological order to compare certain parts of the story and to put the reader inside the minds of the different characters. O?Connor relays information to the reader through foreshadowing, flashbacks, juxtapositions, and repetitions. These tools of design enable O?Connor to write in third person while using the omniscient narrator to focus on different character?s consciousness throughout the story. Because the reader knows what some characters are thinking, he/she is able to see the irony involved in the story."
