The paper compares the relationships of Julian and his mother in "Everything that Rises Must Converge", and of Asbury and his mother (and sister) in "The Enduring Chill". The paper identifies the many differences between both Julian and Asbury and their relationships with their mothers.
From the Paper:"Flannery O'Connor lived most of her live in Georgia, and was still only 39 when she died from Lupus (Inherited from her father, who also died young from the disease), and yet during her short life, this "Plain-faced Southern Belle" (Abrams, 2002) managed to produce a great body of work, including the book from which the two stories studied here will be taken; Everything That Rises Must Converge. Throughout her life, (Mary) Flannery O'Connor remained a strict Catholic, and images of redemption and retribution, guilt and troubled innocence, abound in her work. What is clearest in these two stories, however, is the stories of the relationships; that of Julian and his mother in "Everything that Rises Must Converge", and of Asbury and his mother (and sister) in "The Enduring Chill"."
