O’Conner, herself being a strong believer in Christianity, probably thought that writing this story will help make people who aren’t really living by the Christian rules to seriously consider doing so. Flannery O'Connor was deeply concerned with the values and the direction of the youth at the time....   [tags: A Good Man is Hard to Find] 569 words

Flannery OConnors "A Good Man Is Hard To Find" - In her short story "A Good Man is Hard to Find” Flannery O'Connor's seems to portray a feeling that society as she saw it was drastically changing for the worse. O'Connor's obvious displeasure with society at the time is most likely a result of her Catholic religion and her very conservative upbringing in the ‘old south.’ She seems to depict her opinion in this particular story by using the character of the grandmother to show what she saw was happening to the times. Evidence of society's "demise" is woven into the story, and presented through an interesting generation gap between the grandmother and her family....   [tags: essays research papers] 618 words

There seems to be no reason for its existence Harvey Eagleton (Dallas Morning News, May 10, 1925). F.
