Martin's, 2011. 662-676. Print. O’Connor, Flannery. "A Good Man Is Hard to Find.” The Story and Its Writer.
Through her creative details and intentional use of rhetoric, O’Connor strengthens the idea that the true definition of a ‘good man’ is skewed and difficult to pinpoint. Defining a ‘good man’ varies because it is individualized from reader to reader and a generic definition cannot be composed. This gothic piece of literature is realistic, and through its theme, the reader is exposed to the flaws of society as a whole. Works Cited O'Connor, Flannery. "A Good Man Is Hard To Find."
