The Religious Core of A Good Man Is Hard to Find                                                 |
|Research Purpose                                                                                                                               |
|This paper aims to study one of Mary Flannery O'Connor’s finest works -- A Good Man Is Hard to Find. A Good Man Is Hard to Find represents all|
|the characteristics for which Flannery O'Connor is best known: a contrast of violent action with humorously carefully drawn characters and a   |
|philosophy that exhibit her devout Roman Catholic faith. The story is written in 1953 at the time of southern literary renaissance. Prior to   |

|This paper mainly discusses about the theme of A Good Man Is Hard to Find. Because most studies concludes that the theme of study can be about|
|a family as a whole that lacks love for the grandmother, or about a family that goes on a trip that wound up having an accident, which puts   |
|them at the wrong place at the wrong time. However, this conclusion is doubted by the writer who considers the theme should be divine grace.   |
|So this paper will focus on the writing purpose and confirm the writer’s point of view.                                                       |
|                                                                                                                                               |...
