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 renaissance, Southern writers tend to focus on historical romances about the "Lost Cause" of the Confederate States of America. This | |writing glorifies the heroism of the Confederate army and civilian population during the Civil War and the supposedly "idyllic culture" that | |existed in the South before the war. The Southern Renaissance changed this by addressing three major themes in their works. | | | |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. | |
