A Good Man is Hard to Find: A Moment of Change
Category : Articles
A review of Flannery O’ Connor’s “A Good Man is Hard to Find”.
This paper is a critical analysis of “A Good Man is Hard to Find” by Flannery O?Connor. The author examines the characters and their experiences and the theme of change.
“In Flannery O’Connor’s stories the main character, often through some contact with violence, goes through a transformation. Some of these changes occur when the character is confronted by the fact that the world in which they live and their position in it are not as they perceive. In “Everything That Rise Must Converge” this realization shatters the main characters mind. However, in “A Good Man is Hard to Find” the main character, the grandmother, changes from a self-centered, hypocrite into a person who things of others and is aware of her responsibility. O’Connor uses an encounter with a criminal called Misfit to change her main character.”
