What is it that shocks newcomers to the works of Flannery O'Connor and what makes them return? The perfection of her language and her images allures her readers, the precision of her settings and her characters keeps them spellbound because the surface reality of her stories -- enjoyable in itself -- touches deeper layers of human experience. For O'Connor the art work was an embodiment of spiritual reality as much as Jesus was the Word made flesh. In his study the author presents readings of O'Connor stories, which prove that she is a master of showing mystery through manners, depth through precision.
