As one of the prominent writers of the Southern Gothic genre in the mid-20th Century, Flannery O'Connor used short fiction to explore grotesque characters, Southern settings, questions of morality, and Roman Catholic themes. This volume examines and closely analyzes O'Connor's best and least-known works, such as A Good Man is Hard to Find, Good Country People, and Temple of the Holy Ghost. Each essay is 2,500 to 5,000 words in length, and all essays conclude with a list of ""Works Cited,"" along with endnotes. Finally, the volume's appendixes offer a section of useful reference resources: A chronology of the author's life; A complete list of the author's works and their original dates of publication; A general bibliography; A detailed paragraph on the volume's editor; Notes on the individual chapter authors; A subject index.
