Flannery O'Connor


Hailed by critics as one of the more controversial of contemporary American authors, Flannery O'Connor has been described as the most extreme Christian dualist since Dostoevsky. In this first full-length study of O'Connor's work, Browning explores the implications of O'Connor's situation as a Roman Catholic in the South in the 1950s.

From this point of departure Browning offers a detailed analysis of Wise Blood, A Good Man Is Hard to Find, The Violent Bear It Away,and Everything That Rises Must Converge. Touching upon writings about intensely religious acts and dilemmas, this look at a Roman Catholic Southern writer will be of special interest to students of philosophy and religion.
