Tietoja tekijästä

Flannery O'Connor was born in Savannah, Georgia. She had a quiet, bookish life as a child before attending Georgia State College for Women and going on tot he Writers Workshop at the State University of Iowa, where she earned a Master of Fine Arts degree. Her 1949 dissertation consisted of six näytä lisää short stories, one of which she developed into her first novel, Wise Blood (1952). Wise Blood is the story of a fanatical, wandering preacher who sets out to found a "church of truth without Jesus Christ crucified." The book introduces some of the religious themes that run throughout O'Connor's later work. Her second novel, The Violent Bear It Away (1960), is the story of murder involving a Tennessee backwoods preacher and a small boy. Once again, O'Connor explores unusual manifestation of religion and human eccentricities. Although O'Connor produced only a small body of work during her relatively brief lifetime, she has received much critical attention. O'Connor suffered from lupus, an inherited disease, which crippled her and cut short her life, and so her creative work was largely compressed within a decade of the 1950's. Her father also dies of Lupus when she was 15 years old. O'Connor is frequently praised as being the most creative and distinctive writer of this period. The two most notable aspects of her fiction are its religious themes and its commentary on the oppressive traditions of the mid-twentieth-century Deep South. (Bowker Author Biography) näytä vähemmän

I get heartburn whenever someone tries to finish a known author’s unfinished worked. No matter how they try they don’t have quite the same voice. However, Wilson did a decent job of piecing it together, though I don’t think it’s the path O’Connor would have followed. Still it’s interesting to see the final work of such a tortured and creative soul. How the oppressive south produced such a disturbing and insightful writer as Flannery O’Connor will forever be the unanswered mystery.

O'Connor's genius is evident in the stunning writing in this heavily allegorical novel of small-town Southern misfits in search of faith. The characters are not sympathetic or likeable but their lives engender empathy on the part of the reader and keep us reading. The book initiated one of the better book club discussions we've had, wrestling with meaning and intentions of author and characters and events. I'll be reading more O'Connor.

If no other thing, read "The King of the Birds," her famous account of raising peacocks at her home in Milledgeville, Georgia. For the writing, for the humor, for the brilliancy.

Important literary analysis from one of the twentieth century's greatest American short story authors. These essays are just as important as her fiction because, in my opinion, they contribute to our overall understanding of literature.
