A Good Mans Hard to Find

...I think that Flannery O’Connor’s short story “A Good Man is Hard to Find” is written partially in order to “convert” people who have not yet fully accepted the Christian faith. O’Conner, herself being a strong believer in Christianity, probably thought that writing this story will help make people who aren’t really living by the Christian rules to seriously consider doing so. Flannery O'Connor was deeply concerned with the values and the direction of the youth at the time. She believed that Christ was no longer enough of a priority to the people of her generation. "A Good Man is Hard to Find" is representative of Flannery O'Connor's concern for the priorities and values of the 1940s. An example of this, in "A Good Man is Hard to Find," involves the grandmother's strong, southern heritage. She dresses with the intention that anyone who finds her dead on the road will know she was a lady, and she is always telling stories of southern gentlemen courting her. Then, the Misfit, whom she "knows" is of quality, southern blood, shoots her and her family, despite her belief in southern hospitality. Grandma is a woman who believes in God, but it seems that her belief isn’t really strong up until her confrontation with the Misfit. From what I understand, most of her works follow a similar pattern. The main character(s) are in some kind of trouble and at the end they see “the light” of God’s ways and have their redemption. Christians have often criticized her works......

A Good Man Is Hard to Find

...“A Good Man is Hard to Find” How old does one need to be to die and how old is too old to profess one’s faith and receive salvation? What does it take to have salvation and eternal life and how does one show that in a work of literature? In the process of all of the chronological references and religious symbolism, Flannery O’Connor in “A Good Man is Hard to Find” addresses this and draws a parallel to the modern moral dilemma of what it takes to be saved. Written in 1953 and based upon her Roman Catholicism roots, O’Connor conveys how each family member gracefully accepts the previous generation’s quirkiness and cynicism to maintain family unit. Although the younger generations do not respect older ones as much as their parents, her stories have characters that convey her message of religious distrust through each character’s deceptive actions and secular thoughts. Similarly, most of O’Connor’s stories make reference to the good and bad by such subtleness as creatively naming the kids after an outlaw and a founder of a major religion. By such obscurity, she wants to draw a parallel between the true believer and the hypocrites that appear to be religious in actions (May). Like a mirror’s reflection, O’Connor’s story contains several undertones of grace in how the characters are developed in the story. From the grandmother to the Misfit, there is a “forewarning of mortal death in the story as the family travels on their last trip before meeting the Misfit that carries...

A Good Man Is Hard to Find

...Monika Allen Catharine Vickers Composition and introduction to Lit- 9 February 2016 Who is Deceiving Who? In the story “A Good Man Is Hard to Find,” O’Conner is a very detailed writer that loves dialogue. She made the grandmother the main character that dressed well for age and is a crucial character in the story. She is the one who wanted to go to the plantation; she wanted to bring her little kitty cat that jumps out of the suitcase, which causes the accident on the dirt road. How the family encounters the criminal "Misfit" and his cohorts, someone could argue that the grandmother is the real "misfit". How is the grandmother herself a misfit in the story? Should the grandmother be accounted for being a “misfit?” The Grandmother, Baily, his wife, and three kids wanted to go on a trip. Everyone but the grandmother wanted to go to Florida. They end up going to Tennessee and end up running into three bad people the leader is named the “Misfit”. He and his crew killed the entire family just because the grandmother knew him from the paper that she was reading that very morning. Some may say it was the grandmothers fault why the all got killed because if she didn’t want go to Tennessee the little family wouldn’t have ran into the misfit. If the grandmother didn’t want to go down the dirt road that she thought would lead them to and old house that was never there, and if she didn’t bring the cat that popped out and scared Bailey (the driver) the car would not......

Love Is Hard to Find in La

...Love is Hard to Find in L.A. After reading Love in LA and A Food Man is Hard to Find, it becomes clear at first that the stories are very different, though, with a deeper look you can start to see a few subtle similarities. Love in LA tells the story of a young man named Jake, who ironically only seems to love himself. Jake has a very brief encounter with a woman named Marina after the two have a fender-bender while navigating through LA traffic. A Good Man is Hard to Find tells the story of a family that is going on vacation which goes horribly awry after what seems to be a major accident, and the ironic run-in with the worst man possible known as “The Misfit”. Characters and Their Morals In “Love in LA”, every step of the way it seems that Jake’s decisions were all selfish and inconsiderate. From giving fake information after the accident to claiming to have “been in a few movies” in hopes of getting a phone number, it is apparent that Jake’s outlook on life is heavily revolved around his own well-being without the consideration of others. We are given very little information about Marina’s point of view on things. She is portrayed as innocent and even considerate when she talks about her dad being disappointed if she didn’t report the accident. Her final words make her seem almost gullible for falling for Jake’s charm when she says “call me” before departing. In “A good Man is Hard to Find” the main character is the grandmother of the family. In the first page of the......

A Good Man Is Hard to Find

...A Good Man Is Hard to Find The meaning of the word foreshadow is to indicate or show beforehand. The author uses foreshadowing to hint to the reader on what is to come. This can also be subtle, and sometimes overlooked. A careful reader might be able to anticipate the ending by paying attention to the context clues, dialogue among characters, and the major aspects of the plot. In the beginning of the story, the author states that grandmother does not want to go to Florida. In addition, in the opening of the story, the grandmother is reading a newspaper article about an escaped prisoner named The Misfit that is headed to Florida. The grandmother then continues to state that she would never take her children into the direction of an escaped criminal. Her worries and complaints were taken lightly as the family packed into their vehicle and headed to Florida. While stopped in Georgia, the family stops at a restaurant to eat and engage in conversation with the owner. While on the topic of The Misfit, the owner’s wife says: “I wouldn’t be surprised if he didn’t attact this place right here” (205). After leaving the restaurant, things start to take a turn for the worse. The family gets into a car accident on a secluded road on the way to an old plantation. Moments later, a car emerged slowly as if the occupants were watching them. When the three occupants get out of the car, “the grandmother had the feeling that the bespectacled man was someone that she knew “(207).......

...A Good Man Is Hard To Find Kimberly Samuel A Good Man is Hard to Find by Flannery O’Connor In Flannery O’ Connor’s A Good Man is Hard to Find, the main character is the grandmother’s character is displayed by her reactions and conversations with various characters throughout the story. Through her conversation with Bailey, her son, John Wesley and June Star, her grandchildren, and the Misfit killer. These conversations state the fact that she is from a traditional background and her attitude alternates to fit the surroundings that she is in. The grandmother loses her capacity to comprehend what state of mind that she wants to be in. Throughout the entire story the author utilizes a strong sense of foreshadowing for the people and for the events that occur. O’Connor uses this technique three times in the story, describing the grandmother’s dress, the family’s death, and the grandmother’s conversation with the Misfit Killer. The story starts out with the grandmother being uncomfortable about the family’s upcoming trip to Florida from Georgia. She tries to force Bailey to rethink the entire trip by telling him about what she has read in the newspaper. “Here this fellow that calls himself the Misfit is aloose from the Federal Pen…and read what it says he did with these people…I wouldn’t take my children in any direction with a criminal like that aloose in it” (O’Connor, 2008). Her pleading for the cancellation did not go well and the family prepared to leave the next day....

Is a Good Man That Hard to Find?

...Is A Good Man That Hard To Find? I feel that O'Connor's story fits well with her statement about the South being "Christ-haunted." In fact, I feel that the Misfit, whom at first appeared to me to be a ruthless, sadistic murderer, actually ended up being even more of a 'good person' than any of the members of Bailey's family. I will analyze certain statements made in the story to make my point feasible. “The trees were full of silver-white sunlight and the meanest of them sparkled.” First off, it is pretty obvious to me that the "silver-white sunlight" is supposed to be imagery the reader associates with Heaven. Beyond that, I feel there are two possible meanings to it as a whole, depending on how you interpret the meaning of the word "meanest": either they are being portrayed as cruel, or they are being portrayed as average. In the first case, the trees could almost be approximated with the Misfit in the role of Jesus. In the second case, the trees could be representative of Bailey's family. “They passed a large cotton field with five or six graves fenced in the middle of it, like a small island.” It just so happens that the Bailey family has six members: Bailey, his wife, his mother, and his three children. I feel this is an allusion to the fact that they're going to die later on. The bit about the island may also be significant. In the end, they seemed to be stranded, trapped, and surrounded on all sides by the Misfit and his men, just like an island is surrounded by......

Validity of Reward for Return

...MEMORANDUM From: To: Reader Date: February 1, 2012 Re: Validity of reward for return of lost object Relevant Facts Alan finds a lost object belonging to Bart. Alan intends on returning the object to the rightful owner. Bart, after realizing that he lost the object and after Alan finding it, offers a reward for the return of the object. The events have happened in Boring, Oregon. Issue Presented The issue at hand is whether a reward for the return of the object is binding when it’s made after the object has already been found by another person. Applicable Law In Oregon Supreme Court ruling MacFarlane v. Bloch, 59 Ore. 1 (Or. 1911), the court has sided with the finder of a lost pocketbook and demanded that the rightful owner pays a reward to the finder, after the pocketbook has been returned. The owner claimed that the pocketbook was found before the rewards has been announced, and that the finder delayed returning to pocketbook. “To entitle plaintiff to a reward for finding a lost pocketbook, it was immaterial that she found the book before the offer was made, the reward not being for the finding but for the return of the book.” MacFarlane, 2. The court decided that it was irrelevant when the offer for reward was made, as the reward is for returning the item to the rightful owner and not for merely finding it. The Oregon Supreme Court has also ruled in Watts v. Ward, 1 Ore. 86, 88 (Or.......

You must realize what the problem is so that you have an idea on what you are going to be examining. (2) Confronting it intensely - Next you must address the problem without time-wasting and be open to accepting all ideas. This step requires serious thinking and is a very important part of the process, as it takes a person through the whys and wherefores of the problem, and what has worked and not worked in the past to decrease or change the problem or problems.

Mistaken Adverse Possession by a Neighbor

...pay Alan a reward for finding Bart’s lost property before Bart offered the reward? Rule In MacFarlane v. Bloch, 59 Ore. 1, 115 P. 1056, 1911 Ore. LEXIS 98 (Or. 1911), the plaintiff found a pocketbook with promissory notes made out to the defendant owner. At first, the plaintiff did nothing to locate the owner but search the ‘Lost and Found’ section of the paper. The defendant then offered a reward of $100 for the pocketbook to which the plaintiff came forward and the defendant’s agent refused to pay. The court awarded the plaintiff the reward money with Mr Chief Justice Eakin stating, “the finding of the book was not the purpose of the offer,” it was the return of the book and the plaintiff complied. ORS § 98.005 states if a person finds goods or money valued at $250 or more, he or she must give notice in writing to the clerk of the county within 10 days and within 20 days post notice in the general newspaper of the area in which the goods or money was found and if no such owner comes forward in 3 months, the finder is then deemed the owner. Analysis If Alan found Bart’s object, and in good faith, held on to it until he could locate the rightful owner then Bart would have to pay Alan the reward. Bart would breach the contract he has with the finder, in this case Alan, that Bart instigated when he offered the reward. Alan can insist on Bart paying him the reward because Bart offered it in an effort to get his object back. In MacFarlane v Bloch, the court did not......

A Good Man Is Hard to Find by Flannery O'Conner

...McCarthy 1 Suzette McCarthy Professor Strong English 102 28 September 2011 A Good Man Is Hard to Find “A Good Man Is Hard to Find” was written by Flannery O’Conner, and her deep religious beliefs are shown in this short story. The beginning of the story starts with a quote by St. Cyril of Jerusalem who was one of the first theologians of the early church. “The dragon is by the side of the road, watching those who pass. Beware lest he devour you. We go to the father of souls, but it is necessary to pass by the dragon.” This quote references how the devil sits by the side of the road distracting people from God in their walk through life. O’Conner’s story revolves around one family that had become self-absorbed. Their grandma tried to warn them of their fate and feebly tried to get them to change their focus in life. Unfortunately, her clouded judgment led them to the dragon by the side of the road known as “The Misfit,” who was in fact a devil laying in wait and judging which individuals may pass. The story does not go into detail of the horrible things the Misfit had done in the past, but only the details of how he killed the family after their car accident. Interesting enough, he mirrors St. Cyril’s dragon and devours this family. His whole approach to the accident shows the lack of care for others. He did not rush to help, ask if anyone was injured, or offer to help – he appeared to be summing up their actions toward one another and their attitude toward......

Essay on a Good Man Is Hard to Find by Flannery O'Connor

...Good or Bad Hypocrisy is to claim to have certain moral behaviors, but the person speaking of the behaviors does not enforce them on himself. In today’s society, many arrogant individuals feel that making themselves seem better than the rest of the crowd causes people to look up to them. In reality, the crowd actually believes that they are foolish. In the story, “A Good Man is Hard to Find” by Flannery O’Connor, the author addresses the consequences of poor judgment and how this leads to the death of the main character. The grandmother attempts to talk her son and his wife into going to Tennessee instead of Florida because a man called the misfit has escaped prison. After they stop at the tower and speak with the owner, Red Sam, the grandmother remembers an old plantation that she would like to see again, and she even exaggerates about the house so her son will stop by. After having an accident on the dirt road leading to the plantation, the grandmother realizes the house is actually in Tennessee. The spoiled old lady waves down a car for help, and the people in the vehicle turn out to be the misfit and his henchmen. She makes a mistake by announcing that she knows who they are. As a result, the misfit and his crew kill her and the rest of the family, leaving her last to die. Through the author’s use of tone, symbolism, and characterization, O’Connor proves that labeling someone as “good” is only true if he has morals and grace, not selfishness and blindness. The......
