Flannery O'Connor's "A Good Man Is Hard to Find"
Here's a link to your first assignment. Please read and take notes about how this story works, what makes it tick:
Flannery O'Connor's "A Good Man Is Hard to Find."
A few questions:
How does O'Connor provide momentum in her narrative?
How do the scenes work? (Break the story into movements/scenes, and figure out exactly how many scenes, and how O'Connor manipulates characters in these scenes to provide the meaning that is manifested in the finale.)
What if the family had NOT been killed? What would the story be?
