"The publication of this extraordinary volume firmly established Flannery O'Connor's monumental contribution to American fiction. There are thirty-one stories here in all, including twelve that do not appear in the only two story collections O'Connor put together in her short lifetime--'Everything That Rises Must Converge' and 'A Good Man Is Hard to Find'. O'Connor published her first story, 'The Geranium, ' in 1946, while she was working on her master's degree at the University of Iowa. Arranged chronologically, this collection shows that her last story, 'Judgement Day'--sent to her publisher shortly before her death--is a brilliantly rewritten and transfigured version of 'The Geranium.' Taken together, these stories reveal a lively, penetrating talent that has given us some of the most powerful and disturbing fiction of the twentieth century. Also included is an introduction by O'Connor's longtime editor and friend, Robert Giroux."--Page 4 of cover

Flannery O'Connor is widely regarded as one of the great American writers of the twentieth century. Only in 1979, however, with the publication of her collected letters could the public fully see the depth of her personal faith and her wisdom as a spiritual guide. Drawing from all her works this anthology highlights O'Connor's distinctive voice as a spiritual writer, covering such topics as Christian Realism, the Church, the relation between faith and art, sin and grace, and the role of suffering in the life of a Christian. This volume also includes the complete text of O'Connor's short story, Revelation

The violent bear it away by Flannery O'Connor( )

7 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in 1960, The Violent Bear It Away is now a landmark in American literature. It is a dark and absorbing example of the gothic sensibility and bracing satirical voice that are united in Flannery O'Connor's work. In it, orphaned Francis Marion Tarwater and his cousin, Rayber, defy the prophecy of their dead uncle - that Tarwater will become a prophet and will baptize Rayber's young son, Bishop. A series of struggles ensue, as Tarwater fights an internal battle against his innate faith and the voices calling nim to be a prophet, while Rayber tries to draw Tarwater into a more 'reasonable' modern world. Both wrestle with the legacy of their dead relatives and lay claim to Bishop's soul"--Container
