The complete stories by Flannery O'Connor( Book )

124 editions published between 1971 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 4,286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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

"In this varied collection of commemorative essays, fiction, and poetry, some of today's most important writers pay tribute to the genius of Flannery O'Connor. The seventy-fifth anniversary of O'Connor's birth is the occasion for tributes from both those who called O'Connor a friend and those who have learned from her as students through the timelessness of her written word.

The true country; themes in the fiction of Flannery O'Connor by Carter W Martin( Book )

2 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Many critics of Flannery O'Connor's work have argued that the pervasiveness of shock and black irony in her narrative form is merely the exploitation of the grotesque. In this incisive analysis, Carter Martin explores another viewpoint: that O'Connor uses these devices to express Catholic orthodoxy, that her satire is a vehicle for compassion, and that her irony expresses the sharp antithesis between acceptance and rejection of grace."--From publisher description
The eternal crossroads : the art of Flannery O'Connor by Leon V Driskell( Book )

1 edition published in 1971 in Undetermined and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Flannery O'Connor was a writer of extraordinary power and virtuosity. Her strong supple prose blends humor, pathos, satire, and grotesquerie which leads the reader to the evil at the center of the self's labyrinth. There, she confronts that evil with originality and power, pulling the reader into consideration of the terrifying dependencies of love in the recesses of the heart. This study focuses on Flannery O'Connor's sense of the coincidence of the eternal and cosmic with worldly time and place -- ""the eternal crossroads""--And how that sense controls and infuses her fiction.
