A Good Man is a Trickster to Find
Inquiry@Queen's Undergraduate Research Conference Proceedings
In my presentation, I will demonstrate the contrast between the pioneer of the Southern Grotesque, Flannery O'Connor, and her famous story "A Good Man is Hard to Find" with Taylor's use of the gothic in his YA novel. O'Connor adapted her version of the gothic from her predecessors such as Shelley and Poe. But she veers away from the creation of a fantastical monster tradition of the Romantics to drive the focus of the "monstrous" to the very human but harmful behaviors of her characters.doi:10.24908/iqurcp.14667 fatcat:mga77kdqovcx5pvmboreszrw3m
