Project #59981 - Flannery O’Connor - A good man is hard to find

Read about author Flannery O’Connor’s background starting on page 350. Then read A Good Man is Hard to Find on pages 356 to 366. Then do questions 1-3, 5-7 and 9. You'll find a video of O'Connor reading the story in a southern dialect in Week 6 as well. 
 
1. How does o'connor portray the family? What is comic about them? What qualites about them are we meant to take seriously?  Are you shocked by what happens to them?  Does your attitude toward them remain constant during the course of the story?
2. How do the grandmother's concerns about the trip to Florida foreshadow events in the story?
3.  Describe the grandmother.  How does O'Connor make her the central character?
5.  Characterize The Misfit. What makes him so? Can he be written off as simply insane? How does the grandmother respond to him?
6.  Why does The Misfit say that "Jesus thown everything off balance"?  What does religion have to do with the brutal action of this story?
7.   What does The Misfit mean at the end when he says about the grandmother, "She would of been a good woman... if it had been somebody there to shoot her every minute of her life"?
9. How is conincidence used to advance the lot?  How do coincidences lead to ironies in the story?
