Short Story #235 Good Country People by Flannery O'Connor
Title: Good Country People
Author: Flannery O'Connor
ReflectionThe more I read of O'Connor, the more I like. In fact, one of the anthologies that I bought this year was of her collected short stories that I plan to read. This was a curious story in that there was so much going on between Hopewell and Freeman and then between Pointer and Joy that it takes re-reading to get it all. The names alone are worth exploring and considering but also the relationships between children and parents. Finally, the dynamics between Joy and Pointer are fascinating in that her intelligence renders her powerless since he plays upon her weaknesses.
