♥ Book Title : Narrating Knowledge in Flannery O'Connor's Fiction
☯ Full Synopsis : "A linguistic approach to the novels and short stories of Flannery O'Connor; In Narrating Knowledge in Flannery O'Connor's Fiction, Donald E. Hardy examines themes in Flannery O'Connor's fiction concerning the limitations of human knowledge. He argues that attending to O'Connor's stylistic strategies allows the best access to her views about knowledge in all its manifestations - spiritual, rational, and emotional - whether the knowledge is that of the narrator, the narratee, or the characters of her narratives. It also, he maintains, allows readers to appreciate the mysteries she sought to underscore. Surveying O'Connor's fiction, early as well as late, Hardy concludes that the writer's differentiation between grades of knowledge, along with the intimations she offered of what lies behind knowledge - of the ineffable behind the rational - finds only partial expression in the content of her narratives and in her narrative summings-up. For a thorough understanding it is necessary to turn to her employment of certain linguistic devices open to analysis. These include dependent clauses, for rendering presuppositions explicit; negations, for blocking suppositions; and participials descri"Article| Donald E. Hardy| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Conversations with Flannery O'Connor
☯ Full Synopsis : "As this collection of interviews shows, Flannery O'Connor's fiction, though bound to a particular time and place, embodies and reveals universal ideas. O'Connor's curiosity about human nature and its various manifestations compelled her to explore mysterious places in the mind and heart. Despite her short life and prolonged illness, O'Connor was interviewed in a variety of times and locations. The circumstances of the interviews did not seem to matter much to O'Connor; her approach and demeanor remained consistent. Her self-knowledge was always apparent, in her confidence in herself, in her enterprise as a writer, and in her beliefs. She could penetrate the surfaces; she could see things in depth. Her perceptions were wide-ranging and insightful. Her interviews, given sparingly but with careful reflection and precision, make a unique contribution to an understanding of her fiction and to the evolving narrative of her short but influential life. Dr. Rosemary M. Magee is Vice President and Secretary of the University at Emory University."Article| Flannery O'Connor, Rosemary M. Magee| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Flannery O'Connor and Teilhard de Chardin
☯ Full Synopsis : "Flannery O’Connor, the renowned short-story writer, lived and fought a tumultuous battle with lupus erythematosus most of her adult life. In her last five years, she sought insightful and helpful sources to alleviate her struggle with the disease. Among these sources were the ideas and thoughts of a Jesuit-paleontologist-mystic by the name of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, an individual who opened doors of witness to the secular world and attracted suspicious questioning from his Catholic superiors. Like a moth drawn to a flame, Flannery O’Connor, a devoted Thomist, increasingly admired the ideas of Teilhard de Chardin to the point that she incorporated his ideas into her last six short stories in the collection Everything That Rises Must Converge. This book adds significantly to the neglected study of Teilhard de Chardin’s influence in the later literary development of Flannery O’Connor. This book would be a valuable asset to students and scholars focusing on American literature, Southern literature, twentieth-century Southern female writers, and Flannery O’Connor."Article| Steven R.

♥ Book Title : Flannery O'Connor
☯ Full Synopsis : "This study explores the dualities that inform the entire body of Flannery O'Connor's fiction. From the almost unredeemable world of Wise Blood to the climactic moments of revelation that infuse The Violent Bear It Away and Everything That Rises Must Converge, O'Connor's novels and stories wrestle with extremes of faith and reason, acceptance and revolt; they arch between cool narrative and explosive action, between a sacramental vision and a primary intuition of reality."Article| Frederick Asals| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Volume 12, Tome IV: Kierkegaard's Influence on Literature, Criticism and Art
☯ Full Synopsis : "While Kierkegaard is primarily known as a philosopher or religious thinker, his writings have also been used extensively by literary writers, critics and artists. This use can be traced in the work of major cultural figures not just in Denmark and Scandinavia but also in the wider world. They have been attracted to his creative mixing of genres, his complex use of pseudonyms, his rhetoric and literary style, and his rich images, parables, and allegories. The present volume documents this influence in the different language groups and traditions. Tome IV examines Kierkegaard’s surprisingly extensive influence in the Anglophone world of literature and art, particularly in the United States. His thought appears in the work of the novelists Walker Percy, James Baldwin, Flannery O’Connor, William Styron, Don Delillo, and Louise Erdrich. He has also been used by the famous American literary critics, George Steiner and Harold Bloom. The American composer Samuel Barber made use of Kierkegaard in his musical works. Kierkegaard has also exercised an influence on British and Irish letters. W.H. Auden sought in Kierkegaard ideas for his poetic works, and the contemporary English novelist David Lodge has written a novel Therapy, in which Kierkegaard plays an important role. Cryptic traces of Kierkegaard can also be found in the work of the famous Irish writer James Joyce."Article| Jon Stewart| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Ritual Performance in the Fiction of Flannery O'Connor
☯ Full Synopsis : "Flannery O'Connor wrote some thirty short stories and two novellas in her brief but brilliant literary career, including such remarkable works as 'Wise Blood' (1952), 'The Violent Bear It Away' (1960), and the short story anthology, A Good Man Is Hard To Find (1955). While she enjoyed considerable recognition during her lifetime, since her death in 1964 at age 39 her work has garnered even greater acclaim at the national and international levels. The proliferation of O'Connor studies and the increased presence of her works in both the high school and college curriculum clearly support the view that her position as an eminent American writer is secure. Cynthia Seel's study offers a decidedly new way of reading O'Connor. Analyzing six works in detail -- the short stories 'Mystery That is Lived,' 'A Circle in the Fire,' 'The Artificial Nigger,' 'The Lame shall Enter First,' 'A Temple of the Holy Ghost,' and 'A Stroke of Good Fortune' -- Seel examines O'Connor's primary use of ritual as form (or aesthetic frame) and as transforming action, and thus illuminates the method and impact of O'Connor's works afresh. While O'Connor's affinity for ritual has not gone unnoticed, no one has before assembled and analyzed ritual as it has appeared in a wide range of her fiction, as this book does. It will interest students and teachers of American literature, Southern Studies, feminist theory, and ritual studies. Cynthia L. Seel received her Ph.D. in Performance Studies from Northwestern University."Article| Cynthia Seel| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Flannery O'Connor
☯ Full Synopsis : "Flannery O'Connor: The Woman, the Thinker, the Visionary evaluates O'Connor from the standpoint of one who knew her well and corresponded with her for six years on significant religious and literary matters. More than twenty letters written by O'Connor to Spivey are in her collected letters, and he quotes from these letters and other sources to present a picture of O'Connor as not only a brilliant writer of fiction, but as an intellectual and a student of the great Western tradition in literature and religion.One of the chief points of this book, still neglected by most critics, is O'Connor's deep connection with writers such as Joyce Bernanos, Buber, and Mauriac and how understanding these relationships can help us define her better in the context of the Modernist tradition. O'Connor's close study of these and other religious writers, such as Teilhard de Chardin, led her to bring forth in her fiction competing visions of world apocalypse and of a renewed religious community in the world."Article| Ted R. Spivey| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Nouvelles du sud
☯ Full Synopsis : "Cet ouvrage sur la nouvelle est à la fois une introduction au genre et à certains auteurs du Sud des États-Unis, ainsi qu'au Gothique et au Grotesque, deux modes importants de la littérature sudiste. Le manuel se présente comme une invitation à la lecture à travers l'exploration du maître des genres de la littérature américaine. Il se veut aussi une découverte du Sud et de quelques auteurs marquants de cette terre peuplée de fantômes et de monstres, où rêves et chimères hantent un imaginaire surprenant et envoûtant.

♥ Book Title : Revising Flannery O'Connor
☯ Full Synopsis : "In her short life, the prolific Flannery O'Connor (1925-1964) authored two novels, thirty-two stories, and numerous essays and articles. Although her importance as a twentieth-century southern writer is unquestionable, mainstream feminist criticism has generally neglected O'Connor's work. In Revising Flannery O'Connor, Katherine Hemple Prown addresses the conflicts O'Connor experienced as a "southern lady" and professional author. Placing gender at the center of her analytical framework, Prown considers the reasons for feminist critical neglect of the writer and traces the cultural origins of the complicated aesthetic that informs O'Connor's fiction, both published and unpublished. O'Connor's relationship with her mentor Caroline Gordon, and its eventual disintegration, played a significant role in her development. As Prown shows, it underlines the shift from the relatively "feminine" authorial voice of O'Connor's earliest drafts toward the decidedly masculinized tone of her final, published works. Incorporating an insightful examination of the author in relation to the Fugitive/Agrarian and New Critical movements, Prown provides an original exploration of O'Connor's changing gender perspectives."Article| Katherine Hemple Prown| Statement ..."
