Publisher's Comments

American author Flannery O'Connor (1925-1964) produced two novels, 32 stories, and numerous essays and articles. Independent scholar Prown examines O'Connor's development as an artist, particularly as a southern female artist, and considers the reasons for feminist critical neglect of the writer. Particular attention is paid to O'Connor's relationship with her mentor, Caroline Gordon. Prown also discusses O'Connor in relation to the Fugitive/Agrarian and New Critical movements. Annotation c.
