This study interprets Flannery O'Connor's fiction on its own terms. By stepping back from prevailing controversies, the author turns to the short stories and novels themselves and forms an impression of them while seeking the answers to such questions as they necessarily suggest themselves. This goal inevitably entails a consideration of the hardness and violence that are the hallmark of O'Connor's work. For the author, that severity is inseparable from O'Connor's recounting, in her words, the action of grace. God's bounty can leave its beneficiaries with some vey real handicaps. Grace in this fiction can make the blood run cold; it can do real injury to the body; and it can annihilate.
