Gateway Lit Crit for The (Burgeoning) O'Connor Expert
Return to Good and Evil is a book for, who Mr. Edmondson himself calls, the 'serious dilettante' of O'Connor. His thesis is simple: that evil is so pervasive it has become imperceptible. He uses O'Connor's fiction, most notably Wise Blood, to illustrate how O'Conner fought the popular notion that to believe nothing was an apt platform from which to dive into creative vision. This book was highly instrumental in buttressing my own appreciation for Flannery O'Connor-- perhaps even the philosophy of my own faith. Excellent gateway book to more in-depth O'Connor study.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
