Introduction to Flannery O’Connor 4.0: Alpha, Omega and In Between

Flannery O’Connor’s first short story “The Geranium” was written in 1946. Her final short story “Judgement Day” was published in 1965 posthumously after her death in 1964; it reprises and revises her first story. These bookends demonstrate how her craft as a writer evolved. Read two of her mid-career stories, “The Life You Save May Be Your Own” and “A Late Encounter with the Enemy,” published in 1955. Introductory material is provided to better understand her life and milieu.
