Changing the thought process can change a life. In "A Great Man is Hard to Find" by Flannery O 'Connor, love and reconciliation are important for the characters. The impolite grandma, a manipulative old woman, deceives her family into going to a different state than they expected. Grandma was informed by the news that a murder streak was occurring by a man named “Misfit”. When the two run into each other, the grandma turns into a minding, adoring lady.
The first way you can look at the fact that he’s a killer and nothing else matters and just that little detail makes him a bad man. Or you can look more into detail of the Misfit and realize that even though he’s a killer he’s truly a good man at heart. For example, when the son Bailey told his mother (grandmother) something that made her cry when she made it known that she knew he was the Misfit, the misfit actually responded the grandmother in a very loving and respectful way. The misfit could’ve told her to shut up or something heartless but instead he tells the grandmother “don’t get upset. Sometimes a man says things he doesn’t mean.
The author has written this story to offer the reader’s an inside look into the grandmother’s self-centered and selfish mindset. Bluntly speaking, it is believed that the reader’s should have seen the outcome coming after realizing the grandmother’s mentality. O’ Conner’s skill as a short story writer enables her to express subtle use of foreshadowing helps depict the family and grandmother’s demise by evoking feeling of inevitability.
To give one example of manipulation, Flannery O'Connor, Georgia State author of "A Good Man Is Hard to Find", writes that "You wouldn't shoot a lady, would you?"(421). The grandmother is trying to make the misfit vulnerable, even though he has already killed everyone but her. She's begging the misfit for her life. Every one of those people would still be alive if it was not for the grandmother. She did not have much hope left anyways for her life because she annoyed the misfit with her ugly and selfish ways.
Nanny who has been Janie’s caretaker has several hopes and dreams for her granddaughter. Nanny is not entirely perfect at her job of raising Janie, since her dreams for her are clouded by her own scarring experiences. Nanny attempts to insure a better life for Janie by forcing her to marry Logan Killicks, an old and wealthy man. Blinded by her own dreams, hopes, and desires, Nanny makes many impositions on Janie, “Have some sympathy fuh me. Put me down easy, Janie, Ah’m a cracked plate” (Hurston 20).
O’Connor is also suggesting that The Misfit does not care if the Grandmother begs him to not kill her. These words make me think of the theme violence because he is shooting the grandmother with no remorse. This connects with 4. Flannery O’Connor’s “A Good Man Is Hard to Find” portrays foreshadowing by hinting in the beginning of the story that the families’ deaths are approaching. For example, “Foreshadowing remark: “In case of an accident, anyone seeing her dead on the highway would know at once that she was a lady”” (Bloom).
The misfit tells her his story, about what happen to his father and the suffering for he thinks he is innocent and cant remember what has he done. The grandmother then realize that no amount of manipulation can get him to stop what he is doing. He is dead inside. O’Connor here makes the grandmother have a moment of final faith. When she claims the misfit as one of her own and touch him.
(6:27). O 'Connor presents both the view of the Misfit as a fellow human being in pain, and the feeling of love for him, as a gift from God. The grandmother as a human being, is prone towards evil and selfishness, so she could never have come to feel such love without God 's help, as this man was going to kill her. This moment of grace is incredibly important in the story. The Misfit kills the grandmother, withdrawing from her and what seems foreign to him (human compassion), but the grandmother already had her moment of redemption.
However at the end it’s clear that the reader’s reaction can change when she has the conversation with the Misfit, she repeatedly says “I know you’re a good man... You wouldn’t shoot a lady”(14-15), because the reader know thinks that she really is selfish but she’s also ignorant and petty. The only reason that the grandmother is saying positive things about the misfit is because her life is at risk and the second part of the quote shows that she cares about herself and doesn 't ask if he would kill all the family. It shows all her pettiness making the reader think “No wonder why June Star wants her dead”. This is the grandmother’s characteristics of being selfish, ignorant, petty and etc but underneath all the evil that the grandmother has there can be some good things in her just like the
