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).
She demonstrated signs of egoism. The Grandmother took her cat to the trip despite her son’s objections. She also made Bailey to change traffic rout to visit a house of her youth (that appeared to be in another state). It is possible to say woman’s indirect actions became a reason of family’s death. The Grandmother also looks naive and effusive; the character showed she recognized Misfit without thought of consequences of such move.

In the story it says, “ ‘I know, I know. You’ve said that a hundred times,’ she snapped. ‘What did you say?’ He asked, pushing his newspaper aside.” Maria’s conflict connects to the theme of the story because she is being ungrateful towards her father and wants to grow up too fast.

His mother, Bonnie (Darlene Cates), gained a massive amount of weight after her husband killed himself in the basement of the home they still live in. With nothing to do but eat and watch TV Bonnie went from the most beautiful woman in Endora to nearly five hundred pounds. Bonnie being unable to care for the household, Gilbert becomes plagued with the responsibilities of repairing the old house and looking after Arnie, while his sisters Amy (Laura Harrington) and Ellen (Mary Kate Schellhardt) finish what Gilbert can’t.
Neither character could maintain control as death wraps its arms around them until full submission is given. Miriam tells the elder woman what she wanted and the next day the elder lady without thinking about it goes out and purchases these items. Arnold friend gets Connie to willingly leave the house with his intuitive complex mind games. Looking at the plot of the stories you can see the similarities.
