Excellent Collection of Letters

by ATadLooney on Dec 31, 2009

Superior writers sometimes create a kind of supplemental art in writing about their own fiction. An important part (by no means the whole) of this book of letters is O'Connor's vigilant commentary on various of her own works. My favorite is the polite rebuke of the English teacher who has written to confirm his opinion that all of "A Good Man Is Hard to Find" after the apperance of the murderous Misfit is a figment of Bailey's imagination. Among the most profound letters are those which realize the intellectual friendship that O'Connor has with a correspondent identified only as "A." These letters usually center on matters religious and/or theological and show in substance how O'Connor's art, like, say, Bunyan's, is the literary vocation of religious faith.
