Art for God's Sake Class

Short Stories by Flannery O'Connor

Taught by Britta Rowe

A Roman Catholic who lived most of her short life in Georgia, O'Connor was a noted 20th-century fiction writer. The fruits of her artistic labors have been labeled dark, gothic, and grotesque—yet also comic and redemptive. In her own words: "In my stories a reader will find that the devil accomplishes a good deal of groundwork before grace is effective ... I have found, in short, from reading my own writing, that my subject in fiction is the action of grace in territory held largely by the devil." This study of some of O'Connor's stories aims to reveal the deeply redemptive work of imaginative fiction made in honor of the truth of God's always surprising mercy and grace.
