Name: Professor: Course: Date: Analysing Humorous Events and Character in Flannery O'Connor. Flannery O'Connor is an American writer who was talented in writing of novels as well as short stories. In her life beside the short stories she has written novels reviews as well as commentaries. Her recommendable work was appreciated by many which gave her the urge and opportunity to continue with her tremendous work. Her first novel was referred to as Wise blood which was first published in 1946 which combined the keen ear for common speech and caustic religious imagination (Leigh 105). Nonetheless she portrays a tragic style of humour in three of her narratives that is "A good man is hard to find " "Good country people" as well as "Revelation" as discussed in this essay. However this humour may be considered dark but it is essential in bringing out the theme of these short eyes are a symbol of judgment towards Mrs. Turpin. She has violent eyes observed where she loses her patience and violently attacks Mrs. Turpin. In conclusion O'Connor's stories compares people to animals which depicts the dark humour through their character. For example in the ‘Revelation’ story where Mary Grace calls Mrs. Turpin a warthog which disturbs her mind with intensity. It is therefore evident that usage of humour in the stories is conspicuous since the author has embraced it in one way or another bringing out clear personalities of the characters in her stories.
