Mystery and Manners: Occasional Prose

His vision cannot be detached from his moral sense. The novelist and teacher are both charged with making messes suffused with grace. This is not to say that Catholics own her writing. In an educational sense, the extent of their religious practice is less important than the appropriation of Catholic iconography, symbolism, narrative tradition, and even the ritual language of Mass. Whether respectful or parodic of the Word, they all have been formed by it. Which, I think, makes her worth teaching.

It is one who became man and rose from the dead. O'Connor, as Jill Baumgaertner notes, thought "God used her and her talents as an instrument" of divine revelation, that she was a "channel for God's grace and the Holy Spirit's breath" As a conduit of divinity, she felt morally compelled to disseminate the sacramental vision to a benighted world ignorant of the ways of God to man. When you write about backwoods prophets, it is very difficult to get across to the modern reader that you take these people seriously, that you are not making fun of them, but that their concerns are your own and, in your judgment, central to human life. It is almost inconceivable to this reader that such could be the case. For readers, at least those who publish, have proved ingratiatingly receptive to her "prophet-freaks.

The essays explore the popular Southern fiction writer in context with preconceived perceptions of the Southern Gothic style of writing. O'Connor also delves into the mystery of Christian writers whose beliefs are almost always in conflict with the popular mores of the day. O'Connor's strong Catholic beliefs guide her work and her view on writing in authentic truth. The book begins with the essay, The King of the Birds, which is representative of O'Connor's essay style. As the reader will learn, O'Connor believes in writing about things and people which are familiar to her, and this piece addresses her love for collecting birds which culminates in her flock of peacocks. O'Connor not only describes the birds' physicality but also their impact on her life and on the workings of her Georgia farm.
