This study explores the dualities that inform the entire body of Flannery O'Connor's fiction. From the almost unredeemable world of "Wise Blood" to the climactic moments of revelation that infuse "The Violent Bear It Away" and "Everything That Rises Must Converge," O'Connor's novels and stories wrestle with extremes of faith and reason, acceptance and revolt; they arch between cool narrative and explosive action, between a sacramental vision and a primary intuition of reality.
