A Good Man is Hard to Find” Flannery O’Conner
Prompt: Select “A Good Man is Hard to Find” Flannery O’Conner, and develop a response to the following: Identify the point of view used in the narration of the story. Provide a specific example from the story to illustrate your argument. Discuss how this perspective affects your reading and interpretation of the story. Consider how a different type of narration might alter the effect of the story. Point of view refers to the perspective from which the story is narrated. First person: In first person, the story is told from the perspective of the narrator, using first-person pronouns. (“We are driving off the bridge!” I screamed.) Second person: This is not commonly used. In second person, the narrator addresses the reader as “you,” which gives the audience the feeling that they are a part of the story. (Example: As you drive off the bridge, you scream, but no one hears you.) Third person: The story is told using third-person pronouns (“The car is driving off the bridge!” he shouted), and the narrator is either godlike in the ability to see and know everything (third-person omniscient) or not all-knowing with knowledge limited to the perspective of only one character (third-person limited).
