A good man is hard to find conflict

It is especially different in what concerns plot, characters and conflicts. Although the purpose of this journal is to comment on the conflicts, there will be comments about characters and plot, which will be elusive for the comprehension of the conflicts later on.

Stories usually have a main character that the reader likes for one reason or anotherand this is not what happens in this one. The protagonist here is someone the reader does not really like. The grandmother is shown to be a very manipulative, annoying and nosy person.

She tells the people in the family what to do all the time, besides just feeling like doing what she wants to do like bringing the cat for the trip with her, although the father did not want her to. In relation to plot, something intriguing happens. The reader cannot really get what the plot is about at first.

He might have some foreshadowing, like the mention of the Misfit or the foreshadowing about the car accident, right on page: But what really keeps the reader interested on the story is the idea of what the plot is about, what is going to happen next. The story is permeated by conflicts of all kinds. There can be found physical conflict, social conflict and also the psychological one. There is a visible family conflict during the developing of the whole story.

None of the characters really seem to like or care about each other. The mother is almost not developed in the story perfect example of a flat character ; the children do not show respect for the parents or the grandmother and the parents also do not seem to be that caring about the children or the grandmother. On the contrary, she shows to have a very selfish personality, being annoying and manipulative during the whole trip.

There is also a social conflict, and this is present in the second part of the story this is, after the car accidentin which the Misfit and the two other guys appear. It is the conflict between the robbers or murderers and the family.

What is the main conflict in A Good Man Is Hard to Find by Flannery O'Connor?

The murderers, obviously, come from a distinct economical class than the people from the family [1]. Besides, the kind of language used by those men slang, informal and very colloquial is perceptively contrasting to the one the family uses more formal and well-elaborated, although not completely formal.

In addition to it, there is this whole idea of robbers being the opposite of good citizens. They are the opposite of what society is expected to be. Finally, there is the interior conflict, and it seems to be the most interesting in the story.

As it has been said before, there had been shown just one face of the grandmother, for what we understood her to be a very selfish, nosy and manipulative person. However, there is a complete change of her personality almost in the end of the story. There, she shows to be a really caring person, when she says: There, she shows what she comes for in the world: The reader feels that she does not have this attitude towards the man just because she wants to save her life; but because she even had a revelation at that specific moment epiphany.

From that on, and started to comprehend her own role, which was caring about the people who were alone, like a real maternal instinct of protection. She feels that people are not to live on their own, as it has been said before.

One cannot deny this is a very maternal instinct, and since it is the central point of the story, there is a lot of feminism in it. And this could be a good discussion for a further journal. Introduction to Literature Professor:
