As it pertains to A Good Man Is Hard To Find it shows a motive and means into how a human can, betray oner’s own and anotherr’s humanity. Toward the end of the story it seem as if the grandmother is coming to grips with her own moral kinship with the criminal, Yet the misfit passes judgement upon his victim with no sense of moral structure.
This is precisely what the article is trying to explain Our Moral Character is built by the choices we make and the actions we perform.
Author William Bonney Stated In his article although he is a murderer, the Misfit is the only character in the story with any sense of what it means to ask morally serious questions about human experience, and the quality makes him remotely connotative of the eternal misfit, Christ. In many ways moral structure is the result of many different factors such as family, church, society, school, est. Flannery OConnor like to add a touch of spirituality to her stories, with A good man is hard to find it seem as though she is using the Christ to paint the picture of the story to teach a moral lesson. The article expresses the grandmother as manipulative and moralistic and in many way she was especially when she did things such as bribing her granddaughter, inciting the children to disrespect their father, not telling the truth about the old house with the secret panel, When the misfit stated Christ didnt raise the dead and in a effort to ingratiate herself with the agnostic the misfit said maybe he didnt raise the dead her own moral compass seems conflicted. While the Misfit seems as if he lost all sense of his motility and now feel that because of all the things he when through in his life he is morally obligated to commit these heinous crimes. As these two characters have this conversation it seems as if the misfit is realizing that his moral structure is a result of the choices he made or other made that guided him to that moment.
