Characteristics Of The Misfit People can be very misunderstood especially literary characters in dramatic stories In Flannery OConners A Good Man Is Hard To Find the Misfit is judged by the grandmothers point of view At the beginning of the story she reads about the Misfit and compiles her own data on his lifestyle and says I wouldnt take my children in any direction with a criminal like that aloose in it That is basically saying that he is an evil man that she would not want to be close to so all ready she has given him a bad rap She has placed the Misfit in the role of a man who is a criminal who does not like to be messed with and a rough rugged scary looking guy He has been misunderstood throughout the story because of his past history of being a criminal His traits are different then described but he does have some likeness to what the grandmother pictures The grandmother describes him as a rough rugged man who is very mean He is also described as a person who is not well dressed and very dirty and scruffy looking When she encounters the Misfit she is surprised at how wrong she was The Misfit is a very well dressed man who looks very clean and innocent according to the grandmother He would not be mistaken for a criminal This surprises the grandmother because he not only is very innocent looking but he is acting very intelligently He presents himself in a very polite manner and his facial expressions and his clothing speak very highly of himself He acts very polite under the circumstances which is out in the middle of nowhere The atmosphere shows how calm and collected he can be which shows no sign of a lunatic from prison So what the grandmother read at the beginning of the story about the misfit had given a false interpretation
