Flannery OConner best known for her short stories about race religion and moral values was a very influential writer who is still respected for her works today There is a certain style to her works that make them all her own Her wonderfully captivating works also leave lots of room for interpretation As far as interpretation is concerned the first thing that caught my attention in her casebook was the quote Flannery OConner provides the unusual example of a writer who shared her own interpretation of her short stories with her readers In context this means OConner presented her own opinion on her works as though someone else wrote them and she was simply analyzing them These is a very interesting way of doing things because where most people would just be proud of their work and proclaim it as greatness OConner humbled herself enough to objectively analyze and criticize her own work Flannery OConnor has a unique style all her own The figures of speech used in OConnors writing range from similes and metaphors to inviting imagery One thing that OConnor is known for is her southern dialect and use of colloquialisms In her use of southern dialect OConnor adds the accent that a southerner has by using yall and other country contractions OConner also expresses her Southern heritage through statements such as I wouldnt talk about my native state that way Tennessee has the mountains and Georgia has the hills She would not know as much if she hadnt lived in the South and felt that way herself at one point in time OConnor also portrays the southern attitude towards other races quite well For example she refers to an African American child as a pickaninny in her statement Oh look at the cute little pickaninny she said and pointed to a negro child standing in the door of a shack Flannery OConnor has few talents in her stories that reflect her home
