review The Terrible Speed of Mercy ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook free download The Terrible Speed of Mercy “Many of my ardent admirers would be roundly shocked and disturbed if they realized that everything I believe is thoroughly moral thoroughly Catholic and that it is these beliefs that give my work its chief characteristics” Flannery O’ConnorFlannery O’Connor’s work has been described as “profane blasphemous and outrageous” Her stories are peopled by a sordid caravan of murderers and thieves prostitutes and bigots whose lives ar I do not know why this is called a spiritual biography A biography I imagine to be a story of one s life from beginning to end from infancy to maturity old age and death Flannery O Connor however seemed to be as Catholic as she was born when she died not yet 40 There had been no ups and downs in it or the swaying from belief to unbelief and back No dark nights of the soul Maybe calling this a spiritual biography was just an excuse for its brevity So no one can criticize it as a haphazardly written biography proper

review The Terrible Speed of Mercy ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook free download The Terrible Speed of Mercy E punctuated by horror and sudden violence But perhaps the most shocking thing about Flannery O’Connor’s fiction is the fact that it is shaped by a thoroughly Christian vision If the world she depicts is dark and terrifying it is also the place where grace makes itself known Her world our world is the stage whereon the divine comedy plays out; the freakishness and violence in O’Connor’s stories so often mistaken for a kind of misanth And if Southern writers have a tendency to write about freaks O Connor remarked it is because we are still able to recognize one p 21This is a beautifully crafted book It was the most perfect orientation to the heart and mind of Flannery O Connor and it gave me the confidence to meet her writing with the right openness of mind I have long cringed at the name Flannery O Connor presuming her work to be macabre and something unholy As a Catholic and lover of classics I always puzzled over her name being connected with great modern Catholic writers but was too cowardly to meet her on her own terms I credit Mr Rogers with helping me to fall in love with this remarkable author and her important fictionAnd than ever now it seems that the kingdom of heaven has to be taken by violence or not at all You have to push as hard as the age that pushes you The Habit of Being 229 This beautiful biography has some spoilers in it for the new O Connor reader but I confess those spoilers were a mercy to me Knowing the fate of the grandmother prepared me and helped me to read the story with the right focus I think that Mr Rogers must really love Flannery O Connor He worked very hard to let her tell her own self story by citing countless letters and essays While he gave us the outline he filled it in with her own words and ideas and did it in a way that felt relaxed friendly and intelligent like his subject herself He showed profound respect for her theology and faith and worked hard to help the reader understand how those beliefs influenced O Connor s attitudes and writing I genuinely feel like I have met and chatted with this remarkable soul thanks to Mr Rogers I sobbed at her death and appreciated his beautiful treatment of it It is remarkable to think about this woman who had made a name for herself with stories of earthly terror and grotesuerie meditating every day on the province of joy lest she be ignorant of the concerns of her true country All that darkness was in the service of eternal brightness All that violence was in the service of peace and serenity p 162
