The collection begins with Michael Kreyling's explanation of the nature and history of O'Connor's literary reputation using quotations from her letters and works and from critical reviews and articles covering the history of her presence in the canon. Four critical essays, alluded to in the general introduction, then take up the novel from four distinct and often controversial, points of view. Robert Brinkmeyer, Jr., who has written on O'Connor from a more or less traditional theological view in the past, writes a reevaluative essay from that point of view. Patricia Yaeger writes a feminist/psychoanalytical essay exploring the construction of the narrative voice in Wise Blood. James Mellard links O'Connor and Lacan, exploring territory that O'Connor herself found dangerous and irresistible: psychology and psychoanalysis. Lance Bacon, finally, writes one of the most original essays in print, placing O'Connor in the milieu of her times, American popular culture of the 1950s.
