Abstract:

"Flannery and Caroline: The Letters of Flannery O'Connor and Caroline Gordon, 1951-1964 is a full, annotated collection of the letters between two of the South's most acclaimed writers, from 1951 to 1964, the year of O'Connor's death. To date, only nine letters of the O'Connor-Gordon correspondence, scattered across four publications, so this volume will fill a major gap in our understanding of the two writers. Gordon (1895-1981), a more established writer at the start of their correspondence, acted as a mentor to the younger O'Connor (1924-1964). Gordon offered critical commentary on early versions of such legendary O'Connor stories as "A Good Man is Hard to Find" and "The Displaced Person," as well as O'Connor's debut novel, Wise Blood. Over the course of thirteen years, the letters in this collection reveal a deep friendship between two literary masters, as well as their roots, influences, concerns, and regrets"
