New Podcast Episode: “Flannery O’Connor and the Wart Hog from Hell” with Dr. Kent Lasnoski
Anyone who has read Flannery O’Conner’s stories knows that she was convinced that “the repugnant distortions of modern life” appeared far too natural and normal to many Americans and she was quite willing to use “ever more violent means” to point that out.
Her short story “Revelation” exemplifies her dictum that “to the hard of hearing you shout, and for the almost blind you draw large and startling figures.”
This summer, Dr. Kent Lasnoski assigned “Revelation” to high school juniors and seniors during Wyoming Catholic College’s PEAK Program. Dr. Lasnoski is our guest on this week’s edition of “The After Dinner Scholar.” (The text of O’Connor’s story is available HERE, and the article Dr. Lasnoski wrote for Dappled Things can be found HERE.)
