Jeff Mabry 02-02-2010 revised 04-04-2010 Fiction Essay: “A Good Man is Hard to Find” In “A Good Man is Hard to Find”, a family is traveling to Florida for a relaxing vacation when unexpectedly they crash their vehicle and meet a man that will delay their travels, permanently. Flannery O’Conner word choices with surroundings, names, and colors have symbolic meanings as a way to set the tone and predict future events of this short story. O’Conner specifically used certain locations, word choice, and specific descriptive words to cast the plot and tone of her story. The narrator uses many descriptive words with most referring to color as the family ventures south. In the beginning the colors described are pleasant and neutral; once the family leaves Atlanta the colors become darker and have a more sinister meaning. The last referenced descriptive words used to express the surroundings before the wreck are “…, they would be in a red depression with dust-coated trees looking down on them.”
