shock mode. I think she wants her audience to get this shock when they get killed  to provoke us and maybe even challenge us as readers. Some other phrases she  uses that are clich é  are “You can’t win”, “these days you don’t know who to trust”,  “Aint that the truth”, and “people are certainly not nice like they used to be”. The  title is clich é  because O’Connor wanted it to be that way. This is to draw you in  and make you feel like the story was going to be about one then shock you with  something else.  2. What do you infer from Mrs. Turpin’s conversation with the black farm  workers? Why does she now find the flattery unacceptable? Mrs. Turpin is a good example of a Christian hypocrite. She only talks to the black  farm workers to make sure everyone sees her as a good woman and because  she feels it is a part of her job. She does not respect them and even calls them  “idiot people”. Her whole persona is made up to impress and is not who she  really is. She pretends to be a good woman, a woman who is religious, a woman  who does not discriminate, and a woman who respects everyone but she is not.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
