Essay: "A Life of Relativistic Futility: Flannery O'Connor's "Good Country People" and Its Allegorical Portrayal of Postmodernism"

As you can probably tell from the title, the purpose of this essay was a literary analysis of Flannery O'Connor's "Good Country People." I wrote this for my English 1102 composition class back on February 8, 2010.

As you can see from the scans below, my prof left a lot of marks showing where I made some sort of errors. Amazingly, I still managed to get an A- (92) on this paper, with the concluding comment of "very original but it's not fully developed."

Actually, this ended up being the worst essay I wrote for this class. Unfortunately, I didn't have the foresight to save any of my other essays, so I won't be able to share them with you. I did earn grades in the upper 90's on several of the later ones, so I definitely improved over the span of the course.
