Flannery O’Connor Didn’t Care If You Liked Her Work

Fair enough . . .

Writers & Writing

Something fascinating about that point of view.

This is all to say that Flannery O’Connor did not care if you liked her work, and she certainly did not care, it would seem from her letters, if you liked her.

Writing was not for her a means of making a point or gaining admiration, though, being human, it is hard to imagine that she was not pleased at times with herself and her success.

Writing for her was a means of understanding herself: “I write because I don’t know what I think until I read what I say.”
