the color of innocence

| | Comments (0)

When asked how old her daughter is the old woman answers ‘fifteen, sixteen’.

“The girl was nearly thirty but because of her innocence it was impossible to guess.” (O’Connor, “The Life you Save May Be Your Own” pg 55)

Mrs. Crater’s manipulates everyone so her mute daughter will be married. I think this quote shows how innocent she is. They refer to her as an “angel of gwad.” She does marry Tom Shiftlet.  I thought it was incredible how she has a prevalent role and yet doesn’t speak. I also noticed the O’Connor‘s theme of religion. They are in a small southern town and I think religion played a role.
