Foreshadow & Imagery

"They looked like a skeleton of an old boat with two pointed ends, sailing slowly on the edge of a highway" (O'Connor 31).

I enjoyed the descriptive detail that O'Connor used in this short story. I also found that his imagery provided a sharp image of the scene at the time. In the above quote I could see how they were lined up from tall to short then back to tall. Giving the perception of the two points. Also the use of skeleton is mention many times in the text. I believe this plays an important role because it is leading to Bevel's death. The constant mention of water and boats are all apart of his death in drowning. So I believe O'Connor did a great job in using examples that foreshadowed the end of the story.
