the flawed

“Mrs. Hopewell had no bad qualities of her own but she was able to use other people in such a constructive way that she had kept them four years.” (O’Connor 69)

It goes on to say “Nothing’s perfect.” Mrs. Hopewell is flawed and realizes life isn’t perfect. She isn’t fully supportive of her daughter even though she is well educated. Her name is Joy however, she is not joyful. She is almost bitter to me. Her artificial leg made her vulnerable.

I really enjoyed this story. It was again a bit different from O’Connor’s short stories. There was the theme of religion.
