I Need You, but I Don't Need You

"Yet the supreme rationalist that he is, the Misfit cannot admit the need of a power beyond logic" (Desmond 130).

In O'Connor's story it seemed the Misfit had humanity figured out.  He recogized humanity ultimate flaw, but chose not to submit to the solution.  This is a classic case of intellectual laziness.  If you're going to go through all the trouble of finding the answer, then you better be prepared to accept that answer.  In a way, the misfit is the "sound and fury" of the story. By not being proactive about the solution, the Misfit proves himself to be the greatest fool in the story.

More Shakespeare here!
