Professor Amy Hungerfords first lecture on Flannery OConnors Wise Blood addresses questions of faith and interpretation. She uses excerpts from OConnors copious correspondence to introduce the critical framework of OConnors Catholicism, but invites us to look beyond the question of redemption. What do characters see in this text, and what are they blind to? What do we see as readers, and how does methodology shape this vision?
