Abstract
The motto of researching in literature is to try to bring a harmony in the society. Where social imbalance increases, need for liter-ary works sustains in that community. Flannery O’Connor is a writer who stressed on faith and literature in her public speeches. She gave in her literary works what the society exactly needed. She portrayed the South America in her works to bring out the sufferings of those people. This paper tries to prove that above title is the modern American reality, with the evidence of a couple of short stories by Connor “A Good Man is Hard to Find” and “Everything That Rises Must Converge”. “A Good Man is Hard to Find” is a Typical Connorial story with Mystic elements which follows southern gothic style, a style initiated by Connor. In addi-tion to realistic elements, human psyche, violence, and religion can be found with appropriate purpose in the stories of Connor. “A Good Man is Hard to Find” story starts normally moves with some ironical elements but it gave the violent ending which the reader never expects. "Everything That Rises Must Converge" is a story of mother and son relationship of the black/white divide but ended tragically which is not expected by the Son. This paper is a study on life in the south with the reference to Connor’s short stories. it is also an attempt to bring out the style of writing of Connor and the modern realistic elements in her works which are unique.

Key words: Flannery O’Connor, Gothic, Race, Religion, Short Stories, Social, Southern, South America ,Suffering ,Slavery, Violence.
