Comparison And Contrast Between Flannery OConnors A Good Man Is Hard To Find And Robert Coovers The Universal Baseball Association







At first Flannery OConnors A Good Man is Hard to Find and Robert Coovers The Universal Baseball Association seem too different to be compared. The first one is a short story written in the early 1950s, and the second one is a novel from the late 1960s. OConners story is about an unnamed selfish and hypocritical grandmother murdered by an escaped convict, and Coovers novel is about an unhappy accountant (J. Henry Waugh) who escapes reality by immersing himself in a world where he takes all decisions. He creates a baseball league, where all of the teams are owned by him, and the actions of the players are ruled by the dice.

Both stories end up with the death of a main character. Damon Rutherford, a promising young player, is killed by a ball, and the unnamed Grandmother is killed by the Misfit. Both stories represent different genres, and are influenced by the trends of their time. Robert Coovers novel is a black fictional comedy and the action takes place in two different worlds, while OConnor sticks to reality.
