Flannery O'Connor on the South

"What has given the South her identity are those beliefs and qualities which she has absorbed from the Scriptures and from her own history of defeat and violation: a distrust of the abstract, a sense of human dependence on the grace of God, and a knowledge that evil is not simply a problem to be solved, but a mystery to be endured," she said, quoted by Glenn C. Arbery in his essay — Ontological Splendor: Flannery O’Connor in the Protestant South.
