E111 Flannery O'Connor

Then Again

In this episode, Marie Bartlett interviews Dr. Joran Cofer about the life, work, and times of one of Georgia's greatest writers, Flannery O'Connor. Dr. Jordan Cofer is the Associate Provost for Transformative Learning Experiences at the Georgia College and State University in Milledgeville, the town that O'Conner called home for much of her life. O'Connor was not a prolific writer during her short life; she only published two novels and two collections of short stories, but her legacy has been an enduring one as the themes she tackled in her stories intrigue scholars and draw the interest of an international audience to this day.Dr. Cofer plugs the Andalusia Institute in the podcast: Here is the description from their website: The Andalusia Institute, the public arts and humanities center of Georgia College, supports Flannery O’Connor scholarship, nourishes writing and the creative arts, and engages community members with the arts and humanities.https://www.gcsu.edu/andalusiainstitute This podcast is powered by Pinecast.

Ninety-Nine Novels: Wise Blood by Flannery O'Connor

The International Anthony Burgess Foundation Podcast

In 1984, Anthony Burgess published Ninety-Nine Novels, a selection of his favourite novels in English since 1939. The list is typically idiosyncratic, and shows the breadth of Burgess's interest in fiction. This podcast, by the International Anthony Burgess Foundation, explores the novels on Burgess's list with the help of writers, critics and other special guests. In this episode, Will Carr of the Burgess Foundation talks to writer and academic Alison Arant about Wise Blood by Flannery O'Connor. Published in 1952, Wise Blood is Flannery O’Connor’s first novel and shows many of the themes that would come to characterise her short but extraordinary career. Set in the American South, and dealing with a cast of grotesques, it is a novel of complex religious themes and has come to be known as a classic of twentieth century literature. Alison Arant is Associate Professor and Chair of the English Department at Wagner College in Staten Island, New York. Her research focusses on the American South, African American literature and women’s literature. Her most recent publication is Reconsidering Flannery O’Connor, which she edited with Jordan Colfer. This collection examines new theoretical approaches to O’Connor’s work and interrogates established views of her fiction and legacy. It is available now from the University Press of Mississippi. ------- BOOKS MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: By Flannery O'Connor: Mystery and Manners: Occasional Prose (1957) Everything That Rises Must Converge (1965) 'A Good Man is Hard to Find' in The Complete Short Stories (1971) By others: Earthly Powers by Anthony Burgess (1980) The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison (1970) ------- LINKS: Reconsidering Flannery O'Connor at University Press of MississippiThe Andalusia Institute WebsiteInternational Anthony Burgess FoundationThe theme music is Anthony Burgess's Concerto for Flute, Strings and Piano in D Minor.
