O’Connor’s Cartoons


In light of a forthcoming publication of Flannery O’Connor’s early drawings, this Guardian article takes a look at her cartoons.

The drawings—taken from the author’s high school and undergraduate years—are characterized as “O’Connor’s entry point to creativity” and reveal the beginnings of “the darkness” that would become central to her fiction.
