The story provides no evidence or background on what crimes the Misfit and his gang have committed, therefore, the reader must“It was a head-doctor at the penitentiary said what I had done was kill my daddy but I known that for a lie” (258).
From this passage, no information is revealed regarding his alleged crimes, and for that reason, the Misfit cannot possibly be viewed as a crazy-minded psycho.
Is our evolving national character a liability in our foreign relations?
Let's try to think of an original American tableau—the sort of scene, not happening elsewhere, that shows just how very different we are from all others.
The Misfit informs the grandmother that he has no intention of stealing anything from anyone, “Nobody had nothing I wanted” (258).
Through deeper analysis one can The Misfit states that “if I had been there [and seen Jesus raise from the dead] I would of known and I wouldn’t be like I am now” (O’Connor 1316).TV at its best connects with you directly, personally, because it's a small box in your house, maybe even in your room. There is no more intimate connection that you have with anything other than the people next to you.The Misfit is a complex character created by Flannery O’Connor.To the Misfit believing would mean knowing, and knowing would mean to witness all of what Jesus Christ has done.When the Misfit is asked what event started his homicidal rage, the Misfit states “I forgot what I done. The Misfit says later on that he never saw the papers either, so if he can’t remember, and has seen no proof who is the justice system to say that he was the one to commit the crime.Because of his kind nature in the beginning of the story, it’s almost impossible to understand how he could just kill.Through deeper analysis one can characterize the Misfit with a heart of gold, but the mind of a villain.“Been in the arm service, both land and sea, at home and abroad, been twict married, been an undertaker, been with the railroads, plowed Mother Earth, been in a tornado, seen a man burnt alive oncet” (258).Besides being a good citizen of the United States, his goal was to escape without hurting anyone in the process.This characterization is true because somewhere along the line he was wrongly accused of murdering his father and was brutally punished and he was mistreated by the justice system.The Misfit knows he was innocent and neither Jesus nor the justice system could rid him of the punish he received.
