Which excerpt from Flannery O’Connor’s “Good Country People” best identifies the narrative as a piece of Southern gothic literature?
Joy was her daughter, a blonde girl who had an artificial leg.
The reason for her keeping them so long was that they were . . . good country people.
Her name was really Joy but as soon as she was twenty-one and away from home, she had had it legally changed.
One of her major triumphs was that her mother had not been able to turn her dust into Joy.
