In two of Flannery OConnors short stories, Revelation and A Good Man is Hard to find we find a lot of similarities in the authors portrayal of the characters as well as themes. OConnors stories are challenging because her characters, who initially seem radically different from people we know, turn out to be, by the end of each story, somehow familiar- somehow connected to us. (424) However, each story also depicts its own unique tell of spirituality and understanding. OConnors Revelation is a tale of a middle class women, Ruby Turpin, who is certain about her place in society, as well as the rest of the towns social standing.

She judges people instantly and reflects on what kind of person she would be if given a choice between two equally undignified options. A Good Man is Hard to Find tells the story of a family that prepares to go on vacation but before they reach their destination they take a detour prompted by the grandmother and after a car accident come in counter with a serial killer who has recently been released from jail. Both stories take place in the south and take the reader on a journey to a deeper emotional awareness, as well as beg empathy of the reader for both the protagonist as well as the antagonist.
