Abstract: This dissertation will seek to study the interaction between the recognizable and the unrecognizable, which stems from a reflection on the balance between regionalism and universalism. While the former focuses on a specific area characterized by its people, culture and topography, the latter encapsulates the whole world without acknowledging the boundaries inherent to the concept of region. O'Connor was interested in the region of the soul, what lies deep into human consciousness, but nonetheless used the South as a setting and emphasized its importance via the omnipresence of its language and cultural aspects. This study will therefore analyze the region of the recognizable and the region of the unrecognizable in O'Connor's short stories compiled in Complete Stories which contains the pieces she wrote for the completion her master's degree (1947), A Good Man is Hard to Find (1955) and Everything that Rises Must Converge (1965).
