article description
Flannery O'Connor's second novel, The Violent Bear It Away, revolves around a young boy named Tarwater. Throughout the novel, Tarwater struggles to choose between the old domineering ways of his backwoods, ignorant, great-uncle Mason Tarwater, and the more modern ideology of his city dwelling, well educated, uncle George Rayber.
