- Students will read and analyze a short story from the Southern Gothic genre entitled "The Life you Save May be Your Own" by Flannery O'Conner. They will continue to explore the ideas of human compassion and morality by examining the apparent lack of compassion in the characters of Mr. Shiftlet and the old woman, Lucynell Crater. Students will use close reading strategies to identify examples of indirect characterization that contribute to their analysis of these two central characters in the text.
