The Regional Writer - Flannery O'Connor

This quote was added by pooopoooooolos
Southern identity is not really connected with mocking-birds and beaten biscuits and white columns any more than it is with hookworm and bare feet and muddy clay roads. Nor is it necessarily shown forth in the antics of our politicians, for the development of power obeys strange laws of its own. An identity is not to be found on the surface; it is not accessible to poll-takers; it is not something that can become a cliche. It is not made from the mean average or the typical, but from the hidden.
