The Lame Shall Enter First by Flannery O ConnorThis is an extraordinary powerful complex fabulous story Even if I ve come to expect amazing stories unexpected angles turns of events and sensational characters I am still flabbergastedWhat a fantastic writer I would say that with Proust she is at the top of my preferences In this short story the major themes are religion good versus evil Satan Jesus atheism redemption punishment for sins handicap and its effects and Sheppard is the father of Norton and wants to help Rufus Johnson These are the major characters and all the other few are just extrasTo begin with Sheppard is unhappy with his son although that will change towards the end a bit too late unfortunately if I am correct in my guessingSomebody asked me for spoiler alerts I was unhappy to spoil it for someone and I must confess happy to find than anyone has read at least one reviewin the meantime I have collected a huge number of likes 4 or 5 anyway in the case of Flannery O Connor I am left guessing as to what happens at the end I can take a wild guess it may even seem obvious but there is Doubt in my mind And that makes for a great endingSheppard is a good man Or isn t he In spite of the fact that he tries to help others in a Flow kind of way he is an atheist and this could well be his damnation I sometimes think of myself as an atheist but I am learning that we all need spirituality a belief in transcendence something above ourselvesFlannery O Connor I understand was a very devout catholic henceforth the serious conflict in some stories between religious people and non believers However in The Lame Shall Enter First the lines are not clearly drawn Sheppard is an atheist but Rufus claims that he is religious but I am not convinced and so is SheppardThe title itself is a uote from the Bible and Rufus starts teaching the Bible to Norton with tragic conseuences maybe I am not sure of the tragedy and if Norton is to blame or indeed God if there is One who punished Sheppard for his blasphemyThe action takes place mostly around the house but to my perception this story is packed full with action There are police cars breaking ins and evidence hand cuffs we seem to be in Lie to Me waiting for Tim Roth to show upSheppard makes all the efforts to make Johnson at home in his house up to a point He buys a telescope and then a microscope He takes him to a special shop where he orders a special shoe for Johnson s foot He is the lame in the titleWe get the feeling that Rufus is compensating and acting horribly because of his handicap His life hasn t been good he has an I of 140 Einstein had 150 but he has to eat from the garbage binsThe story is like a thriller with tension and strange turns and twists in the plot and a dramatic endwhichever that would be because there is a uestion mark Hanging over the finale What a tremendous story this is Read and enjoy
