“The displaced person”

English

A friend and I were discussing the state of the world and literature’s relevance to it, when my friend brought up Flannery O’Connor. He said, “if you were to take all of O’Connor’s stories, and compare them side by side, you would find that the constant recurring theme is that of ‘The Displaced Person.’”
