I had forgotten how flavorful is the writing of Flannery O’connor, having first read her thirty years ago. Here, Hazel Motes is in search of his own brand of greatness in the existential struggle of the commoner, which leads to this, from Baudelaire:
“One should always be drunk.
That’s all that matters...
But with what?
With wine, with poetry, with virtue, as you choose.
But get drunk.”
