“The Lady” in Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s short story “The Yellow Wallpaper” and “The Misfit” in Flannery O’Connor’s short story “A Good Man is Hard to Find” have certain similarities and functions within their stories, adding to the characterization, narration and the notion of “unsecured salvation.” This is a self-made terms that explains the idea that the characters in any story have a certain destiny- perhaps salvation- that is beyond the plot points of the story as well as the character’s intellectual capacities themselves. “The Lady” in Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s short story “The Yellow Wallpaper” and “The Misfit” in Flannery...
