ABSTRACT
An essay is presented on the literary and historical recognition deserved by literary character Ruby Wickers of the novel "Wise Blond" and short story "A Stroke of Good Fortune," by Flannery O'Connor. It discusses O'Connor's culturally imperative novel on women characters living in the U.S. during 1950s, using the character of Ruby Wickers. It says that O'Connor's deletion and alteration of female characters shows her support to the assumed gender-biased literature culture.
