Dear Readers:

In this Circulating Critical Edition titled A Moral Conundrum you will find an
analysis of Tim O'Brien's article "How to Tell a True War Story and a Compare and
Contrast essay on George Orwell's narrative "Shooting an Elephant" and Junot Diaz's
short story "No Face." In addition to theses texts, you will also encounter examination of
"A Good Man Is Hard To Find," by Flannery O'Connor. Through the use of close reading
and analysis of "A Good Man Is Hard to Find," the co-authors published in this
Circulating Critical Edition compiled: a One-Line Analysis, Satire, and Creative
Response to "A Good Man Is Hard to Find." The accumulation of these texts examines
certain themes: right versus wrong, truth, the concept of masking oneself, and
manipulation. However, in the process of developing this Circulating Critical Edition,
there have been many changes to each of the texts that I will discuss in detail. The first
text is "No Truth to the Story," by Erin Donlon, which analyzes the idea of truth in the
story "How To Tell A True War Story," by Tim O'Brien." Erin Donlon also writes the
second and third texts. The second: a comparison of the stories "No Face," by Junot Diaz
and "Shooting An Elephant," by George Orwell, and the third: a textual analysis of "A
Good Man is Hard to Find," by Flannery O'Connor. The next three texts are also about
"A Good Man Is Hard To Find." The first is a one-line analysis by Lauren Allen. The
second is a satirical response by Damon Pryor. The last is a creative response by Eric
Flowers. My process for going through and editing these pieces was not to change the
authors words, just to edit the papers grammatically, and occasionally editing sentences
so that they would flow better. Thank you and I hope you enjoy my website.
