Everything That Rises Must Converge

by Flannery O'Connor

Protagonist

Character Role Analysis

Julian

Just because Julian is the protagonist, doesn't necessarily mean that he is a good guy. But he does have a specific view on the world, and he fiercely sticks to it. In Julian's case, he's obsessed with teaching his mom a lesson, and, like a true preacher, tries to lead her down the righteous path, but with some not-so-righteous methods.
