Gender Transgression as Social Criticism 6. Conclusion Picture on the cover page: www. Introduction This paper is going to examine how the southern-born writer Carson McCullers creates the lonely picture of an individual living in hopeless spiritual isolation in a southern town.

It will be discussed how this image had to give way to the new reality of the South by the time of the s. It had turned into an interchangeable urbanized society which excluded the individual which did not correspond to southern norms. An isolation which is deeply rooted within a person who does not fit into the narrow-minded and prefabricated picture of the stereotypical southern society.

The South 2. Thus, the established picture denoted a clash between ideal and reality; a belief in certain values that could neither be found in the present nor in the past. They rather functioned as a symbol for an old-fashioned, no longer existing domestic paradise in an increasingly progressive America.

Her ancestry has determined her work, which is very emotional and brimming with the inner conflicts of the sensitive writer. All of them were deeply concerned with traditional southern values in an increasingly degenerated and immoral environment, which renders the deviant individual outsider to society.

By saying this, McCullers criticizes the concept of modern society, in which all individuals — the writer as much as the reader — are trapped in isolation.

Unable to free themselves to strive for happiness and fulfillment, their spiritual imprisonment prevents them from escaping the myth of the past.
