THE TETRAMORPH : Flannery O’Connor’s Vision, or Ezekiel Revisited.
For centuries, generations of Christians have been taught the Word of God by means of bestiaries commented by clerks who went from town to town to tell about the virtues and vices of every animal of the creation crowned by the tetramorph, both in O.T. and in N.T. In the American South of the 1940s the preachers to be were mostly self-taught overgrown teenagers who wanted to create their own Church out of nothing. Twenty years of sufferings have passed between the black and white static tetramorph in Wise Blood and the brilliantly colored parade on Parker’s back, whose story was written on Flannery O’Connor’s deathbed, when, in one of her last letters, she also warned that vultures, meaning doctors, were waiting for her to breathe her last. To attain Parker’s beatitude means to be able to understand the meanings of the symbols which, as the tetramorphic grotesque piece of furniture shows, are to be deciphered in order to be made active. Just as animals are key to comprehending Enoch’s washstand, they are key to apprehending Flannery O’Connor’s works.
