read Good Country People, by Flannery O’Connor.
When Mrs Freeman uses Joy’s chosen name of Hulga, it upsets Hulga. Why? O’Connor tells us that “Joy-Hulga would scowl and redden as if her privacy had been intruded upon. She considered the name her personal affair.” Why choose a name if you don’t want anyone to use it?
2. What does Hulga’s reaction say about the relationship between Hulga and Mrs Freeman? Consider the scene where Mrs Freeman says she didn’t see Manly arrive but she did see him leave (page 9).
