Walker Percy and the Atticus Finch Question

I’m not at all sure that Uncle Will suffered from a tragic flaw, indeed I’m firmly of the view that he didn’t. Still, on the whole an OK (ish) article (that over-plays the Catholic card). Best be advised that for an infinitely more finessed understanding of the topic one should read Uncle Will’s (Percy) most incredibly beautiful memoir of a changing world Lanterns on the Levee, one of the 20th Century’s most poignant and beautiful prose, motivated by living on a fault-line that I think we very much are going through at present, even though most are oblivious.
