Abstract

The article focuses on Flannery O'Connor, an American author, who justified her graphic artistry by explaining visual methaphor with an aural one that turns speaking-loud speaking-into a figure of speech. It says that O'Connor's near-blindness images and mild-to-moderate deafness embodies her concern with information theorists obstacle which is describe as noise. It mentions that Michel Serres has reformulated the interference which cossrupts communication by using the term "parasite."
