Everything That Rises Must Converge Overview

As the collection’s name, the phrase “everything that rises must converge” sets a depressing and hopeless tone for the rest of O’Connor’s tales. The name suggests that, as opposing forces rise, there will be a merge somewhere down the line. Because these forces are so strong, though, the merge will most likely be concussive and devastating. In these stories, the opposing forces are age, race, and class.
