You can find analysis of this in the library literature databases.  To use them, follow the link below to a list of the available literature databases.  Here are tips for using some of the more useful databases:

EBSCO: Literary Reference Center: You can start with a default search of a good man is hard to find.  After the search has been completed, select Literary Criticism from the options on the left to limit the results to literary analysis.

EBSCO: eBooks: Search for "good man is hard to find" (include the quotes).  There is a book about Flannery O'Connor available.  Open its full-text, and then click the magnifying glass on the right.  Search for the title of the story.  This will show all the pages where it is mentioned in the eBook.

Gale: Literature Resources from Gale: Select the Works Search tab and search for good man is hard to find.  From the result list, select the 28 articles about the short story (not the collection).

GVRL eBooks: A default search for the story's title will retrieve some results.  At the top will be an overview and analysis from Short Stories for Students.  Most of the other results will be a broader analysis of Flannery O'Connor's work, but will still have sections that discuss this particular story.
