Abstract
Cormac McCarthy is the author of ten acclaimed novels. All McCarthy’s books share a sense that humans are at best narrow, often insensate or crude and sometime evil. McCarthy adapted the southern gothic mode in his works that made his works unique. As one reads McCarthy’s description of his characters one finds humanity differs only in degree from the rest of the animal world. The present paper discusses the southern gothic style in Cormac McCarthy’s novels Outer Dark and The Orchard Keeper.
