Explanation: Southern gothic literature is a genre where the stories often focus on grotesque themes. While it may include supernatural elements, it mainly focuses on damaged, even delusional, characters. In the given excerpt from Flannery O'Connor's "The Life You Save May Be Your Own" we can see an example of the Southern gothic genre in the fact that one of the characters had "half an arm."

Southern gothic literature focuses on the supernatural elements alongside some grotesque characters, the unrealistic settings, and even at times irrational dark humor elements.
In the given passage about Mr. Shiftlet from "The Life You Save May Be Your Own", the author Flannery O'Connor used this feature to present the stranger who had come to the Craters' farm. Lucynell Crater's observation of Mr. Shiftlet, with the half-arm, links the story to the southern gothic form, presenting a picture of some unrealistic nature to that of the approaching stranger.
