53 This comparison to Paul is especially relevant since O’Connor is sure to note Hawks as “the fake blind man,” while Hazel, like Paul, becomes the genuinely blind man. Therefore, readers are forced to make the blindprophet connection not with Hawks, but with Motes himself. Once Motes discovers Asa’s secret—that is, feigning blindness—he realizes that the street preacher has much more in common with the prophets of Baal than with Paul. ”54 Thus, the vision motif unfolds through O’Connor’s attention to Hazel’s own naivety (a social blindness) during his interactions with Hawks, the false-blind preacher.
As Hazel ages, his conception of Christianity remains stagnant. During his childhood, he attempts to completely repudiate his sense of guilt by filling his shoes “with stones and small rocks,” thinking “that ought to satisfy Him” (CW 36). Yet, once Hazel leaves for the army, he tries to adopt the atheistic sensibilities of his peers who tell him “nobody was interested in his goddam soul unless it was the priest” (CW 12). Much the way Hazel has avoided sin to avoid redemption, he now tries to mollify his inner turmoil by telling himself that he has no soul.
Either way, both for-profit prophets see religion as a means to exploit others. As prophets, both Shoats and Hawks are fairly simplistic characters in comparison to Motes, who represents an amalgamation of complex biblical allusions, yet one of the most obvious markers of a character’s role as false prophet in Wise Blood is that they all share one marker in common: they are all associated with swine. In biblical mythology, the pig serves as a compelling and loaded image, associated with a lack of cleanliness.
