Joyce Carol Oates And Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been

The Life of Joyce Carol Oates and Her Story Where Are You Going,

Where Have You Been

Joyce Carol Oates is no doubt one of the greatest authors of her time it is obvious that her writings endure even today. Upon reading her biography and descriptions of her works it is inferred that Oates is a bit strange in the way she chooses to write. For example, the author explains that:
There have been changes in Oates?s writing habits in more recent years. While her first novels were all written on a typewriter, first draft through, then revisions, then final draft, the more recent novels have been written in longhand. (Westcott 3: 120)
Some may not view this as strange but if it is considered how many stories Oates has written and the length of many of these I am sure it is easily understood some viewing her as strange. No matter her form of writing though she is still essential to American literature even today. Perhaps, one of her most notable works is the short story Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been
