I’m working on a literature question and need support to help me study.

Class, after reading “Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been?” please review “Theories for Joyce Carol Oates” which presents various ways to interpret the story. Some readers may subscribe to one theory while others may feel that the story addresses more than one interpretation (i.e. Arnold Friend as serial killer/kidnapper with “demonic” or otherworldly powers). In a brief paragraph or two, present how you feel the story can be interpreted and provide evidence from the narrative that could support this interpretation.

Remember that you can also watch a short film/video based on this story under Week 3 Course Content.
