A more general American foreign-policy allegory e.
Where have you going, where are you been, an allegory? And I am also going to discuss what it can be an allegory of. I thought it was a teenage story with a very surprising ending, although I saw that this story also had other dimensions.
One can see this story as a cautionary tale or a story about a girl maturing into womanhood. It can also be interpreted as a story of freedom, freedom of sexuality in her dreams.
I think that with these descriptions that Joyce Carol Oates want us the see that there is more too both characters than you first see.
Having established that it really is an allegory one has to find out what it is an allegory of. Someone has also claimed that it is anti-feminist and someone claims the opposite.
This title makes an allegory clearer, good vs. The title Death and the maiden makes the use of fairy tales clearer. I like fairy-tales and therefore I noticed that this story has a lot of references to them.
After we discussed the short-story in class I clearly saw an allegory and the fairy-tale references makes it more obvious as fairy-tales often have an underlying theme of good vs. So this is a story of good vs. I look at is as a christen allegory, more specified as the battle between the Devil and Eve in the Garden of Eden another battle between good and evil.
At first I thought that Arnold Friend is a nice name and sort of makes you believe that his is a good guy, A. And while you read the story and for each line understands that there is something threatening and scary about this friend, I also saw that his name could be seen in an other way, An old fiend.
In my thesaurus I find that fiend is a synonym for both demon and devil, and I guess the Devil is the oldest fiend of them all. It pointed out to the left, bent at the ankle. Back to the theme, the battle between good and evil.
This is clear in the story, the not all good, but innocent Connie who tries to hold back Arnold and he who is clearly up to no good. From the middle of the story Connie is trying to hold Arnold out of her house and trying to get him to leave, he is at that time manipulating and forcing himself into her house.
Maybe her Eden, and as this is an realistic allegory the house is no true paradise as Eden was and Connie is no virgin Mary, but are more complex that only good and perfect.
Maybe the ones in the Genesis are mostly known, the struggle between Eve and the Devil luring her to taste the apple. Here Eve gets knowledge and in some ways matures. Some also say that this is a story of a girl that matures in the ways of the world.
An other sign to Arnold Friend being a demon or the Devil is his superpowers. He knows everything about her family and friends; he even knows exactly what her mother does at a certain time.
When I first read the story I thought that he guessed, but if he really is the Devil he could know for real. Arnold also has a source of knowledge like the Devil does when he is trying to get Eve to eat of the tree of knowledge.
This story could be a general allegory of good vs. The Devil seduces and manipulates Eve to take the apple; Arnold Friend also has a powerful way of persuading Connie. He starts with sweet talking her and appeals to her vanity; he also tries to impress her and makes himself familiar to her.
Both by making himself seem young by dressing the way the young does and listening to the music they do. And as Eve Connie gives up and does what the old fiend tells her to do.
I see now the allegory in almost anywhere in the text.The first thing we learn about Connie (besides her name and her age) is that she has a: [ ] habit of craning her neck to look into mirrors or checking other people's faces to make sure her own was all right.
