Wild Nights! | Joyce Carol Oates
post image

Wild Nights is JC Oates' collection of stories on the final days of five American authors (Poe, Dickinson, Samuel Clemens, Henry James & Hemingway). Oates frequently explores the disparity between the public perception & the real life of the author (esp in the case of Clemens & Hemingway where they are performing the parts of Twain & Papa in public). There is also a great deal of ambiguity in each story. The first one, Poe Posthumous could (CONT)

vivastory be interpreted as a science experiment gone horribly wrong. One could also make a compelling argument that the entire story is imagined by Poe as he died from rabies. Then there is the very uncomfortable story about Twain. The collection has a fantastic preface by Oates, which is a sort of essay on the art of the short story. I loved this imaginative collection & agree with the NPR quote on the back, “The triumphant paradox here is that (CONT) (edited) 2w

Branwen Okay, Joyce Carol Oates is usually such a hit or miss with me - but your review really makes me want to check this one out! 1w
vivastory @Branwen I've only read her stories which I've had a lot of luck with. Her story The Doll-Master has stuck with me years after reading it. It's one of the creepiest I've read. I also really liked the anthology she edited American Gothic 1w

I love the concept of a bio that zeros in on an artist's favorite hobby. Something about focusing on something besides her writing made Emily Dickinson feel more like a real person instead of her standard brilliant poet role. The page layouts are gorgeous - McDowell discusses ED's relationship to gardening throughout her life, along with photos, illustrations, poems, and excerpts from letters. 🌺🌻🌼🌷🪻

monalyisha Wow, yeah. What a pretty example of book as visual art! 4w
TheBookHippie I just LOVE IT! I‘m so happy you did as well!!! 4w
Texreader How awesome!! Love this post too!! 3w

Emily Elizabeth Dickinson was an American poet. Little-known during her life, she has since been regarded as one of the most important figures in American poetry. Considered an eccentric by locals, she developed a penchant for white clothing and was known for her reluctance to greet guests or, later in life, even to leave her bedroom. Dickinson never married, and most of her friendships were based entirely upon correspondence.
