Haunted Tales of the Grotesue Read & Download Î 104 review Haunted Tales of the Grotesue Years later Melissa is tormented by her memories of its malevolenceand the murder of Mary Lou In the novella The Model a sexual threat seems to underlie the interaction between young Sybil Blake and Mr Starr who asks her to be his model but the truth about her own identity and his shows that the danger is lurking in a different part of the heart The Accursed Inhabitants of the House of Bly a macabre reworking of Henry James's The Turn of the Screw resurrects the evil of Miss Jessel and uint who are up to their old tricks with the children Miles and Flora but with new perverse and brilliant revelations The tales in this collection plunge the reader into nightm. I was interested in reading something in the spirit of the season Halloween so I picked up this book of short stories which ranged from creepy to downright disgusting As an author Joyce Carol Oates shows an uncanny ability to come up with strikingly different situations within which she weaves remarkable tales With Oates you never know what you re going to get because each story is completely different than the one beforeHowever what is the same about each of the stories in this book is the underlying mood of confusion and panic Whether it was the story about a successful university president surprised to find the exact replica of her childhood dollhouse on a street in Lancaster County or the one about the dead governess and valet haunting the children they loved and cared for in life the reader never feels completely sure of the circumstances or clear about the story that is unfolding The teacher in me couldn t help but think as I was reading the book that it would be a great one with which to teach the skill of making inferences although it is most certainly not appropriate for kids of any ageA few of my favorite stories were The White Cat and The Model In The White Cat a man in his fifties develops an intense hatred for his much younger wife s white Persian cat He makes multiple attempts to kill the cat yet somehow the cat continues to haunt him In The Model a 17 year old runner is approached by an artist in the park He offers her a great deal of money to pose as his model for a picture During these modeling sessions the girl becomes convinced that this stranger is actually the father whom she has long believed to be dead But as the reader you re never uite convinced that this is trueThere are sixteen stories in this book but many of them were too distressing for me to consider enjoyable While I admire Oates writing abilities and these stories were definitely creepy I found of them upsetting than entertaining In the end the final story especially turned my stomach enough to turn me off completely

Haunted Tales of the Grotesue

Haunted Tales of the Grotesue Read & Download Î 104 review Haunted Tales of the Grotesue Novelist poet dramatist and author of many of the best American short stories of our time Joyce Carol Oates shows yet another aspect of her unbounded creativity in these tales of the grotesue Haunted a collection of sixteen tales that range from classic ghost stories to portrayals of chilling psychological terror raises the genre to the level of fine literature complex multi layered and gripping fiction that is very scary indeed In the title story Haunted the pubescent Melissa and her best friend the sexually precocious Mary Lou ignore no trespassing signs to explore forbidden houses But the deserted Minton farm is one place where they should not have gone and. Joyce Carol Oates Haunted is an excellent collection of stories that for the lack of a better word are scary However these are not scary in the sense that Edgar Allan Poe or HP Lovecraft are These tales are much like the plot of an episode of Twilight Zone with a twist at the end As other reviewers have stated her stories range from traditional scary stories that could to told on Halloween to creepy tales with psychological implications to horrific passages of violenceThe majority of the tales center around the relationship between a womangirl and an abusive man In most of the stories the man and woman are related to each other though sometimes it takes a while to figure out their relationship Though when reading these stories for the first time the plots and characters may seem harmless The terrifying elements lay just below the surface Unlike in other scary story collections Oates rarely shows the reader what is exactly to be feared Instead she describes and fear and panic surrounding the event and lets the reader infer This techniue makes the tales even grotesue and horrific because there is no defined conclusion and it is up to the reader s imaginationOates also uses a variety of techniues that have become familiar to her readers In one story she begins each sentence with the word because which makes the tale almost seem like a free verse poem Another story is segmented with each passage numbered as if the entire story is a list of some sortThough descriptions of the tales may sound interesting the majority of the stories are incredibly upsetting Instead of murderous hitchhikers or clawed murderers these are stories that burrow deep into the reader s psyche and wreck havoc These are not for readings around a campfire or for someone who wants chills on Halloween The kinds of chills that these stories give are far deeper and are not easily ignored wwwiamliteraryaddictedblogspotcom

Haunted Tales of the Grotesue Read & Download Î 104 review Haunted Tales of the Grotesue Are worlds where violence slips in unexpectedly where reality turns into a funhouse mirror and where American culture goes awry in shocking provocative ways Joyce Carol Oates is a master storyteller of the dark side She writes with skillfully controlled prose tightly woven plots and deep psychological insight that m her fictional horror worthy to set alongside the stories of Edgar Allan Poe and far above all the restHaunted The doll The bingo master The white cat The model Extenuating circumstances Don't you trust me The guilty party The premonition Phase change Poor Bibi Thanksgiving Blind The radio astronomer Accursed inhabitants of the House of Bly Martyrdo. The first two stories were really good particularly The Doll but it was all downhill from there with the exception of The White Cat a re imagining of Poe s The Black Cat If it weren t for the first two I would have given this book only one star Her endings are often weak and the stories just didn t do anything for me in fact they often pissed me off because they were so ridiculous After getting half way through the second to the last story a re imagining of A Turn of the Screw I gave up In that story she had this annoying habit of telling rather than showing and I was anxious to move on to something worth my time
