Joyce Carol Oates is that rarity in American fiction, a writer who seems to grow with each new book, said Time

Joyce Carol Oates is that rarity in American fiction, a writer who seems to grow with each new book, said Time. She set out in new directions in the 1980s with an acclaimed series of bestselling novels that exploit the conventions of Gothic literature: Bellefleur (1980), A Bloodsmoor Romance (1982), and Mysteries of Winterthurn (1984). During the 1990s she resumed writing plays and turned out In Darkest America (1991), I Stand Before You Naked (1991), Gulf War (1992), The Secret Mirror (1992), The Perfectionist (1993), and The Truth-Teller (1993), which have been performed Off-Broadway and at regional theaters across the country.

I Stand Before You Naked book. A series of monologues that deals with women's issues. In standard Joyce Carol Oates style, they are all beautiful written but fairly depressing. Anyone who ever watched drama auditions or did a stint on their high school speech team will recognize one monologue from this play: The Orange. An anorexic teenager sits in a bathroom stall, planning to eat just a few slices of an orange. Her entire food consumption for the day.

Joyce Carol Oates, I Stand Before You Naked (Samuel French, 1991)

Joyce Carol Oates is, of course, best-known as a novelist, almost as well for her short stories. You'll find the occasional non-hardcore fan who's aware she writes criticism. But get to the level of the poetry or the drama, and the legions of Oprah zombies who joined the cult after the success of We Were the Mulvaneys will give you long blank stares. So be it.

I Stand Before You Naked is a play of sorts; it is better classed as a series of vignettes for the stage, tied (very, very loosely) together by the opening and closing scenes. If you've read a Joyce Carol Oates work previous to this, you're going to recognize the archetypes of the characters to be found here; Oates is not well-known for straying off in vastly different directions with the characters she examines. What makes each work fresh and immediate is that those characters always seem like they're new people suffering from the same ailments (which gives rise to a whole new analysis of Oates' work that is, obviously, well beyond the capacity of a one thousand word review to contain). As it has been so many times, so it is here. Oates gives us characters, puts them in situations, and then writes scenes that will mess with us. It's a formula, of course, but unlike such formula writers as Dame Barbara Cartland, Oates is never content to stick within the dead center; even formula has its boundaries, and Oates is intent on exploring them. I Stand Before You Naked is another entry that takes a few fine pokes. *** ½
