In her short story "Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been? ", Joyce Carol Oates utilizes a variety of literary devices to strengthen the story in its entirety. This short story is essentially about a 16-year-old girl named Connie and the conflict between her desire to be mature and her desire to remain an adolescent. Throughout the story, the audience sees this conflict through her words in addition to through her behavior. The audience is also introduced to Arnold Friend, a rather peculiar man, who essentially kidnaps her.
Everywhere she goes, including her front lawn, she dresses and acts in ways expected of teenage girls. Now it can be argued that being able to act like a teenage girl is a freedom, but in this story, it almost seems as if Connie has to act like a teenage girl. For example, when Connie is in the drive-in restaurant and decides to leave with Eddie, but is unsure of leaving her friend alone, Eddie assures her that her friend will not be left alone for long (insinuating another male will pick her up), and when Connie and Eddie leave together, Connie looks around to make sure that others are aware of her triumph, “…the boy said that she wouldn’t be alone for long. So they went out to his car, and on the way Connie couldn’t help but let her eyes wander over the windshields and faces all around her…” (2). What Oates might be trying to sound out by Eddie being confident that Connie’s friend will find a guy shortly after Eddie found her, is that girls live a life full of expectations.

Her innate sensitivity allowed her to be a non-conformist and see opportunities that allowed her to grow and love herself. In her article, “Me the overly sensitive child” Lamott feels that although she did not always see the advantages that her thin skin provided her, she was eventually able to use it to her advantage and gain “wisdom and self-knowledge” because of it (Web). My point in this paragraph is that Lamott used her innate sensitivity to experience everything that life had to offer and grew as a person because of it. I would back up her opportunity seeking with her participation in the women’s rights movement which allowed her to develop standards about how she would allow herself to be treated, her success in the corporate world, her openness to friendship, her time in the wilderness, and in her willingness to
