Joyce Carol Oates's "Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been?" As an Initiation Story.
Wilson-Jordan, Jacqueline
Eureka Studies in Teaching Short Fiction, v3 n2 p47-58 Spr 2003
Offers a working definition of the initiation story. Discusses the interesting ways that "Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been?" both fits and complicates the definition of the initiation model. Shows how the understanding of Oates's story as an initiation can offer students another point of view in the ongoing debate about the story's realism. (SG)
