The Poetry of Joyce Carol Oates

"Oates’s poetry ... forms a body of work on its own merits and does not need to be interpreted only as an adjunct to her novels and short stories, as critics have said."

Women Whose Lives Are Food, Men Whose Lives Are Money"A future assessment of the place of poetry in the Oates canon may well increase its importance; such a reevaluation has happened with other major writers whose poetry was overlooked as the early readership more quickly perceived the message in prose. Poetry’s compressed language releases its power more gradually, but intelligence and verbal brilliance combined with the 'talk style' rhythm that is not yet much understood should bring a wider audience to these poems."
