Hannah Willard Read Log Entry #3 “Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been” Friday, August 25 th Joyce Carol Oates’ allegorical story “Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been” has many symbols throughout the story that have a deeper meaning. She uses a massive amount of symbolism and irony towards numerous objects through the course of the story. The symbolism she uses is what makes the story an allegory. According to Merriam-Webster , an allegory is defined as a story, poem, or picture that can be interpreted to reveal a hidden meaning, typically a moral or political one. The hidden messages throughout the story are all related to evil and malicious behavior with a focus on Arnold Friend as the devil. One of the examples of a symbol with a deeper meaning is, Arnold Friend, himself. There are various examples of underlying characteristics of Arnold that show evil and malice. The first example being his name, if you remove the “r’s” from Arnold Friend, it spells out An Old Fiend.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
