In this third volume of poetry, Joyce Carol Oates offers her readers another experience of her uniquely personal -- and therefore universal -- vision. The poems vary in subject from nightmares and city graveyards to "domestic miracles" and the family, but each of them is controlled by a sense of human struggle. But Angel Fire is not merely a collection of poems. In terms of emotional and then mystical experience, it is a kind of lyric novella, in which poems are arranged to dramatize the evolution of a mind. Thus, the "struggle" gives way to the vision that there is no real struggle, only confused perception, and the concluding poems become revelations.
