Joyce Carol Oates is one of the best known young writers in America today. Her most notable success has been as a fiction writer. Two of her novels have been National Book Award nominees, and her short stories have appeared frequently in national magazines, literary quarterlies, and anthologies. This volume, her first collection of poetry, will no doubt come as a surprise to many of her admirers. Her poems are prose poems reflecting an existentialist vision of life and the nature and deterioration of human relationships. At the heart of the collection is a series of "false confessions," projections of the imagination into other "false" personalities (although even the "falsity" is perhaps only illusory). In her poetry as in her fiction Miss Oates is deeply concerned with human emotions, with both the physical and metaphysical facts and with the ultimate mysteries of human emotions. Representing a distinctive new voice, Anonymous Sins and Other Poems is an exciting collection which will evoke a strong response from the discerning reader.
