Je reconnais à l'auteur un très grand talent, un véritable style littéraire, mais je n'ai que rarement "accroché" à ses romans, en raison d'un goût viscéral chez Joyce Carol Oates pour le sordide, le glauque à la limite du malsain. Tout le monde n'est pas beau, ni gentil mais à ce point de desespérance, je cale.

Lack of Resolution to Various Themes 27 mars 2012
Par D_shrink - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Even though a real fan of this author and having written flattering reviews of her work in the past, this work leaves me in some wonderment [in keeping with the Quaker Theme used in parts of this work]. I also felt it was overly long and repetitive in numerous places, but my biggest concern was the lack of resolution of any type of meaningful ending. It is as though it were written during a bout of schizophrenia, where many things make sense to the originator of the thoughts but not to anyone else.

The heroine survivor-woman of our story is known during her adult years as M.R. [Meredith Ruth] Neukirchen of Carthage, NY in the Adirondack Mountains. She is adopted by a very loving Quaker couple, Agatha and Konrad Neukirchen and given the birthday of 9-21-61, which is also important to the story. She was abandoned by her birth mother Marit Kraeck a very psychotic woman of extremely humble background. Marit tries to kill the child by throwing her in a mudflat, where she is found by a mentally challenged man lead there by a big black bird known as THE KING OF THE CROWS for the rest of the story. As a child she was called either Jedina or Jewell [the discovery of how that is reconciled is part of the story so I won't spoil it]. She gets the not-so-kind nickname Mudwoman, as an adult, and was called Mudgirl, while a child, due to the method of her abandonment.

Another facet of this story is that you are not always sure when an event important to the story really happened or was merely a psychotic episode imagined by our heroine, which included but are not limited to several amorous encounters.

I normally love reading the frenetic, emphatic, and jittery writing style of this author, but found the lack of resolution to many parts of the story somewhat off putting leaving one dyspeptic in the end. About three quarters of the way through the book, the discussion got off course veering towards the morality and political correctness of conservatives versus liberals. It is like a teacher reviewing the work of an A student who occasionally turns in work of a somewhat lesser quality. This would equate to one of those times. I am sure her next work will be back to snuff.

Dark Even by JCO Standards 26 avril 2012
Par Sam Sattler - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Mudwoman is dark even by Joyce Carol Oates standards. Oates is well known for novels featuring female leads that do not sense the physical jeopardy they are in before it is almost too late to escape it. Suddenly, these women - as intelligent and accomplished as they may be - recognize that they have wandered into a situation that could cost them their lives. The threat usually comes from an evil or deranged man but, in the case of Mudwoman, all the damage is done by a little girl's own mother.

When she is three, Jedina Kraek's mother decides to murder her and her five-year-old sister. Jedina is shaved bald as part of her mother's religious delusions and tossed into a mud flat near the Black Snake River where her mother assumes that she will drown in the muck. Against all odds, the little girl is found by a mentally handicapped local trapper and taken into a foster family for several years. When the Neukirchens, a childless Quaker couple, adopt her, Jedina (who had mistakenly claimed her older sister's name, Jewel) becomes Meredith Ruth Neukirchen.

"Merry" does her best to live up to the Quaker standards of her parents, and becomes the model student, an overachiever who compensates for her insecurities by excelling at academics. Secretly, Meredith applies for, and wins, the scholarship to Cornell that she believes will be her ticket to a new life far from stifling Carthage, New York.

Mudwoman is told in chapters that alternate between Meredith's girlhood and her present life as the first female president of a prestigious Ivy League university. Now 41, and calling herself M.R. Neukirchen, Meredith lives alone in a spooky, "historic" house on campus allocated to the president and spends all of her waking hours on university business - much of it involving fundraisers at which she must impress potential donors with her administrative competence. Oates, herself a Princeton teacher since 1978, is very familiar with this world and she exposes its inner workings here in detail.

Because so much of what takes place in the present happens entirely inside M.R.'s head, the book becomes a contrast between a realistic presentation of her childhood and the more surrealistic presentation of her present day circumstances. What happens when M.R.'s childhood demons intrude upon her present life is often painful to watch. When cracks begin to appear in her public persona, expect to be horrified by M.R.'s mental collapse as the university board of directors tries to contain the damage and deal with the problems she creates for the school.

Mudwoman is frustrating at times because Oates, who is a master of this writing style, wants her readers to be (at least temporarily) as confused as M.R. herself about what is real and what happens only in her dreams. The good news is that patient readers will find that most, but not quite all, of the answers are revealed by the end of the book. Even better news is that they will have spent so much time inside M.R.'s head that they will likely know and understand her as well as they do any fictional character they have ever encountered.

Although it can be a difficult read at times, I highly recommend Mudwoman.

Mudwoman by Carol Joyce Oates 5 avril 2012
Par P. L. Briggs - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I am a great fan of Joyce Carol Oates and no wonder. I think she has won more writing awards than I have fingers and toes. Mudwoman was first Mudchild, so called because her insane mother put her in a quicksand-like mudflat to die. A sister was already unaccounted for. Mudchild was rescued and put first with a foster family and then adopted by a loving Quaker family. When Mudchild was rescued she gave the name of her sister and was called by that until she herself changed her name later in life. She did not feel totally comfortable with them but later in life had a loving relationship with her stepfather.

A mystery to me was what had happened to the sister. This was finally mentioned. She was dead, of course. I found what had happened; but I think I missed something or else this, too, was shrouded in mystery.

She achieved. Well educated, she became president of a university and called herself M. R., first name Meredith. She was haunted by dreams and nightmares of the past and it was at first impossible for the reader to distinguish between fact and the imagined. Eventually, these events would become clear. I enjoyed the mysticism and symbolism here. Meredith herself eventually became unnerved by - was it memories or imaginary happenings?

On the verge of breakdown, she left the university and returned to the home of her adopted father, the mother having died. He was very intuitive. Eventually he told her where her birth mother was. I will not spoil the meeting between Meredith and her mother by describing it.

Another reviewer said this book did not have a definitive ending, but I felt it did. I felt it had the only ending it could have.

Once again Joyce Carol Oates gave me a book I could savor, mull over and analyze the meanings of all the events and thoughts of the central character.

Disappointing 5 août 2012
Par Peggy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I found this book to be very difficult to read. It skipped back and forth too often and it was very confusing. I was never really sure if M.R. was actually living something, dreaming, or hallucinating. The writing left a lot to be desired with many awkward or fragmented sentences. It just did not flow easily. Even though I found the book hard to get through, I did finish it, only to be somewhat disappointed with the ending.

Kept waiting for something 12 septembre 2012
Par Joanne M. Watkins - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
While this story opened with an intensity that prompted me to keep reading, things just went downhill. I have read Joyce Carol Oates and enjoyed her writing which prompted me to read this. What an arduous task. Wouldn't let it get the better of me - just knew there must be something at the end to pull it all together. Wrong.
