Must include a separate references page that is formatted according to APA style as outlined. I have additional rough draft on the thesis and direction the paper should go in. This rough draft is kind of all over the place so take from it, add to it somewhat. Also the Thesis statement is: Thesis Conflict within stories like “Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been” by Joyce Oates serves a purpose to better our understanding and help readers to connect and resolve their own internal and external conflict. Like many teenagers, Connie is one of the perfect examples of a girl who is on transit from childhood to adulthood. She is a beautiful young lady who lives in mid suburban America. Olesen, (1978) describes her as ordinary, pretty with blonde hair (Olesen, 1978). However, it also mentions that she has a lot of undesired teenage habits like, she is stubborn, vain, flirty, flighty, and has a self-centered way about her which makes it challenging to get along with her own mother. For instance Connie would glance into the mirror to check her self out and her mother would say to her “Stop gawking at yourself. Who are you? You think you’re so pretty?” (Oates & Dylan, 1996). It can also be analyzed that she has a deceitful character about her where she would lie to her mother about her daily activities, which gave her a different character when she was home unlike the one she exhibits when she is away from home. Connie consistently feels like her family picks on her and is always compared her to older sister June who has a good girl personality. For instance, Oates & Elaine, (1994) argue that her mother asks her “Why don’t you keep your room clean like your sister?”(Oates & Elaine, 1994). Her mother does not appreciate the way Connie grooms and thinks her elder sister does it much better. I feel conflict within stories like “Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been” by Joyce Oates serves a purpose to better our understanding and help readers to connect and resolve their own internal and external conflict. Conflitcs In this analysis I will aim at pointing out the different conflict that existed between Connie and her family members. How these conflicts will help us point out conflicts that we each go through in our daily lives. How we can use Connie as an example at resolving our own conflicts. Where are you going, where have you been centers around one teen struggles with herself which represents an individual versus self-conflict. This story shows how humans deal with personal conflict in different situations. According to Rubin, (1984), Connie loves herself and sees herself to be much better than other people. She spends a lot of time on perfecting her beauty and getting boys attention. She rarely spends time with her family and would rather spend it with friends, which I feel is most case with teenagers in this day and age. Connie clearly has a internal conflic
