What is the basis behind “Blonde”?

The life of Marilyn Monroe has been the subject of many films. So what distinguishes this film from others? It’s a film adaptation of one of the most ambitious books published in recent years.

Blonde, written by literary giant Joyce Carol Oates, was published in 2000. Being about 700 pages long and centered on Marilyn Monroe, the book was already quite ambitious. Oates, however, had a fresh perspective: she intended to write about Monroe’s life within the context of a fictional work.

Why does this matter? Numerous Monroe biographers disagree on a wide range of subject matters, for starters. Oates was able to avoid having to make sense of the numerous conflicting versions of Monroe’s life by writing as a work of fiction.

Another reason is that Oates has all the creative leeway she needs in the novel to portray a colossal character. According to the New Yorker, Oates “plays with, rearranges, and invents the minutiae of Monroe’s life in order to create a deeper lyrical and spiritual truth” in the novel.
