In John Updike’s story “A&P” he places the reader within the average run of the mill grocery store viewing your daily shopping shenanigans. We are able to see every action through the eyes of the nineteen old cashier, Sammy, who is just trying to find his own identity in a town full of what he calls “sheep” (Updike 132). He strikes you as the typical teenager who feels as if he has the entire world figured out, but as you continue through the tale a different side began to reveal slowly but surely about him. Sammy’s initial actions strike the readers as judgmental yet reserved but as the reader progresses through the pages, we can witness the transition into his new bold persona. Sammy’s character proves to change from his inclusive domineer that was in the beginning into a courageous young man who looks at the world in a new vibrant perspective after breaking free of society’s norm in the end.

Carver is a minimalist writer, which means his sentences are devoid of elaborate details, explanations, or descriptive passages. His style enhances the story because even though he uses simple words, everything he says is significant, and there are never any words put to waste. The following quote is an example of the author’s minimalistic style: “...he stays by the window, remembering. They had laughed. They had leaned on each other and laughed until the tears had come...” This
In other words, The Jungle is too obvious to be art. Another reason The Jungle fails as an artistic work is because “Sinclair couldn’t invest his character with a certain human particularity.” The characters are too perfectly purposed. They are all written for a particular purpose and serve only that purpose. Therefore, although all symbols lead to an anti-capitalistic interpretation of The Jungle, it fails as an artistic work due to its flat characters and lack of
A & P is a short story by John Updike written in exquisite detail. It features classic plot elements, such as the setting (A & P grocery store) and the protagonist (Sammy.) It also contains a conflict, (the scantily clad girls entering the A & P) a goal of the protagonist’s, (to impress one of the girls and hopefully win her heart) a crisis, (the manager confronting the girls and Sammy defending them) and a climax (Sammy quitting his job.) These elements all tie the story together to create plot and makes the reader increasingly curious as to how the story ends. Sammy, our protagonist and narrator, is an A & P grocery store cashier.

Everything in the store was fine and casual until the girls walk in. "I bet you could set off dynamite in an A & P and the people would by and large keep reaching and checking oatmeal off their lists and muttering "Let me see, there was a third thing, began with A, asparagus, no, ah, yes, applesauce!" or whatever it is they do mutter. But there was no doubt, this jiggled them. A few house-slaves in pin curlers even looked around after pushing their carts past to make sure what they had seen was correct.
At night, do not assume that a train isn't coming. Look down the track in both ways to make sure none are coming and then you can cross if there are none. If the lights are flashing you MUST stop. If the lights are not working properly, look both ways and if you can see clearly a mile down each way and there are no trains, you may pass. Do not attempt to drive through, around, or under any crossing gate or barrier, it could
