Hi, I need help with essay on Sammy, in A&P by John Updike Conflict between Sammy and his boss. Then Sammy wanted to be seen as a hero to these girls, then failed. Finally Sammy regrets his decision to quit his job. Paper must be at least 500 words. Please, no plagiarized work!

The author used the setting of the grocery store and first person narration to describe the changes in the thinking and pattern of Sammy’s acts and justification of his behavior and choices he made and consequences he faced as a result.

In the story, Sammy makes a leap from adolescent, knowing life a little more than it was in the grocery store, into a man that is able to head towards the rough patch of life. The grocery store setting helps to shape his imagination by the opportunities that it gives Sammy to expand his imagination. In the grocery store, there are a lot of items. This is an advantage for the author to use his imagination to compare the girls with the items available. Moreover, the store exhibits a place where a number of persons visit and Sammy exhibits prowess in understanding all of them, for Sammy the customers are all too easy to understand. The same goes for his boss and Stoksie, a 22- year old colleague and a friend. In the beginning he behaves as a sexist and describes one of his female complaining customer as a person without a brain in his statement “You never know for sure how girls’ minds work (do you really think it’s a mind in there or just a little buzz like a bee in a glass jar?”(Updlike)

The entrance of girls suggests to him the true mystery of other minds. Sammy wonders what they are thinking and describes them in detail using his imagination as a consequence of available free time at the store. For example he describes one of the girls face as a cherry and&nbsp.For instance, “She had sort of okay hair that the sun and salt had bleached, done up in a bun that was unraveling, and a kind of prim face” (Updlike,par.4).The author uses first person narration as tool to convey his ideas in a more helpful manner because it is more personal and helps convey the ideas and justifies Sammy’s behavior.

The story also tells us about the typical way men think about women. Sammy’s changing point of view about women
