  • Sammy's Future
    295 words
    I feel that one of the major themes in A&P is that of choices and consequences. In the story Sammy acted in the heat of the moment, not really thinking things through. He stood up for the way the girls were being treated, and while doing that he quite his job. Sammy is still very young and has a lot to learn, but he stuck to his guns. He may have quite his job without a real good reason, but he showed he was a man. When I say that, I mean he didn't try to weasel his way out of what he said. So t...

  • Flower Off A Poor Girl
    689 words
    THE FLOWER GIRL Strong dialect indicates she is not originally from London, possibly not educated at all. Easy going girl, very young. Doesn't seem to think about consequences of her words or actions- she calls Freddy "deah", and "Freddy". (her appearance is described to the minutest detail, leaving hardly anything for the imagination of the reader) She seems quick, intelligent, and shrewd enough to look after her own interest / gain. This we can see by the way she jumps at the slightest chance ...

Who urges me to keep my head? Who can this paragon of virtue be? I'll tell you frankly folks - It's me". Good afternoon Mr. Toastmaster, ladies and gentlemen or rather fellow toastmasters... allow me to introduce to you my best friend, who laughs when I laugh... cries when I cry and stands by like the Rock of Gibra...
