Provide a 4 pages analysis while answering the following question: In the literature book (Kennedy and Gioia), read the following pages: 1 : 31 58 : 85 120 : 123 127 : 137. Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide. An abstract is required. Even if, they are in swim suits, it is almost like the idea of public nudity in a commercial environment is what made the girls seem disgusting. John Updike explains in detail what a boy’s obsession can cause him to do. The author also does what each and every short story writer attempts to do, and that is illustrate the customers and setting with great detail, whereas providing the characters names, which subtlety illustrate their traits and lets the person who reads make guesses on Sammy’s motivations for his quitting. The author’s way of illustrating the A&P store also echoes the qualities of the town and the “sheep” like manners, which Sammy discusses in the narrative. Sammy compares the clients with sheep, which signifies that they live together, as well as do all things together (Kennedy and Gioia 2). Where one “sheep” goes, the others follow as they look the same. Sammy illustrates these individuals and how they reacted when they saw Queenie. He used words such as jerk, hop and hiccup to describe them (Kennedy and Gioia 2). The boy argued that one could set off dynamite in A & P and the citizens would by large keep checking oatmeal off their lists and mumbling “Let me see”, before applauding the act. There was no doubt that such acts overwhelmed the people of A&P. Even a few slaves in pin curlers looked around to ensure what they had seen were correct. This was after pushing their carts past the site. This explains their sheep like manners very well. Sammy is accused of quitting his job for purely immature reasons. Sammy, in reality, quits his job, not on a basis of ideals, but instead, as a means of pretension and trying to amaze the girls, especially Queenie, but his, as seen later in the story, motive go way deeper than that (Kennedy and Gioia 3). He was looking for a sense of individual gain and satisfaction. Through taking sides with the girls, Sammy briefly goes up in the social class ladder to meet their standards, as well as the standards of the upper-class. He was clearly near the bottom of the social class ladder, a position where he was very sad. His dead-end occupation at the A&P grocery store, where lower class people are the main customers, was not a place he considered that he belonged (Kennedy and Gioia 3). Sammy desired to be an associate of the household where the father, along with the other men, walked around in trench coats and bow ties plus the women put on trendy shoes, serving on their plates herring snacks on toothpicks off a huge glass plate as they all held drinks the different attractive colors with olives and sprigs of mint in them. Sammy knew that Queenie came from this type of background, one that was extremely diverse from his. When Queenie was being mistreated by Lengel, Sammy remembered of the place where he worked (grocery shop), a place where the people who run the A & P looked very crummy. Queenie’s family was in the social class, which Sammy envied so much and desired to become a part of (Kennedy and Gioia 3). Therefore, Sammy gave up his job to show to himself, perhaps to other people, that he belongs in this “place.” Giving up his job is his first step in reaching his objective (Kennedy and Gioia 4). He was clearly enchanted by the girls from the moment they entered A & P. Sammy was not attentive on the other two girls, but Queenie amazed him.
