Character Analysis - Sammy in John Updike\'s A&P

Who is Sammy? In the short drool A&P, Sammy serves as the protagonist, main timber and narrator. The drool is told from his point of view, which I believe is very provoke because the narrative changes if this story is told from i of the other characters point of view. This story takes places in a wee cautious community with conservative views. Sammy is a 19 course of instruction old who works as a cashier at A&P marketplace in a handsome township. Sammy can be exposit in many ways. He is very opinionated and observant of his surroundings. From the beginning of the story Sammy is seen as somewhat immature.

Retail can be so boring and ordinary at metres that you cod to do something to help the time go by. He comments on everyone and everything. This serves as his entertainment to enamour through the day.\nIn the story he quickly analyzes th e girls as they come in the store. In fact, in the very inaugural sentence Sammy says in walks these terce girls in nothing but bathing suits (Updike 32). It is quite an oversight grabber. Sammy finds almost people in town are pursuit and do the same thing. However, he notices Queenie is different. He is almost enkindle by her sweet bountiful soft-looking can (Updike 33). Based on the way he describes the girls he seems to judge people base on appearances. He depicts everything from the caryopsis and patterns of their bathing suits to the different boundaries of their false topaz lines. Sammy describes the girls nicer in comparison to how he described the old doll and the checkout lane. He goes on to call Queenie a leader. She acts different, walks different, and dresses otherwise than others in town. Sammy described most people in town as sheep. They all talked and dolled up the same way. I speculate Sammy really likes this girl and hoped by quitting his job and standing up for her she would like him back. \nQ...
