This adds to the story because he knows it was not his fault, but more his wife’s, still he will still hold himself partly responsible for the rest of his life. Wallace uses ideas that are, out of the box, and most people would seem to never think of, to add a twist to the story. Like in this story, the diaper that neither the mother nor father thinks about removing, because they don’t realize it’s still burning the child. Wallace uses great detail in describing certain aspects of the situation in the story.

Updike is able to communicate such in the final two lines of the fourth stanza, saying “His hands are and fine and nervous on the lug wrench./ It makes no difference to the lug wrench though”. The first of the two lines suggest that Flicks hands are tempered for something requiring more dexterity, like basketball.

In the poem, Bottoms compares hitting the baseball to dropping it “like a seed”.

In order to better understand the decisions made by Sammy in the story A&P written by John Updike, a highly descriptive form of writing was used. The prolific use of imagery throughout the entire reading was a major assist in the understanding of the characters, and why they did what they did. Most individuals who work at a grocery store don’t live the most exciting life. This was no different for Sammy who seemingly passed his time “people-watching.”
