Kim 1 Joo Han Kim English 2 (Rough Draft #1) Professor Schamp Date May/4/2011 The Implicated Meaning of Characters in a story of “A&P” Characters are the most essential part in a short story. All of the actions, ideas, and words of characters in a story reflect the author’s thought and their human nature as well as the theme, and plot. Characters are appeared in different plot of story which depends on author’s approach of choice. In a literary work such as short film and short story, usually apply an approach of plot- centered in which characters’ role are occasionally used just as agents of the plot because the characters’ role in the literary work are used just to the extent which the characters are simple elements of whole plot, their thought and Immanuel personality are not grown up. In contrast to the above the approach, John Updike’s plot-centered story of “A&P” in which the characters’ role are extremely essential. Updike uses an approach of character-centered in “A&P”, in which characters reflect author’s thought and the character would be fully grown up toward being mutual at the end of the story. However, the appeared character’s actions and words in the story could not tell the author’s idea. So, readers should analyze the implicated meaning of characters. In the story of “A&P”, the first narrator of character Sammy implies a new generation which seeks changes, Lengel implies an old generation that is possessed in original value seeks only its traditional value, and the three girl’s symbolic meaning which is liberty are not subordinate either a standard value or a repression of society.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
