A & P eNotes Response Journal
Excerpt From this Document
- The title of the story refers to the setting, an A & P supermarket. How does the author establish in the first sentence that the story takes place in a grocery store? What is the narrator’s job at the store? Do you think you’re going to like him or not? Why?
- When the woman shopper “starts giving [the narrator] hell” because he charges her twice for a box of HiHo crackers, the narrator says, “She’d been watching cash registers forty years and probably never seen a mistake before.” Explain why his comment is a good example of verbal irony.
About this Document
An eNotes Response Journal is designed to encourage your students to read and write more effectively and with more pleasure. Each Response Journal includes a rich variety of writing prompts: some will take students directly into the text, while others will give students an opportunity to express their thoughts and feelings and to reflect on their own experiences.
A second purpose of the eNotes Response Journal is to facilitate instruction in ways that work for you in the classroom. The organization of the Response Journal makes it easy to use, and the content and construction of the writing prompts are designed to develop students’ knowledge and academic skills.
