  Resolved Question: Ex basketball player poem
Are there any changes in the structure action or feeling of the poem? Pearl Avenue runs past the high-school lot, Bends with the trolley tracks, and stops, cut off Before it has a chance to go two blocks, At Colonel McComsky Plaza. Berth’s Garage Is on the corner facing west, and there, Most days, you'll find Flick Webb, who helps Berth out. Flick stands tall among the idiot pumps— Five on a side, the old bubble-head style, Their rubber elbows hanging loose and low. One’s nostrils are two S’s, and his eyes An E and O. And one is squat, without A head at all—more of a football type. Once Flick played for the high-school team, the Wizards. He was good: in fact, the best. In ’46 He bucketed three hundred ninety points, A county record still. The ball loved Flick. I saw him rack up thirty-eight or forty In one home game. His hands were like wild birds. He never learned a trade, he just sells gas, Checks oil, and changes flats. Once in a while, As a gag, he dribbles an inner tube, But most of us remember anyway. His hands are fine and nervous on the lug wrench. It makes no difference to the lug wrench, though. Off work, he hangs around Mae’s Luncheonette. Grease-gray and kind of coiled, he plays pinball, Smokes those thin cigars, nurses lemon phosphates. Flick seldom says a word to Mae, just nods Beyond her face towards bright applauding tiers Of Necco wafers Nibs and juju beads.

  Resolved Question: How did john updike
for English i have to explain how john updike reflectid the realism period?. do you guys have any idea. REALISM 1855-1900 (Period of Civil War and Postwar period) Novels and short stories Objective narrator Does not tell reader how to interpret story Dialogue includes voices from around the country Social realism: aims to change a specific social problem Aesthetic realism: art that insists on detailing the world as one sees it Civil War brings demand for a "truer" type of literature that does not idealize people or places Writings of Twain, Bierce, Crane The Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (some say 1st modern novel) Regional works like: The Awakening. Ethan Frome, and My Antonia (some say modern)
