JOHN ESPY Obituary

polly espy

The author basically teaches the reader, but instead uses Polly, the pretty yet unintelligent character, in the story to avoid making the audience think that his writing is some boring document or essay that teaches about fallacies. As the narrator showed us some fallacies throughout the story, he was outsmarted by Polly. In some ways, the writing style reminds me of Wodehouse, in that it fits the bizarre story and oddball characters to a tee. And there are other ways of presenting the narrator: to delay the revelation in the middle of the story as well as delay it until near the end. Shulman was the head writer. And of all the successful lawyers he has observed, the vast majority are married to beautiful, gracious, and intelligent women.

Yet as he wanted an intelligent wife, but Polly was not that intelligent he was going to use his logic and guide her. The character found Petey Bellows his friend laying on the bed with a really sad face. Naturally it follows that Polly was gracious and intelligent to him as to how she was using her manners in the table and how she was full of graces.

The narrator of it is Dobie Gillis. While Dobie wanted to marry Polly after graduation. I would like to commend the author for his admirable writing style making the story more realistic and dramatic even if he uses figures of speech and terms on logic and philosophy. However, unfortunately and sadly, Polly refused Dobie to become his girl-friend with those fallacies taught by him. We extend our deepest sympathies to Polly, Peter and Burwell, and the entire Espy family.

He had given Polly Espy a stereotypical character of a beautiful but dumb girl. I think, he already knows about Polly's interests- Big Men in the university so he decided to choose the raccoon coat instead of Polly at the first place because he already knew that time. There are most definitely elements of anti-women sentiments in the writing. To me, feelings are not compatible with logic. It can refer to an emotion of a strong attraction and personal attachment.
