Problems in The Lifeguard by John UpdikeOrder Descriptionin an essay of 3-4 pages (quotation included), provide a focused analysis of what you think are the crucial issues of the story in both its content and its form. Be sure to write a clear Introduction with a carefully focused thesis, an organized sequence of body paragraphs, and a clear and concise conclusion. Avoid making an inventory of literary components at the expense of an analysis of how the story develops its characters, its situations, and its theme(s). Avoid merely re-telling the plot/action of the story; instead, make specific references to elements of plot and action to provide a context for your discussion of significant issues.
