Homework Help: English 9-Please recheck answer and provide some d

Posted by Rachel on Sunday, March 13, 2011 at 2:36pm.

I have a question about the short story "Son" by John Updike. I have research this and read it but find it very confusing-I have two answers totally eliminated and would just like some input-Thank you so much

Is "Son told in
a.order from the contemporary father and his memories and reflections
b.reverse chronological order, from past to present
c.fragments that are set in different time periods and all from contemporary son's point of view
d.segments, each told by a different character and all in the first person

I'm certain it is not "c" or "d"and I know it is the father starting out talking about his son and then reflects back however, its not in order as "A" would suggest. and it can't be "B" because it isn't in reverse order from past to present because it starts out with the son
Any help would be greatly appreciated.What's confusing is that Son I have to pick the right answer and then write a paragraph to support it by tomorrow.
Thank you
