English-Please Help?

John Updike's short story entitled "Son" covers four generations, correct-great grandfather, grandfather, father and son, correct? I dogpiled this and can't find anything on it. If anyone can direct me paragraph- by paragraph who is being spoken about, I'd appreciate it-there are nine paragraphs and I'm totally lost.

Thank you

  1. I looked online yesterday, but found only references to the book. There are no chapter-by-chapter summaries, if that's what you mean. This is apparently still under copyright, and therefore neither the story itself nor any summaries are available.

  2. http://scholar.google.com/scholar?hl=en&q=son+by+john+updike&btnG=Search&as_sdt=0,44&as_ylo=&as_vis=0

    Even in Google Scholar, there's precious little.
