As For Me and My Town

Examines the depiction of setting and characterin the form of small town confinement and hypocrisy in Sinclair Ross’ As for Me and My Town.

This essay will argue the thesis that the depiction of confinement and hypocrisy in small town life in As for Me and My Town reflects as much the character of the narrator as an objective view of small town life in general. As will be seen, through this subtle way, the author both creates setting and character at the same time.
