Agenda item Bernice Bobs her Hair

The short story Bernice Bobs her hair, written by F. Scott Fitzgerald is really a universal truth about teen life. Even though times have changed since the jazz era, the secert lives that teenagers live are not that different; All girls secretly crave for the boys attention, thoughts of girls still constantly pervade the minds of strapping young men, and teens are still having premarital relations( it is referred to in the short story.) I think that Fitzgerald hit the hammer right on the head of the nail in his discriptions of the teen characters. He really did a good job on creating a character that objectived all of the teen sterotypes of his day, and ours. I must say that i really do agree with how he portrays society, for i feel that it is still operated in the same fashion. No matter how much society changes and how many barriers are broken, teen will always excude behavior similar to what is depicted in this book.

I agree with you! In my entry on the story, I commented about the competitiveness that still exists between young teenaged women even today. I thought the story was pretty true to life as well. ;c)
