"Alice Munro’s “Friend of My Youth,” part of a short story anthology of the same name, consists of an allegorical commentary, framed as a narrator reminiscing on the events of her life, on the shifts in ideals that occur as generations pass. Munro saturates her writing with situational irony, often showing rather than telling how each generation believes that it holds the most valid or correct set of ideals and concepts. The story suggests that, instead, humans are essentially very similar at a deep level, their attitudes and beliefs contingent only partially on their environment."
