    Hi, I am currently studying for the GCSE English Literature Unit 1 exam. I am studying the short stories anthology called Sunlight On the Grass. I have a questions about the final story in the anthology - Something Old, Something New

    Thanks in advance for any help

    1. Why are intertexual references to Bill Cosby & The Godfather used in the story?

    2. Why are the characters unnamed and known simply as the man and the woman?

    3. What is the significance of the woman encouraging the man to try exotic fruit?

    4. What is the significance of the robbery and the beggar?


    Many thanks
