  • Text Analysis Distant Education College, Jilin University In this text the narrator claims he never forgets a face. One day this unusual ability brought him a great deal of trouble. How did this occur? Ill tell you a strange thing about me I never forget a face. The only trouble is that usually Im quite unable to tell you the name of the person. Of course, this trouble with names has put me in difficulties from time to time. Ive annoyed people and lost good business more than once. But on the whole, I think I gain more than I lose by this strange memory of mine.Next

  • Text Analysis Distant Education College, Jilin University Quite often Ive gone up to a man who didnt know me from Adam. Ive said: I think weve met before, and Ive been able to give him some idea of where it was. I can always connect a face with a place, you see. Well, as I was saying, I can go up to this fellow and remind him of a big dinner or a football match or whatever it is that his face reminds me of, and probably within five minutes were talking about business. I can usually find out his name later on. My memory for faces helps me a lot in business.PreviousNext

  • Text Analysis Distant Education College, Jilin University You can guess that theres not a man, woman or child here in Bardfield that I dont know by sight. Ive lived in Bardfield ever since the war. I like the place; although its only forty minutes from London, theres a lot of country here. The village is almost a mile from the station, and thats rather troublesome. But quite a pleasant crowd of men travel up and down to the City most days, and I neednt tell you that I dont know the names of half of them, though we speak to each other cheerfully enough. My wife complains that I dont know the names of our neighbours in the next house, and thats true.PreviousNext

  • Text Analysis Distant Education College, Jilin University Well, on this particular evening Id been kept a bit late at the office, and it was difficult to get to the station in time to catch the train. There was quite a crowd in the train at first, but they gradually got out; and by the time we reached Ellingham thats two stations before mine there were only two of us left in the carriage. The other fellow wasnt one of the regular travellers, but I knew he was a Bardfield man. I knew it as soon as I saw him, of course. Id smiled at him when I saw him get into the carriage in London, and he had smiled back. But that didnt tell me his name.PreviousNext
