    In results of writing an essay which included, " ...Modern science would still like to know what the secret ingredients were that the Egyptians used when they wrapped up dead people so that their faces would not rot for innumerable centuries...", Holden Caulfield, the main character in the book, failed Pencey Prep, one of a long series of private schools which he attended. He was proud of the fact that he failed every subject except for English. One would find the book The Catcher in the Rye extremely ironic. Salinger used irony to confuse situations. Holden would say one thing, but would do another. Fear adds to the irony of the story, which makes it interesting and enjoyable for the reader ...

    I swear to God Im crazy. I admit it. It is very easy to automatically assume that Holden Caulfield is crazy. Its even a logical assumption since Caulfield himself admits to being crazy twice throughout the course of the book. However, calling Holden Caulfield crazy is almost the same as calling the majority of the human race crazy also. Holden Caulfield is just an adolescent trying to prevent himself from turning into what he despises the most, a phony. Most of Caulfields actions and thoughts are the same as of many people, the difference being that Holden acts upon those thoughts and has them down in writing. Holden Caulfield is a teenager growing up in New York in the 1950s. He has been ex ...

    ... e is a contradiction with this aspect of Holdens personality. He doesnt accept the rules set before him by phony adults. He believes that rules are only for the strong, yet he makes rules for himself although he never keeps them. Im always setting myself rules about sex and I immediately break them. The final aspect of Holden Caulfields personality is his respect for others. He cant stand people who dont respect or listen to what others have to say. He also thinks it is important to listen to people and respect their privacy. This is shown when he is willing to stop in the middle of a sexual act at the request of the girl which is something that not a lot of teenagers would do. Holdens r ...

Shed feel pretty bad if something like that happened. She likes me a lot. I mean shes quite fond of me. Holden does not want kids to grow-up into the world that he sees as so horrible. He wants to keep children the way they are, and be the only adult to watch over them. Holden comments, Certain things should stay the way they are. You ought to be able to stick them in one of those cases and just leave them alone. I know thats impossible, but its too bad anyway.

  • Censorship And The Catcher In The Rye - 968 words
    Katie Johnson sent me the exact info about the censorship of "The Catcher in the Rye". She found it in "Banned Books: Suppressed on Social Grounds" by Dawn B. Sova. vol.2. New York: Facts on File, c.1998. 'The novel has long ignited disapproval, and it was the most frequently banned book in schools between 1966 and 1975. Even before that time, however, the work was a favorite target of sensors. In 1957, Australian Customs seized a shipment of the novels that had been presented as a gift to the government by the U.S. ambassador. The books were later released, but Customs had made its point that the book contained obscene language and actions that were not appropriate behavior for an adolescen ...

  • The Catcher In The Rye - 264 words
    The Catcher in the Rye is a story of an emotionally disturbed young sixteen year old boy named Holden Caulfield. At first, I expected something totally different from what I got. It tells of an upper-middle class boy his age encounters while on the way home from school. He is an average adolescent with an attitude and sarcasm that fits him. He is uncomfortable with his own weaknesses, and at times shows as much phoniness, meanness, and superficiality as anyone else in the book does. Holden finds himself getting kicked out of private school and on his way home. He meets up with many different people that in some way have an impact on his life. Holden is telling this story in first person, alt ...

  • 5 Paragragh Essay: The Catcher In The Rye - 589 words
    From the novel, The Catcher in the Rye, the youthful protagonist Holden Caufield, employs the word phony to describe the behavior of a number of characters including Mr. Spencer and Ossenburger, however it is not them who arephony, it is the young main character. First, Mr. Spencer, Holdens ex- history teacher, is not described as phony, but according to the adolescent, his choice of words are. Secondly, according to our main character, Ossenburger is not the generous philanthropist he portrays himself to be, but rather a greedy undertaker. Lastly, the protagonist could quite possibly be the authentic phony. All in all, the main characters use to describe many other characters in the book is ...

  • The Catcher In The Rye - 838 words
    Some may say that the main character of J.D. Salingers novel The Catcher in the Rye, Holden Caulfield, is merely the average teenager, although he seems to think about sex and women quite a lot for his age of sixteen. This point can be easily argued in many ways, one example being the time Holden called a perfect stranger, Faith Cavendish, to get together at an unruly time of night. Another example of the main characters perversion is when he hired a prostitute named Sunny, and never actually accomplished anything. One last example could be Caulfields overall impression and cockiness when it comes to sex and women. In conclusion Holden Caulfield is engrossed in sexual thought. The protagonis ...

  • The Catcher In The Rye - The Etymology And Symbolism Of Characters' Names - 1,889 words
    Catcher in the Ryes pallid cover, adorned only with seven multicolored bands in its upper-left corner, is not what one would call eye-catching. Its reverse side lacks criticisms or reviews of any sort; in fact, it is bare of anything except a copyright date. Human beings are advised not to judge books by their covers, rather that they should look further than the obvious and try to apprehend the implied meaning. The world has peered past Catcher in the Ryes cover, cracked its pure, uniform shell of cardboard and discovered the novel of a decade, a story that has now made the name Holden Caulfield synonymous with cynical adolescent. Within the novel, however, there are more books into which w ...

  • The Catcher In The Rye - 1,960 words
    In 1964, J.D. Salinger composed a novel titled The Catcher in the Rye that became quite controversial and was banned from several schools because of inappropriate content. The story is pretty dramatic, but it has many comical incidents. The book is trying to project the idea that you can run from your problems as much as you want; however it is inevitable that you face them. You cant run forever! If this were a scary movie, the evil laughter would start now. Our main character Holden Caulfield at first appears to be having a conflict with society, but, upon closer examination, we see he is truly only at war with himself. Our story starts with Holden being kicked out of yet another school, th ...

  • The Catcher In The Rye - 1,153 words
    The Catcher in the Rye By Christine Cameron Hypothesis: How does the writer create a believable main character in Holden? The Catcher in the Rye by J.D Salinger was first published in America and Britain in 1951 but the British version had some minor changes. For example, certain swear words and slang words were removed. It was also banned from schools. This made the book more appealing to me because I wanted to see what all the controversy was about. On reading the book, I found it interesting how the writer managed to create a believable main character in Holden. This is done in a number of different ways using different techniques, all of which fascinated me. From the start of the novel, ...

  • Moral Beliefs In The Catcher In The Rye - 694 words
    Moral Beliefs are lessons about the right or wrong behaviour that is shown in a fable or event. Everyone has moral beliefs; it is hard to name them all or to even name any at all. However, situations in society help reveal and confront ones moral beliefs. Like Holden Caufield, in The Catcher in the Rye, conflicts and situations in society, forced him to confront his moral beliefs. The fight with Stratlater and Maurice, the confrontation of Mr. Antonlini and the many visits to the museum all were associated with Holdens moral beliefs. Holden is a critic in society; he believes that the major weakness in society is the phoniness. He thinks everyone he knows or meets are phonies with the except ...

  • Fall From Innocence In The Catcher In The Rye - 887 words
    In J.D. Salinger's , Catcher in the Rye, Holden Caulfield goes through a fall from his innocence throughout his journey to his safe haven, home. One example of when Holden fell from his own innocence is when he is in the room with Phoebe and he can't name anything he likes. Holden reacts to this question by saying, "Boy, she was depressing me"(Salinger 169). The only three things he can name that he liked were Allie, James Castle, and sitting there chewing the fat with Phoebe. The reason this is a time when Holden falls is because he gets really depressed when he can barely think of anything he liked. The reason I think Holden gets so depressed is because two of the people he names are dead. ...

  • The Catcher In The Rye Critical Analysis Essay - 641 words
    In The Catcher in the Rye, J.D. Salinger used symbolism throughout the novel. Three major symbols were the ducks, the Museum of Natural History, and Jane Gallagher. They all represent Holden in a way, and Salinger uses these symbols very well. While Holden is wandering around New York City, he asks many people about what happens to the ducks in the pond when it freezes. I think this really symbolizes Holden. He isnt really wondering about the ducks, he is wondering about himself. He wants to know what will happen to him when the weather gets really cold. He wants to know if he will have to go home, because he is really afraid to. This relates to the theme of going home, which is a recurring ...

  • Use Of Symbolism In The Catcher In The Rye And The Great Gatsby - 791 words
    There are many writers like James Joyce, Patrick Kananach and Thomas Moore who use symbolism to convey and support indirect meaning in their writings. J.D. Salinger and F. Scott Fitzgerald both use symbolism in similar ways. In both "The Catcher In The Rye" and "The Great Gatsby", the authors used symbolism to convey emotions and reality. In "The Catcher In The Rye", J.D. Salinger uses Holden's red hunting cap, the exhibits at the Museum of Natural History and "kings in the back row" as symbols whose meanings help tell the story. Holden's red hunting hat stands for Holden's disapproval of adult society and phonies. Although, Holden and his hat are out of place in New York, he loves this hat ...
