  • Salinger's The Catcher In The Rye Holden
    581 words
    Holden's Misapprehension of Death in J.D. Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye Death is one of life's most mysterious occurrences. It is sometimes difficult to comprehend why an innocent young child has to die, and a murderer is released from prison and gets a second chance at life. There is no simple explanation for this. Though, perhaps the best, would be the theological perspective that God has a p rewritten destiny for every man and woman. In J.D. Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye Holden often ...

    QUESTIONS FOR THE CATCHER IN THE RYE CHAPTERS 13 & 14 1.

My family was the same way, and I suppose most families are. If they have nothing to hide, why do you suppose families act like that.? Sometimes famili...
  • Holden's Feelings And The People
    1,417 words
    Chapter 1: The first chapter of Catcher in the Rye, we discover the personality of, and learn about the main character, Holden Caulfield. The first impression I got of Holden was that he seemed quite rebellious, and didn't really care what people thought. We already begin to read that he has many extensive opinions of the world around him. Because he has sometimes such a different point of view on a certain topic, it is quite interesting to read.
