The Catcher in the Rye Book Description:

Anyone who has read J. D. Salinger's New Yorker stories - particularly A Perfect Day for Bananafish, Uncle Wiggily in Connecticut, The Laughing Man, and For Esme - With Love and Squalor, will not be surprised by the fact that his first novel is full of children. The hero-narrator of The Catcher in the Rye is an ancient child of sixteen, a native New Yorker named Holden Caulfield. Through circumstances that tend to preclude adult, secondhand description, he leaves his prep school in Pennsylvania and goes underground in New York City for three days. The boy himself is at once too simple and too complex for us to make any final comment about him or his story. Perhaps the safest thing we can say about Holden is that he was born in the world not just strongly attracted to beauty but, almost, hopelessly impaled on it. There are many voices in this novel: children's voices, adult voices, underground voices-but Holden's voice is the most eloquent of all. Transcending his own vernacular, yet remaining marvelously faithful to it, he issues a perfectly articulated cry of mixed pain and pleasure. However, like most lovers and clowns and poets of the higher orders, he keeps most of the pain to, and for, himself. The pleasure he gives away, or sets aside, with all his heart. It is there for the reader who can handle it to keep.

Holden s conflicts in J D Salinger s Catcher in the Rye Book Description:

Essay from the year 2000 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 2,0 (B), University of Münster (English Seminar Münster), course: American Teenage Culture of the 50s, language: English, abstract: There aren’t many heroes in contemporary literature who have aroused so much devotion, imitation or controversy as J.D. Salinger’s Holden Caulfield. Salinger's novel The Catcher in the Rye, which was banned in America after its first publication, has influenced teenagers and adolescents until today. The very first lines of Salinger’s novel The Catcher in the Rye apparently indicate that something has happened to Holden that perhaps most readers would not want to know about: "If you really want to hear about it...". So, what is The Catcher in the Rye actually about? It is the story of Holden Caulfield, a teenager growing up in New York, who has been expelled from school. In an attempt to deal with this situation, he decides to take a trip to New York, but this trip becomes a complete horror trip, during which he frequently suffers from unexplained depression, feelings of isolation and thoughts of suicide. Finally, his trip ends in a nervous breakdown. Told as a monologue, the book describes Holden's thoughts and activities of this threeday odyssey. Therefore the reader is forced to see social problems from Holden's point of view. Holden is confused about much of the world around him and he is disillusioned with life. One of the most significant features of Holden Caulfield’s character and personality is his relationship to other people. The way he feels and thinks about others as well as the way he treats them, reflects his difficulties with the world he lives in. Undoubtedly, there is a close link between Holden’s attitude towards social conventions and requirements since the people Holden is involved with represent a part of society. On the other hand, relationships always imply feelings, which enables the reader to get an insight into Holden’s emotional frame of mind. [...]
