J. D. Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye

Since its publication in 1951, The Catcher in the Rye has been a cultural phenomenon, not only as an assigned text for English courses, but as a touchstone for generations of alienated youth. As the focus of recent major films and a successful off-Broadway play attest, J.D. Salinger and his novel continue to fascinate an American reading public. But who was J.D. Salinger, and how did he come to write a novel whose impact continues to resonate with millions of readers? In J.D. Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye: A Cultural History, Josef Benson examines the legacy of an elusive author and his work. After exploring how the novel reflected Salinger's tortured psyche, the study discusses how the book made an impact on multiple generations of readers-from 1960s counter-culture youth and followers of the Black Power movement of the 1970s to the disenfranchised teens of the Reagan era and the celebrity-fixated masses of the present day. Benson also unravels the mystery behind Salinger's reclusiveness, the effects the novel had on the reading public who adored it, and why three American assassins cited the novel as an inspiration. The author also considers why this work of fiction has been among the most widely taught-and most frequently banned-books of all time. By looking at the novel as both an artifact of the 1950s as well as a living testament to the turmoil of teenage angst, J.D. Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye provides a riveting discussion of one of the most enigmatic novels and authors of all time.

Intermediate Examination Paper from the year 2010 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 2,3, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (Department of English Linguistics), language: English, abstract: The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger has been put on school syllabus in hundreds of schools not only in America, but all over the world. The glorification of drinking, smoking, lying, promiscuity and immorality have not least been the reasons for this book heading the list of banned books in a number of American schools (Frangedis 72). Still adolescents all over the world could identify with the rebellious teenager Holden Caulfield, to the worries of their parents. Helen Frangedis tries to ease those worries, arguing that the teaching of morals is in fact her justification for introducing the book to her students, since Salinger's purpose was actually morally indeed (Frangedis 72). But how does Salinger point to what in his opinion is morally right? By presenting a protagonist that opposes all the wrong values. Hol-den Caulfield finds himself irrevocably growing towards a life that does not appeal to him at all: The life of an adult. With his sixteen years, he cannot imagine adapting to the society he sees everyday; a society characterized by phoniness, superficiality and wrong values. The on-ly solution he sees thus is to escape; to flee; into an imaginary world. The following paper is going to have a close look at three essential questions that have to be posed in this context: What is the initial situation that dissatisfies Holden so much, that he wants to flee, and where to? In which ways does he flee? And, most important, what is the deeper psychological reason for his flight? By answering these questions it will be proved that Holden Caulfield flees adulthood because of his neurotic association of maturation and death. Therefore, his real world, as well as the imaginary world he flees to, will be l

Seminar paper from the year 2011 in the subject English - Literature, Works, printed single-sided, grade: 1,0, University of Frankfurt (Main) (Amerikanistik), course: 20th Century Adoles/Scenes, language: English, abstract: The term 'adolescence' describes the phase of life between late childhood and adulthood. It contains not only the physical maturation but particularly the psychological and mental development from a child to an autonomous, responsible adult. Also literature has ever and anon created adolescent protagonists who have to deal with typical problems of coming of age. A prime example for such a novel of initiation is 'The Catcher in the Rye'. This novel nearly fulfils all aspects a novel of initiation has to deal with. Although 'The Catcher in the Rye' was published sixty years ago, it still finds general approval to people all over the world. Another very successful novel of initiation is DBC Pierre¿s 'Vernon God Little' which was written in 2003 and won the Man Booker Prize in the same year. The Daily Mail described the 15-year old protagonist Vernon Gregory Little as 'one of the most engaging narrators since Catcher in the Rye¿s Holden Caulfield'1 and Sam Sifton from the New York Times says that Vernon Gregory Little is a 'Holden Caulfield on Ritalin'2. There is no doubt that these two novels have considerable similarities: In both novels, the main character is a male adolescent who tells his story as a first person narrator. Both stories have their sets in the United States and both deal with issues concerning adolescence. I want to research which further similarities these two books have, in particular concerning adolescence. Therefore I am going to take a deeper look into typical issues these two adolescents have to deal with. First of all, I am going to give a short overview about the plot to the reader so the reader understands further issues of my work. Then, I will examine typical signs for adolescence like external and internal conflicts and language use of the protagonists of 'Vernon God Little' and 'The Catcher in the Rye' as well as the historical context of these two books. I am going to examine all these aspects in order to find out how the two novels explore the problems associated with adolescence and the narrators¿ messages regarding society.

This second edition of Peter G. Beidler's Readers Companion builds on the success of the first edition. It will be an indispensable guide for teachers, students, and general readers who want fully to appreciate Salinger's perennial bestseller. Now six decades old, The Catcher in the Rye contains references to people, places, books, movies, and historical events that will puzzle many twenty-first century readers. This edition includes a new section on reactions to Salinger's death in January, 2010. Beidler provides some 250 explanations to help readers make sense of the culture through which Holden Caulfield stumbles as he comes of age. He provides a map showing the various stops in Holden's Manhattan odyssey. Of particular interest to readers whose native language is not English is his glossary of more than a hundred terms, phrases, and slang expressions. In his introductory essay, 'Catching The Catcher in the Rye,' Beidler discusses such topics as the three-day time line for the novel, the way the novel grew out of two earlier-published short stories, the extent to which the novel is autobiographical, what Holden looks like, and the reasons for the enduring appeal of the novel. The many photographs in the Reader's Companion give fascinating glimpses into the world that Holden has made famous. Beidler also provides discussion of some of the issues that have engaged scholars down through the years: the meaning of Holden's red hunting hat, whether Holden writes his novel in an insane asylum, Mr. Antolini's troubling actions, and Holden's close relationship with his sister and his two brothers.
