Catcher In The Rye

Catcher In The Rye

The beauty of Catcher in the Rye lies not in the plot nor in the technique the author, J.D. Salinger, uses to tell his story, but in the depth of the character of Holden Caulfield. Any Grade 10 English class could spend ages just analyzing the complexity of this 17-year-old boy. Most will describe him as an insecure and troubled (possibly insane) teenager with mental and emotional issues that need to be worked out. I think these flaws of his just add to the intrigue of his personality. Is Holden not just an average teenager with flaws possibly exaggerated for a simple kick for the story
Holden, in my opinion, is an amazing character. He is a rebel at heart with the gift of a sense of humor (satirical or not). He picks up easily on the flaws of humans in general, never mind that he has fatal flaws of his own. He is a free-spirited, non-conformist bohemian who questions authority and avoids the mainstream. Wouldn?t the world be a little better if we were each a little more like Holden Or at least, if we were more accepting towards the controversial likes of his
