Salinger ↠ 2 Review Summary Ú THE CATCHER IN THE RYE (HH FIC PB) 102 H of the parents his roommate who scores with girls using sickly sweet affection Lazy in style full of slang and swear words it's a novel whose interest and appeal comes from its observations rather than its plot intrigues in conventional terms there is hardly any plot at all Salinger's style creates an effect of conversation it is as though Holde. I read the end of The Catcher in the Rye the other day and found myself wanting to take Holden Caulfield by the collar and shake him really really hard and shout at him to grow up I suppose I ve understood for some time now that The Catcher in the Rye a favorite of mine when I was sixteen was a favorite precisely because I was sixteen At sixteen I found Holden Caulfield s crisis profoundly moving I admired his searing indictment of society his acute understanding of human nature his extraordinary sensitivity I mean come on he had a nervous breakdown for God s sake he had to be sensitive At sixteen I wanted to marry Holden Caulfield At forty I want to spank him After all Holden s indictment of society boils down to the insight that everybody is a phony That s the kind of insight a sixteen year old considers deep A forty year old of the grown up variety recognizes Holden s insight as superficial and banal indulging in the cheapest kind of adolescent posturing It suggests a grasp of society and of human nature that s about as complex as an episode of Dawson s Creek Holden and his adolescent peers typically behave as though the fate they have suffered disillusionment and the end of innocence is uniue in human history He can t see beyond the spectacle of his own disillusionment and neither can J D Salinger for all his painful self consciousness Holden Caulfield is not really self aware He can t see that he himself is a phonyCompare Salinger s novel of arrested development for instance with a real bildungsroman Great Expectations Holden Caulfield is an adolescent reflecting on childhood and adolescence Pip Pirrip is an adult reflecting on childhood and adolescence Holden Caulfield has the tunnel vision of teendom and he depicts events with an immediacy and absorption in the experience that blocks out the broader context the larger view Pip Pirrip has the wonderful double vision of a sensitive adult recollecting the sensitive child he used to be he conveys at the same time the child s compelling perspective and the adult s thoughtful revision of events While Holden Caulfield litters his narrative with indignant exposes of phonies and frauds Pip Pirrip skillfully concentrates on the spurious coin of his own make that is without letting the child Pip and the adolescent Pip in on the joke he exposes himself as a phony Pip Pirrip grows up Holden Caulfield has a nervous breakdownI suppose the only reason I begrudge him his breakdown is that so many in our culture many unfortunately than just the legitimate adolescents among us seem fixated on Holden as a symbol of honesty and socially liberating rebellion We view nervous collapse and dysfunction as a badge of honor a sign to put it in Caulfieldian terms that we are discerning enough to see through all the crap Our celebration of overwrought disaffection reminds me of the last sentence of Joyce s Araby Gazing up into the darkness I saw myself as a creature driven and derided by vanity and my eyes burned with anguish and anger Here is the adolescent pose non pareil Eually self accusing and self aggrandizing it captures the adolescent at the precise moment when his own disillusionment becomes the object of his grandiose and self dramatizing vision That s the kind of crap that Holden Caulfield and J D Salinger cannot see through And it is often the kind of crap that we adults like to slosh around inThe Barney beating of several years ago is another symptom of our arrested adolescence our inability to ride the wave of disillusion into the relatively calm harbor of adulthood as though flailing around in the storm and raging at the wind were in themselves marks of distinction and a superior sensibility I remember a news story about a woman in a Barney costume being seriously injured when a rabid and probably drunken anti Barney fanatic attacked the big purple dinosaur at some public event Now I don t know the age of the Barney beater but the act itself is a supremely adolescent one in which the impulsive response to disillusionment is to lash out at those symbols of childhood which made the biggest dupes of us At the dawn of adolescence when Barney begins to appear cloying and false it seems natural to want to beat up on him as though it was Barney himself who pulled one over on us instead of our own poignant and necessary misapprehension of the nature of things I could see Holden Caulfield beating up on Barney at least rhetorically and I could see Holden Caulfield missing Barney as he misses all the phonies at the end of the book but I cannot see Holden Caulfield accepting the postlapsarian Barney on new terms as a figure who is meant for children and not for him For all his touching poses about wanting to be the catcher in the rye what Holden really wants is not to save children but to be a child again
