Transcript of Prisbe, M - red/innocence vs experience - pd 7

The color red often appears with the description or experience with characters in
Catcher in the Rye
They are usually people Holden find important.
"I'll tell you what kind of red hair he had...there was this fence that went all around the course--and he was sitting there, about a hundred and fifty yards behind me, watching me tee off. That's the kind of red hair he had (Salinger 38)."
Jane Gallagher
"She sort of wouldn't let me get to her mouth. Anyway, it was the closest we ever got to necking. After a while, she got up and went in and put on this red and white sweater she had, that knocked me out (Salinger 79)."
Red: the desire to protect innocence
Catcher in the Rye
innocen state she was when they were children
"Then all of a sudden, this tear plopped down on the checkerboard. On one of the red squares--boy, I can still see it. She just rubbed it into the board with her finger (Salinger 78)."
But you ought to see old Phoebe. She has this sort of red hair, a little bit like Allie's was, that's very short in the summertime. In the summertime, she sticks it behind her ears. She has nice, pretty little ears.... It's really nice though. (Salinger 67)."
need to preserve is associated with people Holden cares about
people in childhood or desire to remember them in it are really the reason why
"Then, all of a sudden, you'd never guess what I saw on the wall. Another "Fuck you." It was written with a red crayon or something, right under the glass part of the wall, under the stones (Salinger 204)."
"It's hopeless, anyway. If you had a million years to do it in, you couldn't rub out even half the "Fuck you" signs in the world. It's impossible (Salinger 202)."
WHY he values childhood and innocence
eventually learns he can't protect children from everything
