Real Life Connector
Mark Chapman had a copy of "The Catcher in the Rye" when he assassinated John Lennon.
He had a strange interest in extremely younger women. At the age of 56, he had a crush on Brooke Shields, who was 15 at the time. At the age of 53, he dated 18-year-old Joyce Maynard. At the age of 30 he dated an 18-year-old.
Salinger was more interested in acting than in writing. He would even sign the names of all the characters he played as in school plays in his yearbook.
Salinger married Claire Douglass in 1955, who he met on a trip to NYC. She was 20-years-old while he was 36. He made her cut off all contact with her friends and family. He told her to not disturb him unless the house is burning down. They later divorced in 1966.
He served in the army and said his experience of war made his writing more mature.
Pg 33, Paragraph 5
"He was finished combing his goddam gorgeous hair." This gives the reader the impression that Holden is jealous of Stradlater's hair by using the word "goddam".
Pg 39, Paragraph 1
"I slept in the garage the night he died, and I broke all the goddam windows with my fist just for the hell of it..." The way Holden reacts when his brother passes away, shows how frustrated and devastated he was. The loss of his brother may also be the reason he is so ignorant and careless about life.
Pg 121,
"The best thing, though, in that museum was that everything always stayed right where it was. Nobody'd move...Nobody'd be different. The only thing that would be different would be you." After visiting the museum looking for Phoebe, Holden thinks the best part about the museum is how nothing ever changes. This is similar to his life because no matter what has happened, his view on life won't change.
Discussion Director
1.Can someone feel desperate to do something just because their friends have done it?
2.How can people's thoughts affect the way they treat people?
3.Do people sometimes feel like they have to be tough all the time?
4.Does everyone have a weak side?
5.Is our world full of people who live in a box and isolate themselves?
1.When Holden gets Phoebe a CD, it is like when my aunt used to bring my sister and I gifts from around the world.
2. Like Holden, some boys here in Sierra Vista =think they are better than everyone and that they can get any girl.
3.John Hinckely Jr.,a mentally disabled man who felt a connection to Holden, tried to assassinate President Ronald Reagan in 1981. He did it to try to impress Jodie Foster.
4. In the story, when Holden loses his brother Allie, he breaks all the windows and has to be hospitalized. Allie was very special to Holden and his loss devasted him. Like Holden, many teens who lose such an imporant family member often have a change in their view on life and personality. They are sometimes no longer the person they used to be because the loss of that person created a huge impact on their life.
Pg 173 Paragraph 6
"'Anyway, I keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field of rye and all. Thousands of little kids and nobody's around-nobody big, I mean- except me. And im standing on the edge of some crazy cliff. What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff- I mean if they're running and they don't look where they're going I have to come out of somewhere and catch them. That's all I'd do all day. I'd just be the catcher in the rye and all. I know it's crazy, but that's the only thing I'd really like to be. I know it's crazy'" This quote pretty much explains the title. Holden doesn't want to save just anybody's life, he wants to save kids' lives.
Pg 214, Paragraph 3
"If you want to know the truth, I don't know what I think about it. About all I know is, I sort of miss everybody I told about. Even old Stradlater and Ackley, for instance. I think I even miss that goddam Maurice. It's funny. Don't ever tell anybody anything. If you do, you start missing everybody." After leaving Pency, Holden is just as alone as he was at the beginning. After all the things he said about all the people he interacted with, he misses them all.

Holden Caulfield is a teenage boy who goes to a school named Pencey Prep. He is very isolated from his peers and is failing most of his classes, except English. He will have to leave Pencey due to his grades, but because of a fight with his roommate Stradlater, he decides to leave two days earlier. He wants to explore New York before going home. Throughout the story he interacts with teachers, prostitutes, nuns, an old girlfriend and his sister along the way. He is very careless and he hates on many people in his school. The only person he thinks positively about is his brother Allie, who passed away because of leukemia.

Artistic Replicator
Hi, my name is Alyssa and I did artistic replicator. For my role I made a short animation called "The World Behind Holden". My animation shows what Holden represents throughout the story. The first frame shows Holden standing on a hill isolated form society. The nest frame shows his form no emotion to a cocky smirk. This represents someone he is not. After that, it shows him closing his eyes into the darkness, representing his thoughts. In the next few frames it shows him running. Running from his dark and complicated thoughts. The flashes represent the quick happenings that are throughout the story. Next is him thinking the negative thoughts of others. Afterwords there is a tear drop falling . This represents the sadness and sorrow of the story.Towards the last few frames, Holden's thoughts become slightly positive. That leaves us with a shots film I
believe suits the story. Now I will show you "The World Behind Holden".
