Transcript of Untitled Prezi
1.) What do we learn about Holden's relationship with his parents in this chapter?
We learn that Holden's parents provided him with a lousy childhood, because they were too occupied. Salinger, Pg. 3 (
"....and what my lousy childhood was like, and how my parents were occupied and all..."
2.) How has Holden's brother D.B. lost his respect? Why does Holden object to his brother's current writing? What does Holden mean when he says D.B. is in Hollywood "being a prostitute?"
D.B. lost Holden respect when he moved out to Hollywood, to write movies. Holden hates movies. Holden says that D.B. became a prostitute when he changed his writing styles in order for it to sell. Salinger, Pg. 4 (
" Now he's out in Hollywood, D.B, being a prostitute. If there's one thing i hate, it's the movies."
3.) What is Holden's self-image in Chapter 1? Find two supporting quotations. What incidents in this chapter tell us that Holden is a loner?
Holden's self image in chapter 1 is rebellious. Holden is a rebel because he just got kicked out of another prestigious school, and he doesn't care. This chapter provides us with the following examples that lead us to believe that Holden is a loner. Salinger, Pg. 6 ("
The reason I was standing way up on Thomsen Hill, instead of down at the game... I just got back from New York with the fencing team... i left all the foils and equipment and stuff on the goddamn subway
") Salinger , Pg. 6 ("
The whole team ostracized me the whole way back on the train. It was pretty funny in a way.")
Salinger, Pg.5 ("
You couldn't see the grandstand too hot, but you could hear them all yelling, deep and terrific on the Pency side, because practically the whole school except me was there,")
4.) Give an example of Holden making a broad generalization (A generalization unsupported with specific evidence.)
Holden expresses that the more expensive a school is the more thieves it has. Salinger, Pg. 7 ("
The more expensive a school is the more crooks it has-"
5.) In talking about good-bys, Holden says" I don't care is it's a sad goodbye, or a bad goodbye, but when I leave a place i like to know I'm leaving it. If you don't, you feel even worse.") What does this quotation show about Holden's character?
This quote shows us that Holden's character is very vulnerable, sensitive and not as tough as the front he put on. Salinger, Pg. 7
("Only i wasn't watching the game too much. What I was really hanging around for, I was trying to feel some kind of a good-bye")
6.) Describe Holden. How old is he?
Holden is very immature and child-like at this point in the novel. Salinger, Pg.13 (
"I act quite young for my age sometimes. I was sixteen then, and I'm seventeen now, and sometimes I act like I'm about thirteen.")
97.) Explain two examples of Holden's accepting reality in this chapter.
Salinger, Pg. 267 ("
She put the suitcase down " My clothes," she said. " IM going with you. Can I? Okay?
") Salinger, Pg. 273 (".
.. I was sort of afraid she'd fall off the goddamn horse, but i didn't say anything or do anything. The thing with kids is, if they want to grab for the gold ring, you have to let them do it, and not say anything if they fall off the fall off,"
