Community Quote

... What 'Catcher In The Rye' author J.D. Salinger does well is put the reader firmly in the fractured and ever-roaming mind of Holden Caulfield. The author's use of repetition and rapid divergence of topics gives the sense that we're witnessing a constant stream-of-consciousness; you'll be ... Read review

A Reader's Companion to J.D. Salinger's the Catcher in the Rye - Peter G. Beidler

A Reader's Companion to J.D. Salinger's the Catcher in the Rye - Peter G. Beidler

This second edition of Peter G. Beidler's Readers Companion builds on the success of the ... more

first edition. It will be an indispensable guide
for teachers, students, and general readers who
want fully to appreciate Salinger's perennial
bestseller. Now six decades old, The Catcher in
the Rye contains references to people, places,
books, movies, and historical events that will
puzzle many twenty-first century readers. This
edition includes a new section on reactions to
Salinger's death in January, 2010. Beidler
provides some 250 explanations to help readers
make sense of the culture through which Holden
Caulfield stumbles as he comes of age. He provides
a map showing the various stops in Holden's
Manhattan odyssey. Of particular interest to
readers whose native language is not English is
his glossary of more than a hundred terms,
phrases, and slang expressions. In his
introductory essay, "Catching The Catcher in the
Rye," Beidler discusses such topics as the
three-day time line for the novel, the way the
novel grew out of two earlier-published short
stories, the extent to which the novel is
autobiographical, what Holden looks like, and the
reasons for the enduring appeal of the novel. The
many photographs in the Reader's Companion give
fascinating glimpses into the world that Holden
has made famous. Beidler also provides discussion
of some of the issues that have engaged scholars
down through the years: the meaning of Holden's
red hunting hat, whether Holden writes his novel
in an insane asylum, Mr. Antolini's troubling
actions, and Holden's close relationship with his
sister and his two brothers.

Accurate - if often frustrating - depiction of adolescence

AdvantagesExtremely accurate depiction of the adolescent psyche, interesting characters, effective style

DisadvantagesThe character of Holden Caulfield may become tiresome for the reader

"In late-1940s America, rebellious teenager Holden Caulfield gives an account of his expulsion - the latest of many - from Pencey prep school and his subsequent journey into New York for a revelatory and self-destructive weekend. What 'Catcher In The Rye' author J.D. Salinger does well is put the reader firmly in the fractured and ever-roaming mind of Holden Caulfield. The author's use of repetition and rapid divergence of topics gives the sense ..." Read review
