Short Essays

  1. Holden wishes to be a “catcher in the rye,” someone who saves children prior to they fall off of a cliff. Strong answers will note that he hears this tune sung by a child, however that the lyrics are wrong (as Phoebe explains). The genuine lyrics have to do with “conference” a body in the rye. More sophisticated answers will address this discrepancy.

  2. Phoebe has actually appropriately intuited that Holden is depressed. It only confirms her suspicions to hear that the only things he takes a real interest in are his dead brother and this idle chatting with his little sister. Phoebe, like Mr. Antolini and others who are close to Holden, wants him to be successful and enjoy his life.

  3. Strong responses will support their viewpoints with proof from the text. Students might associate with Holden due to the fact that of his stark and sincere language, or they might discover his complaining annoying. They may argue that he has actually brought these problems on himself, or they may point out that he is grieving for his sibling and may have experienced other injuries.

  4. The most obvious answer is Holden’s battle with growing up and his worries about the adult years. Other answers are appropriate if they are supported by evidence.
