Zhang, John Zaixin. Notes on The Catcher in the Rye

Salinger, J. D. The Catcher in the Rye (1951). Harmondsworth: Penguin, 1958.

 

3     Irresponsible manger, unreliable “I”

      Hasty generalization – “The more expensive a school is, the more crooks it has.”

4     When leaving a place, he has to know he’s leaving the place – past time to remember the place – disappearing from the place (crossing a road)

7     Life, a game with rules – if hot-shots on your side.

7-8     Nodding, shaking head.

6, 9     Vicks Nose Drops – Spencer picking his nose (flu) – disgusting, no compassion.

9      Fastidious about Spencer’s way of speaking (for emphasis).

7, 9      Harps on the hard bed.

10      Complains that Spencer has no respect for him, when the teacher wants to prove a point.

9, 10      Spencer misses when throwing something on the bed – picking on his senility (6).

11     “Funny thing” – couldn’t concentrate on one thing at a time – “lucky”

14     Negative attitude

15      Problem with the person pronoun “He/him” – semi-illiterate

16      Would call up a dead author (Hardy died in 1928) from the past as if friends in the present.

18      “Horsing around” - hunting hat (its peak hanging down over his eyes, like a tie?) – give me your hand – male images

19      About the hunting hat: a people shooting hat (not a deer shooting hat), for “hunting” people

21      Holden: Stradlater would give Ackley his tie – leave it on his bed – a Freudian image – Confusion about sex?

22      Holden: Stradlater – bare torso – good build

23      Holden: Stradlater handsome

24      Peak of the hunting hat in front of Stradlater – sexual frustration about his date with Jane?

25      Hates movies, but likes imitating some dancers in them.

26      Stradlater: “cut my head off?” – castration threat (beheading).

25-6      Interested in Stradlatter’s date for tonight (it turns out to be Jane, although Holden thought it would be Fitzgerald).

28      Only sexy stuff interests Stradlater, and the same as Holden, about Jane’s stepfather running around in the house naked with Jane around.  Stradlater putting on his tie.

29     Thinking about Jane and Stradlater having a date – “a sexy bastard” – Holden nearly goes crazy.

33      Ackley a phony – talking about his sex experiences, but Holden thinks he’s a virgin.

      Writing a composition – putting on his hat, why? – sexual frustration, jealousy? (p. 40. wearing it all along till the fight with Stradlater)

34      Broke windows with his fist.

36      Does everything backwards.

37      Car, toothbrush, mouth – Freudian images

38      Hits Stradlater – mad about him (“give her the time”) – sex with Jane

42      A little lie to Ackley and jokes about it to get himself off the hook (Ackley asks about the fight with Stradlater).   Lonesome – seeking comfort in Ackley’s room, on Ely’s bed

43      Cares about Jane

48     Likes (older) women (40 or 45, his mother’s age) – not oversexed but sexy

      Tells Morrow’s mother his fake name, lies about her son

49      Likes Morrow’s mother (Oedipus complex?)

51      “I’d’ve enjoyed having her” (join him for a drink) – double meaning

53-73      Phone to extend spaces, stop at different places – mind wanders away, origin in the body (in space) or bodily desires.

54      Put on the hat in the cab, for the hell of it

56      “Biggest sex maniac” (all hormones) – confused about sex (about what he wants?) – wanted to give Jane a call, but not in the mood

56-7      Horny, then gives Faith a call (stripper) – didn’t work out

60      wants to give his sister a call

74-6      Ducks vs. fish – spatial terms

84      Couldn’t get body out of his mind.

82-8      Urges/principles to see a prostitute – chickens out in the end.

93-4      Imagination – to kill Maurice – violence to bodies.

94      Urge to commit suicide but “reasons” himself out of it with a dumb excuse

104     Catch a body in the rye – song

109-110      Everything in museum the same, you are different on every visit.

129      Girls’ pants sewed in hats (fetishist).

131      Typical Caulfield question: about sex.

132      China – sex both physical and spiritual

133      Have to like a girl to have desire for her (both spiritual and physical).

138-40      No ducks, thinking about death in Central Park.

138      Red hunting hat – shows it to hat-check girl – wants to date her.

143      Through rooms to get to Phoebe (Freud?)

145      Phoebe – good in all her subjects, best in spelling, but mechanics and spelling errors in one of her notebooks.

156      Wants to be the catcher in the rye in future. Protecting kids playing in the field of rye from falling over the cliff.

158      Phoebe – fakes a fever.

160      Mother – phony?

162      Gives hat to Phoebe.

164-5      Flunked Oral Expression, likes digression.

169      Immature vs. mature

170      Not the first to be confused and frightened.

171      Education – dress your mind.

172-5      Homosexual feelings for him? Tie (Freud).

176      Hormones.

178      Future: Go away, never go home, where nobody knows him.

179      Future: Would build a cabin near the woods, not right in them.

183      Likes it to be in the tomb for mummies – no peaceful place even there.

184      Picturing the future, all with me in it, no phony allowed in cabin.

185-6      Hat – changes hands – Phoebe wants to go away with him.

190-1      Phoebe will keep the hat – Holden will stay because of his feelings for his little sister. Relieved too because they two are so much alike – finally has developed a sense of responsibility for someone else (also he won’t lie to her, although he has lied many times before) – Phoebe – playing the catcher in the rye role – won’t go away with her to protect her.
