This also could be used to describe to describe his view on life seeing that he thought people were “boring” if they were just like everyone else and cared about the little details. The author also uses italics to emphasize words like in this sentence: “I mean if they’re running and they don’t look where they’re going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them”. Just as the Salinger used italics for the same purpose, to show how Holden only cared about the main idea, which in this case was his unrealistic role as the “Catcher in the Rye”. Holden seemed to try to get the point of what he was trying to tell his sister while she kept on correcting him. Another strategy used by the author to effectively
“All excess is ill, but drunkenness is of the worst sort. It spoils health, dismounts the mind, and unmans men”, (William Penn a preacher, minister, and missionary in the late seventeenth century). In The Absolutely True diary of a Part-Time Indian, Sherman Alexies shows us how alcohol abuse affects Junior's life, how painful it is to deal with the effect, and how it leads to violence and death of the ones he loves. Alcoholism is a disease that affects millions of people and it isn't different for Indians as we see in every other page of this novel. To understand why alcoholism is a disease, it's important to look up it's effects.

Screaming in the halls as his last goodbye to Pencey, it was the understandable plea of a lost soul. Ackley and Stradlatter’s actions expedited Holden’s departure as they emotionally challenged Holden to a point where it was easier for him to isolate himself and run away from his problems. Just as the fantasy and mystery of ducks leaving Central Park each year to fly somewhere unknown, Holden felt that same habitual desire to escape at the end of his stay at
Holden’s rejection of change is due for his fear of change, not be the same after growing up, accept something that he does not want to accept, be rejected by people, or even lose someone special to him. But everyone has to grow up and Holden does not grasp this concept. Not only his rejection of change affected his live, but he lied and wanted to be away from people. Instead of going to people to feel better, to ask for help, and to feel loved, Holden had lived among the consolation of his dead brother,
Holden’s problem is not ‘phonies’, but his inability to accept reality. DO YOU AGREE? J.D Salinger’s The Catcher in the Rye depicts Holden Caulfield, the protagonist of the text, as a miserable and despondent adolescent consumed by depression. To an extent, it is inferred that his issues are not linked with the so-called ‘phonies’ that he so often blatantly despises, but more so his reluctance to accept reality. In the context of the novel, the definition for the term ‘reality’ would most suitably be discussed as the adulthood which one acceptingly transitions to subsequent to their adolescence.

In Salinger's novel, The Catcher in the Rye, Holden Caufield makes it very clear that he does not like fake or phony people. Throughout the story Holden at times makes the reader feel like he or she should feel bad for him because of the hardships he's been through and how he has to deal with the "phonies" when he is actually one himself. As the story goes on Holden proves himself to be the real phony of the book because he never goes through with what he intends to do, he is overly concerned about sex but thinks its overrated, and he's very critical about other peoples lives. Holden Caulfield is the true phony and even more so a huge hypocrite throughout the novel. To start, All he wants to do is connect with someone but the boy has high standards.
The stories are autobiographical episodes of his life such as his 3 firings with the NJ RR. His father’s disapproval of his young friends and his school teacher taking him to the theater. His feelings of rage because his skin color caused him not to be served at restaurants although he got take out food at some.

Initially, Hamlet’s dislike for Claudius is unrelated to his father’s murder (though the line “Oh my prophetic soul” implys he had considered it), but he is still vehement in his hatred of the new king – particularily in comparison to his father “Hyperion to a satyr”. Purely from Hamlet’s words, we are presented with a thoroughly regative view of the new king, though at this point, little evidence from the play supports this point of view. All Claudius’ attempts to befriend Hamlet, or act in a fatherly matter [manner] are met with hostility and coldness. The ideas explored in this theme are still as relevent as
