Basically, Holden wants to preserve innocence in the world, and it’s probably why he never deals with sex itself directly. This is probably his good vs. evil battle. This explains why he feels frustrated when he sees the F word in the museum and at his sister’s school. And why he wants to alienate himself from the corrupt world. When Holden and Luce are discussing sex as being a physical and a spiritual experience, Holden says, “You can’t do it with everybody... and make it
Rashad: Passive Communication to Passive-aggressive communication Rashad chose to use passive communication at first because he didn’t respond to Robin. He stayed quiet and instead started to plan a way to get back at Robin for the way she spoke to him. When Rashad started to planning, this type of communication would be a passive-aggressive style of communication. The communication in the meeting was not effective between Rashad and Robin. Rashad was left not having his role explained to him, and now Rashad’s attention is on getting back Robin for what she did to him, instead of patient care being first.
Some common causes for “date rape” include miscommunication between the male and the female, drug or alcohol abuse and peer pressure. In our culture, men are taught to view women as sex objects and they usually do not take women seriously. These men often feel that women do not really mean what they say. If a woman states that she is not ready to participate in having sexual intercourse, some men take this to mean that she is playing “hard to get”. He has the impression that she really wants to have sex, but she is afraid of ruining her reputation.
As a result of his failure to make it to the baseball major leagues, Troy reflects his defeat on Cory, telling him he’ll never succeed because of the “white man”. In addition to his jealousy, another reason for Troy holding Cory back is he subconsciously does not want his son to surpassing his own life progress and accomplishments; this is unlike a usual Father who dreams of their child accomplishing more than themselves. Troy’s self-loathing also sabotages his seemingly satisfactory marriage. By cheating on Rose, Troy can escape his daily responsibilities and feelings of failure. He feels this way with his mistress, Alberta, because she does not know much of him or his past, unlike Rose.
Mitchell Pucci ENG3U1 Mrs. Pudas May 18th, 2011 TITLE One of the major issues in J.D. Salinger’s The Catcher in the Rye is the events leading up to the breakdown of a teenage boy, Holden Caulfield. Holden’s breakdown is a result of his relationship with others, the death of his brother, his personality, and his destructive choices. One of the main contributing factors towards Holden’s breakdown is the death of his brother, Allie. The loss of a sibling is obviously a traumatic event for anyone, especially a teenager.
In J.D. Salinger’s novel The Catcher in the Rye, the main character, Holden Caulfield, has difficulties coming to terms with his past, which in turn has a negative effect on all present situations. The tragedy of his brother’s death has left Holden empty. It is possible that Holden holds himself partially responsible for Allie’s death and now holds himself back from what his younger brother can no longer do such as mature, excel academically or form relationships. Because of past traumatic events, Holden forces himself into isolation out of his own fear and unknowing.
Brian had no permanent home and no stable job to support himself. He had sex with people he did not know and did drugs at the same time. He stated that, “My life has been out of control and it hasn't been in control for a while.” Factors that might have triggered Brian's addiction could include the lack of success in his life and low self esteem. In the article I read about drug addiction it said that recent studies have shown methamphetamine abuses have shown that they perform poorly on decision making tasks that involve regions of the frontal cortex (Cobb, 2009). This explanation can be a possible trigger to his addiction to sex and his lack of decision making in terms of putting himself in danger for many risk for infections.
He also doesn’t like it when Scout complains about Walter taking all of the syrup. This shows he wants his children to be polite and have manners. Another point is that Atticus thinks his children should have a good education. This is shown in “In your case, the law remains rigid. So to school you must go.” This shows us that Atticus doesn’t want his children to be brought up like he was.
It's awful"(p.16). The quote shows that he knows his guilty of lying, but he doesn't repent. Holden says, "that's the nice thing about carrousels, they always play the same song"(p.210). The quote shows that Holden doesn't like changes and doesn't want to be a change; he wants to remain the same, but he doesn't make sense because he also wants to be change himself to be "the catcher in the rye" to protect the children who are going to the cliff(p.173). Most of him in the novel, he is a liar who always says the things that don't make sense.
This is posted by John Smith in: http://voices.yahoo.com/holden-caulfield-catcher-rye-49935.html Holden Caulfield from Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye is a troubled young teenager who is trying to find his identity and establish security and stability during a period of transition from adolescence to adulthood. Like any other teenager, he struggles to find understanding of the world around him and meets many obstacles and contradictions along the way. However, Holden is different in that he places himself in a position where he cannot connect with others in his society and is thus hopelessly lonely and alienated. Holden cannot accept the help of others because he shuns the conventional world and in this sense becomes an iconoclast to
