Holden is always searching for a new friend but he always turns away at the last moment. When Holden interacts with women in the novel, he is very different when he interacts with men. The female characters all are very important because they present and symbolize many different things. In addition, Holden is very nice to younger females but to older females he gets sexually attracted. When this happens he will do anything to get women`s attention, which leads to him being an extremely disrespectful and impolite teenager who is also very immature.
Holden often filters his speech in order to please those around him, yet he thinks the complete opposite in his head e.g. when Holden is talking to Ernest’s mother on the train and lying about how he is one of the most “popular boys in school”, while in reality he believes he is doubtless “the biggest bastard”. * In particular he repeatedly explains how much he hates “phonies” such as his brother D.B. who sold out to Hollywood, D.B.s ex-girlfriend and even Stradlater, a shallow and “secret slob”. In saying this however, Holden is often recognised as a phony himself such as when he gives himself the identity of Rudolf Shmidt on the train or when he refuses sexual opportunities despite always thinking, questioning and desiring sex e.g.
Salinger, Holden Caulfield struggles with accepting that what his ideals are in his life are not what actually exist in the outside world. Holden has experienced several traumatic loses in his life that have caused him to believe in what he does. In Holden’s mind, after his younger brother Allie’s death, all children are incapable of seeing the complexity of the adult world. He sees them all as innocent children, but cannot understand that this innocence diminishes as the children become adults. If you copy this essay your teacher will know.
The Bell Jar Essay Thesis: Buddy Willard Esther's ex, pressures her into bad situations and to do things she has never done before due to his character issues and lack of respect for Esther. Buddy Willard is Esther's former boyfriend. He's the kind of guy that, in a mothers perspective is always trying to get you to be more like him.

There are many factors that lead to conformity or non-conformity and Aldus Huxley shows this trough his dystopian novel Brave New World. Because he is different, Bernard is the source of considerable speculation and suspicion. He does not enjoy sports; he likes to be alone; he is unhappy. Bernard doesn't know why he is dissatisfied, why he is different; many of his associates speculate that alcohol was accidentally put in his blood-surrogate while he was still "in the bottle." When we first meet Bernard we see him as a rebel, a protestor, "an individual."
At point, during the chapter she gets very jealous of Gatsby which shows that she has some feelings towards him. Since, she seems very scared about him finding someone else who is younger and much prettier than her and will take over his heart and he will give her everything he can. And she won’t be the one that is really wanted by him, and he will stop trying to impress her. She doesn’t want to have the attention taken off her, since she seems to really enjoy it. Gatsby really exaggerated Daisy’s appearance and characteristics, seems like a fantasy but she does seem to get him ‘glowing’ and really happy so, to some extent she lives up to his
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
I believed they did because I would think she missed her husband as he was gone all weekend and couldn’t wait for him to be home. Then she finds out what happens and seems to drift away from her husband for a little. In the end though, they seem to have sex again even though she is still mad at him. Some also might believe that she had sex with him was unenjoyably and she just did it because he wanted to. Although I believe many people will think many different reasons and they could ass be correct because the author does not state exactly why she does.
Victor literally compared himself to a slave because he was extremely caught up in his work. Honestly I’m not too fond of Victor’s personality because of how obsessed he got with science. Maybe he just was too nerdy of a person for me I don’t know I just can’t make many connections with him. Also, I find it weird that he becomes friends with a girl named Elizabeth then his parents adopt her because her parents died then the parents say that they should marry some day. I find that odd because I think that brothers and sisters should not marry or fall in love no matter if they are adopted or not, I just find that strange.
