How is the theme of rejection presented in Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and J.D. Salinger’s The Catcher In The Rye? Rejection is a prominent theme throughout both of these bildungsroman novels. Both texts focus on the adventures of young male protagonists who feel jilted from a society, which they have been ostracized by. Written 67 years apart, both novels feature unusual characters who are somewhat innocent, naïve and desperate to reject the process of maturity and being ‘civilised’.
Holden uses the word phony to describe or point out the things that he doesn't like in the adult world that makes them, adults, superficial and two-faced, and the things that he wants to reject. As a sixteen years old adolescent boy, Holden watches around himself and he judges and criticize everything. Frankly, still Holden is young boy; he has the ability of recognizing what is phony and what is not phony in the world. Holden mainly mentions about phoniness of adults’ world and the phoniness of the media and he clearly tries tp ignore adults and the media because those two things rule the world Holden lives in. Salinger wrote The Catcher in the Rye six years later World War 2 and according to Long Sanxiang and Wang Xiaoling World War 2 influenced Salinger’s work and after World War 2, American society became wealthy and people started to loose their values and try enjoy their life with empty feelings (p.135-136).
Chris is a 23 year old male who was admitted to the Willows, an acute psychiatric ward for working age adults, in September 2009, appearing to be suffering from psychosis. Chris’ parents had became increasingly concerned when he disclosed that a famous rapper had been communicating with him telepathically, stating that he would soon be contacted and signed to a record label. Due to these delusions, Chris isolated himself from his family, friends and society, and terminated his education at college, effectively putting his life on hold awaiting contact from the rapper. Following his admission to the Willows, Chris was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia, a complex disorder of the brain which alters an individual’s thoughts, perception and behaviour (National Collaborating Centre for Mental Health, 2003, p.6). The delusions and hallucinations Chris was experiencing were eventually controlled with antipsychotic medication in the form of a depot injection, namely Flupentixol Decanoate, of which Chris received a 50mg dosage every two weeks (British National Formulary, 2009, p.203).
