There is a common theme between this poem and this book: the loneliness, depression, and neglect teenagers face leads them to feel like “outliers” of society. Holden is going through a tough time after the loss of his brother. Life hasn’t been easy for Holden; he has had to deal with his bad grades, the stress of getting kicked out of schools, and the neglect by his parents. He has nobody to talk to, nobody to console him. In the poem, a fourteen year old faces many critical issues, although in comparison to Holden’s they seem trivial.

In Deresiewicz’s essay, he shares that he asked his class a question about the place that solitude has in their lives, and almost all of them answered that they have no time for it. Teenagers and young adults have not matured yet, but individuals teenage habits all begin to gradually dwindle as a person enters adulthood because the person is beginning to take on more responsibility. In essence, I believe that solitude leads a person into loneliness, and that the advantages of technology and social media heavily outweigh the advantages of living a fairly solitary life, and I will prove this. Deresiewicz begins his essay comparing three eras. The Romanticism, Modernism, and Postmodernism eras, and it is very clear that the postmodern era isn’t his favorite.
Looking at my wife on this ride home, as she cried, I knew that our time would be spent trying to get through to our son and fixing the problems. I surprised him at his after school program.

The story revolves around everyday life. Oliver is just an average boy that goes to school and yearns for the affection of his mother.

The ‘disease’ causes him great embarrassment and discomfort when he is around people and his Mother’s attitude towards it doesn’t help him. Her voice repeatedly interrupts the narrative of the story. While on holiday with his friend Michael and his family, Neil feels like he has to hide his condition. Instead of having fun, Neil finds refuge with homeowner Mrs Wan (a former duchess) who encourages him to feel better about himself and he finally gains enough confidence to go with Michael and do the things that normal boys of his age do. In the opening paragraph of the story, the author makes it clear how much Neil depends on his mother.
Unreachable Dreams in The Catcher in The Rye Many people find that their dreams are unreachable. Holden Caulfield realizes this in J.D. Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye. As Holden tells his story, he recounts the events since leaving the Pencey School to his psychiatrist. At first, Holden sounds like a typical, misguided teenager, rebellious towards his parents, angry with his teachers, and flunking out of school.
A poem which I have recently read is “Mid–term Break” by Seamus Heany. This poem told the story of someone’s death, which made the poem very sad to read. The poet showed the sadness using various techniques. The poem begins with the poet in the medical room of his boarding school, awaiting his neighbors to arrive to take him home. When he arrives home he sees his father is crying.There are also some friends and relatives in the house and he feels uncomfortable and a little embarrassed because grown men are shaking his hand.
