Table of contents
Following an unpromising visit to Ernie's Nightclub in Greenwich Village , Holden agrees to have a prostitute named Sunny visit his room. His attitude toward the girl changes the minute she enters the room; she seems about the same age as he. Holden becomes uncomfortable with the situation, and when he tells her all he wants to do is talk, she becomes annoyed and leaves. Even though he still pays her the right amount for her time, she returns with her pimp Maurice and demands more money.
The Catcher in the Rye
Sunny takes five dollars from Holden's wallet; Maurice punches Holden in the stomach. After a short sleep, Holden, lonely and in need of personal connection, telephones Sally Hayes, a familiar date, and they agree to meet that afternoon to attend a play. Holden leaves the hotel, checks his luggage at Grand Central Station , and has a late breakfast. He meets two nuns, one an English teacher, with whom he discusses Romeo and Juliet.
Holden shops for a special record, "Little Shirley Beans", for his year-old sister Phoebe. He likes this record and knows Phoebe will enjoy it. He spots a small boy singing " If a body catch a body coming through the rye ", which makes him feel less depressed.
Afterward Holden and Sally go ice skating at Rockefeller Center. While drinking Coke , Holden impulsively invites Sally to run away with him to the wilderness. She declines, acts uninterested, and is too arrogant to try and understand Holden's point of view. Her responses deflate Holden's mood, prompting him to remark: Sally won't accept his apology and doesn't let him take her home.
She states, "No boy ever said that to me in my entire life. When she won't do so and gets angry, Holden finally leaves. Throughout the novel, Holden has been worried about the ducks in the lagoon at Central Park.

He tries to find them but breaks Phoebe's record in the process, causing him to almost cry. He feels that he may not be good enough, and the record was the only thing he thought he had to offer to his sister.
Exhausted physically, mentally, and financially, Holden heads home to see Phoebe. Holden recalls the Museum of Natural History , which he often visited as a child. He contrasts his evolving life with the statues of Eskimos in a diorama: Eventually, he sneaks into his parents' apartment while they are out, to visit his younger sister—and close friend—Phoebe, the only person with whom he seems to be able to communicate his true feelings. Holden shares a selfless fantasy he has been thinking about based on a mishearing of Robert Burns ' Comin' Through the Rye: His job is to catch the children if, in their abandon, they come close to falling off the brink; to be, in effect, the "catcher in the rye".
Because of this misinterpretation, Holden believes that to be the "catcher in the rye" means to save children from losing their innocence. When his parents come home, Holden slips out and visits his former and much-admired English teacher, Mr.
Antolini, who offers advice on life along with a place to sleep for the night. Antolini, quoting psychologist Wilhelm Stekel , advises Holden that wishing to die for a noble cause is the mark of the immature man, while it is the mark of the mature man to aspire to live humbly for one cause.
This is at odds with Holden's ideas of becoming a "catcher in the rye", symbolically saving children from the evils of adulthood. During the speech on life, Mr. Antolini has a number of cocktails served in highball glasses. Holden is upset when he wakes up in the night to find Mr. Antolini patting his head in a way that he regards as "flitty" homosexual.
It makes Holden feel very uncomfortable and embarrassed. Confused and uncertain, he leaves as dawn is breaking and spends most of Monday morning wandering the city. He questions whether his interpretation of Mr. Antolini's actions was correct, and wonders how much it matters anyway. Holden makes the decision that he will head out West and live as a deaf-mute.
When he explains this plan to Phoebe on Monday at lunchtime, she wants to go with him. Holden declines her offer, which upsets Phoebe, so Holden decides not to leave after all. Phoebe was looking forward to acting in a play that Friday. Despite his displaying outward frustration and anger, it is clear Holden wants Phoebe to be happy and safe, and he didn't think she would be if she left with him.
At the novel's conclusion, Holden decides not to mention much about later events up to the present day, finding them inconsequential. He alludes to "getting sick" and living in some sort of institution, and mentions he will be attending another school in September; he relates that he has been asked whether he will apply himself properly to his studies this time around and wonders whether such a question has any meaning before the fact.
Holden says that he doesn't want to tell anything more because, surprisingly, he has found himself missing two of his former classmates, Stradlater and Ackley, and even Maurice, the pimp who punched him. He warns the reader that telling others about their own experiences will lead them to miss the people who shared them.
Various older stories by Salinger contain characters similar to those in The Catcher in the Rye. While at Columbia University , he wrote a short story called " The Young Folks " in Whit Burnett 's class; one character from this story has been described as a "thinly penciled prototype of Sally Hayes".
The story " I'm Crazy ", which was published in the December 22, , issue of Collier's , contained material that was later used in The Catcher in the Rye. In , The New Yorker accepted a page manuscript about Holden Caulfield for publication, but Salinger later withdrew it.
Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye
The Catcher in the Rye is narrated in a subjective style from the point of view of Holden Caulfield, following his exact thought processes. There is flow in the seemingly disjointed ideas and episodes; for example, as Holden sits in a chair in his dorm, minor events, such as picking up a book or looking at a table, unfold into discussions about experiences. Critical reviews agree that the novel accurately reflected the teenage colloquial speech of the time.
Spoken pauses, such as "and all", "I really did" pepper the narration as well as Holden's dialogue. Bruce Brooks held that Holden's attitude remains unchanged at story's end, implying no maturation, thus differentiating the novel from young adult fiction.
Others highlight the dilemma of Holden's state, in between adolescence and adulthood. It is often said that Holden changes at the end, when he watches Phoebe on the carousel, and he talks about the golden ring and how it's good for kids to try and grab it. Salinger's "The Catcher in the Rye" , identifies the movie that the prostitute "Sunny" refers to.
In chapter 13 she says that in the movie a boy falls off a boat. The movie is Captains Courageous , starring Spencer Tracy. Sunny says that Holden looks like the boy who fell off the boat. Beidler shows page 28 a still of the boy, played by child-actor Freddie Bartholomew. Each Caulfield child has literary talent.
Falling off the cliff could be a progression into the adult world that surrounds him and that he strongly criticizes. Later, Phoebe and Holden exchange roles as the "catcher" and the "fallen"; he gives her his hunting hat, the catcher's symbol, and becomes the fallen as Phoebe becomes the catcher.
