Holden Leaves Pencey
Holden Thinks About His Past Life With Jane
In the beginning of the novel, Holden is 17 and is in some sort of Mental Institution. He will not say why exactly, but he starts the story by saying he goes to a school called Penney Prep.
HOLDEN GOES TO SEE THE DUCKS
Holden leaves Penney Prep voluntarily even though he flunked out. He got in a fight with his friend Stradlater over a girl named Jane in which he had familiar relations with.
THE CATCHER IN THE RYE
Holden thinks back about how happy he used to be when he was with Jane. He felt a very strong connection with her and he gets depressed thinking about her because she is in the past
Holden gets hammered and visits Central Park to see the Ducks. Holden has been wondering what happens to them when Winter comes around. This is symbolizing him wondering what happens to him when he grows up.
Holden sister Phoebe asks him what he wants to be when he grows up and Holden says he wants to be a "Catcher in the Rye". This is symbolic because what he really is saying is that he wants to save kids from growing up
Holden goes to a Zoo with Phoebe after a fight and he watches her on a carousel in which he gets so happy he almost cries. He then concludes by saying he went home and ended up in the institution. He also will be going to a new school soon, but he will not say anything else other than that.
