Holden Caulfield being a phony
The Catcher In The Lies
Hello, my name is Holden Caulfield. I'm one of the main characters in the book called "The Catcher In The Rye". The book is about my life and all the experiences I have. I recently flunked out of high school, and now I have to find a way to keep it a secret and not get in trouble with my parents at home.
Scene 1: Holden wants to visit Phoebe but not get in trouble
I wanna go home and talk to Phoebe.
Scene 2: Phoebe Finds Out
"Daddy'll kill you." (Salinger 184).
"I told you. They let us out early. They let the whole-" (Salinger, 182).
In The Catcher In The Rye, even though Holden calls a lot of people "phony" he displays a lot of phoniness himself.
During this scene in the book, Holden is alone at night. He is kind of drunk, smoked cigarettes and is pretty sad. He decides he wants to go see his younger sister, named Phoebe. He sneaks inside of the house
Phoebe finds out that this whole time, Holden was lying and now she's upset that he's failing all his classes except English class.
