Hi my name is Holden Caulfield and i'm a mentally troubled high school drop out that ran away from home. "The Catcher in the Rye" is a book explaining my story of running away from home. The several experiences I go through lead me to end up in a mental health facility.
Scene 1 : Holden feels depressed once sunny leaves.
"Boy I felt miserable. I felt so depressed, you can't imagine. What I did, I started talking, sort of out loud, to Allie. I do that sometimes when I get very depressed" (Salinger 110)
Scene 2: Talking to an old pencey student that is old now.
"My pencey days were the happiest days of my life ..." (Salinger 186)
"Boy did he depress me! All you have to do to depress someone is give them a lot of phony advice" (Salinger 186).
Holden Caulfield has a very tragic past since his little brother had died at such an early age. He sees the world in a very dark way and hates anything that he doesnt see as good. His depression and sadness is shown in several ways through out the book, but mainly through his words.
Sunny and maurice leave the room after having beaten up holden for the money for sunny.
Holden is talking to an old Pencey graduate and the advice that he gives holden depresses him a lot since its "phony".
