I wanted to show how Holdens journey began. I did this because when he left Pencey thats when everything happened and I showed it by showing him saying goodbye to the school.
i love you, Sally.
Aw Holden I love you too
Pheobe wake up
I wanted to emphasize Holden's objection to growing up. I did this because it sets up the rest of the story where Holden rejects adulthood. I showed it by showing the scene where he fights with Stradlater about going out with Jane because seeing Jane all grown up makes him see that he needs to grow up too.
Holden? What are you doing home?
I wanted to show one of the main roots to Holden's problems. That issue is the death of his brother Allie. I showed this because Holden is holding back on his childhood one reason being to remember Allie. I showed this by using the scene where he remebers Allies baseball glove and begins to describe him.
I wanted to show the turning point in Holden which is when he starts to accept adulthood. I showed this by using the scene where he goes on a date with Sally. Dating is an adult thing to.
I wanted to show that although earlier in the novel Holden started to do adult things, he was still a child. I showed this by showing that his kid sister, Pheobe, was one of the only people he trusted and he cherished his time with her. Also, throughout the novel Holden was seen as a perosn with hatred for everything. However, when he was with Pheobe he was different, he loved Pheobe very much.
