Catcher in the Rye Essay It is often hard for a person to comprehend another person’s point of view. Too often a bias prevents this person from really listening and understanding the argument another person is trying to make. The novel, The Catcher in the Rye, by J.D. Salinger, is a classic and infamous novel. This novel’s infamy is due, in large part, to its protagonist’s use of slang and profanity throughout the book. The slang and the profanity are not without reason though. To better understand Holden, as a person, the reader to know him in a more personal way. Holden must use the slang and the rather foul language that he does for the novel to succeed as a powerful and truthful testimonial to all of the phoniness in the world. The only true personal glimpse that the reader has of Holden is when he uses slang and cursing. Readers sense that he is laid back with his casual, sarcastic “very big deal” (3), and passionate about his emotions “I wouldn’t visit that sunuvabitch Morrow for all the dough in the world, even if I was desperate”
