Few novels have had more influence on individuals and literary culture than J.D. Salinger’s The Catcher in the Rye. Published in 1951 and intended by Salinger for adults (early drafts were published in the New Yorker and Colliers), the novel quickly became championed by youth who identified with the awkwardness and alienation of the novel’s protagonist, Holden Caulfield. Since then the book and its reclusive author have been fixtures of both popular and literary culture. Catcher is perhaps the only modern novel that is revered equally by the countless Americans whom Holden Caulfield helped through high school and puberty and literary critics (such as the New Yorker’s Adam Gopnik who insisted as recently as 2010 that Catcher is a "perfect" twentieth-century novel). One premise of The Catcher in the Rye and Philosophy is that the ease and sincerity with which readers identify with Holden Caulfield rests on Salinger’s attention to the nuances and qualities of experience in the modern world. Coupled with Salinger’s deft subjective, first-person style, Holden comes to seem more real than any fictional character should. This and other paradoxes raised by the novel are treated by authors who find answers in philosophy, particularly in twentieth-century phenomenology and existentialism--areas of philosophy that share Salinger’s attention to lived, as opposed to theorized, experience. Holden’s preoccupation with “phonies,” along with his constant striving to interpret and judge the motives and beliefs of those around him, also taps into contemporary interest in philosophical theories of justice and Harry Frankfurt’s recently celebrated analysis of "bullshit." Per Salinger’s request, Catcher has never been made into a movie. One measure of the devotion and fanatical interest Catcher continues to inspire, however, is speculation in blogs and magazines about whether movie rights may become available in the wake of Salinger’s death in 2010. These articles remain purely hypothetical, but the questions they inspire--Who would direct? And, especially, Who would star as Holden Caulfield?--are as vivid and real as Holden himself.

Holden begins his story at Pencey Preparatory, an exclusive private school (fictional, though based on Salinger's own experience at Valley Forge Military Academy) in Agerstown, Pennsylvania, on the Saturday afternoon of the traditional football game with rival school Saxon Hall. Holden ends up missing the game. As manager of the fencing team, he loses their equipment on a New York City subway train that morning, resulting in the cancellation of a match. He goes to the home of his history teacher named Mr. Spencer. Holden has been expelled and isn't to return after Christmas break, which begins the following Wednesday. Spencer is a well-meaning but long-winded middle-aged man. To Holden's annoyance, Spencer reads aloud Holden's history paper, in which Holden wrote a note to Spencer so his teacher wouldn't feel bad about failing him in the subject.

Bachelorarbeit aus dem Jahr 2006 im Fachbereich Anglistik - Komparatistik, Note: 1,3, Ruhr-Universitat Bochum, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In der vorliegenden Arbeit werden die Romane The Catcher in the Rye" (1951) von Jerome D. Salinger und Moon Palace" (1989) von Paul Auster einander gegenubergestellt. Vorhandene Schnittstellen sollen beleuchtet und markante Unterschiede herausgearbeitet werden. Im Zentrum der Beobachtungen wird dabei die Initiationsthematik stehen. Als einer der elementarsten Bestandteile in beiden Romanen, verdient sie eine grundliche Analyse hinsichtlich der Anlage von Charakteren und Plot sowie des Kontextes von Erzahlstruktur und -form. Die Initiation Story wird gemeinhin als eine Art Sonderform der Novels of Adolescence betrachtet. Dieser Begriff umfasst jene literarischen Texte, in denen Heranwachsende die Hauptrolle spielen. Der Lebensabschnitt der Jugend erfuhr mit Aufkommen der gefuhlsbetonten Stromung der Empfindsamkeit Mitte des 18. Jahrhunderts eine Neubewertung als eigenstandige Denk- und Gefuhlswelt, die sich auch auf die Literatur auswirkte. Peter Freese spricht von einem unaufhaltsamen Einzug" (Freese 1971, 15) jugendlicher Protagonisten in die amerikanische Literatur. Die Neubewertung brachte jedoch auch Schwierigkeiten mit sich: Betroffene fuhlen sich weder der Kinder- noch der Erwachsenenwelt zugehorig, woraus sich bei vielen ein individuelles schmerzhaftes Lebensgefuhl entwickelt: Die Adoleszenzkrise. Der junge Mensch wird aus dem Zustand kindlicher Unwissenheit heraus erstmals mit den Gesetzen der Erwachsenenwelt konfrontiert. Fur einen solchen Ubergang von einem in den anderen Zustand, der einem Weg von der Unschuld zur Erfahrung gleichkommt, ist die Suche nach einem Platz in der Welt und gleichsam auch nach einer gefestigten Identitat grundlegend. Diese schwierige Phase des Ubergangs von der Adoleszenz ins Erwachsenendasein steht in The Catcher in the Rye" und in Moon Palace" im Mittelpunkt der Handlung. Daher gilt es
