đi coi Haloween, và nhớ ra đã là lần thứ n mình dự định đi học hip-hop rồi để đó...
con nít bây giờ thật là kool, chat thì toàn dùng kí hiệu, dám yêu, dám chơi và dám sống. và cho dù có là đúng hay sai đi nữa thì điều đó có quan trọng lắm không, khi ta còn trẻ ?
lâu lâu đọc báo, lại thấy lèm bèm giới trẻ bây giờ thế này, giới trẻ bây giờ thế kia. nhảm bò.
Life will break you.Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won’t either. For solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love.You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could. ~ quote
The catcher in the rye is the character in the song that goes through Holdens mind. The catcher stands in a field of rye and catches children just before they fall off the cliff. The catcher rescues them and sends them back to play, he just stands there all day and catches children.
The reason Salinger named the book that is because that is how Holden sees himself. The metaphor of the “catcher” is what he wants to be. The only people Holden (and Salinger too from what I’ve read about him) Really relate to and have any respect for are children.
Holden sees himself as having fallen off that cliff - fallen into pre-adulthood,fallen into an understanding of the world that is very different that what he experienced as a child. Certain events in his life (i.e. the death of his brother, and cruelty from schoolmates) have made him want to protect the reality of world from children who are still enjoying life in @!#$ land or in their imaginations. To Holden, adulthood robbed him of that and he wishes to protect children from falling into the abyss and the realization that people are “phonies”.
Holden wants to be the “Catcher in the Rye” because Holden needed his own catcher - and no one showed up. ~ quote
