Book Review The Catcher In The Rye

Ted Obvious over on Stirring Trouble Internationally is exploring New York again and one book that seems to pop up over on Amazon is listed below, the reason for this is unknown but the reaction to the book is explained perfectly well.

New biography of the controversial late author J.D.Salinger who wrote a series of novellas, controversial commonly for the Penguin classic book “The Catcher In The Rye” which was his first book published in 1951.

This book is constantly revived by other authors such as thirteen years ago a glossary is provided for sales and academic purposes by a handful or wanna be authors.

They give a syllabus for educational purposes, publish and sell as an e-book then go on to make their own book in the hope that the book will sell. This is called piggybacking of other authors and has been going on since oh I do not know about 1995.

Stanley P. Baldwin is one such author of the The Catcher in the Rye (Cliffs Notes), who chose the syllabus American English and labelled the book as Education.

The violence of Educational: English literature is mainstream and prominent thanks to the introduction of these Literary studies: fiction.

Cherry picking novelists and prose writers during this time has created a disturbing decline in the funding of Literary studies.

The outcast of runaway teenagers in literature is created by creating study guides like this and assume that the pupil is in the classroom they will want to read this sort of thing.

Over the years it was inevitable that this sort of thing would show badly on the department and when cutbacks came in these areas were the first singled out.

The classic, The Catcher In The Rye is about two characters Holden Caulfield and Phoebe, it’s broke up into sections like his earlier book of novellas.

Teenage boys in literature is popular however the subject of runaway teenagers in literature in school textbooks and these sorts of study guides are studied at higher levels of Literature Humanities because they make apparently such engaging study aids and study guides.

This is completely backwards, why choose controversial violent books to study. Well anyone who has studied Shakespeare in a classroom will be able to tell you why, done correctly you can get the attention of anyone in a group to read anything and make it seem exciting.

The Great Gatsby (1926 film)

The trouble is from the outside looking in you cannot help ask why. So why do I mention this?

Well I think it is important to study the effects and talk about that and not go into more detail about book, I am sure you have at some point been curious to read this book, this post is not about creating curiosity because there are better books out there that have not been studied by heaps of brainwashed people.

The Great Gatsby by F.Scott Fitzgerald is another book from an author who lived and perhaps drew inspiration from England’s English aristocratic United States city living in America particularly the New York Bay area, to the other side of America in Hollywood California which creates a polarised perspective of America’s diverse origin.

English: Robert Burns statue by G.A. Lawson in...

Robert Burns (1759-1796) the poet has some great quotes about books like these which you can read all about almost everywhere.

Robert Burns,The Complete Poems and Songs of Robert Burns, Waverley Books Ltd, Poetry by each poet, Burns, Robert, European – English, Irish, Scottish, Welsh,Poetry, Poetry Texts & Poetry Anthologies, Poetry, Drama and criticism of poetry.

Drama is another popular topic they teach as humanities and is a criticism of Scotland and Scottish Poetry. And Songs although interesting to fans of the Scots is not as important as other Texts.

You can read this book whilst on your PC or Mac, iPhone kindle device or android app or if you are more traditional and insist on reading in a classroom you might want to decide between reading in hardback or more economically a paperback version is conveniently also available.

Bob Dylan Portrait by T.HO 2004

Bob Dylan the poet and musician was a big fan of books like this because he liked rebels and could relate with feeling different and being alienated.

The best way to get your book trending is have it reviewed by The Financial Times, The Scotsman, The Sunday Express and The Mail On Sunday.

Mainstream Publishing, biography: arts and entertainment, each composer and musicians, specific bands and Groups, music, rock and Pop Music.

These are all really popular choices for a biography and or an autobiography especially in the Entertainment and Performing Arts section.

By reading a new biography especially in such a broad category as the arts; music genres or examining styles and reading pop vocal musicology you will be able to talk about why the song in a group is so popular.

Being able to navigate around the genres and styles of such as rock music by an individual composer you get a better profile of the musician.

The same thing applies to the author of a book.
