Book Review The Catcher In The Rye

The Catcher In The Rye. Classic Literature It Ain’tTed 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 for example thirteen years ago a glossary is provided for sales and academic purposes by a handful or wanna be authors. They provide a syllabus for educational purposes, publish and sell as an ebook 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 the fact 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 reflect badly on the department and when cutbacks came in these areas were the first to be singled out.

The classic, The Catcher In The Rye is about two characters Holden Caulfield and Phoebe, its broke up into sections like his previous book of novellas. Teenage boys in literature is popular however the 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 the question why. So why do I mention this? Well I think it is important to study the effects and talk about that rather than 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 much 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 Englands 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.

If You Look Like An Eccentric Back It Up With Something Unusual

Adam Lovejoy reports from London about eccentricity and fashion. Adam takes a look at fashion and how women dress these day and points out that if you look like an eccentric back it up with something unusual.  Now the first thing an eccentric noticeably definable is the clothes which is normal, everyone understands these statements and expect something special. Being accepted means doing something extraordinary. You often find this, the picture above shows two women with luminous clothes on and luminous socks to match. This is a reoccurring eccentricity in fashion that comes up now and again. Ask yourself this question are you someone who buys a book and highlights it with multicoloured felt pens or not. This could be one way of explaining why these trends come back and forth. This may seem like idiocy as a comparison however when you understand how people require attention in the busy world we live in and unable to distinguish text for further references it makes a lot of sense. Getting fashion right is no mean feat, best thing to do is go out and see what other people are saying for example this week the Frieze Art Fair is on in London. You could also align yourself with Lady Gaga who is very popular on Twitter and may be impressed with another luminous clothes or luminous socks revival. Its ok for men to especially if they have long trousers and no one can see that they are wearing luminous socks, its just a bit of secret eccentricity. If you take a look at what it actually means to be eccentric on Wikipedia you will find it has nothing to do with these fashion statements. Thats the great thing about WIkipedia, someone can update it add in some great quotes and edit certain pages when new trends happen in the news. You see this particularly in biographies of people still alive and when new archives of information come in about famous people who are no longer with us. I think you will find there is something unusual that you can find to support you on your own journey of eccentricity. And don’t let anyone say you look a bit of an oddball because its simply not true you just have to prove it, the problem is you have about, hmm 30 – 60 seconds. Also as fashion changes the pressures on people to conform can often make them go overboard and end up being described as eccentric and unusual rather than being unique, talented and special.

Its a sad reality when kids go missing, you see it everyday on the back of milk cartons in the morning. And when there is no other news stories like these make the headlines. Its up there with Elvis in the Kremlin and Michael Jackson stunt double was the man who died.
