    of bananas. They're very ordinary-looking fish when they swim in. But once they get in they behave like pigs...after they eat so many bananas they can't get out of the banana hole..they die.”(pg.14).

Recall earlier when instead of simply telling Sybil that she shouldn't poke the dog in the lobby Seymour comes up with a very innovative and original way to reprimand her without even saying a word about her. Looking at it this way sheds a whole new light on Seymour's story about the Bananafish. Instead of a strange story about an imaginary fish, Seymour is instead trying to warn Sibyl of the dangers of American culture and how if you keep taking and taking and always looking for more and not stopping once it starts to be too much you will become so full of it all that it will harm or even kill you and that is what Salinger thinks about American society.

When you seem different than everyone else, or have different motivations, goals and interests, people seem to think you will falter in your attempt to achieve your goals.

And yet, all are present in Nathaniel Hawthorne’s eerie second novel, The House of the Seven Gables. In it, Hawthorne introduces the Pyncheons, a self-righteous, greedy, and slothful people whose destructive hereditary traits arouse the revenge of the humble Maules. In turn, the Pyncheons blame the Maules’ revenge—and, particularly, the ancient curse of accused wizard Matthew Maule—for each…
