  • Catcher In The Rye Optimism Essay

    is forced to grow up faster than he is ready to, and he is pushed into premature loss of innocence without the guidance of his elders, friends, or family. It is important for teenagers to have at least one person who understands what they are going through in this difficult time. Even though Holden doesn't have this person for himself, he acts as this person for all readers of around the same age. Holden's story resonates with the reader and makes he or she feel that they are not alone.

Holden also wishes for better for others like him. He says, ". . . I’m standing on the edge of some crazy cliff. What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over…
