The saddest thing about betrayal is that it never comes from your enemies.

You know that feeling you get when you really like someone and you hold their hand for the first time? How it just feels so satisfying to know they have the same feelings for you? It feels like a sexual release. It’s such a light, timid hand hold. Like, they can let go easily if they want and you can too but you both try so hard to hold onto each other so lightly. It just feels so innocent and right. Literally one of the best feelings in the world.

Once in a while it really hits people that they don’t have to experience the world in the way they have been told to.

I have made a home inside the woods
and call the trees by names, Suzy,
Helen, Ester, all stiff in their stance
‘til some vagrant wind invites them to dance.

Now you call out to me from outside my home.
Your booming voice shakes sky and ground.
I have been at peace amongst trees and stone,
if I heed will I be any less lost and finally found?

jane is this super pure memory in Holden’s mind. I always thought that was why he never called her and never tried to meet up with her. He knows that she can’t stay the perfect pure child that she was when he last saw her and that she still is in his memories. She’s like this one little piece of his life that isn’t gross and sad and weird. I also think that’s why he’s so upset when his roommate goes on a date with her and talks about getting with her. Jane is this picture of purity. She keeps her kings in the back row. Although I don’t believe in the concept of “virginity” I do think that sex is important to Holden. He says he wants to have sex but in reality I don’t think he does. Sex isn’t something for carefree children with easy, happy lives. Sex is something for adults full of loss and sadness and complicated emotions. Holden doesn’t want to grow up, he doesn’t want to admit to himself that he’s one of those sad adults now. In the same way he doesn’t want to think about his darling sweet jane Gallagher necking some dude in the back of his car. He wants her to stay pure because now that he’s lost his brother (and is losing his sister), that pure memory is the only remnant of his childhood that he has left. Holden wants to freeze time, that’s where all the talk of nothing changing in the museum comes in. His brother is important to him because in death he will never grow up and become bitter like Holden did and like phoebe will do. Feel free to ask me to talk about anything else in catcher, it’s my fave this ever :)

Anonymous said: what about when mr antolini pats Holden's head when he's asleep. at the end of that passage, holden says something along the lines of "that's happened to me about a dozen times" do you think that he had been abused by an adult before? and also I want to hear your take on the last line of the book "don't ever tell anybody anything, or else you'll end up missing everybody" what does that mean to you?

The mr antolini scene is one of my least favorite scenes. I honestly have a really hard time trying to figure it out. I don’t think Holden has been sexually abused, that’s not really a thing that people wrote about at that time and I don’t think it’s something Salinger would write about (see “bananafish”, “for esme”, etc). I think it may just be that Holden is not accustomed to affection and feels uncomfortable with it. He clearly isn’t close with his parents so he probably never experiences things like that. I don’t think mr antolini is a bad guy or is trying to take advantage of Holden (I mean look at the story about the boy who jumps out of the window). I just think Holden is constantly sabotaging himself. He’s too comfortable with an adult he likes and trusts so he’s looking for any excuse to get out of there and sleep in grand central with the homeless people. He’s destroying himself (drinking, cold weather, awful nutrition), and this is part of that. As for the final line of the book I think it just goes to show Holden’s soft-heartedness. He really does want to love everyone. He feels this weird sad affection even to people who have been awful to him. I can relate to that. There’s something about the fact that people just exist in this world that makes me feel all tender inside. I think Holden is the same way.
