    From Mr. Myatt's Junior English Class of 2009-2010 (1st Period)
    A Catcher in the Rye encyclopedia anyone can roam around. Be able to grab a red hat, look at a baseball mitt and roam around in New York City at Central Park, or in the Rye reading an adventurous book, watching a phony movie, going on a date, to the zoo or a bar or just confused roaming around in the rye. If you're the catcher, catch the kids before they fall. If you're roaming around, make sure not to fall of the cliff. Anyways, enjoy your adventures in the rye!
    Feel Free to Explore Holden's Hat!

    The Return of the Native By Thomas Hardy
    Although these books don't tell so much and that they are only mentioned, they have somewhat of a huge impact because this is part of Holden's personality and what he likes. The novel The Return of the Native By Thomas Hardy is important since the relationship of women in that novel is similar to Holden's feelings of women. Out of Africa By Isak Dinesen was the first novel to be mentioned since this is a novel which Holden received from the school by accident.
    As you browse through the plots and authors of these novels, it is clearly shown that Holden likes Modernist books or books that are way of the past such as very old poems. He likes adventure in stories as well as books with interest, even if he says that he is "quite illiterate". Some stories are about love or loneliness and they can greatly relate to Holden's thoughts, conflicts and personality.

    Comin' Through the Rye: This is a song sung by a little boy who runs on the street carelessly that cheers Holden up on his way to the park. This later becomes important towards the end of the story since he wants to be a "Catcher in the Rye". This has to do with children blinded by rye and not realizing the adult world ahead them and a cliff. So Holden would be a catcher and prevent the children from falling off the rye. However in Chapter 22, Phoebe says that Holden misheard the lyrics which he heard "If a body catch a body comin' through the rye", it was actually "If a body meet a body comin' through the rye"
