3Though Holden is supposed to write a descriptive composition about a room or place for Stradlater, Holden instead describes Allie, his brother, as an intelligent, nice, easy-going boy. He informs the reader that Allie died from leukemia about three years ago. The night Allie died, Holden used violence to cope with the emotional loss of his brother. The fact that the violence was self-inflicted further demonstrates Holden’s inability to deal with or articulate his feelings. It seems as though Holden used physical pain as way to cover the emotional pain that overwhelmed him. Additionally, Holden’s admission that he didn’t really even know what he was doing when he broke the windows in the garage further indicates that when faced with emotional trauma, like the death of a loved one, Holden detaches from reality in an effort to distance himself from feeling the emotional pain.
4Quote: “…the night he [Allie] died…I broke all the goddam windows with my fist, just for the hell of it…I hardly didn’t even know I was doing it, and you didn’t know Allie” (Salinger 39).
5Tweet: “Thinking about Allie…and my goddamn fist.” Hashtag: #Psychoanalyzed #IRememberWhenItRains
