Tracing The Title A.Chapter 5 – Allie’s baseball glove A.Pency Prep – Stradlater, Holden gets punched and soon leaves Pency Prep B.Chapter 16 – the kid singing A.New York City – Sally Hayes, After their date, they argue and Holden goes home to see Phoebe C.Chapter 22 – Holden and Phoebe A.Home – Antolini, Holden wakes up in the night and decides to run away, but wants to see Phoebe first D.Chapter 25 – Phoebe on the carrousel A.Carrousel in the Park – His parents (implied), then Holden returns to the frame story talking to his psychiatrist.
Analysis Questions 1.The movement indicates that Holden is moving from social frameworks, school and the city, towards home and childhood, a carrousel. Also the movement is from physical violence (Stradlater) and verbal abuse (Sally), through betrayal (Antolini) to acceptance and happiness (Phoebe). 2.Holden is rejected by a boy his own age (Stradlater), rejects a girl his own age (Sally), is betrayed by an older brother figure (Antolini), and ultimately finds his own sense of happiness in himself, watching his little sister (Phoebe) ride the carrousel.
Allusion Allusion an expression designed to call something to mind without mentioning it explicitly; an indirect or passing reference.
Comin Thro’ The Rye’ weet – wet draigl't – draggled gin – if, should warld – world ken – know Please use this translation key to read Robert Burns poem then reread the description of Phoebe on the carrousel in chapter 25.
Understanding Allusion, Part A 1.Jenny, travelling through a field of rye, has ruined her petticoat and is all wet. Further, if one person kisses another, i.e. shows love, why would one cry? Need the world know what we do in our private lives? 2.Sometimes we get damaged in our passages through life, as both Jenny and Holden have done. Private moments of joy (kisses) and sorrow (tears) need not always be known to the world.
Understanding Allusion, Part B 1.In stanza 1 of Burns’ poem, Jenny “draigl’t a’ her petticoatie,” which implies that for her to come through the rye field, she has had to accept certain risks. In paragraph on the of the cited passage, Holden comments on the risks children must take in order to grab the gold ring, a symbol of success. 2.In stanza II of Burns’ poem, he mentions, “gin a body kiss a boy,” and in paragraph six of the cited passage, Holden says that Phoebe suddenly gave him a kiss.
Understanding Allusion 3.In the opening line of the chorus, Burns tells that “jenny’s a weet”; in the last paragraph of the cited passage, Holden refers to the rain and getting wet. 4.Stana II, Burns asks, “Gin a body kiss a body, Need a body cry?”; in the last paragraph of the cited passage, after Phoebe has kissed Holden and he is soaked by the rain, he is ready to cry.
