Morality and ethics is a constant theme in the novel and is explored through a range of different language conventions and techniques. “Laura Wishart is dead.” (Silvey, P.230) This repeated phrase represents the human nature of sin and guilt. After dumping Laura’s body into the dam, Charlie constantly reminds himself that “Laura Wishart is dead.” Repetition of the phrase is shown after every major decision made by Charlie, linking his actions to the death of Laura Wishart. Charlie repeats this to himself because he thinks hiding Laura’s body was wrong and wishes to fix his mistakes. This shows that each decision Charlie makes is to hide Laura’s body, and Charlie is filled with guilt.

This shows mood because the narrator describes him as a hawk in mid-country, that means that he is all alone in what he feels to be like a barren or abandoned place.

B. Salinger includes the traumatic story of Allies death that happened years in advance to provide an explanation for Holden’s obsession with death and how he sees loss of innocence as equivalent to dying.
