Salinger 's novel The Catcher in the Rye. On page 141, the author is describing how his main character Holden Caulfield feels very lost and he is saying some pretty suicidal things in this quote. Over the course of the whole story the author is making this a story about a young teenage boy in the strange ages between being a child and a adult and how he feels like he doesn’t fit in with many people because “they’re too phony”.

Throughout the whole book, Holden calls most of the characters a “phony.” In terms of Holden, phony means people who acts fake and are hypocrites. This supports the central claim because Holden confessing that he misses people shows that he has become more honest and learned the impossibility of becoming the catcher in the rye. Out of all the reasons given in the book, the realization during the carousel scene, the talk with his psychoanalyst, and the confession of desiring certain people’s presence stood out the most. It also shows how much Holden has change as a character. He was able to let go and accept the reality at the end of the book.

The Crucible Essay Analysis “History repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce.”I agree with this quote from Karl Marx and it means when people repeat the history, it is a tragedy but when when people keep repeating it, then it would display the ignorance and stupidity of people.

In Crucible, there is only one lead accuser of a crime of witchcraft is Abigail Williams and on the other side, the accuser was senator Joseph McCarthy. As The Crucible began with an actual witchery incident, The Red Scare began with accounts of communism within the American government.
