As the novel goes on, we see a great issue between Holden and his troubling relationships with women, and pretty much everyone else.

Yet, even with his saying this, Holden cannot admit that he has some kind of feelings for Jane, an old friend whom he often thinks about throughout the book, and always wants to call but is never in the mood. If put through the eyes of Donald Hall, Literary and Cultural Theory, and his key principles based on Freudian theory, the reasons he does these things would be much clearer. He believes, in regard of Holden’s outburst with Sally confessing his love to her at an odd moment in chapter 17, that, “Holden has finally met a female willing to be with him and the very act enhances his feelings of rejection by his own mother.”
