For Instance, when the narrator tries to Sheila by telling her about fishing, she says that she hates fishing. This causes the boy to change his identity and not being who he truly is.

He even asks people that he meets if “[they] know [about] those ducks in the lagoon right near Central Park South” (Salinger 60). When Holden asks this he says it in a way similar to how a child would.

Wetherell, the narrator realized that doing what he loves and being who he truly is comes before any significant person in his life. The narrator was obsessed with both Sheila Mant and fishing so if he wasn’t thinking about one it would be the other. On the way down to their date, the narrator found out that Sheila Mant thought fishing was stupid and boring while he could not live without it. During the story, the narrator decided to let down a fishing line while Sheila was not paying attention and this is where he started to face a dilemma.

The ducks in Central Park are first mentioned when Holden visits Mr. Spencer. As Mr. Spencer is discussing Holden’s failing grades, Holden thinks to himself, “The funny thing is, though, I was so sort of thinking of something else while I shot the bull… I was wondering if some guy came in a truck and took [the ducks] away to a zoo or something or if they just flew
For example, the fisherman “saw the fishing boat making in the direction of home after hearing a sporadic distant gunfire” (Hall). This explains that the fisherman ignores the signal of returning home because he does not want his expectations to be a waste on Christmas day. However, not only did he fail to see the signal of the atmosphere but the sudden change of the tide which cause him to “felt the deep vacuity of disbelief” (Hall).
