The way teenagers act and talk is always changing. From generation to generation it becomes harder to understand the new slang which is proven through The Catcher in the Rye. Some of the language used in the book is confusing to the next generation of teenagers. Which leads to the question is Holden Caulfield an authentic teen character? I think that Holden is an authentic teen character because he goes through real teen experiences, has to deal with dark times, and he has to face the emotional truths.
‘’I felt so lonesome, all of the sudden. I almost wished I was dead,’’ a quote from the classic novel The Catcher in the Rye by J.D Salinger which relates to how some teens felt at one point in their life.The novel was published to attract adult readers and has become popular for its themes, motifs, and connections an individual has with the main character, Holden Caulfield.We tend to feel a connection to the struggles of Holden Caulfield as we put ourselves in his shoes and see life through his perspective.

“To be, or not to be: that is the question” (3.1) these lines from the well-known play of Hamlet reflect on Hamlet feelings that he reveals in his speech.

To die. He pondered
A Funny Story that Means Something Depression is looked at in many ways. It’s also wildly misunderstood mainly because most people don’t understand the effect it can have on a person. It’s Kind of a Funny Story, a coming of age novel for young adults written by Ned Vizzini, touches on different people and the effect mental illness has on them. The story follows Craig Gilner, a teen dealing with the pressure of growing up, trying to make his parents proud, and planning out his future all while struggling to keep himself from drowning in his deepening sadness and anxiety. Now this book may sound like a complete downer and what you would automatically associate when you think of depression, but it’s so much more than that.
R&G Are Dead (A Discussion of Messages and Themes Present in the Film, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead) When it comes to influential literary works, there will always be spin offs or imitation from later authors. Sometimes these spin offs can be of high quality, or other times low quality.

Possibly the most widely famous play of all time, Shakespeare’s, Hamlet has earned a great deal of attention and study. As a result of this, a play was made much later to analyze the off screen actions of flat characters.
Rough draft Today Shakespeare is known as the large factor of most literary readings in mainstream culture. While all things that seem to be paranormal are usually eliminated by the realities of other know beings many aspiring authors that want their books to be looked at and studied just as any other writer, would tell you staying clear of ghost and, goblins ,witches and demons, for the being that these topics are known to be a sure sign of a low blow fiction novel.

I am quite looking forward to taking this English class, as it was always one of my favorite subjects in high school. I am also extremely nervous about taking this class, as this is my first time ever learning in a non-home school setting.
I am a better student because I have learned effective strategies and pondered over my future goals. I have learned a lot about myself as a reader and a writer.
