As they were talking my cousin came into the view and said to us, “ do you guys wanna play Mario Kart? “ My sister and I looked at each other and we knew the answer. We said yes. Then he stood up and went to turn on the tv and sat below us.

He starts off with a young boy who is nervous and shy to show and tell the class about his toy. With the usage of pictures and words, you can see that the boy is stuttering and feels uncomfortable presenting to the class (McCloud 738-739). What makes this opening scene significant is that you wouldn’t be able to grasp this idea that McCloud was trying to convey by just the use of pictures or words. McCloud’s work shows that since there are pictures and words in graphic novels, it gives you twice as many different ways to convey the appeals. In the show and tell vignette, the boy’s pathos is seen as nervous and shy with the combination of pictures and words.

The profanity represents Holden’s inability to prevent the loss of innocence in others. The provoking nature of the phrase represents his own inability to protect himself from the daunting aspects of adulthood. Through using a school as the setting, Salinger uses the understood symbol of children as innocence to make Holden’s return to school a return to his own innocence. In Holden’s constant battle to protect the innocence in the world, his return to the most nostalgic and innocence filled setting forces him to face the realization that everywhere he goes, he will have to struggle to preserve the purity.
However, during that time, Holden was hardly in the right frame of mind to enjoy the dream of the typical prep school boy. The way in which he parted by belittling his classmates as he left represents a complete rejection of the adolescent world, which, in this case, was “the glamorous adult life that his school is the monastic and detested antithesis of” (Trowbridge 683). He continues to seek innocence and reject the adult world any way that he can, even while trying to escape into a world that is filled with the phony

These events were pivotal to the beginning of the Civil War. “John Brown was born in Torrington, Connecticut, on May 9, 1800, five months after the death of George Washington”(Marrin,7).
