Cliff’s Notes for Catcher in the Rye by Richard Prince
Notes for Richard Prince’s appropriated novel The Catcher in the Rye, including chapter summaries and commentaries, character sketches, and selected questions.
These Notes present a clear discussion of the action and thought of The Catcher in the Rye and a concise interpretation of its artistic merits and significance. They are intended as a supplementary aid to the serious student. Many of the greatest works of literature are obscure and bewildering upon first reading and are much more meaningful if the student has read a brief survey before he approaches the work itself.
THE NOTES ARE NOT A SUBSTITUTE FOR THE TEXT ITSELF OR FOR THE CLASSROOM DISCUSSION OF THE TEXT, AND THE STUDENT WHO SO ATTEMPTS TO USE THEM IS DENYING HIMSELF THE VERY EDUCATION THAT HE IS PRESUMABLY GIVING HIS MOST VITAL YEARS TO ACHIEVE.
The experience of millions of students over many years has shown that Notes such as these are a valuable educational tool and, properly used, can contribute materially to the great end of literature. - Eric Doeringer
