"The Catcher in the Rye" is one of the most popular coming-of-age novels ever written, and its 17-year-old protagonist, Holden Caulfield, has become an icon of teen angst. The new full-length critical essays in this title provide a comprehensive critical look at this classic by J. D. Salinger. Master scholar Harold Bloom introduces the novel in this study guide, which also features a chronology, a bibliography, an index, and notes on the contributors.
