Summary, etc.:
Salinger wrote a letter to Esquire in 1945: "The men who have been in this war deserve some sort of trembling melody rendered without embarrassment or regret, " (Esquire). In 1951, Salinger delivered just that. The Catcher in the Rye is not a war novel, but a riveting amalgam of the disillusionments and malcontent that Salinger likely incubated throughout his young life. Depression, trauma, and loss of innocence are brought to a point so fine that the book's publication erupted critical and popular disagreement on a scale that remains unmatched today.
