Literary and Theoretical Writing

Holden’s Reality: The class I wrote this for was about American language and how it is constructed. Obviously, a conversation about grammar ensued. So, for my term paper, I wrote about J.D. Salinger’s Catcher in the Rye looking only at its grammar. I used stylistic and syntactical language as well as sentence diagrams to support my idea that Holden is trapped between two worlds: the adult world and the child world. I loved writing this essay because of my passion for grammar.
