        The Catcher in the Rye Part 2 | Crash Course English Literature #107

        In which John continues the discussion of JD Salinger's Catcher in the Rye (video two of two). This week John reads the novel with Salinger's life story in mind. John explores how Salinger's war experience, educational background, and romantic life inform the events of Holden Caulfield's life. How did Holden get to be such a whiny, self-absorbed teen? While it's not a great idea to read novels too biographically, Salinger's life surely informed Holden's.
