        The Catcher in the Rye Part 1 | Crash Course English Literature #106

        In which John Green examines JD Salinger's novel The Catcher in the Rye (video one of two). John pulls out the old school literary criticism by examining the text itself rather than paying attention to the biographical or historical context of the novel (that's for the next video). The Catcher in the Rye has managed to endure without a movie adaptation because a lot of its quality arises from the book's language. Find out how Holden's voice, his language, and his narrative technique combine to make the novel work.
