Tribute to Salinger
Jerome David Salinger, the writer for the New Yorker became famous novel The Catcher in the Rye, died Wednesday, January 27, 2010, at his home in Cornish, in the U.S. state of New Hampshire.
The novel 'The Catcher in the Rye' was first published in 1951 with the original title "The Catcher in the Rye (The hunter of the field of rye), which received an instant success.
To Salinger's own admission, the novel is highly autobiographical. The story takes place on a weekend, culminating in the 'arc of a few days. It captures all the essential features of the complex personality of the writer as a young man: it is represented 's Picture' s teenager, rebellious and in crisis, seeking a solution to his existential also exist in the world where he lives. Increasingly at odds with aspects of social life, Salinger wrote, "There is a marvelous peace in not publishing ... I love writing and I love writing but I write for myself and for my exclusive pleasure '
Meanwhile, the mystery grows for the 15 unpublished manuscripts that the writer, according to rumors of his neighbor, he kept in his safe house. And 'in fact known to the writer, very reserved, went gradually away from society, to shut himself in his home in Cornish, in total isolation, and not publishing anything from the date of publication of his latest novel Hapworth (June 19, 1965 ). Now, many people wonder whether Salinger has written for most total repudiation of the 'invasion of the society and the highest level to bring his cult of personality, or if he continued to write during his voluntary confinement in Cornish (and thus c' and much more to read and understand!), or the end, for the most exclusive pleasure her, he destroyed all his later writings unpublished. Personally, I think that if the 'last hypothesis is not true, Salinger has triggered intentionally or not, the biggest scoop of the century-advertising business.
