The escalation of Alienation from Salingers Catcher in the rye to Mc Inerneys Story of my life
1998 (English)Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year))Student thesis
Abstract [en]

This essay compares two American novels, Catcher in the rye by J. D. Salinger and Story of my Life by Jay mc Inerney, that deal with similar problems. The novels display certain structural as well as semantic similarities. Because of those similarities, which make a comparison between the books illustrative, the books have the potential of reflecting changes in society and add to our understanding of its’ development. This essay, thus, concentrates on the differences between the books, which are used to show how the feelings of disillusion and alienation that are salient features in both books, are escalated from Catcher in the Rye to Story of my life.
