Homework Help: English

Posted by Mattie on Saturday, October 29, 2011 at 5:02pm.

I have a question and would appreciate any input or advice

We just finished reading The Catcher in the Rye" and I'm stuck on a question for homework;
Holden's anger over Stadlater dationg Jane, who symbolically guards her kings in a game of checkers shows his strong desire to :

protect people he feels are innocent and vulnerable
have Jane for himself
be in control of every situation
expose the phony people

I'm leaning towards protecting people he feels are innocent, however, throughout the book, it indicates maybe he has feelings for Jane and made out with her, etc at one point

I'd be interested in a second opinion-please don't just direct me to sites-I've done that and still not sure which way to go-I did read the entire book so I'm not trying to cheat but just stuck--thank you
