First published in 1951, The Catcher in the Rye continues to be one of the most popular novels ever written as well as one of the most frequently banned books in the United States. In his introduction to this volume, Jack Salzman discusses the history of the novel's composition and publication, the mixed reception it has received from critics and scholars, the arguments surrounding the attempts at censorship, and its position in a postmodernist literary world. The essays that follow focus on various aspects of the novel: its ideology within the context of the cold war, its portrait of a particular subculture within American society, its account of patterns of adolescent crisis, and its rich and complex narrative structure

"Inhabiting fictional works written from 1790 through 1991, the figures profiled in Major Characters are presented in biographical essays that tell each one's life story and are drawn from novels and short stories that represent every era, genre, and style of American fictional writing."--BOOK JACKET
