@Tifinden,
After you've read it, perhaps you can tell us. After all, it's YOUR homework assignment, right?

@Ragman,
Incorrect, although of course this assumption is the most obvious- pardon myself for the rather equivocal and uninformative, nondescript prompt- firstly, I have been indulging in the most emminent caliber of literature for quite some time now, and therefore fully comprehend Teddy in my own manner, yet I was merely attempting to receive a new dimension to my opinion regarding the short story- I am an erudite, academically scrupulous, and successful student who would not risk my reputation so promptly or in such an inferior manner. Please, answer the prompt, the above being all veritable. Unless of course, it may be thematically too recondite for your comprehension.

@hamilton,
It's really ok, Hamilton. Pity, though, since you haven't even read any of Salinger's works, I recommend Catcher in the Rye, or Franny and Zooey. However, as you have not yet delved into this eminence of literature, perhaps you should void your participation in this mature forum. Goodbye....

@Tifinden,
I do believe that common courtesy dictates, in such events as the above, where one makes inquiries towards subjective interpretations of any kind of literature, that the inquirer should feel obliged to answer his own question first, lest the recipients of the question feel they are being led into an intellectual snare set by fellow with a rather dubious motivation for asking in the first place.

and it really is quite rude to make such assumptions such as that. oh well, at least you stopped thinking my name is Noah. sometimes i really wonder about your judgment...

@contrex,
Would you care to demonstrate your eloquent linguistic flamboyance, or do the adequate components of your language, presumable English, so deceitfully and guilefully evade you? Please, enlighten us with your scintillating intelligence, I will be relishing rapturous days of convalescence.

Hamilton,bplease don't be so naive, it astounds me. You have not read any of Salinger's books, or compilations, for when I even mentioned the name, you acted as though to be confounded, honestly, don't attempt to persuade anyone here to believe you are read in the works of Salinger- shamefully, at your age, you are not!!-have wonderful evening- perhaps reading- works other than Salinger.

@Tifinden,
So far, no discussion has been begun- therefore it will be slightly difficult to provide my own opinion- I already own my views, I merely wish to hear of the variant opinions of the masses- stop staunching the ebbing flow of philosophical and fractious writing which should accompany...

I would also find it difficult to provide an opinion if I didn't have one.
