5.0 étoiles sur 5 An unabashed look at the art and necessity of grieving, 19 novembre 2001
Ce commentaire fait référence à cette édition : The Catcher in the Rye (Broché)
If you haven't learned to grieve, you've grown up too fast. Such is, in my opinion, the moral of Salinger's most famous story. Of course, if you read this book, wherever you are in your life, you might miss this point. In other words, it might be too late for you. It might be hard for you to laugh at some of Holden's jokes. You might find his sarcasm childish, if not altogether empty. When he does stop to think about his most painful memories, when he takes time to miss the people he has loved and somewhere inside still loves, you might find yourself shocked - too distracted to feel. Holden's perhaps 'childish' humor turns out to be your crutch as well. Leaving those places of pain and desperation might feel like a relief to you, and then you're glad to see him write 'goddam' and 'hell' all over the place, and maybe you're not so bothered by the eventual 'fuck you.' These are more familiar signs of the life you know - what's come to be acceptable as an adult in our don't-look-too-much-over-your-shoulder adult world. Chin up, eyes on the ball, move it move it! But if you're still growing up too slow, if the thought of those you grieve (or refuse to) leaves you too paralyzed to laugh at times, too bitter to not hear some words as angry affronts to the humanity of how you'd rather feel and live, too hollow to manage more than a squint at the forever burning sun, then this book might be the place you need. A place of grief, yes, of childish humor, yes, but also, if you'll let it: a place of love and life and living alive to love.
