Through Franny Glass's spiritual breakdown, J. Salinger explores issues in not only mysticism and religion but also family, celebrity, education, and intellectualism. Of course, the religious themes are important: By the end of the "Zooey" section, Salinger seems to have arrived at a spiritual doctrine, to be followed by many of his characters.
I, and others, will suggest to you that, regardless of origin and intent, this volume works very well as a novel. In the Franny section chapter , we meet a giddy Franny Glass, through a letter announcing her excitement to be seeing soon and love for, one Lane Coutell, Lit major. Very shortly after her arrival, her enthusiasm wanes, a wariness of phonyism a la Holden Caulfield is voiced, and both may have something to do with a newfound interest in constant prayer. Acting matters. Embodiment matters. Let there be lights, camera, action.
College-boy Lane Coutell waits for his girlfriend, Franny Glass , to arrive by train. The big football game against Yale is this weekend. He rereads her letter, in which she repeatedly expresses her love for him. Franny arrives, and he asks her about the pea-green book she is carrying. She quickly puts it away and they walk out, with Franny making most of the small talk. Lane tells her the plan to get lunch, and Franny says she's missed him, though she quickly realizes that this is a lie. In Sickler's, a preferred restaurant of the college intellectuals, Franny and Lane drink martinis.
Access options available:. Rodrigues bio Upon the initial release of J. Situated at the crossroads of the s' emerging cultural debates on women's rights and institutionalized sexism, Franny and Zooey refuses to critique or promote either sociological or popular theories addressing Franny Glass's narrative-driving breakdown at Sickler's restaurant and subsequent crisis at her family home in Manhattan. This ambivalence made the text difficult to evaluate in its own time; thus, I open a new discussion of Franny and Zooey , examining its commentary on the effects of mass cultural images and representations of women. He remembered that once, in a borrowed car, after kissing Franny for a half hour or so, he had kissed her coat lapel, as though it were a perfectly desirable, organic extension of the person herself.
Franny and Zooey is a book by American author J. The book focuses on siblings Franny and Zooey, the two youngest members of the Glass family , which was a frequent focus of Salinger's writings. The story takes place in an unnamed college town during Franny's weekend visit to her boyfriend Lane. Disenchanted with the selfishness and inauthenticity she perceives all around her, she aims to escape it through spiritual means. While actor Zooey's younger sister Franny suffers a spiritual and existential breakdown in their parents' Manhattan living room, leaving their mother Bessie deeply concerned, Zooey comes to Franny's aid, offering what she thinks is brotherly love, understanding, and words of sage advice. The short story concerns Franny's weekend date with her collegiate boyfriend, Lane Coutell.
Franny and Zooey is just pages long. I write that not to advocate it as a quick read or even to suggest that it might be cheap although both might be handy for the beach. I point it out because its length is wildly deceptive. For within what Salinger himself described as a "pretty skimpy-looking book", he manages to steamroll a sizeable chunk of the human condition.

Salinger was single-minded about how he wanted his texts to be printed: no author photograph; no biography; no cover blurb; no endorsements; no quotes; no nothing, except of course the title and his name. The results are entirely befitting in their sophistication and minimalism; the typographical nuances embodying everything that Salinger stood for in his prose and what he ultimately became in person—iconoclast; literary paragon; recluse. Back in the States, traumatized and disillusioned, Salinger sought solace in Eastern religion, and in particular, the teachings of Zen Buddhism, Advaita Vedanta and Russian folklore. After publishing his masterwork, The Catcher in the Rye, in —the story of a disaffected youth personified by the iconic Holden Caulfield—Salinger turned his attention to composing short stories about a family he created called the Glasses: the parents, two former vaudeville entertainers, Les and Bessie; and their seven precocious children, Seymour, Buddy, Boo Boo, Walter, Waker, Zooey and Franny. Franny Glass is a year-old English major college student, and youngest of the Glass family, who goes to meet her boyfriend, Lane Coutell, also an English major, for a weekend football game at his college.
Though brilliantly sunny, Saturday morning was overcoat weather again, not just topcoat weather, as it had been all week and as everyone had hoped it would stay for the big weekend — the week- end of the Yale game. Of the twenty-some young men who were waiting at the station for their dates to arrive on the ten-fifty-two, no more than six or seven were out on the cold, open platform. The rest were standing around in hatless, smoky little groups of twos and threes and fours inside the heated waiting room, talking in voices that, almost without exception, sounded collegiately dogmatic, as though each young man, in his strident, conversational turn, was clearing up, once and for all, some highly controversial issue, one that the outside, non-matriculating world had been bungling, provocatively or not, for centuries. Lane Coutell, in a Burberry raincoat that apparently had a wool liner buttoned into it, was one of the six or seven boys out on the open platform. For ten minutes or more, he had deliberately been standing just out of conversation range of the other boys, his back against the free Christian Science literature rack, his ungloved hands in his coat pockets. He was wearing a maroon cashmere muffler which had hiked up on his neck, giving him next to no protection against the cold.

Беккер тоже понизил голос: - Мне нужно поговорить с одной из сопровождающих, которая, по-видимому, приглашена сегодня к вам на обед. Ее зовут Росио. Консьерж шумно выдохнул, словно сбросив с плеч тяжесть. - А-а, Росио - прелестное создание. - Мне нужно немедленно ее увидеть. - Но, сеньор, она занята с клиентом.
Понятно, домой он так и не ушел и теперь в панике пытается что-то внушить Хейлу. Она понимала, что это больше не имеет значения: Хейл и без того знал все, что можно было знать. Мне нужно доложить об этом Стратмору, - подумала она, - и как можно скорее. ГЛАВА 38 Хейл остановился в центре комнаты и пристально посмотрел на Сьюзан. - Что случилось, Сью. У тебя ужасный вид.
Глаза ее не отрывались от экрана. Мозг лихорадочно искал какое-то другое объяснение, но не находил. Перед ее глазами было внезапно появившееся доказательство: Танкадо использовал меняющуюся последовательность для создания функции меняющегося открытого текста, а Хейл вступил с ним в сговор с целью свалить Агентство национальной безопасности. - Это н-не… - заикаясь, произнесла она вслух, - невероятно. И, словно возражая ей, в ее мозгу эхом прозвучали слова Хейла, сказанные чуть раньше: Танкадо не раз мне писал… Стратмор сильно рисковал, взяв меня в АНБ… Рано или поздно я отсюда слиняю.
Мидж появилась в дверях со свежей распечаткой в руке. - Директор, Стратмору не удается отключить ТРАНСТЕКСТ. - Что?! - хором вскричали Бринкерхофф и Фонтейн. - Он пытался, сэр! - Мидж помахала листком бумаги.
Это какая-то глупая шутка. Он не находил слов. - Ты знаешь ее фамилию. Двухцветный задумался и развел руками. - Каким рейсом она летит.
Произведя его на свет, она умерла из-за осложнений, вызванных радиационным поражением, от которого страдала многие годы. В 1945 году, когда Энсей еще не родился, его мать вместе с другими добровольцами поехала в Хиросиму, где работала в одном из ожоговых центров.
