|Title:||Melancholia, loss, and love : the failure of the epiphanic mode in Salinger’s the catcher in the rye and franny and zooey||Authors:||Lim, Yan Sin||Keywords:||DRNTU::Humanities::Literature::American||Issue Date:||2014||Abstract:||The epiphanic mode, whether in early modernist novels or the traditional genre of the bildungsroman, has worked to provide an affirmative resolution to the struggles and journeys in the narrative. However, the epiphanic mode ultimately fails in the fiction of postwar America. The cult of adolescence has come to represent the fiction of this time; this essay examines two works by a prominent writer of this cult - J.D. Salinger's "The Catcher in the Rye" and "Franny and Zooey", and the figure of the adolescent in these works.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10356/59145||Rights:||Nanyang Technological University||Fulltext Permission:||restricted||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
