J. D. Salinger's novel, <I>The Catcher in the Rye celebrated its fiftieth anniversary of publication in 2001. <I>The Catcher in the Rye: New Essays presents a variety of new approaches to this extremely popular and intensely influential novel, ranging from the examination of the intertextual relationship between <I>The Catcher in the Rye and Cormac McCarthy's <I>All the Pretty Horses, to the evaluation of Salinger's mythic place in American film and popular culture, to the interrogation of what it means for a reader to claim that a novel such as <I>The Catcher in the Rye has changed his or her life. These essays provide new commentary and new insights, and demonstrate the continuing relevance of Salinger, <I>The Catcher in the Rye, and Holden Caulfield to American culture and literature and, in turn, to American cultural and literary studies.
