Salinger I want to be clear just because I loved this one doesn't mean I understood it There are MUCH better reviews that are able to deconstruct this story and explain the themes and characters in ways that I'm simply incapable of doing Or even understanding But what I CAN say is that Seymour struck a nerve in me that I can't really articulate I absolutely hated The Catcher in the Rye although I keep thinking maybe I should read it yet again and

review A Perfect Day for Bananafish 103 A Perfect Day for Bananafish is a short story by J D Salinger originally published. I see you re looking at my feet he said to her when the car was in motionI beg your pardon said the womanI said I see you re looking at my feetI beg your pardon I happened to be looking at the floor said the woman and faced the doors of the car A Perfect Day for Bananafish contrasts the world of children imaginative curious pure and innocent with the world of adults materialistic selfish shallow As you can see the story glorifies children and to some degree condemns the attitude of most adults It even explores the idea that children are somehow spiritually advanced than adults capable of seeing with the soul rather than the eyesIt features a young man who has returned from his service in World War II and is experiencing what today we would call post traumatic stress disorder Back in the 1940s however this term hadn t even been coined and people were far less informed about this sort of mental illness The protagonist then is highly misunderstood by the adults around him so he instead seeks refuge in the world of children where his madness amounts to little than joking banter The story makes us wonder what really counts as insane even calling into uestion the normal conversations between sane adultsSalinger wrote A Perfect Day for Bananafish when he was highly interested in Zen Buddhism The epigraph to this story s collection suggests that we approach each tale as though it were a Zen k an a riddle with no logical answer Bananafish in many ways rejects logical knowledge in favor of spiritual wisdom It also condemns materialism as a great danger to the soul s well beingThis story explores the isolating effects of mental illness Seymour Glass a troubled young man just back from service in World War II has difficulty adjusting to being home no doubt as a result of his experiences in the war In some ways Seymour self isolates but in other ways he is alienated by normal society that doesn t understand his mental condition This isolation is physical mental and spiritual Seymour finds himself alone in ways than oneIn A Perfect Day for Bananafish sex is one of the material pursuits that poses a threat to the well being of the soul In the Zen spirit of this work physical pleasures have no real value and only distract us from pursuing that which really matters Most of the story s commentary on sex lies between the lines or can be inferred from reading some of Salinger s other works on the same characters

review A Perfect Day for Bananafish 103 In the January 31 1948 issue of The New Yorker It was anthologized in 1949's 55 Sho. Stunning piece of writing Read this on it s own before later reading as part of Nine Stories which I reviewed This short story was the opening story featured in Nine Stories but first appeared in the January 1948 issue of the New Yorker It s arguably his best short story and the one that bought him critical acclaim It was also the first time Salinger used the character of Seymour Glass he would go on to chronicle the Glass family siblings in later stories Using great dialog to set the scene the story opens in a hotel in Florida before moving to the beach as Salinger presents brief facts on the characters and describes a series of events but it s then over to reader to try and fill in the blanks and work out whats going on Obviously for those who haven t read it I m not going to give away the main event surrounding the story and will just say that Salinger s story works as a sort of metaphor for the immediate years in American following WW2 where consumer society seems to be taking over It s a story that seriously stays with you which is remarkable really considering it s short I have loved the short stories of Cheever Yates and Carver Salinger here is eually as good

review A Perfect Day for Bananafish 103 Rt Stories from The New Yorker as well as in Salinger's 1953 collection Nine Storie. THE protagonist Seymour Glass has been scarred from his experiences in World War II and is suffering from psychological distress He is a total misfit in a world that seems to be guided by greed and materialism He has no real outlet for the complicated and bottled up emotions he carries inside him He is certainly not getting the tender loving care he needs as he has been released early from the Army hospital Seymour shuns the pretentious world of adults and seeks refuge in children He seems to share a much better rapport with the latter than he does with his wife Muriel who is extremely materialistic She reads cheap women magazines while he reads poetry She is concerned with the latest fashion fads than with her husband s emotional and psychological problems He prefers playing the piano in the hotel lounge and lying alone on the beach than being in her company All her materialism probably repulses him Communicating with children especially Sybil provides Seymour succour from the shellshock he has suffered during war His imagination is at its best when he tells her a story about bananafish and how they keep gobbling fish until they bloat up to get stuck in doorways Seymour s bananafish could also be an allusion to the snobbish class which is a slave to capitalism and goes on spending sprees ending up with hoarding things they don t really need Their greed devours them The ending which takes place in the hotel bedroom is bound to take you by surprise like it did me Muriel is sleeping on the bed He takes out an Ortgies calibre 765 automatic aims the pistol and fires a bullet But does he aerial fire to scare her Or does he shoot himself in the mirror sending shards flying all across the room Or does he open fire on the bedroom s window pane shattering it entirely with the pieces falling five floors down This is one of J D Salinger s best short stories if not the best Read and treat yourself to some classy entertainment
