Holden Caulfield is the name of the protagonist in the novel, Catcher in the Rye, by J.D. Salinger.
Given the context and time of the story, Holden would have been born about 1932.
His family lives in New York City but he has just recently attended prep school in Pennsylvania.
Yes, Holden Caulfield is insecure about himself and just wants tobe accepted by the people he comes across.
Transient nausea, throbbing headache, a canker sore that won't go away, extreme fatigue and others. Some are caused by his less-than-great diet, but most are psychologically r…elated to his impending nervous breakdown.
Likely not; Caulfield was a confused young man trying to find his bearings in the world, and would have harmed himself before he harmed another person. Lennon's killer was ove…r twenty-one, had his own mind made up (though he was mentally ill), and used The Catcher in the Rye as an excuse for doing what he did.
He reacently attended Pencey Prep But got kicked out.
He is 6'2" and calls himself puny compared to other guys so perhaps around 150
Holden is 13 years old when Allie dies. Reference : The Catcher in the Rye - Page 38
holden caulfield told the audience (Us) what his life is and where he is going to go etc. He also explains everything about himself and the other people like Phoebe and Ackley… and Stradlater etc.
I would not medicalize his existence. He is alienated, disillusioned, etc. He may define it as an illness (mental) only because that is all he knows. The U.S. is an extremely …individualized society which lends itself to psychological explanations. If alienation was equivalent to mental illness, then mental illness would be at epidemic levels. You need to step out of the personal problems mentality and see the source of the problem in the larger. We are all products of our society (ties) as we internalize the norms and values through socialization. This becomes part of the origin of our personalities. He does not feel that he "fits in". Is that an illness? Most everyone experiences this some time in their life. I was born and raised in the Middle Atlantic States (U.S.). If I had to spend some time living in rural Mississippi, I would not "fit in". Does that make me mentally ill?

Holden was 17 when narrating the book, but the events of the book happened when he was 16.
"Field" in his last name relates to "Rye" in the title.
