500 Questions

What does rye mean in Catcher in the Rye?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

It's a very meaningful and beautiful title about childhood and innocence.

Holden Caulfield, our protagonist, is attempting to grasp onto his childhood. He has a lot of trauma, feeling distant from his parents and older brother and being extremely sorrowful and heartbroken from the loss of his younger brother, Allie, who passed away from a disease.

There is a poem that Holden feels connected to. In it, the Catcher is like a shepherd, protecting the innocent children running and playing around in a rye field. Holden mentions this to his younger sister, Phoebe, and he says that he wants to be the Catcher in the Rye. So, in short, he values childhood and innocence greatly. It's beautiful.

I like to think that Holden has a good life. He most likely gets a career in child protective services because he feels so attached to his childhood and thinks it's the best phase of life. As a young teenager myself, it's a gorgeous book and meaning that will stick with me forever. Adulthood and the future, it's a little worrying. I just need to accept that. It's sad, in a way, but it's a part of life.

Was John Lennon a humanitarian?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Basically yes, although he had a hot temper and was in a number of fights and violent confrontations when he was younger. He physically abused his first wife Cynthia (who he divorced in 1968), made some very provocative statements to the press, and could be threatening and bullying to anybody he felt was being too intrusive into certain aspects of his private life.

But he was opposed to torture and oppressive regimes, supported Amnesty International, was against the death penalty, and was really a kind man at heart who hated to see injustice and discrimination of any sort.

Did John Lennon had dyslexia?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

No, Bono doesn't have Dyslexia So far as we know, none of the members of U2 have any learning disabilities, though Bono and The Edge did appear at a charity in November, 2007 to raise money for Mencap (a UK organization that helps people with learning disabilities). "Don't tell Larry and Adam we did this," Bono quipped. Billed as the warm-up act for one of Mencap's Little Noise Sessions, the identity of the 'special guests' was kept secret. Host Jo Whiley introduced the duo as "a new band with a lot of potential…Dave the guitarist is very nervous…If he makes a mistake forgive him, he's new. The singer is very shy."

Which song did john Lennon write to paul McCartney?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

That is a hard question to answer without LOTS of research. Truth is, Lennon and McCartney are responsible for teaming up on most of the songs that the Beatles recorded. There has to be hundreds of them!!!

Paul readily said in an interview which ones belonged to who. He would say "That one was John's, or that was mine." The one who sings it, is a good indication of who's is who's. They would put both their names on the songs. Yesterday for instance was a McCartney song. He literally woke up out of a dream with the song in his head, and went right to the piano. The working title was "Scrambled Eggs", in G, until he came up with "Yesterday".

Why did John Steinbeck become a famous author?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Steinbeck was one of the very few twentieth century US writers who jumped into the saddle, so to speak and direclty attacked and got involved with social problems such as the Depression( Grapes of Wrath). Mental retarded ranch hands(Of Mice and Men) and other gross topics rarely handled by other writers. He was considered left of c enter and was refused a commission in G-2 when he applied for one in World war II. Steinbeck acknowledges violence as a reality but rarely espouses it, unlike that hellk-for-leather type Hemingway. He is more socially oriented than his big rival. Both men of the pen were Nobel Laureates I would prefer Steinbeck.

How long were John Lennon and Yoko Ono's Bed-Ins for Peace?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The first was held at the Amsterdam Hilton hotel, the week after their wedding in March 1969, and lasted seven days. Lennon and Ono reasoned that wherever they had their honeymoon, the media would turn up, so instead of trying to hide, they made it a public event on behalf of peace, and invited the media to visit.

Lennon said later "The press came charging through the door, expecting us to be screwing in bed." Instead of making love for the cameras, the two were sitting up in bed in pajamas, talking about peace and nonviolence. (A set of sound bites from the week became one half of their Wedding Album, including two recorded interviews.)

The second Bed-In was planned for the Virgin Islands that June, but ended the first day; the hotel where they stayed had only twin beds, cemented to the floor, and room service prices were ridiculously high. Unable to enter the United States because of Lennon's recent hashish conviction in England, they instead relocated the event to Montreal, Quebec, where they stayed ten days. ("Give Peace A Chance" was recorded live in their hotel suite.)
