Week #2 (Passage Person): Dancing Love

Displaying IMG_6566.JPG

The passage I chose starts off with Holden dancing with a blonde who he claims to be “a terrific dancer”. After they finish dancing he states “I was half in love with her by the time we sat down”. He barely even knew her and he was already “half in love”? This just proves that teenage boys do not fully understand love. I chose this passage because I believe that it truly captures the mind of young boys and how they view love. All Holden saw was her dancing skills and good looks; that isn’t love. Love is deeper than that. This passage captures the realistic teenage reaction to women and how immature the character really is.
