Hapworth 16, by J.D. Salinger
The site’s exploration covers not only Salinger’s classic novel The Catcher in the Rye, but also the author’s lesser-known writings, published and unpublished. Buddy has just received a registered mail from his mother, Bessie.
Opening it, he discovered a letter written by Seymour to his family back in The letter is addressed from the infirmary of Camp Simon Hapworth, Maine, where Seymour and Buddy spent the summer when they were seven and five. It is an extremely long letter and a mass of contradictions that display Seymour embroiled in a kind of tug-of-war between spiritual maturity and the confines of his earthly young age. The letter relays Seymour and Buddy’s camp experiences, both poignant and painful.
Seymour tells the story of how he gashed his leg on a cart wheel and has been sent to the camp infirmary, where the letter is written. Some portions of the letter are shocking. Seymour sternly lectures his parents and siblings while relentlessly issuing them orders. He reveals a burgeoning sexuality to his mother with something of relish and goes on at great length about his physical attraction to the camp director’s pregnant wife.
But for admirers of Hapworthh Glass, the letter’s most shocking portions are his frequent outbursts of anger and his intolerance for those he deems intellectually and spiritually inferior.
A long section of the story is devoted to Seymour’s request for an enormous supply of books, each with the spiritual-savant’s cursory critique of the author’s merits. Also remarkable is a section of the letter that Seymour addresses to God.
In it he gives himself over to the will of God completely and dedicates his life to His yapworth. When released inliterary critics dismissed it.
