We chose to make an online conversation between Holden and Jane because we felt it would really demonstrate the interactions between them. At first, Holden is timid and shy to Jane, and doesn’t really want to talk about how he failed out of school, or anything of the sorts. He simply says “nothing much, i guess” to either avoid the topic, or as to not worry Jane. Jane and Holden would much rather talk about Stradlater, and Jane’s date with him. Then, both of their true feelings for each other come out, and as it turns out, for the better. They both realize that they are in love with each other. We chose to use the song “Love Will Tear Us Apart” by Joy Division beacuse the lyrics are directly related to Holden’s feelings about Jane. The verse: “Why is the bedroom so cold
Turned away on your side?
Is my timing that flawed,
Our respect run so dry?
Yet theres still this appeal
That weve kept through our lives
Love, love will tear us apart again” shows Holden’s feelings about his relationship with Jane, before learning that she is also in love with him. The pictures we chose also have an importance. First, the little cartoon at top implies Holden’s inner feelings toward her. He knows he will always have these strong feelings for Jane. Then, above, is the picture of two little children playing checkers. When Holden tells Stradlater about Jane, Holden tells him about how they always used to play checkers together, and how she would always line up her kings in the back row, and not touch them. This is important because it exemplifies Holden’s love, because he always notices all the little things about her, and not just her appearance as Stradlater would. And the picture below is just an idea of what Jane and Holden would be like together. Notice the smiles on both their faces, and how comfortable they are together. Love brings happiness, and with happiness comes comfort.
