Catcher in the Rye- stream of consciousness

Panthers1 4 Rep.

Are there examples of “stream of consciousness” in Salinger’s Catcher in the Rye?

The narrative of Catcher in the Rye is seemingly inspired by the stream of consciousness form of writing, meaning that Holden’s story, his thoughts, and events are relayed to the reader through Holden’s own perspective.  With that being said, in “true” stream of consciousness form, punctuation isn’t always used correctly, there may be fragmented sentences and other random thoughts, etc.
