- "The Holy Refusal": A Vedantic Interpretation of J.D. Salinger's Silence
- This essay concludes that "keeping in mind the limited scope and inability of literary criticism to ascertain a writer's inner life, we can decode Salinger's silence as loud protest against the current aggressive, competitive action-ethic of the West, its largely materialistic pursuits with great emphasis on social success which whips up vainglory andpride, its acquisitive spirit and penchant for sensual pleasures that money and hypocrisy can buy."
- Contains: Criticism
- Author: Dipti R. Pattanaik
- From: MELUS Summer, 1998
