The poem illustrates one man’s honesty towards himself. He says, “I have to live with myself, and so/ I want to be fit for myself to know/ I want to be able, as days go by/Always to look myself straight in the eye” (lines 17-18).

The poem illustrates one man’s honesty towards himself.

I have to live with myself, and so,

I want to be fit for myself to know,

I want to be able, as days go by,

Always to look myself straight in the eye:

I don’t want to stand, with the setting sun,

And hate myself for things I’ve done. (lines 28-33)

Guest illustrates how self-respect is a necessity for life.

 

Quoting from the novel:

Holden Caufield admits that he is a “terrific liar” (11). He fails at being honest not only with others, but with himself.
