- Catch-22 becomes more than what is seen on the cover. Through Catch-22 Joseph Heller permeates the idea that there is no single definitive truth, that the world is the form of a continual clash of truths. Heller permeates his ideas of existentialism throughout the novel.
- Satire is often used by writers to express their discontent towards a subject in a humorous way. Joseph Heller’s novel, Catch-22, satirizes war and its implications on society and man himself. Heller reveals the dehumanizing aspect of war, not the glory of it.

- The name of the novel I read is Catch-22 by Joseph Heller. This novel?s uniqueness makes it hard to classify but I would classify it as an anti-war novel. The main theme of the novel is one of hope and freedom from the barbaric grasp of war. Heller uses World War II as an almost invisible framework in which he places a number of vaguely related stories presented in no particular chronological order, although the final narrative does tie them all together.
- The threat of death keeps him going. He is not insane. So who is insane, the reader, the writer? I don?t feel that I can answer that. If anything, I think all of the above. It is neat to see how one would act when faced with death. I think what Heller was trying to say is that when someone knows they are dying, nothing makes sense to them.
- Lieutenant Milo Minderbinder is in charge of the mess halls at a military base on the island of Pianosa. There he builds his own syndicate, which sells food to the personnel. Though his superiors are impressed with the work he does, other people, including Yossarian, are outraged by some of his ruthless, sometimes even crooked business practices.
- Catch 22, which was written by Joseph Heller in 1961, is an accurate zeitgeist novel that portrayed the feeling of the counter culture in the United States that was coinciding with events such as the Korean and Vietnamese Wars. Catch 22 takes place in Italy during World War II and the novel follows around the main character, Yossarian, who is as sane as one can be situated in an insane world.
- The first stroke of Heller’s deft touch is his presentation of outrageous characters, acting outrageously. From the first chapter, we are presented with a slew of unbelievable characters whose actions and ideologies are uproariously funny, and horrifically disturbing.
- Although not originally well received, Edgar Allan Poe, became one of the most influential literary writers in American history. As a child, he wrote numerous poems, many which were later published. As a young adult he focused much of his attention on short fiction.
- The novel opens in a hospital ward with Yossarian meeting the chaplain. Yossarian seems to enjoy confusing the chaplain and causing him trouble although he “fell madly in love with him” (15) We meet a few other characters, none too significant at this point.
- Satire is often used by writers to express their discontent towards a subject in a humorous way. Joseph Heller’s novel, Catch-22, satirizes war and its implications on society and man himself.
- Although Nathaniel Hawthorne s The Scarlet Letter is primarily the story of an adulteress atoning for her sin and conquering the insignia which brings torment to her spirit, the quest of the partner in her sin, Arthur Dimmesdale, is no less important and even more painful.
- In the books, Slaughter House 5 by Kurt Vonnegut and Catch 22 by Joseph Heller there are many themes that at first don?t appear to be related but once given a closer look have striking similarities. Both books are about one mans experience through World War II, one being a fighter pilot and another being a soldier.
- Have you ever personally thought that fish were an interesting subject? Most people don’t. The majority of individuals consider fish ordinary, routine and insignificant. However with a closer look, you may discover that fish can be extraordinary and extremely significant in more ways than one.
- Both ?Catch 22? and ?Closing Time?, by Joseph Heller, are off the wall, unbelievably outrageous and bitingly funny. But while they posses easy to understand humor on the surface, it is impossible not to acknowledge the underlying themes of social justice that Heller is trying to reveal, both though his characters and through his use of satire.
- On April 26, 1989, the world lost an extremely talented comic genius, Lucille Ball. There are so many things to learn about this extraordinary woman: her childhood, her acting career, and her unfortunate death. Lucille Ball will most surely be known as a premiere comedienne of the 20th century.
- With the assassination of Lincoln, the presidency fell upon an old-fashioned southerner named Andrew Johnson.

Over time there has been a controversial debate as to whether Johnson deserved to be impeached, or if it was an unconstitutional attempt by Congress to infringe upon the presidents authority.
