Murdock 1 Zak Murdock Mrs. Jacobs Period AB 10-25-06 Catch 22 is a name given to a phrase where one is trapped by contradictory conditions, basically a lose-lose situation. Catch 22 is a perfect name chosen for the novel written by Joseph Heller because the novel shows how a soldier, Yossarian, in World War II is stuck in the war because of catch 22. After having to leave the medical ward because of the Texan pointing out that mostly everyone was not ill, led to the soldiers going back to the front. Yossarian came to hate the war and wanted to find a way out, however he could not leave because he was labeled sane for having stated he was insane. Therefore there was not a way out for Yossarian because of this catch 22 being if one states they are insane one is sane enough to realize one is insane. Not only does the Heller display confusion represented by the catch 22 he also displays themes of guilt and greed throughout his novel.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
