Yossarian is forced to proceed alone when Milo hears that there are sales of illegal tobacco in Rome.  The entrepreneur is off to gather profits. In a long, moving passage, Heller describes Yossarian's search through the city. He finds the horrors  of man's inhumanity at every turn: Nothing warped seemed bizarre any more in his strange, distorted surroundings. The tops of the  sheer buildings slanted in weird, surrealistic perspective, and the street seemed tilted. . . . What a  lousy earth! He wondered how many people were destitute that same night, . . . how many homes  were shanties, . . . how many children were bullied, abused or abandoned." A nursing mother holds an infant in tattered rags. An emaciated, barefoot boy struggles against the  cold. A woman is being raped. A man is beating his dog. Another man beats a boy just as brutally.  Nowhere does the Captain feel that he can effectively intervene. His spirit is sick. Yossarian hurries

    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.
