Catch-22 - Joseph Heller, New Edition (Bloom's Modern Critical Interpretations)















Joseph Heller’s World War II satire, Catch-22, poses the moral dilemma of how to remain sane in an insane world. When it was first published in 1961, the novel not only became a modern-day classic, but it also introduced the Catch-22 catchphrase into everyday vernacular. Joseph Heller's Catch-22, New Edition offers a varied selection of full-length essays, a detailed chronology, and a thorough index that provide an ideal critical companion for readers wishing to broaden their appreciation of Heller’s modern masterpiece.
