Nately’s whore’s kid sister

Page history last edited by Carolina 11 years, 6 months ago

Nately's whore's kid sister is twelve years old and "attempts to imitate her elders" (286). She often enters the room while Nately and his whore are together like in chapter 23. Nately's whore and her kid sister swear, spit, and pull at each other's hair. This scene is replayed over and over again whenever Nately is with his whore. After Nately is killed and Yossarian delivers the news to Nately's whore, the kid sister aids Nately's whore in trying to harm Yossarian. After the passion of the fight subsides and after Nately's whore reaches for the bread knife again, the kid sister is the one who appears in the door and runs Yossarian away. After the carabinieri turn the whore house inside out, Yossarian makes it his mission to find the kid sister and protect her since she is "just a little kid, and she's all alone in this city with no one to take care of her" (469). Yossarian probably feels guilty, because he pushed Nately's whore out of an airplane with a parachute since she was always trying to attack him. He also wants to preserve, what he feels to be, the last vessel of innocence in the corrupted and paradoxical world.
