Why Do You Think Kurt Vonnegut Included Himself as a Minor Character in the Novel Slaughterhouse-Five?
In the interview in The Daily Show to Jon Kurt Vonnegut announced “We`re terrible animals. I think that the Earth’s immune system is trying to get rid of us, as well it should”(Organization). From Vonnegut`s point of view, the war is the greatest form of absurdity, and I think with these words Kurt Vonnegut shown his attitude to people who started The World War II, who supported an idea of it. His novel is full of absurdity, the unreality of events, time traveling, and aliens from Tralfamador. Among all these absurd events there is one period of time that is real, it is war period of time. In this autobiographical period of time, we can notice our author as a minor character.
