JAILBIRD VONNEGUT PDF

It is the Sermon on the Mount. Walter F. Starbuck is asked by Richard M. Nixon at a Congressional hearing in why, "as the son of immigrants who have been treated so well by Americans, as a man who had been treated like a son and been sent to Harvard by an American capitalist," he had been so ungrateful to the American economic system as to join the Communist Party. Starbuck replies: "Why?

Jul 20, Lyn rated it really liked it Not one of the better known Vonnegut novels, and significantly different than most of his other collection. This is perhaps his most serious work. Jailbird lacks the absurdist bent characterized by so much of his other satire, and is conspicuously somber throughout most of the book, though it still features Vonneguts fast style and light approach. This might also be his most politically dogmatic work, eschewing his ubiquitous humor and playful wisdom with a staid, thoughtful passion for rights Not one of the better known Vonnegut novels, and significantly different than most of his other collection.

This might also be his most politically dogmatic work, eschewing his ubiquitous humor and playful wisdom with a staid, thoughtful passion for rights needing to be championed. All the same, he tackles some heavy subjects and embraces the themes with a mature, though still wry humor. My own vote would go to Breakfast of Champions, one of my all-time favorite books.

It has a style and charisma all its own. Vonnegut would likely have identified himself as a socialist. He famously invited graduating college students to dedicate their lives to a socialist government. Christianity and socialism alike, in fact, prescribe a society dedicated to the proposition that all men, women, and children are created equal and shall not starve.

Vonnegut introduces Walter F. Starbuck as our narrator and protagonist. Walter is writing his memoirs after having served time in prison for his involvement in Watergate. Interestingly, Watergate was perhaps my earliest political memory. And so on. Vonnegut also gives us a colorful description of the labor movements throughout the twentieth century. Highly recommended.
