Slaughterhouse -5 by Kurt Vonnegut is a novel that is a satiric reaction to Worl

Slaughterhouse -5 by Kurt Vonnegut is a novel that is a satiric reaction to World War II. The main character, Billy Pilgrim, has become “unstuck in time”. Vonnegut has created a structure of a novel that takes the reader through the experience of Billy’s life as he is experiencing it, with no control, logic, or order.
Remember that nothing in a work of literature is accidental. The author or playwright chose each character, scene, and word. Vonnegut decided to give Billy the last name Pilgrim. The original meaning of the word pilgrim is a person who goes on a journey seeking religious or spiritual understanding. Christian pilgrims journey to Rome, Muslim pilgrims journey to Mecca, and Jewish pilgrims journey to Jerusalem. Vonnegut seems to draw attention to the idea that Billy is pilgrim who is on a journey, even if he did not choose that journey or isn’t aware of the fact that he is seeking spiritual knowledge.
At first glance, this illogical structure seems to be absurd, but it allows the reader to share Billy’s perspective. The situations and challenges the Billy faces are dangerous and tragic, and he has no power to change or prevent any of those events. choose one of the following questions
