O knihe

This book presents a new and individual approach to understanding and interpreting the art and literary work of Kurt Vonnegut Jr., one of the most influential American novelists of the twentieth century, who was famous for blending satire, black humour, science fiction and poignant social criticism in his works. Focusing on his acclaimed, semiautobiographical novel, Slaughterhouse Five and two short stories taken from his short story collection, Welcome to the Monkey House, this work looks at the author's view of the human condition in the modern technical world of the twentieth century in a slightly different light. It attempts to show a very positive, life-affirming message filled with hope that is underlying the pointed satirical voice Vonnegut employs in order to speak about the unspeakable suffering wars, massacres, alienated relationships, and mindless technical development can bring.
