Unstuck In Time With Kurt Vonnegut

« back to classes page
ClassGraphic After 20 years as a struggling author, Kurt Vonnegut became an overnight sensation with the publication of Slaughterhouse-Five in 1969. Through his writings, speeches on college campuses, and many interviews, he was hailed as a counterculture guru, antiwar activist, and satirist of American culture. In this study group, we will read three of his most critically acclaimed novels, while examining how his biography and the time in which he lived shaped his writing. The novels include Cat’s Cradle (Holt, Rinehart and Winston, 1963), Slaughterhouse-Five (Delacorte, 1969), and Breakfast of Champions (Delacorte, 1973). The readings will be supplemented with video from the recently released documentary of his life, Kurt Vonnegut: Unstuck In Time, available on HULU. Study group members will have the opportunity to be discussion leaders.
