An adaptation, dramatised by Dave Sheasby, of Kurt Vonnegut's anti-war novel, which tells the story of Billy Pilgrim, prisoner of war. In depicting this experience in his work, Slaughterhouse-Five, Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. not only established himself as an author of literary merit, but pioneered.

What does the Dresden attack imply about American and British civilization? Vonnegut's impulse is to begin Slaughterhouse-Five with his own experience, not with characters or ideas, but the ideas soon get in the way. Two structural possibilities come to mind. The first is suggested in. When people ask him what he is working on, Vonnegut says that for years he has been telling them the same thing- a book about Dresden.
Like Yon Yon son, he seems doomed to repeat the answer endlessly. But the maddening sotig suggests something else - the tendency many people perhaps all have to return to a central point in their lives in reply to the question of identity "What is your name?
But repetitions lead nowhere, especially in a novel, so Vonnegut considers another possibility. He takes a roll of wallpaper, and in the back of it tries to make an outline of the story using his daughter's crayons a different color for each of the characters. And so on. The destmction of Dresden was represented by a vertical buud uf urunge cross-hatching, and all the Jines that were still alive. But it docs not work as a representation of the experience Vonnegut is anxious to write about.
For one thing, characters do not actually come out the other side and inevitably go on ii om there. Like Vonnegut himself, and Yon Yon son, the characters compulsively return, moving back and forth on their lines. And as for the lines that stop, the beginning and middle of those lines are still there. Vonnegut thus comes up with a stmcture that includes both the Yon Yon son story and the wallpaper outline.
It is as if he rolls the wal1paper into a tube so all the characters and incidents are closely layered, so they are in effect one unit, and the reader must look at them from the side. The tube then becomes a telescope through which the reader looks into the fourth dimension, or at least into another dimension of the novel. The story goes round and round yet it still leads somewhere, and yet the end is very close to the beginning.
Vonnegut, in the guise of an oral story teller, asks us to "Listen". He has seen his birth and death many times, he says, and pays random visits to all the events in between. Billy needs to travel back and forth in time not onlv to understand himself but also to endure himself to. I Ic is many personalities, many selves existing together at once. Throughout the novel there is considerable emphasis on seeing things, and there is a ncar continuous contrast between the way the world looks to Billy and the way others see him.
The change that comes over Billy is mainly a result of the way he is forced to look at many things. Of all that Billy is forced to look at, the most significant is what is revealed to him by the Tralfamadorians. The flying saucer becomes an optometer that measures the refractive errors in Billy's outlook and the Tralfamadorians are able to suggest a.
But it is Billy's job as an optometrist S. At first, he is not very etiective. He is able to attend the Ilium school of optometry for only one semester before he is drafted and he is enrolled only in night sessions at that.
And after the war, despite all his success, Billy deals less in vision than in fashion: "Frames are where the money is". This development of Billy's vision is handled in a deceptively ambiguous way. The repetition of imagery together with the juxtaposition of disparate events in Billy's life suggests that his trip to Tralfamadore is an hallucination and that the prescription he winds up. The substance of his trip to Tralfamadore may well be the consequence of reading a Kilgore '"rout novel.
The whole business of time travel and the simultaneous existence of events fonn out of the human illusions that Vonnegut has attacked in his earlier novels. But the point for Billy is that the Tralfamadorians are real. The years of his life there is significant as he is going to live every moment of that life over and over again. In addition, there is the pmgmatic value of his vision - it enables him to deal with the horror of Dresden and to get around the question of "why me?
Are his lenses rose-colored or riot perhaps depends on the reader's own willingness to look into the fourth dimension with him. Slaughterhouse Five, at any mte, gives us a glimpse of what that dimension might be like, and shows us at the very least how it is possible to gain a sense of purpose in life by doing what Billy Pilgrim does while re-inventing himself and his universe.
The process of re-invention is made vivid by Vonnegut's style with its hesitant short sentences and his tendency to return again and again to the same images. His abruptness works well in describing the time shifts Billy suddently goes through, and it contributes a sense of Billy's new vision, his re-invented universe, being formulated piece by piece. But the overall effect of the direct, often choppy, sentences and the brief paragraphs several times consisting of only a few words is to suggest the whirling of basic particles.
What we think of when we think of the structure of the atom is not actually there at all - it is only a model, an illusion. And the same thing in principle is applicable to Slaughterhouse-Five and Billy Pilgrim's erratic revolutions in time around Dresden. But as a model, it is, through its recapitulating imagery, its optometric symbolism, its positively charged sentences, and its telegraphic representations came alive in Tralfamadorian-atomic stn1cture, one of the best solutions we have to the problem of describing the unimaginable.
Of course, no film could document the way Vonnegut confrotned his own ambiguous nature in working out the story of Billy Pilgrim. The character who is developed the most fu11y in the novel is Vonnegut himself. He has established himself, through his preface, as one of the characters in the book. His is a human voice, not just that of an omniscient narrator. Vonneguf s way of dealing with the subject matter of his choice results in a novel that is.
Vonnegut notes in the second page of Slaughterhouse-Five. Far from being the lousy little book. It is a story that still demands indirection of method: 'It is so short and jumbled and jangled', he tells his publisher a few pages later, 'because there is nothing intelligent to say about a massacre. Vonnegut himself performs multiple roles both as creator and creature, author and character, taking centre stage at the beginning and conclusion and also appearing as a Dresden prisoner of war.
On the one hand. On the other, it is also possible to describe him in the complex terminology of postmodern criticism - as a highly experimental metafictionalist structural anthropologist. Surprisingly, these contradictory images of Vonnegut as both simple and complex have coexisted instead of undercutting each other.
Speaking in of Vonnegut's work in the late s and early s, Klinkowitz, wrote that "the academic argument His simplicity stems from his background in journalism, his common sense and lack of pretension, and his desire to reach a wide audience so as to present his concerns about pressing social realities. In an interview he distanced himself from the sort of writers for whom language itself is the primary concern: "I am not inclined to play Henry Jamesian games because they'll exclude too many people trom reading the book I have made my books easy to read, punehtated carefully, with lots of white space.
I lis complexity stems from two sources: his. Closer to a scientifically minded writer like Thomas Pynchon than to Henry James, Vonncgut creates 'science' fiction - even when his work has nothing to do with visitors from outer space. As James Lundquist puts it, in his novels Vonnegut strives "to reveal new viewpoints in somewhat the same way the theory of relativity broke through the concepts of absolute space and time"?
Numerous critics have noticed that Vonnegut's protagonists are often engaged in reinventing reality to suit themselves. Critics of Slaughterhouse-Five have long recognized Billy Pilgrim's ne d to "create", albeit involuntarily, his Tralfamadorian experience. It can be said that it is the human imagination and the value of mental construct that makes self-renewal possible in the novel. So we can say that Tralfamadore is a fantasy.
From the moment Billy comes "unstuck in time", he tries to construct for himself an Edenic experience out of materials he gan1ers over the course of some twenty years. Slaughterhouse-Five is not only a fabulation based on sctence fiction but is also a collage of factual reporting and fantasy writing as. Take for instance the last scene of the novel: Billy is in a latrine in a German prison camp: An American ncar Billy wailed that he had excreted everything but his brains.
Moments later he said: There they go. He meant his brains. That was I. That was the author of this book. I had to say something about it". The book is a process of twenty years of this sort of living with Dresden and the atlermath". Slauxhterhouse-Five is an attempt to describe a new mode of perception that radically alters traditional conceptions of time and morality.
Vonnegut discusses about his failed attempts at writing a traditional narrative about Dresden - one with an Aristotelian beginning, middle, and end. Thus while not identical with it, Slaughterhouse-Five's narrative mode is allied with the stream-ofconsciousness technique pioneered by Joyce and Faulkner. Vonnegut's own life, and Billy Pilgrim's, are characterized by an obsessive return to the past. To get to the heart of the matter of Dresden, moreover, Vonnegut felt he had to let go of the writer's usual bag of chronological tricks -- suspense and confrontations and climax.
Thus Vonnegut gives away what would be the traditional climax of his book- the execution of Billy's friend Edgar Derby "for taking a teapot that wasn't his" 33 - in the beginning of the novel. Throughout the novel he intentionally deflates suspense by mentioning in advance the outcome of any contlict he creates.
Vonnegut in Slaughterhouse-Five tries to construct a new form out of the fragments of old torm. Like Christ, Billy brings a new message to the world, although it is a very. And like Jesus he is an innocent who accepts his death, at the hands of an enemy who reviles and misunderstands him, as an opportunity to teach mankind the proper response to mortality.
Both Billy and Jesus teach that one should face death calmly. In the Christian vision the self ailcr death proceeds f rward in time eternally, either in heaven or hell: tor Billy however, "after" death the soul proceeds backward, m time, back into life. As Billy learns from the Tralfamadorians: When a person dies he only 'appears' to die.
He is still very much alive in the past, so it is very silly for people to cry at this funeral. The Tralfamadorians can look at all the different moments just the way we can look at a stretch of the 'Rocky Mountains, for instance.
They can see how pennanent all the moments are, and they can look at any moment that interests them. Billy has now adopted the way of life of Tralfamadorians. In Tralfamadorc everything is difterent from the wuy it is on earth, to the T ralfamadorians 'All moments, past, present and future, alway s have existed. Again, when a man dies. Accordingly, Billy has seen his birth and death many times and pays random visits to all the events in between.
Dilly Pilgrim has encountered so much death and so much evidence of hostility and cruelty to tl1e human individual during the war that he takes refuge in an intense fantasy life. The literary consequence of the Tralfamadorian conception of time is the Tralfamadorian novel, which consists of "brief clumps of symbols read simultaneously. There is no beginning. This sort of "escape hatch"" from fantasy into realism is characteristic of the sci-fi genre.
In Slaughterhouse-Five, Billy had been in a mental hospital and received shock treatments. During his stay there he had met Eliot Rosewater. His space tnn'cl is simply a way for him to describe the growth of his own imagination out of a Christian, linear vision of time to the cosmic perspective of time as the fourth dimension. This is not to say, howeyer, that Vonnegut oilers the Tralfamadorian attitudes' toward that vtston as final truth.
Tralfamadorians - "real" 39 or imagined - are not human beings. Slaughterhouse-Five is not a novel simply about Dresden. It is a novel about a novelist. By critically examining the line of the story that Vonncgut tells, we can say that Billy Pilgrim is an innocent, sensitive man who C:JH.
Pilgrim ascribes this strange gift of being able to slip around in time to his experience on the planet which has given him an entirely ne-vv way of looking at time. We may take Vonnegut' s word for it that the wartime scenes are factual, as near as can be attested by a sutiering participant. The source of Pilgrim's dreams and fantasies is more complex. The planet that kidnaps him is Tralfarnadore, a familiar reference from Vonnegufs second novel.
At the same time it is suggested that the details of his voyage to Tralfamadore may well be based on details from his real experience subjected to fantastical metamorphosis. Science fiction, like postmodemist fiction, is governed by the ontological dominant. Science fiction. How is one to place worlds into conil ontation? II ow arc these "close encounters. The answer takes a variety of historically-determined forms within science-fiction writing.
In general, as Darko Suvin and. Wells' classic War? Clarke's Childhood's End The complementary topos, that of the earthling's visit to an alien planet, occurs in a number of variants: the simplest, travel to a single other world e. The "zero degree" of the. A classic example is Frank Herbert's Dwte , which constructs an integral, self-contained planetary world, nowehere explicitly related to our earth.
Here the confrontation between the projected world and our empirical world is implicit, experienced by no representative character but reconstructed by the reader. Many space-travel narratives, although by no means all of them, are projected into the future, for the obvious reason that they depend upon technologies which have been extrapolated from those of the present day. In other words, displacement in space is intimately bound up with displacement in time.
They are, in fact, functionally equivalent: spatially distant other worlds may be brought into confrontation with our world, but so may temporally distant worlds, and with identical results of "cognitive estrangement". The mode of displacement from present to future falls into one or another of several categories; that of "future history", which narrates more or less continuously the unfolding of "things to come" e. Olaf Staplcdon 's Last and First! As in the case of the interplanetary topos, there is also a "zero degree" of temporal displacement in which a future world is projected but without any inhabitant of our time visiting it the confrontation between worlds being left to the reader to reconstmct.
Once we have accepted the pseudo-scientific premise of travel outside the three familiar dimensions of space, through the "fourth dimension" of time, there is nothing to prevent us from going on to imagine travel to worlds in dimensions beyond the fourth. Here the ontological confrontation occurs between our world and some other world or worlds somehow adjacent or parallel to our own, accessible across some kind of boundary or barrier.
The most intriguing variant of the other-dimension topos is the parallel or alternate world story based on historical speculation, the "what-if' premise so beloved of amateur historians - and of Borges. This web of time - the strands of which approach one another. What kind of world would have resulted ic for instance. This speculation generates the world of Philip K. Dick's classic parallel-world story, The A fan in the J-figh Castle Inevitably, such a story invites the reader to compare the real state of atiairs in our world with the hypothetical state of affairs projected for the parallel world; implicitly it places our world and the parallel world in confrontation.
And sometimes even explicitly: in Dick's Alan in the lligh Castle, a science fiction writer in the parallel world publishes his own parallel world story based on the premise that the A'-ds had lost the Second World War. The parallel world of a parallel world is our world.
Most postmodernist futures. The motif of a world alter the holocaust or some apocalyptic breakdown recurs. For instance. Angela Carter in e Passion td. Carlos Fuentes in Terra noslra imagines a world that has broken down under the pressure of the population explosion. Burroughs in l11e JVild Boys one that has regressed in the aftermath of the exhaustion of earth's fossil-fuel reserves. In particular, the topos of nuclear holocaust and its aftermath recurs: examples include Gravity's Rainbow, Angela Carter's J!
There are a few exceptions however. For instance, the topos of "future history" occurs in The Twofold Vibration, where in the early chapters Federman rather breathlessly reviews twentieth century history and "premembers" future developments as far as New Year's Eve, Temporal displacement through time-travel, like its spatial analogue, interplanetary 11ight, has been too closely identified with science fiction as such for postmodernist writers to be able to use it with much freedom.
Time-travel, for Burroughs, provides the fictional frame, the motivating alibi, for the slippages and segues. Time-travel also figures in Fuentes' Terra nostra. This intlux of time-travelers goec;; well beyoud the simple confrontation of present and future, or past and present, of most time-travel stories. Prose fiction is a temporal medium.
It takes time for the reader of a novel to absorb its worlds, assimilate its concepts, and perceive its v Characters are developed, and plots untold in time like a symphony a novel changes from one moment to the next and the development of a given passage depends on other passages that have preceded it.
Novelists have often manipulated a story's temporal unfolding by telling a tale out of chronological order, and in that way exploiting the tension among story. Even in fictions characterized primarily by straightforward. From the Tralfamadorians he learns that all things from the beginning to the end of the universe exist in a sort of eternal present.
They can look at time rather as one can scan a wide geographic panorama. Everything always 'is' There is no why". The moment always exists; it is structured exactly as it has to be structured.
