    The thing I love best about Kurt Vonnegut is that he was both the ultimate cynic and the ultimate humanist What better character for him to create to embody those views than a Nazi with good intentions Howard W Campbell Jr was an American citizen who grew up in Germany and became a prominent Nazi thanks to his virulent anti Semitic propaganda However, Howard had actually been recruited before the war began to be an American spy who provided vital intelligence to the Allies via codes hidden i The thing I love best about Kurt Vonnegut is that he was both the ultimate cynic and the ultimate humanist What better character for him to create to embody those views than a Nazi with good intentions Howard W Campbell Jr was an American citizen who grew up in Germany and became a prominent Nazi thanks to his virulent anti Semitic propaganda However, Howard ha...

    Vastly underrated piece of black comedy, about a World War 2 double agent whose cover is a Nazi propagandist in the style of Lord Haw Haw Vonnegut says in the preface that this is the only one of his books where he knows what the moral is You are what you pretend to be, so be careful about who you pretend to be For my money, Vonnegut s second best book, running Cat s Cradle very close.It s not just me the great Doris Lessing also wrote once that she couldn t quite understand why this book Vastly underrated piece of black comedy, about a World War 2 double agent whose cover is a Nazi propagandist in the style of Lord Haw Haw Vonnegut says in the preface that this is the only one of his books where he knows what the moral is You are what you pretend to be, so be careful about who you pretend to be For my money, Vonnegut s second best book, running Cat s Cradle very close.It s not just me the great Doris Lessing also wrote once that she couldn t quite understand why th...

    When most people think of Kurt Vonnegut, the novels Slaughterhouse Five and Cat s Cradle immediately come to mind It s a shame thatpeople aren t familiar with Mother Night, a novel in which Vonnegut explores the nature of moral ambiguity and what high minded ideals we sacrifice on the altar of war It s a skillful blend of Vonnegut s trademark dark humor and philosophical musings about human morality as observed through the lens of war To put it simply, this is some good stuff.Sitting in When most people think of Kurt Vonnegut, the novels Slaughterhouse Five and Cat s Cradle immediately come to mind It s a shame thatpeople aren t familiar with Mother Night, a novel in which Vonnegut explores the nature of moral ambiguity and what high minded ideals we sacrifice on the altar of war It s a skillful blend of Vonnegut s trademark dark humor and philosophical musings about human morality as observed through the lens of war To put it simply, this...

    In Stanley Kubrik s film, Full Metal Jacket, one of the most highlighted scenes is where the protagonist is asked to explain the peace symbol and Born to Kill slogan on his helmet His response I think I was trying to suggest something about the duality of man Cannot help but wonder if the writer for Full Metal Jacket had been thinking of Mother Night when he wrote that line One of the darker novels in Vonnegut s collection, but still with the humor and bli...
