It does, however, provide insight into the aspects of the modern situation that Vonnegut sees as central and meaningful. Perhaps more than any other post-modern author, Vonnegut has thoughtfully tackled why post-modernism, as a reflection of its time, has confused or even destroyed the lines that have traditionally separated high art from low art, things such as literature from things such as science fiction. One of the many tasks Vonnegut undertakes in Bluebeard is not only to accurately reflect his time in history, but also to depict the unique challenges that writing about his time presents the writer. In the process, Vonnegut also reveals the often hidden significance in such difficulties. Bluebeard , being the mock-autobiography of an elderly, wealthy and retired expressionist painter, Rabo Karabekian, presents its fictional author with many of the challenges Vonnegut himself has faced. This in itself is too complex of an issue to be treated fully in an essay of this length, therefore this essay will limit its inquiry to one aspect of the unique difficulties Vonnegut has confronted in Bluebeard, in an effort to illustrate to the reader how each and every aspect within the novel could be as thoroughly examined with insights just as rewarding.

Kurt Vonnegut's Version of the Fairytale Bluebeard: Writing About Writing for People Who Don't Read
Bluebeard, the Autobiography of Rabo Karabekian — is a novel by best-selling author Kurt Vonnegut. It is told as a first person narrative and describes the late years of fictional Abstract Expressionist painter Rabo Karabekian , who first appeared as a minor character in Vonnegut's Breakfast of Champions Circumstances of the novel bear rough resemblance to the fairy tale of Bluebeard popularized by Charles Perrault. Karabekian mentions this relationship once in the novel.
There may be greater noevelists than Vonnegut, but there can be a few, if any, with as much good humour and generorisy. His long-standing affection for his fellow science-fiction writers, a clan still beyond the pale of polite society - 'I love you crazy sons of bitches,' he told them in 'God Bless You, Mr Rosewater' - now extends to the whole human race, whose members also sit well below the salt but, in Vonnegut's eyes, display the same innocence, feckless enthusiasms and general tendency to trip over the furniture. As in many of Vonnegut's novels, the career of his central character matches his own at several crucial points, and this gives his amiable fictions their sharp sting of the real. For Vonnegut the most significant events in his life seem to have been his experiences as a captured American soldier during the Second World War, which formed the core of 'Slaughterhouse 5,' and some moment, presumably during the s, when he realised that the next generation had learned nothing from the trangedies of the war and had even begun to lose all sense of its own past, that great casualty of American culture. Vonnegut's alter ego, Rabo Karabekian, is already a fugitive from genocide. Although born in America of immigrant Armenian parents, he is haunted by their close escape from the first genocide of the twentieth century, the massacre by the Turks of a million of their Armenian citizens. Always aware that he is lucky to be alive, Karabekian grows up during the s in provincial California.
