Bluebeard
by Kurt Vonnegut
Rating: 4.6 Stars
Genre: Literary Fiction
Price: $1.99

 

Bluebeard, published in 1987, is Vonnegut’s meditation on art, artists, surrealism, and disaster. Meet Rabo Karabekian, a moderately successful surrealist painter, who we meet late in life and see struggling (like all of Vonnegut’s key characters), with the dregs of unresolved pain and the consequences of brutality. Loosely based on the legend of Bluebeard (best realized in Bela Bartok’s one-act opera), the novel follows Karabekian through the last events in his life that is heavy with women, painting, artistic ambition, artistic fraudulence, and as of yet unknown consequence.

Vonnegut’s intention here is not so much satirical (although the contemporary art scene would be easy enough to deconstruct), nor is it documentary (although Karabekian does carry elements of Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko). Instead, Vonnegut is using art for the same purpose he used science fiction cliches in Slaughterhouse-Five; as a filter through which he can illuminate the savagery, cruelty, and the essentially comic misdirection of human existence. Readers will recognize familiar Vonnegut character types and archetypes as they drift in and out through the background; meanwhile, Karabekian, betrayed and betrayer, sinks through a bottomless haze of recollection. Like most of Vonnegut’s late works, this is both science fiction and cruel contemporary realism at once, using science fiction as metaphor for human damage as well as failure to perceive. Readers will find that Vonnegut’s protagonists can never really clarify for us whether they are ultimately unwitting victims or simple barbarians, leaving it up to the reader to determine in which genre this book really fits, if any at all.

Ben, a twenty-seven years old student, and Anita, a plain-spoken, spunky, uneducated redhead, freshly married to Lenny, his aging father. Behind his back, Ben and Anita find themselves increasingly drawn to each other. They take turns using an old tape recorder to express their most intimate thoughts, not realizing at first that their voices are being captured by him. Meanwhile, Lenny is trying to keep a secret from both of them: his ex-wife, Ben’s mother, a talented pianist, has been stricken with an early-onset alzheimer. Taking care of her gradually weighs him down. What emerges in these characters is a struggle, a desperate, daring struggle to find a path out of conflicts, out of isolation, from guilt to forgiveness.

Nutrient dense legumes (beans) can help your body produce and maintain healthy muscles, bones, organs, digestive tracts and brain functions. They are high in protein and can improve your cardiovascular health, help prevent cancer and more. These may be called ‘Super Beans.’ This e-book is a guide to the most nutrient dense beans you can buy. The Foreword touches on why we make this information available and what it can do for you. It also gives you information about other titles in the Superfoods Series. We take a closer look at questions involved with superfoods, such as what is ‘organic’ and ‘natural.’ We discuss how beans and other superfoods, in general, can be combined with different foods and eaten for the greatest benefit. Do you know how fruits, vegetables (including legumes), meats, fats, nuts and grains should best be eaten? We discuss this in some detail in this e-book. Note that most beans should be cooked or sprouted before eating. Some beans should never be eaten raw because they will cause illness. Notations in this e-book indicate which beans must be cooked.
