We Bombed In New Haven
EPUB EBook by Joseph Heller
EBook DescriptionThis is not nearly as entertaining as Catch- EPUB22 (but then again, little is). We Bombed In New Haven EPUB EBookThere were a few great laugh-out-loud moments towards the beginning, but humor is not sustained throughout.
The reason I "really liked it" is that I would have to classify it as the first postmodern play I have ever read.In many ways, it is a meta-play—the actors address the audience, acknowledge that they are actors, and Heller even has them use their real names.This reinforces the idea that soldiers at war are more often than not just kids surreally playing in an all too real environment.In war, like in a play, life loses its value; download; orders are followed without regard to reason or logic; the vast majority of people sit idly by while sons are sent off to die.Like today, war is no more real for most people than a play—we go on with our daily lives unaffected by the young men being sent to their slaughter for often immoral, or at best ambiguous, reasons.Becuase of the unique nature of the play, it is as relevant today as it was 40 years ago.The setting is "always present, the exact day and time the play is being performed [in:] the theater city and counry in which the play is performed."Talk about timeless.
It is a play I would very much like to see performed. Like this book? Read online this: Play-By-Play Mountain Biking, I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue.
