Analyze the idea of humor being used not only in the more morose events of the “Poo-tee-weet” book, but in society where tragedy often becomes the target of comedy

 

This is an overview of the prompt. I will attach the full prompt as well. “Poo-tee-weet”: This is the final line of an otherwise sullen book about war, death, and existentialism. That said, Vonnegut utilizes a lot of dark humor and irony in his novel to bring some levity to many of the more morbid events in the book. Much of this stems from the idea that nothing intelligent can be said after a war. Can you analyze the idea of humor being used not only in the more morose events of the book, but in society where tragedy often becomes the target of comedy: do you believe humor is an appropriate reaction to tragic events, and under what circumstances is it most true or false? [Hint: do not say, “it can, and sometimes it can’t.”] You are to write an essay that thoroughly explores one of these topics (or if you have a theme/idea that you noticed within the novel that is not on the list, please let me know and I will see if you can make it work for this paper!), and relate ideas from the book, as well as thorough outside research to your overall argument. Do not simply write a summary of the book, and do not leave out the book entirely. Find a balance to properly tackle the topic of your choice. Make it as academic as possible. Much like Essay #3, follow these guidelines for the best results:-Do not use first or second person perspective. Limited use of personal stories are fine so long as they are written in a way that treats the writer as omniscient rather than a part of the argument. This will eliminate all bias.-Do not use contractions. In academia, contractions are a form of conversation and can only hinder the seriousness of an essay. -Use the most balanced proportions of citations you can. Too little shows not enough research was utilized in the essay. Too much would risks plagiarism. Essay must use no less than five (5) academic sources.-Use only academic sources. Utilize resources such as JSTOR and ProQuest if you are having issues finding credible academic sources. .orgs, . govs, and .edus can be your best friend. Five sources is the recommended amount. -The essay must fall somewhere between no less than 6 full pages, not including the work cited page—which must be done in proper MLA formatting. Too little will prove not enough critical thinking has been done, and too much will still give me an aneurysm, and it will still show not enough succinctness is present. -Proper MLA formatting must be used throughout. Use Owl Purdue’s cite in case you need a brush-up.-You must try your best.
