Lauraly Gonzalez Mrs. Jarrell Research Paper 21 April, 2017 Billy Pilgrim, A Captivating Character Within the complex seesaw storyline in Slaughterhouse-five, Vonnegut contributed his war experiences in the main character, Billy Pilgrim. Along with these horrific memories during World War Ⅱ , the element of time travel is evident in the novel, allowing Billy to repress these painful memories and follow the philosophy he learned on Tralfamador.

With the progress of the story, he finally had the last surgery which removed most of his tongue and both upper and lower parts of his jaw. It was then imaginable that with the lost of almost half of his face, his life would not last long without the life support. He was dying anyway of cancer, so his wife had no choice but stepped up to help him fulfill his wishes. She persuaded the doctor and made him hasten the death of her husband (Munson, 2009).

I wish that when I walked into your hospital room had been the day that our family let you go, for a person should have the choice “To be, or not to be,” (Crowther). Works Cited Crowther, J. N.p.
