    "All the things I am about to tell you are shameless lies." So begins the Books of Bokonon. Bokononism is an original religion that is introduced in this book, Cats Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut. The book shows the importance of religion, even if that religion is "shameless lies". It also displays how people convince themselves that things are better then they really are. I read this book because of a promise I made to my father. I'm glad I made that promise; I just read a delightfully funny and deep tale

    Vonnegut's Cat's Cradle

    • 1195 Words
    • 3 Pages

    Vonnegut's Cat's Cradle I believe that Vonnegut uses Cat's Cradle as an allegorical tale about what will happen to the world if we are not careful with technology that has the ability to end life on this planet. He points out one of the qualities of humanity; that people make mistakes, thus poisoning our minds and encouraging a better world. One of the obvious ways that Vonnegut uses this book to "encourage a better world" would be by showing that the end of world may come from an accidental

Writings such as The Basketball Diaries, "Howl" and Cat's Cradle express concepts of fear, power, governmental control, and death.

    • 2 Pages

    After reading and analyzing the novel Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut, I have come to the conclusion that the religion the book is based upon, Bokononism, fits into Sigmund Freud's criteria of religion. To start off, Freud has a theory that religious practices and beliefs are all made up by human beings based on their desire to ease anxieties. The practices and beliefs of a religion are comparable to childhood neurosis. Childhood neurosis is the occurrence of a broad range of neurotic conditions such

    The Satire of Cat's Cradle Cat's Cradle is, "Vonnegut's most highly praised novel. Filled with humor and unforgettable characters, this apocalyptic story tells of Earth's ultimate end, and presents a vision of the future that is both darkly fantastic and funny, as Vonnegut weaves a satirical commentary on modern man and his madness" (Barnes and Noble n.pag).  In Cat's Cradle, Kurt Vonnegut uses satire as a vehicle for threatened self-destruction when he designs the government of San Lorenzo
