How would you describe the painter in the story?
Address the following questions about “2BR02B” in your initial response before addressing the posts of your classmates. Also discuss your general thoughts about the story.
- In what ways does the world in “2BR02B” resemble our current environment? In what ways is it different? (NOTE: I’d rather steer clear of discussions of abortion for this post because what Vonnegut presents here is not the same as our current policies/environment around that issue, and I would rather not get the discussion off track.) Discuss some of the advantages and disadvantages of this world.
- How would you describe Wehling’s main conflict? Imagine being in a similar situation. How would you resolve this problem?
- How would you describe the painter in the story? What is his role? (Not as a painter, but what role does he play in the story?)
- Which character do you most identify with in the story? Why? (Note, I’m not suggesting that you have the same role exactly or that you agree with what they say. Just consider who you have the most similarities too, either in attitude, experience, or both.)
- To what does “2BR02B” refer in the story? What is it a reference to? (think Shakespeare) Why do you think the author made that connection?
