Harrison Bergeron by Kurt Vonnegut
analyzing the short story “Harrison Bergeron” by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. This story still has social and political tones, but it’s set in the future, slightly science fiction, and a little bit dystopian. I’d like for the writer to think about who or what is the protagonist. I’d also like for you to think about how it being set in the future adds to the conflict and situations. What is the real conflict of this story? What is Harrison Bergeron going through and why? What’s the overall meaning or theme of this piece? What overall message is the author presenting.
