Description

Norman Mailer, Joseph Heller and Kurt Vonnegut are
three American writers who fought in the Second World
War and wrote anti-war novels based on their
experiences as soldiers during the war. Mailer,
Heller and Vonnegut had to come up with new narrative
forms and strategies in order to cope with the
violence they experienced during World War II. In
order to write their narratives, these three authors
had to debunk earlier war myths, such as the myth of
the good war, the hero myth and the myth of
regeneration through violence as described by Richard
Slotkin. Hence, Mailer s "The Naked and the Dead",
Heller s "Catch-22" and Vonnegut s
"Slaughterhouse-Five" are anti-war novels that
criticize earlier war myths and create new narratives
and new forms of expression in their respective novels.
