Slaughterhouse - Five Literary Term: Anti-Hero

  • Def.- protagonist that is not a hero
  • Ex.- pg. 159, "[The war widow] asked Billy Pilgrim what he was supposed to be. Billy said he didn't know. He was just trying to keep warm. 'All the real soldiers are dead,' she said. It was true."
  • C.- In the kitchen, the woman that had been waiting for them asked Gluck if he was too young to be a soldier, Edgar Derby if he was too old to be a soldier, and then asks Billy what he was.
  • C.- This scene serves to emphasize Billy's role as an anti-hero.
  • C.- Billy's response to the woman's question shows that he is merely drifting through his life and that he does not fit any of the characteristics of a "tragic hero", which is emphasized by the woman's response that there were no more 'real soldiers.'
