Slaughterhouse-Five

  

by Kurt Vonnegut

Slaughterhouse-Five Chapter 6, Section 17 Summary

  • The trip to Dresden is actually really nice: the prisoners have been fed and they have lots of cigarettes with them.
  • They pull in to Dresden, which is the most beautiful city many of them have ever seen.
  • Billy Pilgrim thinks Dresden looks like a Sunday School illustration of Heaven.
  • Someone behind him—the narrator—says that it looks like Oz.
  • (Which it really does—check out these images.)
