Imagine if you were in a world that the only way for newborns to survive, the mother and father had to have a volunteer to die so the baby could live. Would you want to live in that kind of world? That is the kind of world that is in 2BR02B by Kurt Vonnegut. The theme/ claim of this excerpt, 2BR02B is life isn't always happy and amazing.

Liberation After Death: Akhmatova’s Shifting Tone in “Requiem” Written between 1935 and 1940, Anna Akhmatova’s “Requiem” follows a grieving mother as she endures the Great Purge. Joseph Stalin, the Soviet Union’s General Secretary, unabatedly pursued eliminating dissenters and, consequently, accused or killed hundreds of thousands who allegedly perpetrated political transgressions (“Repression and Terror: Kirov Murder and Purges”). Despite the fifteen-year censorship, Akhmatova avoided physical persecution, though she saw her son jailed for seventeen months (Bailey 324). The first-person speaker in “Requiem,” assumed to be Akhmatova due to the speaker’s identical experience of crying aloud “for seventeen months” (Section 5, Line 1), changes her sentiments towards deaths as reflected in the poem’s tone shifts.
