Bluebeard, the Autobiography of Rabo Karabekian — is a novel by best-selling author Kurt Vonnegut.
Sinobrody (Wielka Kolekcja Bajek)
It is told as a first person narrative and describes the late years chadles fictional Abstract Expressionist painter Rabo Karabekianwho first appeared as a minor character in Vonnegut’s Breakfast of Champions Circumstances of the novel bear rough resemblance to the fairy tale of Bluebeard popularized by Charles Perrault.
Karabekian mentions perrau,t relationship once in the novel. At the opening of the book, the narrator, Rabo Karabekianapologizes to the arriving guests: He shares the lonely home with his live-in cook and her daughter, Celeste.
One afternoon, Circe Berman wanders onto Karabekian’s private beach. When he reaches out to greet her, she catches him by surprise with the forward statement “Tell me how your parents died. After a drink and supper, Karabekian invites her to stay with him, as Paul Slazinger does. After a time, he begins to find her charm ” manipulative “, cnarles she typically gets her way.
Berman does not respect his abstract art collection, including works by Jackson Pollock.
She explores every inch of Karabekian’s home, constantly asking him questions. The only place that is off-limits to her is the potato barn. The potato barn is the home of Karabekian’s studio and holds his “secret”. The barn has no windows, and Karabekian has gone through the trouble of nailing one end shut and immobilizing the other with six padlocks. The mystery of the potato barn has enticed collectors to make outrageous offers and to raise suspicions of stolen masterpieces.
Upon help from Berman, Karabekian comes to a realization in his life, that he was merely afraid of people, and opens the painting in the potato barn to the public. A number of critics have suggested that the possibility of creating art with meaning is a major theme in Bluebeard.
According to David Rampton in “Studies in Contemporary Fiction,” Circe Berman’s approaching Rabo with the challenge of making meaningful, moral art is Vonnegut himself directly addressing meaninglessness in art by asking for “committed art. Donald Morse said that Karabekian’s accomplishment in the novel is realising that “through self-acceptance, and the serious use of imagination and creativity, human beings can become reconciled to their weaknesses while still remaining outraged at human greed.

Other themes that critics have discussed are Survivor’s syndromefamily, and relationships with women. One critic wrote that Rabo escapes the Survivor’s syndrome that his parents suffered from by painting “Now It’s the Women’s Turn. New York Times writer Julian Moynahan said that Circe Berman sees Karabekian’s main life struggle as strained relationships with women.
Perrualt received positive reviews from many critics. Some considered the novel a milestone in Vonnegut’s career; Philadelphia Inquirer called it “Vonnegut at his edifying best,” and the Chicago Tribune said it was “a major breakthrough for Vonnegut,” and “a new and vital phase in his career. Bluebeard was also met with significantly negative reception.
Julian Moynahan wrote in a New York Times book review that Bluebeard was a “minor achievement” and that Vonnegut “isn’t moving ahead. There were several unique aspects of the style in which Vonnegut wrote Bluebeard. Donald Morse identified a difference between Bluebeard and other Vonnegut’s novels, which was that the protagonist was happy and satisfied at the end of the narrative. Morse also said that Karabekian as a writer is very similar to Vonnegut as a writer, and that the criticism Circe Berman gives to Karabekian about his writing is a parallel to the issues critics have with Vonnegut’s writing.
In the peerrault several of Karabekian’s paintings are sinobroody in detail.
The first is a photo-realistic painting of Sinobgody Gregory’s studio. The second is an abstract painting of a lost Arctic explorer and a charging polar bear. It consists of a white background with two strips of tape, one white, one orange. The third painting is of six deer and a hunter, titled “Hungarian Rhapsody Number Six” which later fell apart in storage at the Guggenheim Museum.
The scene is represented by a greenish-orange background with six brown strips of tape for the deer on one side, and one strip of red tape on the opposite side for the hunter. The painting however literally fell apart when the Sateen Dura-Luxe began to shred itself from the canvas upon which it was painted becoming Rabo Karabekian’s biggest embarrassment as an abstract expressionist. These very panels upon which Windsor Blue used to cover fully became the canvases Karabekian would prime back to pure white and use for his last work locked within his potato barn.
The last painting is the secret in the potato barn. The painting is an enormous photo-realistic picture of Karabekian’s experience of World War II where he and 5, other prisoners of war, gypsies, and concentration camp victims were dumped in a valley when the German forces realized that the war was lost. The painting, which becomes enormously successful as a tourist attraction, is meant to be the only painting that Karabekian created which contained “soul”.
