  • Harrison Bergeron by: Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.
  • By, Matthew W.
  • “The year was 2081, and everybody was finally equal” (Vonnegut 1).
  • “All this equality was due to the 211th, 212th, and 213th Amendments to the Constitution, and to the unceasing vigilance of agents of the United States Handicapper General” (Vonnegut 1).
  • “And it was in that clammy month that the H-G men took George and Hazel Bergeron's fourteen-year-old son, Harrison, away” (Vonnegut 1).
  • “The studio ceiling was thirty feet high, but each leap brought the dancers nearer to it” (Vonnegut 1).
  • “It was then that Diana Moon Glampers, the Handicapper General, came into the studio with a double-barreled ten-gauge shotgun. She fired twice, and the Emperor and the Empress were dead before they hit the floor” (Vonnegut 1).
