Angelfire.com www.angelfire.com/planet/harrisonnvonnegut/ The reason why h e wrote many science fictions due to the influences from his job at General Electric which we can see his knowledge from his novel, Slaughterhouse-Five and Breakfast of Champions. He likes to write dark horror due to his mother's death on Mother's day, ever since he had to suffer from this dark memory and he was really scared of women. He was a anti-authoritarianism person which was reflected in all of his novels. He also had mental problems himself.
I wouldn't use this website for a essay or project because the website doesn't look reliable. The website name also doesn't look like it was created by a reliable authority, institution, or author.
www.social-europe.eu/2011/03/equality-and-the-good-society/ This website, as you can see from the title, basically talks about equality and the good society. The reason why I chose this website is because, the story “Harrison Bergeron” is basically talking about equality and the website above is related to the story by talking about “equality.”
www.youtube.com/watch?v=v-Nz22DXMEk People with some kind of disability (physical handicap) are always being judged, and the people might think that it is unfair to have some kind of handicap whereas most people are just normal. After visiting the website, if I was the author, I would probably ask myself, “What if people that are not fair (not equal) wears handicap?” That kind of question influenced the author to write the story.
www.lawofthefuture.org/blog/ After two guesses above, when the author saw this website, he might have wondered the laws in the future and ended up with writing a story about the law that makes unequal people wearing a handicap. That could have influenced him to write this story. Also, if he didn’t like the laws at his time, and he saw this website, he might have thought of making his own laws.
