Later in the story, this causes a major situation, and these actions cannot be undone. All of the actions that happen towards Margot from the other kids, are caused by jealousy. With these actions, we can come to the conclusion that jealousy can get the best of people and it can surely cause problems. As mentioned before, the other kids see Margot as an outcast, and they all look at her sideways because she is constantly gloomy. “And then, of course, the biggest crime of all was that she had come here only five years ago from Earth, and she remembered the sun and the way the sun was and the sky was when she was four in Ohio.
The short story All Summer in a Day is about children growing up on the planet Venus were it rains nonstop. The sun makes an appearance only once every 7 years. Majority of the kids living there don't even remember what the sun looked and
First of All Summer in a Day and Zero Hour there are poor decisions made due to their hunger for power, and things they did not have. One example of this is on page 2 of All Summer in a Day where it says, “‘It’s like a penny,’ she said once, eyes closed. ‘No it’s not!’ the children cried.’ The children would have listened to Margot and tried to understand instead of immediately shutting her down if they weren’t being manipulated by their lust for the sun they have heard about.
If Margot didn’t want to be bullied she should change and think about what will happen based on her choices. Instead of constantly being depressed she should loosen up and have a good time with the other children. “‘And this was because she would play no games with them in the echoing tunnels of the underground city. If they tagged her and ran, she stood blinking.’” This is significant because it shows that the other students have the best intentions at first and try to be kind.
They called him Mr. Freeman and they all loved him! Until that day. Bailey ( her brother) and her mother weren’t home one day, leaving her and Mr. Freeman alone together. He made a bad decision, sexually abusing Maya. She was only seven, it frightened her so much!
This makes the reader realize that the children disliked Margot because they were envious. Another scene in this story that shows the children’s anger is when Bradbury writes “the biggest crime of all was that she had come here only five years ago from Earth, and she remembered the sun... and they, they had been on Venus all their lives...and had long since forgotten the color and heat of it…”
To describe Minnie Cooper’s loss of popularity, Faulkner writes, “She was the last to realize that she was losing ground… girls with whom she had grown up as they married and got homes and children, but no man ever called on her
Emily thought what the girl had done was wrong and she had the right to make her leave the home, it may be cruel but it doesn't deserve a punishment as severe as death. Thomas Rogers, on the other hand, does need that punishment because nothing has happened yet. ¨There was never a word against us. Not a word.¨(Christie, 56). This is completely outrageous, not a single thing mentioned about the fact that he
The children don’t trust Margot’s memory, because of jealousy and lack of respect. To conclude, the short story All Summer in a Day, by Ray Bradbury, doesn’t support the claim that skepticism should be used at all times, and it tells to be a little more leaned
Calphurnia also states: “Caesar, I never stood on ceremonies, /Yet not they fright me. There is one within, (13-14). Here, Calphurnia is trying to say that she usually does not listen to these things but this one has her feeling fearful. But the reason she cannot persuade Caesar is because if her lack of valuable arguments. She only uses pathos and no other techniques to keep him from attending the senate.
