The other children in her class are jealous of her. A very good lesson in the story is that if you let jealousy get to you it will hurt you as well as others. From the beginning, the details show that the kids are in a lot of pain because of their jealousy over Margot. The Sun is the reason why they are painfully jealous of Margot. She has seen the Sun every for many years while these kids only get to see the Sun every seven years for only an hour.
All the kids are from Venus, except for Margot, who lived on Earth until she was four, and she remembers what the sun looks like. This makes the kids jealous because they want to know what the sun looks like so badly and to know someone else already knows makes them even more jealous of her since she got to see it and they didn’t. In the song “Mr .Brightside” by The Killers, the guy goes on a date with
There are many examples of jealousy in All Summer in a Day, but this event is perhaps the biggest and most important to the story. Going back to the last paragraph, I wrote about the scene where the kids locked Margot in the closet, and I described that scene as an act of betrayal. Even though that scene is an act of betrayal, I think the scene is also an act of jealousy. If the kids were not jealous of Margot, they would have never locked her in the closet. If the kids had decided to just be jealous and not take action, Margot would have still gotten to see the sun.
After the class had been reading about the sun for a week, Margot shares her poem, a memory of the sun; “I think the sun is a flower, the blooms for just one hour.” Though, the class instantly waved it as being false, and not even her own work. With this, it shows that they refused to see her point of view in loving the sun, and Margot understandably wanting to see it again. This shows irony later in the story when they are staring out the window still, anticipating the sun’s short arrival. Again in the story, Ray describes the other students in a wild demeanor; “- they turned on themselves, like a feverish wheel, all tumbling spokes.” This shows that their actions are done with no consideration, that they are relentless andrash with their actions. Margot is constantly described as being different or separate from the other kids as well.
She would always describe to the other kids even though she knows they won’t believe her.She would describe the Sun as a penny, a stove on fire, and even, “The sun is a flower, that blooms for just one hour”(Bradbury,p.g2). She shouldn’t have kept on talking about the Sun because it makes the other children feel envious. This is so significant, because Margot knows that what she says about the Sun is mortifying to the other children because they don’t remember how the Sun looks like. The lesson that Margot got is to not continue doing things that will make other people annoyed or angry because they will do the same back. The theme of “All Summer in a Day” is treat others the way you want to be treated.
One lesson that this story suggests is that if you get caught up in your own jealousy, you can end up hurting others. In the beginning, the details in the story show the children’s immense jealousy toward Margot. In one scene, Bradbury describes how the children often dream about the sun. The text says, “they were dreaming and remembering gold or a yellow crayon or a coin large enough to buy the world with.” This connects to the idea that the children are jealous because the fact that they are dreaming about the sun means that they are grieving the sun. This makes the reader realize that the children disliked Margot because they were envious.
What is are the reasons that drives them to hate, why would someone want to have that kind of gloomy bad intention about someone, because that would turn people to be more violence, after all, violence can led to death in some causes. One of the common thing that make people hate other parson is jealousy. Jealousy is an ugly monster with a red eyes that seek slowly into our heart and grow by the suspicion. I can write five pages and more stories about jealousy, it is really common feeling that lead to a disaster if no one stops it. A husband may feel jealous about his wife talking to other man without having a thought of cheating with a pure heart, that would lead the wife to want a divorce because the husband will start to lose faith in her when she did not do anything wrong.
Another emotion that jealousy can spark is lust. If you see somebody that has more money you want to be like them, you work hard to get to that point in life. In, The Great Gatsby, Tom wanted a different woman because she had better looks than his wife. So he cheated on her with another married woman. Jealousy pushed them to cheating on their spouse, which is what leads to the decay of marriage and a whole lot of
The story “All Summer In A Day”, a short story by Ray Bradbury, shows you how this is possible. The protagonist, Margot, a nine year old girl and her classmates, the antagonists, took a trip to the planet Venus, where the sun shines once for two hours every seven years. The sun, rain, and closet were the three main symbols in the story. Each symbol represented things slightly different from each other. The theme of the story was jealousy can cause people to bully those who have
Everyone has a particular trait which makes them unique and different from others; it can lead someone into feeling either strong and confident or unsettled and distressed. This makes up who they personally are, exposing their true feelings and emotions. “All Summer in a Day” by Ray Bradbury and “Believer” by Imagine Dragons both use this universal truth to uncover some character’s true traits, bringing out their difference in the shadow to an even darker figure. In each story, the character’s end up with a heavy heart, standing out there alone and regretting their isolation. In “All Summer in a Day”, an introvert character named Margot stands out from the rest, hidden in the shadows of the rain.
