Bradbury uses unusual syntax in the story to represent Montag's thoughts for example, “One drop of rain. Clarisse. Another drop. Mildred. A third. The uncle. A fourth. The fire tonight…” He also uses some imagery like “The fire gusing up in a volcano” and “The little mosquito-delicate dancing hum in the air, the electrical murmur of a hidden wasp snug in its special pink warm nest.” Also metaphors like “but instead he stood there, very cold, his face a mask of ice” which is the comparison between his face and a mask of ice. Another one is “a book is a loaded gun in the house next door” that compares the book to a loaded gun. All throughout
Many people have goals and dreams they want to achieve, but most of them either fall short or give up on achieving that goal they have. “If Only We Have Taller Been” by Ray Bradbury, is a poem that talks about how the success was usually out of reach, but at the end, the success was reached. In “All Summer in a Day” also by Ray Bradbury, the characters, who are children, try to get more of something they don’t have, which was the sun. Both of these stories suggest a theme throughout imagery to send the message of reaching for something you don’t have.

John Milton once said, “Every cloud has a silver lining.” In other words, in every dark or gloomy situation, something moral comes with it. In the short story, “The Most Dangerous Game,” by Richard Connell, a hunter named Rainsford falls overboard his yacht after hearing three gunshots. Rainsford swims toward the sound and ends up at an island called ‘Ship-Trap Island’. There, he meets a man named General Zaroff, who would do anything for a good hunt, no matter how cruel. In Ray Bradbury’s, “All Summer In a Day,” it has been raining every single day, for seven years. Therefore, almost all of the nine year old children living on Venus only can recall the memory of rain. But, that is changed when the sun replaces the rain for two hours and finally
Everyone belongs to different places, and everyone has a different personality and identity. Identity, or the way you characterize yourself, can change a person’s actions, words, and feelings. People feel the need to belong somewhere whether it 's school or at home or anywhere else. Everyone has different personalities no matter what age they are. Children 's’ personalities are to be nice, have fun and stay a kid forever. All kids want to belong to a family and be somewhere where they are loved. On the other hand, adults belonging and identity are completely different. Their personalities are to be realistic, responsible, and in control or in charge, but they also feel the need to belong to a nice, caring family. Young adults can also have
“ She knew they dreaming and remembering gold or a yellow crayon or a coin large enough to buy the world with. She knew they thought they remembered a warmness, like a blushing in the face, in the body, in the arms and legs and trembling hands.” This metaphor describes the with hope. When the sun came out the children were filled with joy as they ran around outside. They had spent years waiting for the sun; the sun gave them hope.

While these stories have their similarities they both have their differences. The theme of “All Summer in a Day” is to not let your jealousy get in front of your kindness.

In All Summer in a Day, Ray Bradbury uses symbolism, similes and plenty of vivid description to show the hope the children have for a brighter future and their need for change. First of all the author uses the rain to symbolize many things, while at the same time dreaming is used to symbolize hope, and the sun is a symbol portraying each child’s bright future. Similes are also extremely important as they show the desperate hope and need for a bright future. Furthermore with these types of author's craft Ray Bradbury uses repetition. However it does not go along with hope as well as the other pieces of author’s craft that have been mentioned previously. Lastly the brilliant use of description is huge, especially when it comes to the hope, and demand for a brilliant future.

Similarly, in the story “The Most Dangerous Game” by Richard Connell, Rainsford pushes himself to solve the mystery of the unknown rainforest. Both authors create the tone and mood of the story to represent how one should always strive for what they believe.
