It takes courage to stand and take control of a situation. Controlling one’s own life is necessary to get the life you want. If you allow others to dictate your life, you give away your power thus allowing them to determine the life you lead. The following short stories, “The Sound of Thunder” by Ray Bradbury and “The Most Dangerous Game” by Richard Connell, demonstrates what happens when control is in the wrong hands. While “The Sound of Thunder” proves control using fear and the demeaning of men by Travis, and “The Most Dangerous Game” shows its control by the degradation of men at the hand of Zaroff.
In the short story, “A sound of Thunder”, Ray Bradbury used figurative language to make a bigger impact on the story. When Eckels goes into the office he sees and hears, “... A sound like a gigantic bonfire burning all of Time, all the years and all the parchment calendars- all the hours piled high and set aflame.” The author, Ray Bradbury, wanted his audience to have a specific image set in the audience’s head. By using a simile he help the reader imagine how Eckle’s is going to get to the past.
In the short stories “A Sound of Thunder” by Ray Bradbury and “The Most Dangerous Game” by Richard Connell, both main characters are great, experienced and risky hunters. Travis from “A Sound of Thunder” takes people through a time machine back in time to hunt dinosaurs. General Zaroff from “The Most Dangerous Game” has found a new interest instead of hunting animals, and he now hunts people. Both of these stories involve hunting out of the ordinary things and show why each character chooses to do so. Although Travis and General Zaroff are both great, experienced hunters, they differ in the game they hunt, their attitudes towards others, and their motivation for shooting people.
The stories “A Sound of Thunder” by “Ray Bradbury” and “Nethergrave” by “Gloria Skurzynski” were both very interesting to read. However one story had more of the sci-fi elements to it than the other. “A Sound of Thunder” by “Ray Bradbury” is a better example of a science fiction story than “Nethergrave” by “Gloria Skurzynski” because it is more focused on the technology in the story. The setting in “A Sound of Thunder” is more based on the future. The last reason “A Sound of Thunder” is a better example of a science fiction is that the characters are using more types of science for example time travel from the future going to pre historic times of when there were dinosaurs.
The symbols present in “The Lesson” by Toni Cade Bambara, depict the economic and social injustices faced by specific members of society, specifically the children in the story.

Once upon a time, the legends say, there was in the Kingdom of Moor a church whose stained glass windows wept; if you drank the their tears, say the same legends, the gods would bestow upon you a miracle – that which you desired most would become yours. Pilgrims soon began to gather, and if at first their desires were noble, the more people that came, the more tainted the wishes of their hearts were. And thus one fated day the windows stopped weeping; only when one the saints within them judged virtuous approached did they began their mourn anew. Many came, and many were turned away by the coldness of the immovable glass.
While the possibility of time travel does seem exciting and wondrous, it also could be risky and dangerous. In Ray Bradbury’s short story, “A Sound of Thunder,” he uses the cause and effect of time travel to support his theme of not all technology brings good to the world. Society is always hungry for new technology and inventions, even at the risk of harm such as changing time. In “A Sound of Thunder”, the story shows that people are so desperate for more thrills and adrenaline rush that they risk changing the future and their own lives just to shoot a dinosaur- even though the only thing they would possibly receive is a picture.
Although when they return to the future and it has changed, they learn that Eckles had killed a butterfly. By killing something so small, and seemingly pointless, the whole future was different and the consequences were irreversible. The path in the setting was meant to prevent any changes in the future from occurring, but by stepping off it, it created the overall theme of the story. The Setting of “A Sound of Thunder” by Ray Bradbury impacts the story tremendously.
