Ray Bradbury 's short story, All Summer in A Day, is about the power of jealousy and demonstrates if jealousy is not controlled, it will lead to regretful actions upon yourself. Jealousy is a key topic in the story, and in my opinion, is the main topic of the story. Although, there are other key topics in the story. All Summer in A Day is about a group of kids, who all their lives have been living in a world, Venus, with no sun and the constant sound of rain. Then there is Margot.
Brightside”, the person or people in the story that are in the story are both hurt. They feel pain from the jealousy they have for another person. In “All Summer in a Day”, they locked Margot in the closet because they were afraid the sun wouldn’t come out and they were jealous that she still may be the only one to know what the sun looks like. At first, they thought this was
Margot is the only one in her class that has remembered the sun before. The kids mock her and say that she is lying. The kids say this because they are jealous of Margot. When the sun finally came out again that day the kids were bullies and pushed her into a dark and old closet so she wouldn’t be able to see the sun. My choice of theme to this story really portrays that these kids were really cruel to Margot.
Last, when the kids kept Margot from having fun it shows jealousy. The first example of jealousy changing someone’s actions is where the kids locked Margot in a closet. This shows that the kids were jealous that Margot remembers the sun and they don’t. The kids’ jealousy keeps on controlling them by making them be mean to Margot. Jealousy shouldn’t control people’s actions.
Jealousy leads people to do things that they otherwise may not have done. This apparent in the text "All Summer in a Day" by Ray Bradbury, a young girl, by the name of Margot, has an experience all of the other children envy. As the only one who remembers the sun during a seven-year rain, she has to deal with the trauma of being away from the sun that means so much to her. Consequently, the children hate her for this and treat her with complete disrespect and zero regard to her emotions. Bradbury displays jealousy's negative impact on someone's behavior and exposes human nature's tendency to want what others have with his use of pivotal moments.
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.
Lord Capulet tells Juliet that she is “A spoiled little girl” and he tells her “You disgust me you little bug” and then he calls her a “worthless girl! You pale face!”. Lady Capulet obviously doesn’t spend much time with Juliet because Nurse is always taking care of her and Lord and Lady Montague are obviously not very caring about their son if they let him sneak around late at night.If Lord Capulet had spent more time with Juliet, he might come to realize she is not very worthless or stupid as he thinks. Lord and Lady Montague don’t spend time with their son if they let him sneak through ladies’ windows. They would watch him so he couldn’t sneak out of the house at sundown.Therefore, the Lords and Ladies Capulet and Montague don’t understand love if they don’t love their own children.
Sally and Esperanza were not originally friends. It took Esperanza’s desire for boys to seek out and befriend Sally. Sally is the typical girl whom all boys find desirable. She is described as “beautiful and cruel.” Sally is a really unique character because instead of dreaming the escape of the neighborhood she finds her safety and comfort through sex. However Sally’s father claims her to be “trouble.” Every time her father caught her looking at guys he would beat her.
According to Robert Graves in the book The Greek Myth:1 pages 125 ¨Tyche is altogether irresponsible in her awards, and runs about juggling with a ball to exemplify the uncertainty of a chance:¨. Many people always get my sister and I mixed up because we look alike almost like twins. Trust me, you don´t want to get us mixed up, many people call Nemesis the downfall between us. My sister and I do have one thing in common, we both hardly ever show up when someone calls, we prefer to surprise. My symbols represent me in a way that they can only explain, which they are the cornucopia, orb and the rudder.
He is not a hero because he is shallow. He fell in love with Memo because of the way she looked and not for who she really is. He did not like Iris at first because she is bigger than what he usually goes for, but he started to like her because of how she acts and her personality. Since Roy is 34 and started playing baseball at that age, he is just reconnecting with his youth because at age 18 he got shot and his youth was basically taken away from him. That is why he thinks Memo is good for him because she is young and Iris is not because she already has a grandchild.
Paragraph 2: The children are jealous of Margot. “ ‘Aw you didn’t write that’ protested one of the boys’... ‘I did’ said Margot. ‘I did’ ‘William!’ said the teacher.” The children are jealous of Margot since she saw the sun and they didn’t. Their “solution” to their problem was to ignore whatever she had to say and to bully her. Since the children are jealous of Margot they portray such bad attributes towards Margot.
