Bradbury displays both ugliness and beauty in “The Long Rain” in various ways. One way he shows ugliness is through the rain. Due to the constant downpour, life seems to be dragging on slowly. Everything is bleak and dreary. The rain is affecting humans greatly. Their skin is losing color and their hands are starting to crinkle up. They are slowly starting to die. There are even corpses who have mold growing out of them. The vegetation seems to be lifeless also. Due to no sign of life, everything seems unappealing and hideous. The rain is making everything unpleasant. Another way Bradbury shows ugliness is through the attitudes of the astronauts and how they react to the rain. Most of them can’t stand the rain anymore. The astronauts are discouraged.
