  • 1. Stories by Ray Bradbury
    Powerpoint by Lydia Gillispie
    6th Period
    “The Veldt” and “There Will Come Soft Rains”
  • 2. The Veldt
    There are people living in the house.
    The children singled out their parents and murdered them.
  • 3. The Veldt
    A psychologist came to the house to see that the nursery was working.
    Only two people in this story died, as opposed to the many people who died because of the atom bomb.
  • 4. There Will Come Soft Rains
    People don’t occupy the house.
    There was a dog involved and he died from radiation.
  • 5. There Will Come Soft Rains
    There Will Come Soft Rains had a hidden message about the atom bomb dropped on Japan.
    There were no people in the story, only the house and the dog who died. The house was personified.
  • 6. Similarities
    Both houses take care of people.
    There’s foreshadowing in both stories.
    Both houses have a nursery.
    Set in the future.
    People die in both stories.
    Houses served food.
  • 7. The Veldt: Literary Elements
    There is foreshadowing in the story. It occurred when George and Lydia heard screams and also when it said in the passage that the nursery was acting as a surrogate parent.
    There were metaphors in the story. Example: “…the papery rustling of vultures.”
    Setting: It took place in the Hadley’s Happylife Home in the nursery and the veldt.
  • 8. There Will Come Soft Rains: Literary Elements
    Foreshadowing is in the story. When the dog came into the house, he was skinny. He had owners, but he had dwindled down to nothing because his owners were no longer in the house. The dog died, and I realized that if people were in the house, they wouldn’t abuse their dog by letting him starve. They had most likely died, too.
  • 9. There Will Come Soft Rains: Literary Elements
    The setting is in a house that used to take care of people until the neighborhood was bombed. It is the last house standing.
    Personification is the main part of the story. The house was portrayed as a human. Example: “The house shuddered, oak bone on bone, its bared skeleton cringing from the heat, its wire, its nerves revealed as if a surgeon had torn the skin off to let the red veins and capillaries quiver in the scalded air.
