All Summer In A Day

Bradbury's Short Stories

Search the history of over billion web pages on the Internet. He once described himself more simply: "I am a storyteller. That's all IVe ever tried to be. Through this connec- tion of the imagined and the real, Bradbury's fiction challenges the reader to question where we might be headed and what we might learn about ourselves now. Imagine the Future In his fiction, Bradbury encourages his readers to try to imag- ine the wonders the future will hold: "Everything confronting us in the next thirty years will be science-fictional, that is, impos- sible a few years ago. Writer ourselves and our lives?

In "All Summer in a Day," a group of schoolchildren live on the planet Venus with their families. They are nine years old, and they are eagerly awaiting a momentous occasion. After 5 years of continuous rain, the scientists on Venus have predicted that the sun will come out today for a brief period of time. The children have only seen the sun once in their lives, but they were two years old and they don't remember how it looks or feels. To prepare for the day, they have constantly read about the sun and completed classroom activities, such as writing a poem, about the sun.

All Summer in a Day. By Ray Bradbury had been a day, seven years ago, when the sun came out small stories or essays or poems about it:I think the sun is.
you re your own worst critic

In "All Summer in a Day," why doesn't Margot get to enjoy the rare Venusian sunshine?

This story is set on the planet Venus, where the sun shines for only two hours once every seven years., The story is about a class of students on Venus , which, in this story, is a world of constant rainstorms, where the Sun is visible for only one hour every seven years. One of the children, Margot, moved to Venus from Earth five years earlier, and she is the only one who remembers sunshine, since the Sun shone regularly on Earth.
