We are beginning to analyze literature published after WWII.
The following links contain the full text of "The Veldt" by Ray Bradbury. It is an example of a 1950s post-war/cold war short story. The story is the same on both links; there is no need to go to both. I put both on the blog just in case one wasn't working this morning.
A veldt- is a word used to describe an open plain in Africa.
The story was first published in September of 1950 with the title of 'The World the Children Made."
1. Read the story.
2. Answer the following question in one or two paragraphs:
"What is Bradbury's purpose in "The Veldt" and how does he achieve this purpose?"
I want to get a first look at how well you can analyze a short story. Saying "The story is good" or "I was confused" is not analysis.
