Transcript of Copy of All Summer in a Day

One of the types of figurative language the author, Ray Bradbury uses is foil. Authors use foil to certain qualities or traits by two characters being polar opposite of each other. Foil is used in Summer in a Day to emphasize that Margot is very different and shy from the other kids on Venus. Figurative Language The Main Conflict Explanation of the Theme In All Summer in a Day the theme is that just because someone is different doesn't mean you can pick on them. How The Characters are
described the characters are described mostly by how the other kids treat her. They bully her and call her weird. This tells you of her social status. The Main Setting The setting in, "All Summer in a Day," takes place on the planet, Venus. On Venus it rains for seven years straight and stops for one hour after the seven year period. The time period for, "All Summer in a Day," takes place in the future because people are living on Venus. The author uses a couple of different types of figurative language in the story, All Summer in a Day.
That is an example of other peoples action towered her All Summer in a Day By: Ray Bradbury Individual vs. group It has been raining for 7 years straight on planet Venus Margot gets made fun of by the other children because she is different and they don't except her differences. Foil Foreshadowing Another type of figurative language the author uses is foreshadowing. Foreshadowing is when the author of a story gives hints to what is going to happen later. Foreshadowing is used in this story when the author says that the sun only comes out for one hour every seven years, from that it was very predictable that the sun was going to come out in this story. The children lock her in a closet and the sun comes out for once. After one hour it started to rain again and Margot never got to see the sun. Example of Foil "It had been raining for seven years; thousands upon thousands of days compounded and filled from one end to the other with rain, with the drum and gush of water, with the sweet crystal fall of showers and the concussion of storms so heavy they were tidal waves come over the islands." Excerpt of Venus' Rain Time Period An example of foil from All Summer in a Day is "They edged away from Margot; they would not look at her. She felt them go away. And this was because she played no games with them in the echoing tunnels of the underground city. If they tagged her and ran, she stood blinking after them and didn't follow. When the class sang about happiness and life and games, her lips barely moved. Only when they sang about the sun and the summer did her lips move, as she watched the drenched windows." The time period for, "All Summer in a Day," takes place in the future. I would think about 200 years into the future. I know this because people are living on Venus. Example of Foreshadowing An example of foreshadowing in Summer in a Day is, "It had been for seven years; thousands upon thousands of days compounded and filled from one end to the other with rain, with the drum and gush of water, with the sweet crystal fall of showers and the concussion of storms so heavy they were tidal waves come over the islands. A thousands forests had been crushed under the rain and grown up a thousand times to be crushed again. And this was the way life was forever on the planet of Venus, and this was the school room of the children of the rocket men and women who had come to a raining world to set up civilization and live out their lives." Images she also talks about remembering earth setting her apart from her class mates, because of what she says. the author also gives a physical description. Also she is shoved by force into a closet she cant be that big or strong. Point Of View
The Point of View in All Summer in a Day is 3rd person omniscient.
