Transcript of All Summer in a Day
Ray Bradbury Settings Characters Plot Diagram Development of Characters Literary Devices The theme of All Summer In A Day is, enjoy thing while they last. This is because the children had to enjoy the sun as it lasts. Also, another theme used was, don't throw sticks if you live in a glass house. This is because the kids were mean to Margot, because she was different. They all learned that everybody's different and that pushing a girl into a closet is not nice. At the end, they regretted being mean. The settings in this short story takes place on the planet Venus. It is probably in the future because there are people on the planet Venus. The story starts in a classroom with children. The characters are Margot, the teacher, the classmates and William. Margot is the main character and she is the outsider in the class. William is the popular that is mean. Margot is like the weird person in the class and she does not fit in with the other kids. The author shows this by saying," Margot stood apart from them, from these children who could never remember a time when there wasn't rain and rain and rain". The author develops this character with her actions. Another example would be when the author says,"Get away! The boy gave Margot another push.
"What are you waiting for?"
Then for the first time, she turned and looked at him". So the author develops in two different ways, The other characters feelings about her and her physical actions. Theme Point of View EXPOSITION The class is looking out the window for the sun. Rising Action Climax The point of view for this
story is a narrator who is not
in the story the narrator is third person omniscient. The class goes outside to enjoy the sun without Margot. Conflict The conflict in the story was that Margot was not liked and so they locked her in the closet and the sun only shines for 1 hour every 7 years The Rising Action was when Margot was locked in the closet by William because she is the only one who was born on earth. Falling Action The Falling Action was when it started raining again. Resolution The story was resolved when Margot was let out of the closet. All of the children felt bad. The author used foreshadowing. You can tell this because you could tell that the students were going to do something to Margot, because they didn't like her, because she is different. "They edged away from her; they would not look at her. She felt them go away. And this was because she would play no games with them in the echoing tunnels of the city."
The author also used Irony. The turn of events was when the students forgot to unlock her from the closet when the sun came out. You would think that they would remember, and when the teacher said "Are we all here?" she would notice that Margot wasn't there, or one of the students would remember. "Then one of them gave a little cry. "Margot!" "What?" "Shes still in the closet where we locked her." "Margot." They stood as if someone had driven them, like so many stakes into the floor."
