The Desolate Cosmos of Ray Bradbury's “There Will Come Soft Rains” - Ray Bradbury manages to create a highly advanced, dark and desolate cosmos, by including modernistic machines and highly advanced tech, while showing little presence of life and color in his short-story “There Will Come Soft Rains”.
