The Future of Technology

- If individuals are not careful, technology will eventually overtake humankind. Ray Bradbury dives into this theme in his short story, "The Veldt."

This fantastical style can be found throughout Bradbury’s other works, including Fahrenheit 451 and Something Wicked This Way Comes....   [tags: The Veldt, Ray Bradbury, Literary Analysis]
