Sylvia Plath's Words for a Nursery

- Sylvia Plath's Words for a Nursery Sylvia Plath’s “Words for a Nursery” depicts the embodiment of life through the symbolism of a human hand.

- If individuals are not careful, technology will eventually overtake humankind. Ray Bradbury dives into this theme in his short story, "The Veldt." In general, writers develop their theme by using various literary elements. This is the case in "The Veldt," however, the story's theme is also built through its science fiction genre.

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]
