Reflection of Cannibalistic Societies through Diary of a Madman And the Correlation to Today's Society

When these areas were finally freed from years of oppression, their society was left in shambles and much of their culture was destroyed. Ray Bradbury’s The Martian Chronicles explores this theme of imperial expansion as applied to the hypothetical situation of humans colonizing the planet Mars....   [tags: The Martian Chronicles Essays]

The Power of the Martian Chronicles Essay

- The Power of the Martian Chronicles       The Martian Chronicles is a collection of short stories by Ray Bradbury These stories all relate to the idea of humans visiting mars, but are only connected by the loosest of threads. At times, it can appear as if Bradbury was grasping mercilessly, searching for something to draw together the random conglomeration of human situations his mind had created individually. The entity that embraced all these stories and melded them from half-hour kiddy-show format stories into a great two-hour special feature novel was the forth planet from the sun, earth's neighbor and Bradbury's stage for The Martian Chronicles, mars....   [tags: Martian Chronicles Essays]

Dear Stephen Natale,
     I really enjoyed this book. I loved the way you showed how corrupt a person can become just because of the people they grow up with. This book showed me that your parents play a huge role the character you develop while growing up.

Interview with a character

1)     Johnny why are you so evil?
2)     Who was it that made you become this way?
3)     Were your parents corrupting you as a child?
4)     What is your favorite color?
5)     Have you always been evil?
6)     Do you ever feel happy?
7)     What is our favorite food?
8)     Why is it that you have lost your will to live?

     I am not like Jakki at all; for one thing she is a girl. She is always so strong, she can handle anything Johnny throws at her. I would never be able to run away for so long.
