The Veldt In America today, people usually have simple lives.
There have been many inventions in the past century that help us live our everyday life. In the story, ?The Veldt?, there are inventions that seem unimaginable just as a dishwasher might have been inconceivable a century ago. Americans are also ?big? on trying to make raising children easier on parents. It almost seems as if our goal as Americans is to make life easier. ?The Veldt? shows that simplicity in life does not necessarily make life easier.I think that the situation in ?The Veldt? is slowly evolving in today?s world.
Soon, humans will have the knowledge and technology to own a house that will act as a ?wife and mother now and nursemaid? (Bradbury, p.199). The house in ?The Veldt? is actually a character.
The house sweeps the floors, does the laundry, cooks the food, sets the table, brushes teeth and hair, ties shoes, and bathes its occupants. The children growing up in this house are completely spoiled. How can these children learn responsibility if they don?t even have to clean up after themselves Even though there is no house children, veldt, house, peter, own, life, even, television, today, parents, make, wendy, virtual, think, simple, shoes, reality, people, mother, go, easier, don?t, child, americans, america, about, yet, tie, though, things, teeth, technology, spoiled, situation, simplicity
