Question:

What point of view does the Bradbury use in "The Veldt?" How does this point of view advance the plot?

Answer:

In "The Veldt" Bradbury used a third-person objective narrator. Because the reader only gets information about the characters' actions rather than the characters' thoughts, the reader is observing the plot complete from the outside. This creates a shock as the reader begins to realize what is going to happen to the parents.

Question:

In "The Veldt" by Ray Bradbury, what is one possible theme of the text?

Answer:

In Ray Bradbury's "The Veldt," the theme is the danger of allowing technology to replace human connection. This theme is first introduced when Lydia complains that the technology in the house is "wife, mother now, and housemaid." She feels as if she has no role as a mother in her home because the technology in the house can do everything better than she can. After examining the mechanical room, David McClean says that the parents have "let this room and this house replace you and your wife in your children's affections." This, along with the children's willingness to get rid of their parents when the parents threaten to take away the technology in the house, shows that the children truly are more attached to technology than to anything else in their lives.
