Ray Bradbury, "Vacation": a short summary of the story
Writer with a capital letter, who managed out of fictionmake a real art, I remember a lot of readers Ray Bradbury. "Vacations", the brief content of which describes an alternative way of life on earth without people, touched on a lot of topics vital for humanity. The story shows the inability to set goals, communicate with surrounding people, misunderstandings of loved ones, suffering from loneliness and boredom.
The day was fresh, butterflies flutter around,there is an atmosphere of peace and quiet, but people are not happy about it. While the man was repairing the rails, his wife and son went down to the sea and spread a tablecloth, laying out supplies on it. The husband changed into a strict suit, as if he was hoping to meet someone, but there was not a soul around. The family began to make plans for the future, determining by the atlas, in what places they will visit. Raymond Bradbury wanted to convey the loneliness and meaninglessness of life in his story. Vacation (a summary of the mental suffering of both the child and adults), it turns out, too, can get bored.
