All Summer In a Day by Ray Bradbury

Carlos Salmeron

Irony

Most people should have expected that at the end Margot would get to see the sun. Well for all you people that thought that, you're wrong. At the end, Margot was locked in closet by her fellow classmates and she did not get to see the sun

Symbolism

The sun symbolizes happiness because they are happy when they see the sun. The rain symbolizes sadness because it rains when the sun is gone and they are sad when they don't see the sun. Venus symbolizes humanity in a new world because the kids are on Venus, on which they are starting a new civilization. Margot symbolizes that one outsider because she is a kid that doesn't really talk to anyone and everyone thinks she is different.
