Ther Wilkl Come Soft Rains

The short story, There Will Come Soft Rains by Ray Bradbury, was about a world without Humans. Nuclear war wiped people from the face of the earth and what remained, in a city, was just a house. A self sufficient and working house which was programmed to do certain things without the help of people. Even with the family gone, it remained doing the things it was programmed to do. With this short story, Bradbury tried to show that a world without reason and understanding is a magic world The house and the robots inside are portrayed as people,. But the gods had gone away, and the ritual of the religions continued senselessly, uselessly” (). There are no humans left. Nobody was there to eat the food, to use the car, to read the books, and to listen to the poems. But the house didn’t know that and so it missed the big picture. There was no reason for the house to go on doing the things it had been doing but the house didn’t understand better to stop. The house didn’t stop to notice nobody was eating the food or smoking the cigar or listening to the poems. The house was like this because it hadn’t known the reasons or why it did these things in the first place. The house only knew that it had been always like this so it went on. Later in the story, a fire engulfed the house. The house tried very hard to save itself but in the end, it seemed as though there was no hope and as the fire ravaged on.
