The Martian Chronicles help me with homework: Examine the story bridges as individual
- Examine the story bridges as individual pieces in their own right. Do they work well poetically? Thematically? If a reader were to encounter these bridges without the larger stories, what picture of Mars would emerge?
- Look at one of the two stories later omitted from the British edition of the book – “Up in the Air” and “Usher II” – and explain why they may not fit in as well as other stories in the collection. What do they contribute to the collection that is productive? How do they detract? Was it ultimately correct to omit these stories?
