  • African Veldt
  • He stepped into Africa. How many times in the last year had he opened this door and found Wonderland, Alice, the Mock Turtle, or Aladdin and his Magical Lamp, or Jack Pumpkinhead of Oz, or Dr. Doolittle, or the cow jumping over a very real-appearing moon. All the delightful contraptions15 of a make-believe world. How often had he seen Pegasus flying in the sky ceiling, or seen fountains of red fireworks, or heard angel voices singing.[70]But now, is yellow hot Africa, this bake oven with murder in the heat. Perhaps Lydia was right. Perhaps they needed a little vacation from the fantasy which was growing a bit too real for ten-year-old children. It was all right to exercise one’s mind with gymnastic fantasies, but when the lively child mind settled on one pattern...? It seemed that, at a distance, for the past month, he had heard lions roaring, and smelled their strong odor seeping16 as far away as his study door. But, being busy, he had paid it no attention.George Hadley stood on the African grassland alone. The lions looked up from their feeding, watching him. The only flaw to the illusion was the open door through which he could see his wife, far down the dark hall, like a framed picture, eating her dinner abstractedly.
  • The authors description of and emphasis on how great their home was showed how much George Hadley was satisfied with his large and expensive purchase of the Happy-Life Home.
  • Kitchen
  • The quote suggests that the children were spending too much time on Africa and has been affecting them physically and mentally which supports the message that too much of anything isn't good for anyone.
  • Living Room
  • The quote reveals how realistic the African veldt was and how the children's imagination was getting too out of control which develops the idea that too much of something isn't good for anyone.
  • Bedroom
  • The quote suggests that the children were too obsessed with the African veldt and it affected their behavior and actions towards their parents which supports the message that too much of anything isn't good for anyone.
  • At dinner they ate alone, for Wendy and Peter were at a special plastic carnival across town and had televised home to say they’d be late, to go ahead eating. So George Hadley, bemused,12 sat watching the dining-room table produce warm dishes of food from its mechanical interior.As for the nursery, thought George Hadley, it won’t hurt for the children to be locked out of it awhile.

  • This quote reveals how much the children rely on the nursery and also how spoiled they were by their spoiled parents.
  • “Father?” said Peter.“Yes.”Peter looked at his shoes. He never looked at his father any more, nor at his mother. “You aren’t going to lock up the nursery for good, are you?”“That all depends.”[150]“On what?” snapped Peter.“On you and your sister. If you intersperse24 this Africa with a little variety — oh, Sweden perhaps, or Demark or. China…”“I thought we were free to play as we wished.”“You are, within reasonable bounds.”“What’s wrong with Africa, Father?” “Oh, so now you admit you have been conjuring25 up Africa, do you?”“I wouldn’t want the nursery locked up,” said Peter coldly. “Ever.”“Matter of fact, we’re thinking of turning the whole house off for about a month. Live sort of a carefree one-for-all existence.”“That sounds dreadful! Would I have to tie my own shoes instead of letting the shoe tier do it? And brush my own teeth and comb my hair and give myself a bath?”“It would be fun for a change, don’t you think?”[160]“No, it would be horrid.26 I didn’t like it when you took out the picture painter last month.”“That’s because I wanted you to learn to pain all by yourself, son.”“I don’t want to do anything but look and listen and smell; what else is there to do?” “All right, go play in Africa.”“Will you shut off the hosometimsoon? [165]“We’re considering it.”
  • This quote reveals how much the parents rely on technology to do everything for them which causes them to be spoiled, lazy, and irresponsible with their money and time.
  • “But I thought that’s why we bought this house, so we wouldn’t have to do anything?”55]“That’s just it. I feel like I don’t belong here. The house is wife and mother now, and nursemaid. Can I compete with an African veldt? Can I give a bath and scrub the children as efficiently or quickly as the automatic scrub bath can? I cannot. And it isn’t just me. It’s you. You’ve been awfully nervous lately.”“I suppose I have been smoking too much.”“You look as if you didn’t know what to do with yourself in this house, either. You smoke a little more every morning and drink a little more every afternoon and need a little more sedative11 every night. You’re beginning to feel unnecessary too.”
