A World With Out Humans

In these three versions of there will come soft rain, I feel like each one is taking part at different times for example the poem “There Will Come Soft Rains” we can see it as a narrator talking to the audience before the war and telling everyone that once its over and the human race dies that nature will not care and will continue its normal ways. we see this through out the poem with the animals doing there normal routine and at the end “And Spring herself, when she woke at dawn, would scarcely know that we were gone” (Teasdale,Sara). While in my opinion the short film by Budet Laskovyi Dozhd was based on the the end of the war. The bomb just went off and killed every living thing. Which is why there bodys of ash are still on there beds ( min 1.25) untouched. While in “August 2026: There Will Come Soft rains” by Ray Bradbury is more of an aftermath of everything, the bodys had been burnt to a crisp and all that remained was a shadow image of what the humans where doing before the blast. Yet in both we see just like the animals in the poem the machine lived on there days like if nothing had happened.
one thing that caught my eye was that in the short film the machine is destroying everything to get the dove, but the only thing that is not fully destroyed is Jesus. Also the dove shows up in a film. Before in “Blade Runner” before Roy dies which gives the idea that now he can be free and in peace. just like in the short film by Budet Laskovyi Dozhd when the dove appears it is the end of the machine in the house. The dove has brought freedom to yet another machine that was a slave to humans.
