The Veldt Summary
The Hadley family lives in an automated house called “The Happylife Home”, filled with machines that aid them in completing everyday tasks, such as tying their shoes, bathing themselves, or even cooking their food. The two children, Peter, and Wendy become fascinated with the “nursery”, a virtual reality room able to reproduce any place they imagine. The parents, George and Lydia, begin to wonder if there is something wrong with their way of life. Lydia tells George, “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.” They are also perplexed and confused that the nursery is stuck in an African setting, with lions in the distance, eating a dead figure. There they also find recreations of their personal belongings and hear strangely familiar screams. Wondering why their children are so concerned with this scene of death, they decide to call a psychologist.
