The Butterfly Effect

“‘The stomp of your foot, on one mouse, could start an earthquake, the effects of which could shake our earth and destinies down through Time, to their very foundations”’ (Bradbury 226). In “A Sound of Thunder”, Ray Bradbury intended to demonstrate that it is essential to pay attention to minor details because they can result in grave consequences.

Initially, Eckels does not understand the consequences of killing a mouse. After Travis’s explanation, Eckels was able to not change the future for now by being more careful with his actions. Travis emphasized, “‘Queen Elizabeth might never be born, Washington might not cross the Delaware, there might never be a United States at all. So be careful. Stay on the Path. Never step off!”’ (227). In this quote, “the path” symbolizes the rules and order. To “step off” means violating the rules by ignoring small details like killing a creature, stepping on grass, or leaving germs behind. These may cause the whole course of history to change by having a chain reaction. Moreover, the importance of paying attention to details is also shown when the sign wrote: “Sefaris tu any yeer en the past. Yu naim the animall. Wee taekyuthair. Yu shoot itt” (236). This English on the sign was weird because he killed a butterfly which caused a domino effect. The butterfly symbolizes a small detail and the bizarre English symbolizes a big consequence. Therefore, this proves that a small detail can cause unexpected and serious results. In conclusion, the theme revealed is emphasized throughout the story by showing domino effects on the future. In “A Sound of thunder”, the theme is to focus on details because it can cause grave consequences.
