Dandelion Wine
Ray Bradbury
Contributed by Loretta Ingwersen
Chapter 34

Tom is outside, counting the number of times the cicada buzzes to calculate the exact temperature. Douglas looks at the thermometer on the porch and reads the temperature on it. Tom is angered by this, saying it’s the inside temperature and not the outside. Douglas considers this and joins his brother in the counting.


We see another example of science versus nature, where Tom engages in the simple wonder of the cicadas and a basic formula. It takes time for Douglas to realize the importance of this.
