FREE ONLINE NOTES: THE MARTIAN CHRONICLES
The Earthian settlers, who continue to arrive and mold Mars.
Settlement by the Earthians continue as Mars becomes home to more Earthian
The progress of colonization continues apace.
Again the progress of colonization: this time, the arrival of religion
and art to better round out the human experience in this new world.
Lumber is sent to Mars as a town is erected, with churches and artists
now making their mark. It seems as if a town from Iowa has been dropped
on the face of Mars.
The reference to an Earthian town being recreated in Mars echoes "The
Third Expedition" but the threat is now reversed: it is Mars at the
mercy of Earthians and not Earthians at the mercy of Martians. There is
also an odd, unintended disjunction as the notion of a beachcomber in
an Iowa town seems odd, at best.
