THE MARTIAN CHRONICLES: FREE STUDY GUIDE / SUMMARY
Earthians who wish to exert their influence on Mars.
New names embody new restrictions as the frontier gives way to the rules
Some settlers resist this civilizing process, as it was exactly what
they sought to escape by leaving Earth for Mars.
The progress of colonization, as always; but now also the struggle for
control versus the pursuit of freedom.
Earthian names are given to supplant Martian names. As settlement of
Mars continues, sophisticates come to vacation and to apply more stringent
Earthian rules. However, the growing restrictions meet their resistance
among the more freedom-minded men who tamed this world's frontier.
The naming process is similar to the process of European naming in America.
