Ray Bradbury on his popular use in schools

"Teachers [teach my books in school b]ecause I speak in tongues. I write metaphors. Every one of my stories is a metaphor you can remember. The great religions are all metaphor. We appreciate things like Daniel and the lion’s den, and the Tower of Babel. People remember these metaphors because they are so vivid you can’t get free of them and that’s what kids like in school."
-- Ray Bradbury from a Paris Review interview
