At this Montag has completely changed and is realizing that all of his “friends and family” really don’t care, especially when he says “ Mildred, you didn’t put in the alarm!” But the event of Montag’s murder of Beatty really sealed the deal on Montag’s change as he is now a man of reading and understanding books. In conclusion these series of events caused Montag’s change and evolvement of his personality and beliefs throughout this story. Therefore Montag is completely against this life he used to enjoy and
There is regret because Montag wants Mrs. Bowles to think about what she could have done or regret what she did to get to the point she is at. I think that Montag’s use of pathos and logos in the quote was excellent. Even though the result of the conversation was sad Montag made a strong point and stood for it. I believe that Mrs. Bowles did take what Montag said under consideration but didn’t put it into effect on her life. Montag knows the wrong in society and is one of the activist trying to change it.
(Bradbury 112)” This evidence of what Beatty said proves that he was intelligent and a great analyzer which means he was very good at his job. And once Montag realized that Beatty found out about his seashell he murdered him. If Beatty would have lived then he would have did his job and locked them both up for their book crimes. Montag killed Beatty instead hiding from his friend’s and his
He ended up getting found and someone named Captain Beatty, told Montag to just burn the house down room by room and escape that way. Captain Beatty kept nagging Montag about why books were so important and why he wanted to have a stack so bad. Montag, getting mad, flips the switch on his flame thrower and ends up burning Beatty. Once Montag was gone from the city, he tried to be a better person and escape the man he used to be. Montag, at the end, does believe he is a better character and believes he is very different than what he used to be.
From Montag's’ lack of emotion while burning someone’s house ,we can conclude that he is not really thoughtful or emotional. These observations can not say, however, that Guy Montag cannot change. After this we see Montag walking home at night, when he really thinks and appreciates his job, which in his society is considered wrong. All in all, we are not at all surprised by how easy it was for Clarisse McClellan to destroy his entire life with one small question. Montag Influenced by Clarisse
Ladies and gentlemen, we are here today to discuss the actions of Mildred turning in her husband for his twenty plus amount of hidden books. In Fahrenheit 451, Mildred’s actions are not justified because Montag provided a safe life for her and marriage vows state to stand by your significant other through thick and thin. On the other hand, Mildred was raised in a society that did not educate her in what was right or wrong. She did not want to get in trouble, risking the loss of her “family” who she favored over her husband, Montag. Also Mildred’s actions were justified because, Montag was breaking the law, and even though he’s her husband, she did what she thought was right in hope to not lose everything they had.
In the end, Montag killing Beatty was a helpful act of society itself. Montag started getting curious about books and what was inside them when he started to talk to Clarisse and from when Beatty was able to say specific quotes from books. Clarisse told him that if you rub a dandelion on your chin and the yellow shows, then you are in love, yet when she did it to him it didn’t. This made him think he was really in love with his wife Millie, and as he thought about it more, he realized that he wasn’t. Another thing that Clarisse asked him was if he was happy, and Montag replied in a sarcastic way saying that he was happy.
His fire chief makes him burn his own house down for having illegal books. He is justified in killing his fire chief and running from the law and hiding the books from his wife, because he had nothing to lose and he know what would happen if he was caught. Montag is justified in killing Beatty because he was protecting Faber who was a friend who was innocent. The only thing that Montag did was try protecting an innocent man who was not guilty of anything. Who was helping Montag by asking him things to make him think about and help him determine what to do.
How the government faked his, and their, deaths on tv to satisfy their viewers, that if anything happens to the books of Ecclesiastes and Revelation(chapters of the Bible) that Montag will be the last record of it because of a trick they have to pull up the oldest memories of a person, similar to looking back through a hard drive to find information. They even witness Montag's city being bombed, with only pieces of buildings, distorted in all sorts of pieces, it was only after this when Montag remembered something that he had forgotten 10 years ago: he had first met his wife Mildred, who was killed in the bombing, in Chicago. (CS) In the end Montag leaves his society and begins the next step of his journey: to travel the land searching for others to teach what he has
He is just as guilty as Montag because he read books as well and hid information that was very valid to the knowledge of the people of the society. There is little evidence for the fact that Beatty hid the truth about censorship in hiding books, but with what evidence is relevant, Beatty will be proven guilty for his obstruct actions. Furthermore, the captain kept society from thinking with the help of the government, which didn’t provide the time for thought because it caused many distractions for the people. TV shows were brief and cars were being driven out of control, while no consequences were being thought of. The government didn’t know how they were being played by the powerful Beatty.
