“Fahrenheit 451” uses a lot of imagery to portray the features of the wrong society and the people live in the condition. It makes me think of the lyrics from Simon and Garfunkel’s “The Sound of Silence”, “People talking without speaking; people hearing without listening; people writing songs that voices never share and no one dared disturb the sound of silence.” People notice the oddness in the society but yet they never dare or care to change. They wear smiling masks, but under the masks, tears are falling and hearts are breaking. Perhaps the best ending for the censored society is to fall apart and break.

The society forces people to watch their television instead of going outside or having meaningful conversations.

In both modern world and in Fahrenheit 451, there are books, but, in the two different societies, book are also viewed as opposites. In the novel Fahrenheit 451, books are viewed as a danger. In this society where the government has most of the control, book are scarce, only found in homes of people brave enough to risk their lives for these books.

Fahrenheit 451, by Ray Bradbury, is a novel about a futuristic society where books are banned and firemen burn books rather than put out fires. The main character Montag is a fireman who lives with his wife Mildred. Montag ends up stealing books which is against the law especially because he is a fireman; and Mildred is against anything that has to do with books. Society wants everyone to be happy but there 's an alarming mechanical hound in this novel that kills people and is asymbol of fear. Bradbury’s novel shows how a society overcomes the eradication of books through the use of symbolism, motif, and imagery.
Dilemma of censorship: Possessing, reading, and distributing books is illegal in the book Fahrenheit 451. Society is only concerned with instant gratification from entertainment and prefers life in the fast-forward.

Interests other than technology and entertainment are not encouraged and these individuals are often targeted as threats. There is no clear reason of censorship in this future, but fast cars, loud music, and advertisements are all causes of an over-stimulated society, where literature, philosophy, and individual thought are forgotten.

This shows that for Equality to fulfill his curiosity, he will go against his society and do what he feels is right. “We lunged against the door and it gave way. We stole through the dark passages, and through dark streets, and down our tunnel” (67).
