At the beginning of the book Heather Hoodhood was the kid that was really mean and only cared about herself. Like when Holling goes into her room to talk about something important, Heather asked “Mrs.Baker hates your guts right?” he nodded “Well then try getting some.” And then she slammed the door. Or like the time when she comes downstairs with a yellow flower painted on her cheek and she states that “I know that I have a yellow flower painted on my cheek. We believe in peace and understanding and freedom. We believe in sharing and healing each other.
Mildred is one of the most controversial characters in Fahrenheit 451. This is because we can’t suggest that she is fully deprived, her suicidal attempt shows Mildred is unhappy. Mildred wanted to be more active in the social side but her intellectual limitations prevented this from happening. She is obsessed with watching the television and is literally watching the world through a television screen. Montag’s wife “Mildred” who is addicted to television and radio did not care about her husband’s feelings.
The people in Eatonville only focus on her light skin, and treat her like an outsider. The people gossip about her and wonder why she left town with Tea Cake, a younger and poorer man.

Upon her return to Eatonville after the death of her third husband, Tea Cake, Janie discovers who she is, and decides to narrate her story with a powerful female voice.

He tells Hales that it strange how at night when she muttering aloud her books he cannot say his prayers out loud, but when she stops he can pray again. This makes Hale very suspicious of Martha Corey for witchcraft, thinking that it is her spirit that is casting out at her husband so that he may not say his prayers.
Even though she is screaming about discipline and order, the patients continue to ignore her pleas and sit in front of the television watching nothing. The small act of rebelling and Ratched losing signifies that even though McMurphy’s achievement was small, ruining the combine brings hope back to the patients that there is a slight chance they can save themselves from total destruction. Nurse Ratched emitting the fog to continue running a perfect “combine” has caused a continuous destruction of the patient’s life, and with McMurphy on their side, the patients have a slight chance of saving themselves from Nurse Ratched and the combine
A large theme within Bradbury’s writing is, people are dispensable. Mildred Montag, the protagonist’s wife, is a morbidly depressed woman who is one of the many victims at the heart of this truth. With not much of a connection to her husband, she turns to technology to help numb her. She is constantly listening to her “seashells,” our equivalent of earbuds, blocking out who and what is happening around her or engaging with the television instead of spending time with real people. When her and her friends meet, they sit in her parlor, in front of the technology, and socialize that way, which highlights another important theme.
From the beginning Stanley has doubted Blanche, this is seen as he went through Blanche's things with Stella, questioning her belongings, “has she got this stuff out of teacher's pay?”(2.33). Stanley continues to impose his reality onto Blanche, which causes her more anxiety relying more and more on herself to create more of an illusion by creating an admirer for herself, saying that she ended it with Mitch because she does not deserve “deliberate cruelty”, and crating this alter ego for herself as being pure. While Stella is in the hospital, he and Blanche are left alone for the night as she continues bragging about her admiration coming from Sheep Hunt Leigh and how she just got a wire from him. Stanley catches her in her life, finally tearing apart Blanche's illusions. Although Stanley has been a threat to her through his suspicion and empowering masculinity over her, the last scene is where he finally takes final control over her, or symbolically where reality has a final triumph over her illusions.
Her coat is dilapidated, with “sad little eyes” (Mansfield, 328) and a nose that isn’t “at all firm” (328), and her life is also deteriorated in a similar manner. She lives alone, in a “little dark room” (331) and does odd jobs to maintain financial stability. She does, however, rationalize that her fur is fine, saying “never mind- a little dab of black sealing-wax” (328) will fix the nose, and also deludes herself into thinking that her life is full of wonderment and importance. She fantasizes about telling the invalid man she reads the newspaper to that he is “having the paper read to him by an actress” (330),
The repetitive nature of the main character’s attempts to win his girlfriend back really remind me of the cycle of events that is characteristic of fairy tales. He tries to get Kim back, “I can win her back...I know what to do...I will use my patience...my complex problem-solving skills… I will cook with gas,” he says as he cleans the apartment, but he is met with indifference, “I can’t believe you cleaned,” Kim says right before she goes out to hook up with the caveman (p 541). “I do my best to act all patient and evolutionarily superior,” but Kim only “takes it all for granted...wandering away from the house without explanation” (p 542). Shortly after, it all falls apart, like we know it
The narrator attempts to release the alleged woman from the wallpaper, can be understood as the narrator’s attempt to release herself and express her imagination. We see that the narrator is an imaginative, highly expressive woman. She remembers her peculiar imagination as a child. Yet as part of her cure, her husband forbids her to exercise her imagination in any way. Both her reason and her emotions boil, and she turns her imagination onto the seemingly neutral object—the wallpaper—in an attempt to ignore her growing frustration.

Not even for her ill husband would she turn off let alone turn down a program she was not even actively watching. Place higher value over an inattimate than one 's own spouse is clearly inhumane and lacks compassion. Mildred even called the actors on her program her family demonstrating just how much the characters on a show meant to her. The distraction of her so called family eventually lead to her death because “the family pratted and chatted and said her name and smiled at her and said nothing of the bomb” (Bradbury, 152). Essentially Mildred used her “family” as a distractions from her problems.
