The Kennedy’s? The Mafia? Overdose? Murder? 55 years later, the death of one of the most famous American icons, Marilyn Monroe, is still a conspiracy. Marilyn Monroe (birth name Norma Jeane Mortenson) was born on the 1st of June, 1926 at the Los Angeles County Hospital. Marilyn never knew her father’s identity. Marilyn was placed in the care of a foster family, The Bolenders, as her mother Gladys Pearl Baker was mentally and financially unable to care for her. Marilyn was taken back into Gladys’ care when she was 7 years old as she eventually was able to stabilise her lifestyle. However, Gladys was committed to a state mental hospital as she had a mental breakdown and was diagnosed as a paranoid schizophrenic. She spent the rest of her life going in and out of hospitals and did not have contact with Marilyn ever again. Due to these unfortunate
In movies, sometimes directors may change a scene or character. In this case, Clarisse from the book is completely antithetical to clarisse from the movie.
Montag sat by the blazing fire, filling every bone in his body with warmth, the same fire that he ran away from. He watched as the red and orange tails of the fire flickered upward, sending a smoke rising high above the clouds. The same fire, in which helped Montag destroy books, homes and much more, was now consoling him. He furrowed his brows, attempting to connect the book of Ecclesiastes to himself, as he did not understand how the intellectuals became a book, when a hard hand came down upon his shoulder.
With a plethora of books on varying subject matters, the world of literature is almost endless. Quality books and authors often camouflage further meaning behind a character, theme or symbol providing a treasure for readers willing to search. Ray Bradbury includes a hidden treasure in his novel Fahrenheit 451 by contrasting two of his main characters. The overall message of the story describes a futuristic society with many technological advancements, and the prohibition of books, where Ray Bradbury shows how devastating a society is with mindless technology and lack of quality literature and interactions. However, by exploring the juxtaposition between the characters Mildred and Clarisse, a further meaning can be found through their differing
Books have a history of impacting the views of the masses, influencing thought and bringing about the most spectacular inventions; the Bible, Uncle Tom’s Cabin, The Republic, and so many more. With books playing such a role in society, it is hard to imagine a world without literature. This is the goal of Ray Bradbury’s book, Fahrenheit 451: to explore a world where reading is outlawed, and to show how books, or the lack of, change the way people feel and connect. The general people who do not read, including the protagonist, Guy Montag, seem discontent with their lives and derive no real joy. Conversely, the readers and the thinkers are kinder, bolder, and humorous; Faber and Clarise, for example, leave powerful impacts on Montag with their thinking. Even those who do not like books yet are well-read, like Montag’s boss, Captain Beatty, are incomplete yet interesting in a way the other characters are not. The connection between books and personality is direct and proportional. In Fahrenheit 451, there is a clear difference in the quality of life between people who read and those who do not, as those who do read seem more engaging, interesting, and generally
Marilyn Monroe was found dead on August 5, 1962. In the room of her home in Brentwood, California. On August 5, 1962, at 4:55 am, the chief of police department of Los Angeles, Jack Clemmons received a disturbing call. His interlocutor was Dr. Greenson, Marilyn Monroe 's psychiatrist, and the message was clear: the actress had died. The police were the first on the scene and found a number of inconsistencies in the testimonies of the two doctors and the housekeeper. The death scene looked neat, and clean sheets changed and the body had been moved. Clemmons did not fail to notice that at that time, Mrs. Murray was washing clothes, which caused great surprise. Mortem lividity not matched by other unnatural posture when police According to his version, he got up and saw that the lights were on Monroe room. When he reached the naked and lifeless on the bed woman was Many people say that his death was due to an overdose. But most people say that Marilyn was murdered. Until now the police and detectives say the cause of her murder was supposedly had intimate relationship with President John F. Kennedy. Marilyn Monroe had relationships with very dangerous and powerful people, who had much money. Marilyn Monroe had a diary where she wrote all the conversations and activities of her life. There were secrets of US State. It is said that the Kennedys were those who ordered the murder of Marilyn Monroe, as her relationship with John F. Kennedy could affect the status of the American government and the Kennedy family, and the information that Marilyn 's diary had. I have three theories about what might have happened: The first one: the Kennedy may have been to keep his secrets on The State of the United States or to maintain the reputation of President John F. Kennedy. The second one: They may have been those powerful and dangerous with Marilyn maintained relations with
Tom Godwin’s short story “The Cold Equations” illustrates how one should think of and become accepting of their consequences whether it's deserved or not. The story is about an Emergency Dispatch Ship, also known as an EDS, with the pilot on a mission to give a group of six men who have a fatal fever. The pilot, Barton, during his mission finds a stowaway named Marilyn found in a small closet on the ship. Marilyn was a young girl trying to go to Mimir, for she had a destination waiting and hoped to see her brother who she hasn't seen in 10 years, but little did she know that there was a previously set protocol that determines the life of a stowaway. Barton had sympathy for the girl and did his best to help her by contacting headquarters and asked if there was any way he could spare Marilyn’s life
In the book Fahrenheit 451, we are introduced to two characters with two very different,
Guy Montag changes throughout the beginning of the novel in many ways. An example is his relationship with Clarisse is that he connected with her when he starts to change. Another change is his feelings towards books.
Wayne Dyer once said, “The highest form of ignorance is when you reject something you don 't know anything about.” In the novel Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, ignorance is a common theme portrayed throughout the novel. It sets the impression of how all of the characters feel due to a society that has outlawed books. Guy Montag is a firefighter, whose job is to burn the books. Yet, he often steals them without the chief firefighter, or anyone else knowing. This is until the day he meets Clarisse, who looks at the world in a different way than anyone else. Then, shortly after, he has to burn down a house full of books and burn the woman inside also because she refuses to leave. This causes Montag to realize that books should not be burned and have great significance in the world. He then shows his wife the abundance of books that he has collected from his job, and his wife, Mildred, becomes concerned. This later causes her to make up lies to cover the fact that Montag is breaking the law of owning books. The ignorance shown in the novel is greatly illustrated on page ninety-five, due to the encounter of the
(MIP-2) From certain experiences, Montag comes to realize that he’s not actually happy with his life because he discovers that it lacks genuine, valuable, or humane relationships, eventually driving him to find the truth about his society by making him think about and question it. (SIP-A) Montag realizes from his experiences with Clarisse that his relationships in his life lack genuity, value, or humanity. (STEWE-1) From one of his first experiences with Clarisse, Montag feels something that he realizes he never felt before in his daily life. He ponders to himself, "How rarely did other people's faces take of you and throw back to your own expression, your own innermost trembling thought?" (Bradbury 8). What Montag is pondering about is how she behaved so attentive and natural towards
Ray Bradbury uses Montag’s internal and external conflict throughout the book to show how he is changed by these things. One of the main characters in the novel is Clarisse, who is Montag’s neighbor, and she is the main character that starts his change. She starts his change by asking him a simple question. The book states “Then she seemed to remember something and came back to look at him with wonder and curiosity. ‘Are you happy?’ she said” (Bradbury).
When we reflected on the stories of Someday My Elders Will be Proud and In Search of Sangam we came together as a group and reflected on each story. In the first story Someday My Elders Will be Proud.A native American woman named Jean from Bismarck, North Dakota, tells the story of how she experienced two completely different worlds. She talks about how her mother raised her and her three brothers after their father left them when she was very young. When the children were young, their mother would go to work and their drunk, abusive uncle would care for them. The abuse from her uncle left emotional scars. Jean does well in high school and qualifies for a scholarship for an elite secondary school. She felt out of place since she couldn't really
Albert Schweitzer touchingly wrote, “At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.” By understanding Albert Schweitzer’s background as a talented writer, the reader can appreciate Ray Bradbury’s decisions to include them in Fahrenheit 451.
Children are the most pure examples of the human race. They have not been flawed by societal norms; they are still purely themselves. The pure nature of children is miles away from the beaten down attitude of adults. Adults have seen the pain of reality, and it has caused them to stray from their original state. When the two groups meet, sometimes incredible things happen. In the case of the elderly, sometimes working with young children can bring them seemingly back to their younger selves. In worlds where interaction between people is bleak and often nonexistent, teenagers offer a contrast that can make adults curious again. And in a world so filled with meaningless pain that almost all lose hope, children are there to make them rethink
