In the book, firemen are manned with flamethrowers instead of fire extinguishers to burn books. People are brainwashed that books are dangerous and that they must be destroyed. Several book burning incidents in his lifetime had influenced Bradbury to plot the story in this way. According to Weller (2013), Bradbury wrote about the influence of Hitler’s and Stalin’s book burnings in a later introduction to Fahrenheit 451 which was published in 1966. This clearly shows that book burning was at the forefront of his mind when he wrote his novel.
He is one of the firemen. He rides on the salamander, the symbol for the firemen. Before the old lady burns her own house with an ordinary kitchen match, Montag steals a book. In the old lady’s house she says, “You know where they are or you would not be here”(Bradbury 33). In Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury he illustrates humanity and technology through conflict.
This quote, found on page eleven, is from the scene where Guy Montag is attempting to dial the emergency service number to save Mildred Montag’s (his wife) life. His way of counting shows the build up of what can lead to a war. This quote, found on page thirty-five, is spoken by Captain Beatty.

Comparison of the “Psycho” and “A Rose for Emily” The Psycho by Alfred Hitchcock and A Rose for Emily by William Faulkner are works with different plots and endings. The movie is focused on a maniac, who recreated an image of his mother to kill visitors. Norman Bates killed own mother because he thought she “betrayed” him, and used her personality in his further crimes. The man was caught and his actions were revealed long before his death. Faulkner’s story demonstrates totally different plot: there is an own main character, her mental disorder and its consequences for the society.
Fahrenheit 451, a dystopian novel written by Ray Bradbury in the mid-20th century, is a compelling story about a futuristic society when firemen start fires instead of stopping them, books are deemed wrong and illegal, and to try to change things or have individual opinions is considered wrong. Guy Montag is a fireman who has spent the past 10 years setting fires and burning books, but when meets a Clarisse, a 17-year-old girl who notices the problems in their society, he begins questioning it. This soon comes to his fire chief’s attention, and Beatty wastes no time in trying to put a stop to it. However, Beatty is a very complicated character who is facing his own internal turmoil, and is not as simple as Montag makes him out to be. It is evident that Beatty is in conflict with himself with his obvious hypocrisy over knowledge and books and his want to die, and this deeply affects the entire novel.

This censorship controlled what the American public read, watched, and heard, which in turn limited the information available to the public. Ray Bradbury, an author of this era, wrote one of his most famous books, Fahrenheit 451, inspired by the new technology and government corruption in the 1950s. Through Bradbury’s use of effective character development and symbolism, he is able to illustrate the problems of government censorship and technology in his futuristic dystopia in his novel Fahrenheit 451. Fahrenheit 451 is separated into three different parts that represent the changes Guy Montag, a fireman whose job is to burn books banned by the government, undergoes. Each part contains a new character that sparks this transformation the reader sees in Montag.
