However, Faber teaches Montag that books have quality in them and that people need to sit down once in a while and think. To make people learn more about this, they decide to come up with a plan. It involves putting books into firemen’s homes so that they would get burnt along with all the firehouses. If there are no firemen or firehouses, books will no longer be burnt. Montag and Faber are showing leadership quality because they are coming up with a plan to make a difference in the world.
Can books and people change a person’s way of thinking? Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury is about Guy Montag who is a fireman who burns books and houses. Throughout the book he realizes he’s not happy so he has to transform his mindset by using books and people. Guy Montag changes in the story through his increasing problems in his relationship and his perceptions in books.
In the beginning, the hound caused everyone to sense that it was precisely watching Montag do all of the actions he did. At first glance no one knew what the hound representantes until Beatty was called to Montag 's house for having books. At the beginning of the book, Montag was skeptical of the hound watching him and knowing he had books in his house. In his novel, Bradbury discusses what Mildred was thinking if they were caught for having books. When Mildred turned Montag in for having the books, “she knew that her TVs and her “family” would be gone because their house would be burnt down”(Bradbury 108).
Three events that burned exemplify this impact are stealing his first book, watching the girl burn her house down and her in it, and him burning his own house down. The oppressive society impacted Montag's identity when he stole his first book. Montag is looking for a book to steal to read. In the book it tells us how montage stole the book “Montag's hand closed like a mouth, crushed the book with wild devotion , with an insanity of mind lessens to his chest” ( 34-35).
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.
Books are banned, and firemen burn them. Montag and his wife Mildred, a technology addict, begin to read books, slowly leading them to question the countless problems in his society. In both stories, Ray Bradbury uses tone and literary devices to show how an overdependence on technology as well as a disconnection from the
But now that he sees someone’s life be taken by his enforcement, he starts putting in hard consideration about the very things that are against the laws of his own society and wonders why exactly his society would ban books. (STEWE-3) Eventually, he questions his society so much that Montag starts rebelling by reading books against the rules, now determined to find the answers to his questions about
One danger that people could face is not knowing what we see on the news or in the newspaper’s is actually true, and what people say just to cover themselves up or make someone else look good in the person’s eyes. One of the dangers that Guy Montag faced all throughout the book was that if he told anyone about the books he had stolen and hid in his house the authorities would come to his house and burn the books and the house itself. Mass control is considered a mass danger of censorship because someone controls everyone’s thoughts and imagination. Mass control takes away a person ’s right to be themselves in society.
In other words, they were censored. All types of books, poetry, biographies, history books, they were all banned so people were being denied the right of knowledge and information books contained. Also they were burning them because ﬁre would destroy them completly, that why he said that ﬁre was bright and clean, it would leave absolutley no trace of the book that once exsisted. The next quote i'm explaining is: "We are living in a time where ﬂowers try to live on good ﬂowers, instead of growing on good rain and black loam". This quote is from Faber in part 2 of the book.
In Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, reading books is against society's rules. Montag starts to wonder what it is about books that society roles them to be forbidden. The fire station goes and burns down houses with books and the chief of the fire station is Beatty. Although Montag killed Beatty, he thought he was doing the right thing. Montag is justified killing Beatty because montag was trying to protect himself, and was also trying to protect Faber, and Beatty made Montag burn his own house down.
In the book Fahrenheit 451, Professor Faber is a dynamic character throughout the course of the novel. He represents how many people from society used to be; so knowledgable and his society was completely destroyed and knowledge was taken from them, their most important resource at the time. He is introduced as a very shy and insecure man. Bradbury portrays Professor Faber as, a “coward” (Bradbury 78). However he is introduced as a coward, Faber is a crucial character in the plot and is dynamic throughout the story, and evolves into a brave man willing to let down his life to preserve society.
Professor Who in the world has the most power? Is it the rich, the athlete, the geniuses, or the good looking people. I think it is the rich but a lot of those rich people are really smart and that is how they became rich.
When Montag realizes there's no one left that he can talk to about real issues, no one who understands him, he starts acting impulsively: disabling the door, going to see Faber, and even reading to Millie's friends. Ultimately, those actions lead to his downfall but also to his enlightenment. Meeting Faber was a pivotal point for Montag, allowing him to finally understand the importance of books. When he first read the books, Montag knew there was something special in them, but he had no idea how to interpret it. However, with Faber's help, he finally understood that the books showed the truth about life; he understood why he had to save the books, even if it meant following someone else's orders which he had been doing throughout his life.
Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, Montag has been brought before the court to be discussed on whether he is innocent or guilty and should be punished for crimes against society. Montag has been wrongly accused of crimes that are harmful to society. These ‘crimes’ have not affected the society as a whole but mainly himself and his mind. To be brutally honest, this society would not care much at all for the fact that Montag had books or murdered someone, for this happens many times in this society and has not been disciplined or recognized as a felonious and a punishable crime. Montag is innocent and should not be punished for crimes that only affected him.
