He thought that even though we have everything we need to be happy, but without being able to think for ourselves, we’re not truly happy. Right then, a new door reveals itself to Montag. In part three of Fahrenheit 451, Montag realizes that he is putting himself and Mildred in danger by returning a book to Beatty in order to trick him. After all, Beatty knows that Montag have books and he already hints that Montag have 24 hours to burn them or the firemen will come to Montag’s house and burn them for him. Then Montag went and did the worst thing possible, he read a poem to Mildred’s friends, Mrs. Phelps and Mrs. Bowles.
Montag rebels against everything he knows to gain knowledge that he is not able to gain by the law. Montag also has ideas on how to overthrow the firemen. The largest act of Montag being an anti hero is killing his boss to stop the burning of books. He switched the safety catch on the flamethrower. Bradbury states, “.”Beatty glanced instantly at Montag's fingers and his eyes widened the faintest bit.” Montag is extremely curious about books, and the idea of freedom that it drives him crazy.
Even though in these two stories tackle different things the main character is obsessed over, the main idea of harming other peoples lives because of their strange obsession remains the same. Clearly, obsession can really make one think so irrationally that they forget the basic principles of humanity and they end up doing ridiculous things without usually realizing until after they have taken the wrong action. The lead character in “The Tell-Tale Heart”, had gone so crazy because of his obsession over his eyes, that he decided to take the old man’s life in a very cruel way. The old man had never harmed, insulted, or wronged him in any way, and rather they both cared about each other but “it wasn’t the man who vexed me [him], but the evil eye” . Gradually, he made up his mind to take the life of the old
¨Civilization begins with order, grows with liberty, and dies with chaos.¨ (Will Durant) In Lord of the Flies by William Golding, the quality of society's morals depends upon the moral nature of its leader: Someone inclined to chaos and who rules with fear does not create a sustainable system. The boys are all stranded on the island with no adults, they try to make a sustainable and non fearless government system, the government system falls, and made Jack turn ‘evil’ and go his unsustainable government system way. When Jack starts to lose his innocence, he put some clay on his face to show that he was starting to turn to the chaos or the party side of things. “He looked in astonishment, no longer at himself, but at an awesome stranger.”
“Yes, the war is over, at last over,but for your father and me, nothing is the same. Nothing will ever be the same” (197). In the novel Sarah’s Key by Tatina De Rosnay. There were a lot of characters who felt like they must atone for the past in Sarah’s Starzynski mysterious life with the help of Julia Jarmond. Some of the characters include: Julia Jarmond the one who made everyone more involved in the finding of Sarah, William Rainsferd who is Sarah’s son and also the last person to Julia’s research, and finally Edouard without him, Julia would not have known where to start.
Ella refuses, knowing Granny would be angered by reason of her strict and religious beliefs. After Richard constantly nagging her, she starts reading the book called Bluebeard, a story about a man who kills his wives. Richard is instantly filled with excitement which soon is ended when Granny overhears and punishes him. While granny is disciplining Ella and Richard, she explains violent books
The whole plot being that firemen create fires in the story yet in reality they get rid of them, that is very pessimistic. In the book firemen burn books and any houses with books in them to prevent anyone from broadening their horizons and going against the government. A similar thing happened in Nazi Germany which was an extremely negative time in history. Another example would be, in the beginning when Montag is talking to Clarisse and she asks "are you happy?" Montag is really not sure because he later realizes that he really wasn 't happy when she asked that.

Argumentative Essay Isaiah LaTurner Killing people isn’t good, but people fight wars and kill people to sustain a way of life, continue to survive and protect their family. In the book Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, there is a future where people are dragged down by technology and are like mindless sheep shuffling through life. This is sustained by censorship and limiting people 's knowledge, the government burns books and censors what people see on TV or listen to through their seashells, they use firemen to do this and censor everything. Montag, the main character, is a fireman and he begins to realize that the way of life that he lives in is severely flawed and starts to retaliate against society and asks help from an old friend named Faber. Beatty, the man that goes up against Montag, is also Montag 's fire captain, later in the story Montag kills Beatty to survive.
In the book, Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, the whole utopia is taken over by a mass media where books are burnt if caught in your possession, they focused on entertainment, and violence is no big deal. When I think about the overall book, the world, censorship comes to mind. Everyone seems to be very obsessed with media because books are now not there to be able to entertain and give knowledge. Without knowledge, that whole utopia is madness. Fahrenheit 451 takes place in a future society where they ban possession of books and reading and the job of firemen is to burn all books from people’s homes using the temperature of 451; the temperature that papers burn.
