Yet, a key difference between the two texts is that Bradbury conveys his message using a dystopian novel while Henry is using his speech.

Conversely, Henry speaks to his audience rather than present his arguments in a textual format because he wants to personally encourage revolution and form a direct connection with the people. Only then will his audience be able to make a stand.

Bradbury uses these allusions to foreshadow events in the story. “‘Play the man, Master Ridley; we shall this day light such a candle, by God’s grace, in England, as I trust shall never be put out’” (Bradbury 65).

Brave New World is set in London 6:32 A.F.
