The only thing I positively knew was gone was the books I 'd burned in ten or twelve years. So I thought books might help.’" (Bradbury 82). Here Montag becomes aware that the society, who are detached from the world, is missing something prime to life. They do not want to see, or even wonder about what anything means.
Dystopian fictions are influenced by the authors’ personal experiences and thoughts. Ray Bradbury’s negative view on technology, book burnings, witch hunts, and censorship led him to writing his dystopian novel. To begin with, Ray Bradbury’s negative view on technology led to writing Fahrenheit 451. According to Cliffnotes (n.d.), Ray Bradbury lived through the golden age of television and radio.
The other character used is Clarisse McClellan; she is the one to make you think, to give you a start. Ray’s purpose in using these characters is as a symbol for the main character, Guy Montag. He uses Montag to notice what society has hidden by dropping these characters into his life. In the novel, Ray uses Mildred in order to convey how brain washing can turn a person’s whole perspective in the way things revolve around them.
In the poem “Do not go gentle into that good night,” the poet uses a metaphor to compare death as “night” and “dying of the light.” Dylan Thomas repeats the lines “Do not go gentle into that good night” and “Rage, rage against the dying of the light” in each stanza to emphasize that all men should not accept death, but fight it until their last breath. He describes four types of dying men before addressing his father. First, he states that intelligent men that know death is near and have not had any impact on society still fight to live: “though wise men at their end know dark is right, / Because their words had forked no lightning they / do not go gentle into the good night.” (Lines 4-6).
Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid, which in high dosages can result in a decrease respiratory rate, hypertension and bradycardia that can lead to death if untreated (Olson et. al, 2010). Robert having worked in a hospital as a respiratory therapist gave him an opportunity as to how and when the medication could be stolen without detection. While his family slept, he went into the home and injected his wife and two children with lethal doses of Fentanyl.
Individual Speech “A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, said Jojen. The man who never reads lives only one. ”- George R. R. Martin Imagine a world without books. We would probably be 200 years behind, and nothing that is around us today would’ve developed yet.
A theme “burning” seems to symbolize the author’s message: “do not be serious.” It is worthy to outline Kim’s short story Doctor Moorhead and a Patient (1967) in this respect. Heroine Stella, who had made a car accident resulting in death of the victim, has been receiving doctor Moorhead 's counseling for several months. Stella confides the inside secret having impulsive aggression, and this doctor – he had sexual relations with patients several times – tells her that it is a natural instinctual drive and recommends its cancellation by killing animals or spurious suicide (reckless driving or gambling). However, she can’t get satisfied with them and kills him at last.
Holden has so many courteous words to describe Allie. The impact of losing his brother seems to be very difficult for Holden. Salinger uses Allie’s death to show that cancer, primarily pediatric cancer, has a huge effect on the child’s family. Holden continues on stating that when he was thirteen “...they were going to have me psychoanalyzed and all, because I broke all the windows in the garage. I don’t blame them.
Later Sam comes back when Benny is out and he and Joon run away, taking the bus. Joon has a psychotic break on the bus and is taken away by the ambulance and admitted into a group home. Benny overcomes his anger towards Sam and they team up to try and sneak into the group home to see Joon and take her home. There is never a specification of to what mental illness Joon has, but there are many hints here and there that show that she does suffer from paranoid schizophrenia. A good example of this would be when Benny is talking to Sam in the bathroom before the first day that Sam is to stay at home alone with Joon.
In Fahrenheit 451 the character Faber is an old English professor who chose not to speak out when his society began burning books. In Fahrenheit 451 Faber says to Montag “Mr. Montag, you are looking at a coward. I saw the way things were going, a long time back. I said nothing.” This shows sometimes people do not want to conform but they are too afraid to speak out.
Pou defends her actions by stating she was only making the patients comfortable, in a sense that if they allowed the patients to live through the next day it would be as if the patients were living in hell. In July 2006 the doctor and the nurses in connection with the death of the patients were arrested but the charges were later dropped.
Gregor Samsa is a traveling salesman working to pay off his parents’ debt. One morning, Gregor wakes up and discovers he is a “monstrous verminous bug.” He thought he was dreaming, but everything in the room appeared to be the same way he left them the night before.

Polkinghorne had arrived home about 9pm and shouted in absolute anger "I 'm going to f ... ing kill her" (referring to Jessica Silva) and that is when Silva and her brother tried to calm him down but failed to. Evidence also shows that he had called Ms. Silva numerous times earlier throughout the day– fortuitously recorded by police investigating Mr. Argiropoulos’ murder – saying "I 'm gonna cave your f---ing head in", "I 'm coming to get you" and "I guarantee I 'll bash as many people as I can before they arrest me". Justice Hoeben, who found Ms Silva not guilty, stated that Silva’s suffering will act as an extreme case of a mitigating circumstance as evidence shows that Mr. Polkinghorne had not only verbally abused the lady but also punched her in the face and ripped her pants before getting into a serious fight with her brother Miguel and her father Avalino Silva which made Silva "highly emotional and
Johnny killed a guy in self defense thinking he would get the electric chair. While the socs beat up many greasers and almost killed one without even having to worry about any punishments. In 2012 something similar happened when a kid named Ethan Couch killed 4 people, violated 5 laws, and only ended up with 10 years probation and rehab at a vacation resort. When S.E. Hinton wrote The Outsiders, she understood that there are many inequalities under the law that severely affected lower class and upper class people. These inequalities are still around today, as shown by the Ethan Couch situation.
