Written Warning The sci-fi novel Fahrenheit 451, written by Ray Bradbury, is a warning to Americans. The characters of the novel are Montag, a fireman, Mildred, Montag’s wife, and Captain Beatty, Montag’s fire captain. Some of the characters in the novel stand out more than others. In the novel, Mildred and her friends sit in the parlor all day and watch television. The walls are filled with a screen that plays senseless television shows.
In the times of Fahrenheit 451, women usually stay in the home and saw television all day. Families have two or three walls of televisions and that is all they do. That's the way that the government manipulates society. People only coexist with televisions. Mildred calls television her "family", and she thinks that television is her family because she talks with the people on television and they make her feel important.
Fahrenheit 451, originally a novel, depicts the time of censorship and large industrial development. In this futuristic American society, firefighters burnt books rather than extinguishing fires. The government banned books and depicted them to be useless, offensive and more severely, mind ruining. Moreover, the libraries disappeared and teachers did not teach students to think but rather to memorize and follow instructions. The protagonist, Guy Montag, who undoubtedly worked as a fire fighter later saw through the government’s suppression after talking with an unusual woman, Clarisse.
Have you ever felt like you are talking to a wall when you are being ignored? That is what technology does to family and friends. The author, Ray Bradbury, of Fahrenheit 451 states this problem with the main character, Guy Montag, and his wife, Mildred. She is always wearing her earphones listening to music. They also own three flat screen TVs the size of a wall.
In the book Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, there always seemed to be small things that portrayed bigger things.. Those in which includes burning books, violence, and mass media. How did the small facts of the utopia reflect onto bigger events? Montag and other characters grasped onto smaller things that led to big conflicts. 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. After meeting a girl whom loves books, a fireman, Guy Motang, begins to rethink his job and society all together.
In Fahrenheit 451, we can see that through characters thoughts, dialogue, and reactions in certain situations can reveal a lot about them. For instance, Mildred, Montag’s wife, lives in what is suppose to be a utopian society where everyone is happy and content, but Mildred is very unhappy with her life, as we can see when she attempts suicide. Mildred tries to convince herself that she is happy with her boring life which just consists of watching television all day and she denies the fact that she attempted to commit suicide. When Guy Montag is talking to Mildred about her television obsession he says, “Will you turn the parlour off?” and Mildred responded by saying,"That's my family" revealing the detachment from reality she has. (Bradbury
He yells, stalks, and questions his every move because he suspects that Montag is hiding books in his house. Towards the end Montag is found guilty of having books and is forced to burn down his house. Although he actually burned his house, Millie was still inside and afterwards the hound was forced to attack Montag. It jumped at him and started to stick the needle in his led and inject the serum yet Montag was still holding the flamethrower and used it to destroy the hound. Once he destroyed the hound he began to burn Beatty alive.
Even when they do talk about their objects, they don’t have an actual conversation because everyone says the same exact thing. (SIP-B) The characters also start to lose their emotions towards others. (STEWE-1) When Mildred puts in the alarm to turn in Montag for stealing books, she says “‘Poor family, poor family oh everything gone, everything, everything gone now…”(108). She is not upset that her husband will go to jail or be punished. All she cares about are her parlor walls, seashells, and every little object that makes her happy.
Similarly in Fahrenheit 451, Montag, the main character is forced to burn any and every book to try and remove the history of the past so no person can be more intelligent than one another. “....blazing and burning to bring down that tatters and charcoal ruins of history.” (Bradbury, Pg. 1) In the future, people try to hide what technology has done and is doing to the earth and the people living on it. Montag is a ‘fireman’ who burns these books almost all the time; Montag’s wife is not very thrilled with the life she has to live with Montag. She attempts to commit suicide; “The small crystal bottle of sleeping tablets which earlier today had been filled with thirty capsules which now lay uncapped and empty in the light of the tiny flare.” (Bradbury, Pg.
