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.

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.
As Harry Browne once said, “Since no one but you can know what 's best for you, government control can 't make your life better.” In Fahrenheit 451, a book by Ray Bradbury, he shows ways on how the government is controlling society with surveillance, technology, and censorship. The government gets to decide what is to be done and what comes in and out of that country. In the novel, it shows how the firefighter, Guy Montag, is different than the other people in that society. These aspects of government control are directly going towards Montag because the advance in technology put into the watchdogs that are in Bradbury’s novel is unbelievable. Multiple news articles suggest that the government is, in fact, controlling our every move.
This is an example of strict laws because it shows how controlling the government is over the society. The strict laws shows how much power the government has over the people. Not only is the in forcing of strict laws made it harder to have individuality, but also the brain washing of their citizens. The Anthem’s society brain washing of their citizens was an easy way to remove their individuality. In Anthem the society brain washed their citizens into thinking their societies way of life was
In the fictional novel "Fahrenheit 451" by Ray Bradbury, the two character Montag and Clarisse, lived in the future where the government is corrupted. As time evolve and the world is changing, the sense of logic become twisted in this society. The world in "Fahrenheit 451" is a place where the idea of "firemen put fires out" appeared to be "long ago" (Bradbury 25). Firemen in this society no longer put out fire, but instead going to start them. The action of a firemen spraying "kerosene" over burning fire is described as an "amazing conductor playing all the symphonies" suggest that this society is twisted (Bradbury 2).
It’s a mystery. Scientists give us gobbledegook about friction and molecules. But they don’t really know. It’s real beauty is that it destroys responsibility and consequences. A problem gets too burdensome, then into the furnace with it.” In few words, fire is a way to escape your past, your problems and anything unwanted.
Montag eventually steals a book during the fireman’s raid on a house, which leads him to seek out a man named Faber, who is an educated man, and helps encourage Montag to take steps to action. Beatty, the firehouse captain, had been suspicious of Montag being in possession of literature. His dubious thoughts are found to be correct when Mildred turned Montag in. Montag is forced to go on the run, leaving the city for the countryside, where he finds other outcasted intellectuals. The city is bombed, leaving it completely destroyed and the society in ruins.
In the novel, it states, “I was just figuring,” said Montag, “what does a hound think about down there nights?” (#1) This quote makes Montag very mad and upset. The thought of the hound being built to kill people really irritates Montag. In the novel, Montag is a firefighter. As a firefighter, he is expected to put out fires. But in the novel, he is the one who starts the fires.
(Vonnegut 1) The government had a lot of regulations on the people in this society and because of that they lost their freedom to think for themselves and could only think what the government would allow them to think. They justified this because it made it so that no one would be better than any other person. They valued equality over individuality. In Fahrenheit 451 the government restricts the ownership and reading of books.
In the book Fahrenheit 451 Beatty is killed by Montag. To understand this event we need to understand what 's happened. Beatty addresses Montag on the dangers of books. Beatty makes Montag feel intimidated. In his hand is a flamethrower at this time.
In Fahrenheit 451, the identity of Montag was manipulated to show the extremity of the state’s control on his individuality. Where Montag’s job is a fireman, not the sort of fireman of today that fight fires, but a fireman who burns books. They burn books as the books contain ideas that could cause conflict and unhappiness among society. This theme is similar to that of We, as the One State has removed the identity of its citizens so that there is no pain, envy and confusion. The texts share the importance of thinking for yourself and having and expressing different ideas because if you don’t, someone else
I heard once that a long time ago houses used to burn by accident and they needed firemen to stop the flame”(Fahrenheit 451,Ray Bradbury, 2013, p. 6). Through the representation of Guy Montag, (the novel’s protagonist,) Bradbury gives us an example of a human who is tired of his life and wants to change something. However Montag finds out that the only way of forgetting the old times is to ‘burn’ them, so he decides to run away from the city. This is what makes Fahrenheit 451 an example of dystopian literacy, where harsh and oppressive government controls society’s minds and have a lack of religion and literacy in a social
