The topic I’ll be explaining is how Ray Bradbury feared the political dictatorship. He would fear a Trump presidency today. He Wrote Fahrenheit 451 in fears of a Hitler and or Stalin like America. Ray Bradbury was the writer of the novel he was scared at the time. Looking at what the world and what he thought would happen with leaders like Hitler and Stalin. He had feared the book burnings and murders of authors in Germany and Russia, He feared it could come to the United states and eventually see a full censorship in our world. In Fahrenheit 451, FireFighters start fire and burn books, books are illegal to have and read in this dystopian world.

Lady Macbeth is responsible for Macbeth’s transformation because she taunts him, forces greed and downplays murder.
All books that young adults read have power. Their power results in their ability to sway and to change the reader in so many ways, not the least of these is morally. These books can create a moral sense in the young by demonstrating what is morally right and what is morally wrong. They can raise and resolve ethical issues. The reader may not agree with each resolution, but is certainly forced to think about issues he or she may never have thought about before (Smith 63).

Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury is an excellent utopian/dystopian fictional story about a man who fights for the freedom to read. The government in this world has made almost every book (with a few exceptions) illegal. They have done this due to the contradictory ideas found in them. It was thought that all of the contradictions might confuse citizens on what is the truth and what isn’t. This book, along with being a utopian fiction, follows the Hero’s Journey archetype. Even though this book may not have purposely been made as an example of the Hero’s Journey the book and many others follow the paradigm. It may not be a perfect example, however, it definitely has it’s moments.
