Imagine living in a world where people are not allowed to read books or to have access to information. Living in this kind of a state might mentally cripple a person or even lead to a world where innovation does not exist, because people are not allowed to explore and think for themselves. In Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, Guy Montag demonstrates the difficult and isolating battle of one man against an oppressive government. In Montag’s struggle, he loses his job and his wife, yet he gains a sense of internal freedom by choosing to leave the city and to continue to read books. In order to control the citizens of the dystopian civilization displayed in Fahrenheit 451, the government censors the information the population receives about every detail in their culture, so indoctrination of the citizens is fairly easy to achieve; however, the nature of humans is to live in a state of freedom.
The narrator requests to work on an ordinary job which is not completely relevant to copying, and instead of writing, he prefers to object. When confronted by the narrator about the issue and his reasons for declining the request, he says that he desires not to. After considering the happening for a long time, the storyteller moves his office to a different place to get rid of Bartleby. As the story split ends, Bartleby says no to eating, and he is seen starving himself to death. Various incidences in the story portray Bartleby as a hero who reveals his braveness in facing the unjust community by his authority and molding the conscience of the narrator.
In Fahrenheit 451 Montag becomes an outsider when he starts to collect and read books. This is considered being an outsider in this society because they believe reading books should be frowned upon. “Montag had done nothing. His hand had done it all, his hand, with a brain of its own…” (Bradbury 37). This quote is showing how he didn’t think about grabbing one of the books he just did it.
Kiowa throughout the short story is clearly the silent leader of the platoon. If there is a mentor figure for O’Brien, it is Kiowa. Kiowa is the perfect example of a static character, one who does not change. Kiowa shined in this area because of the knowledge and wisdom that he continues to provide the narrator
Generally speaking, the speech does follow Aristotle's method of persuasion, and it's well structured. However, Sanders speech wasn't effective, necessarily the speech itself was convincing he definitely has what it takes to get people to vote for him. The Mortensen Riverfront Plaza speech is one of his strongest, but I don't believe it has what it takes to help him win connecticut. So, from my perspective as the audience not it didn't move me entirely making it not effective. I do agree with the vast majority of the issues he talked about, and find him to be trustworthy.
People in this book have proved over, and over again, to be nothing but concern for the boy and his father. They encounter a shady old man who, despite being friendly to, lies about being much older than he actually is. The Father denounces him on his lie, but the
Parris is afraid of what others might think of him and avoids facing the congregation in order to evade the topic of witchcraft. He expresses this in a conversation with Thomas Putnam, by saying, “ I know that you-you least of all, Thomas, would ever wish so disastrous charge laid upon me. We cannot leap to witchcraft. They will howl me out of Salem for such corruption in my house”(13). With this, Arthur Miller shows how caring too much about reputation can turn people into cowards.
While the rest of the boys have long hair and dirty bodies, as well as a new way of thinking based on instinct rather than well thought out ideas, Piggy still resembles the civilized, modern man that he was when he first landed on the island. Piggy remains rationale and civilized even at the end of the novel. After Jack has stolen Piggy's glasses, one of the last reminders of civilization that the boys' had on the island, he still manages to remain calm and logical.

This is the first clue for audience and Laurana that he might be heading to the afterlife. The lawyer is noted to avoid Laurana every chance he gets. For the audience this is dramatic irony as the audience know that Rosello is going to kill Laurana, but Laurana thinks he has stayed out of sight enough and will be fine.
