Guy Montag proves to be a dynamic character in Fahrenheit 451 because of the momentous changes he makes in his life. An example of can be found in how his opinion about burning books changes throughout the text; at the beginning he believed that “it was a pleasure to burn...to see things eaten, to see things blackened and changed.” (Bradbury 3) Whereas water has the ability to flush out undesirable traits, fire has the innate gift of destroying negative objects or ideas completely. To be able to control a substance of that nature-one that is non living yet so alive while purifying all in it's path- brought Montag great pleasure because it gave him the ability to exercise
A wise man once said, “The saddest thing about betrayal is that it never comes from your enemies.” In the book Unwind, by Neal Shusterman, he portrays instances where the main characters, Connor, Risa, and Lev were deceived by the people who they depended on the most. As they run away from being unwound, or having their body parts dissembled for others use, they learn quickly that anyone can turn their backs on you. The book illustrates the idea of betrayal and concludes that in the end, you can only depend on yourself. Overall, in the book, Connor was betrayed the most. Connor is first betrayed by his family.
His eagerness to find the truth, yet not get caught in the mob set him apart from the other judges. He is the first in the court to question their justice, and inevitably loses all former weight he held in the court, mainly due to his own exodus. With this the voice of reason in the novel is also crushed, leaving only false accusations and hysteria. The day John Proctor is scheduled to hang, Mary Warrens deposition, and his first arrival in Salem all shaped him into the desperate character the reader witnesses and sympathizes with at the end of The Crucible by Arthur

First off,Cap doesn’t understand anything at his new school,but here are a few that stand out to me: physical violence,the day being “chopped” into 9 periods,the PA system,or that someone is pranking him.Other than that anyone can tell that the school thinks Cap is a weirdo.Some names are weirdo to being from Krypton,to sheriff of dweebs.Cap doesn’t seem to mind that he’s been called those name thanks to his hippie wisdom.If you don’t believe it that people would be so rude as to call this innocent boy such things, this is what Hugh,his first “friend” calls him on page 28 “But just one peek at this guy and you knew that, dweeb wise,there was a new sheriff in

In the exposition of the novel, the symbol of fire is conveyed as very violent and damaging. For instance, Montag follows through with many destructive actions that he enjoys such as the burning of books.
About this hermetic life, one might argue that it is Ambrosio 's 'incarceration in the monastery [that taught] him progressively to devalue other lives '7. Lewis even specifies to us that 'have his youth been passed in the world, he would have shown himself possessed of many brilliant and manly qualities '8, but unfortunately, spending his childhood with monks has made him the wicked man that we know, because 'while the monks were busied in rooting out his virtues, and narrowing his sentiments, they allowed every vice which had fallen to his share, to arrive at full perfection. '9 With this, no wonder that the devil had a bet on him, and that an intervention of a woman like Matilda sufficed to make him embrace sins. A critic even asserted that 'the demonic forces which take hold of him in the course of the novel and lead him from sexual transgression to rape to
The reason I hate these YA franchises is that they are all the same. When you roll out The Hunger Games, Divergent, and Maze Runner. Basically what you get is a group of young people being oppressed by a ruling élite class in a dystopian setting, then the group of young people organized a revolution against the élite, and then it concludes with a full-on revolution against classism (Unless your Divergent of course because you didn’t get to end your series). One way or another it’s all the same thing and that’s exactly why this genre faded out and interest in it is almost non-existent in
