“When someone truly cares about you, they give effort, not an excuse”~Zig Ziglar. Ray Bradbury's novel, Fahrenheit 451, has a theme of relationships decaying because of technology. The protagonist, montag and his wife mildred slowly grow apart throughout the book because of technology. As mildred becomes more and more obsessed with technology, motag strives to keep their relationship alive. Only to find that Mildred will not put forth the same amount of effort instead she gives excuses.
Rosemary is still not ready to move on from her late husband even though it wasn’t a healthy relationship. Part of it is because she has been living by his rules for so long she isn’t sure what to do just like the people after V takes down the monitoring systems. For three days they will not be monitored at all, and at first they are quiet like Rosemary, and want things to go back to before. One lady even says, “won’t seem the same, used to like the way them little cameras went forwards and back…”(V for Vendetta 188). After Rosemary leaves the quiet phase, she begins making her own decisions by going out with Dascombe, and when V killed him, she got a job as a dancer to support herself.
The man is saying that they have ugly personalities and that they are attempting to cover it up by making themselves look attractive. The woman looks very disappointed with herself and that is how these selfish people should feel. Having an “ugly” inside causes grief and selfishness. Being beautiful on the inside is crucial, and more important than deceiving others with
As Ying-Ying thinks about the past and how amazing it was until she met a bad man (just like Lena), the lines “We were born and raised/ In a summer haze/ Bound by the surprise of our glory days/ I hate to turn out of the blue/ But I couldn’t stay away, I couldn’t fight it/
Furthermore, love is changing people in a positive way and those who ennobles love. Love connects with people through positive things such as when two people are in love they love each other from the heart and it can also change the way that the person who they are in love with
Gatsby and Daisy have a history together that becomes shattered after Daisy gives up on Gatsby and marries Tom Buchanan. After they see each other again after many years, that love it turns out, is still present for Daisy from Gatsby. Although the love is there, the ability to pursue Daisy is more difficult than simply wooing her. This claim shows how common adultery actually is in the culture during that time and today as well. Even though Daisy and Gatsby knew that a future together was not the most probable scenario.
Perhaps when Roderick states that his illness stem from Madeline; “[…] tenderly beloved sister, his sole companion for long years, his last and only relative on earth” indicates a rather incestuous relationship. While this statement might not mean anything, it certainly leaves the reader thinking that their relationship falls far beyond a normal brother/sister relationship. Furthermore, the dependence on each other seems to be destructive. Moreover, it can be argued that Madeline and Roderick are two halves of one body representing body and mind. Throughout the whole poem, Madeline is depicted in a way that always connects/resembles to Roderick.
Last, Marlow’s encounter with Kurtz’s intended portrays the atrocious thought that women 's lives should be governed and their naivety preserved by the men around them. On page 69, Marlow states “It was more than a year since his death” and also says the intended is still mourning showing her submission to the fact that the coming and going of men rule her life. Also, when Marlow lies and tells her that Kurtz’s last words were her name (pg 72), he is protecting her from the danger of the truth. This is once again implying that women are not capable of handling the truth. Throughout Heart of Darkness women are portrayed as incompetent and inferior to men.
The artwork was frightening, it drew me in before I could start reading the poem, it was very interesting. The artwork felt sad as if a person could get lost in the moment from reading the poem, it was later exposed that the person was lost without her husband. As the widow manifested on the good times that she had with her husband everything surrounding her was dull, it was a non-factor, it was colorless and it was white. The artwork made me think the poem was going to be very depressing but the narrator portrayed a sense of acceptance from the character. The character was eventually going to be ok
Steinbeck contrasts Curley’s wife’s marriage with Georges and Lennie’s friendship to show the causes of Curleys wife’s isolation. George and Lennie made plans of a future together, they cared for each other and made sacrifices for the each other. Curleys wife doesn’t even like Curley. She tells Lennie “I don’t like Curley, He ain’t a nice fellow.” In a strong supportive relationship at the very least you need to like the other person.
After I thought about it for a while, I realized that he said it in a loving way, the same way I have heard him tell my sisters and my mom for so many years. I began to cry harder and continued to cry tell I finally fell

Technology in Wall-E and Fahrenheit 451 Both Wall-E and Fahrenheit 451 have serious warnings to humanity the dangers of becoming too reliant on technology. Throughout both works there is emphasis on how technology separates people from their fellow man. There are also examples of technology actively going against man in both works. Both works see technology as a major contributor to the deterioration of the human race.
Independence in Words Without the presence of words and books, one loses the ability to be independent, like most characters in Fahrenheit 451. The main character, Guy Montag, does not wish to be like everyone else; he wants to have the ability to consider things for himself. With all of the brand-new technology and the disappearance of books, he believes this is no longer possible. In Ray Bradbury’s novel, Fahrenheit 451, the presence of technology in society are used to prove the importance of reading, independence, and thinking for oneself.
Throughout the course of Fahrenheit 451, Montag has become more introverted towards his wife Mildred and no longer feels the pride that he used to in his job has a fireman. Montag even says to his wife “Mildred, how would you feel if, well, maybe, I quit my job for a while?” (Bradbury 54). Montag is unhappy with his job and does not want to return to work, because he had not only witnessed a woman burn to death on her stack of books, but he stole a book and was keeping it under his
