Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury is about a dystopian society and how in their society books are neglected and burned. How he conveys these emotions or moment in the book by using lines from other books called allusions. Allusions are used to express how people feel in the moment of the book. Authors use allusions because it makes it easier for people to connect to the book and you get the sense of what is happening in the book. Bradbury uses it in Fahrenheit 451 because the book is complex and harder to understand so he uses allusions for the reader to get a better understanding of what is going on and what the situation is.
In Fahrenheit 451, life as we might perceive it is meaningless, from the ways technology controls their lives and the way that they entertain themselves. They've evolved to a point where books are useless, people don’t care about their significant other dying, and they could care less about their children.

I Believe this is the case because of the way he uses strings of words. This greatly impacts the experience of Fahrenheit 451 because when you read a passage it enhances the feel of the entire book with Bradbury’s formal language.

Throughout the novel the diction is very connotative. An example would be when Bradbury describes the sand and the sieve when Montag was a child.
Asking one to choose a single novel to save from the censors or ‘FIREMEN’ of Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 is a concept that is synonymous with asking a parent to only save one of his children from a house fire. There would be a plethora of stories lost and forgotten with the flames, each with its own theme and characters that would no longer have an impact on the world. However, in a society crowded with imbecile leaders and an inclination towards violence I consider Erich Maria Remarque’s work All Quiet on the Western Front a necessity to rescue from the clutches of the censors is. The work that was hated and burned by the Germans during World War II is a tale that gives an accurate account of atrocities committed during times of conflict, portraying
This is shown by the quote, “The more of us who reduce reading to no more than an unpleasant obligation, the faster we descend toward the world of Ray Bradbury’s novel Fahrenheit 451.” His analogy to this novel provides a clear illustration of how Carter envisions society’s future without reading.

"It was a pleasure to burn." In Fahrenheit 451, author Ray Bradbury opens his novel with a menacing declaration of satisfaction and enjoyment from main character, Guy Montag. While burning books as an isolated event may seem like an arbitrary act of relative indecency, this passage introduces the fact that a worldwide book ban and burning is not only a harmful deed, but a direct attack on the preservation of history. The baleful tone is conveyed through the metaphor of the hose spewing kerosene being a python; it is also revealed through his dark diction such as the use of the words "blackened," "pounded," "venomous," "blazing," and "ruins."

The thing that is being censored are books, with Fahrenheit 451 taking place in an American city sometime in the future, focusing on a fireman, Guy Montag, whose brigade goes out on calls to burn buildings possessing books. His society is used to more ‘digested’ content in entertainment, as books often contained information deemed too controversial by some groups, who would protest to the point of the ban of all books, as said by one of the characters.
