Guy Montag’s perspective of the firepole and the overall concept changes from delight to disgust over time because key elements around him help break down the once impenetrable wall of his mind that the government has built as they see fit. The birth of this conflict happens at the very beginning of Fahrenheit 451, when Ray Bradbury describes not only the fire station, but also the way Montag looks and feels at that particular moment. This opening is the last point in which Montag feels happy about his job. The fact that he “ hung up his flameproof jacket neatly”(4) and “ he showered luxuriously” (4) proves that not only does Montag feels happy where he is, he loves his job. In Montag’s eyes, the fire pole is like a gift from God.
