You’ll never get into my castle. You’ll never get past the gate.”(Runyon 157). In the quote, Brent is saying that no one will understand or get what he is going through, and he wants to keep it that way.

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.

She has an infinite amount of rules for living in her house, and Huck gets an example of that when he says “Widow Douglas took me for her son, and allowed she would sivilize me, but it was rough living in the same house all the time, considering how dismal regular and decent the Widow Douglas was in all her ways, and so when I couldn’t take it anymore I lit out.” pg. 23 This shows that Huck can’t stand it for very long to be under someone’s roof with rules that keep him in line.
Giles knew that his land would be stripped from his family and bought buy Putnam if he denied or comformened his accusations of wizardry, so he refuses to give a response while he was pressed (Miller 1352). Giles last words were “more weight,” he asked for the weight so his chest would be crushed and his children could get the family land. Both Giles and John passed their specific tests, Mary Warren did not however (Miller). Mary tried to defend Goody Proctor from Abigail’s accusations when Goody was to be arrested, but it did not help (Miller 1306).
