Fahrenheit 451 is a novel by Ray Bradbury about censoring books. Ironically, the book Fahrenheit 451 was itself partially banned in California in 1992. Guy and Mildred Montag, Beatty, Faber, and Clarisse are all important figures in this novel. A fireman, Guy Montag, orchestrates a rebellion against the government to filter books back into the society. The harmful result of censoring is a dominating theme in Fahrenheit 451. The government in Fahrenheit 451 censors the citizen’s reading material completely. The desire of the government is to keep all books out of the hands of the citizens. The firemen are trained to have that thinking too and to burn all books along with the homes that the books are in. “It was a pleasure to burn.”
