When I first read it in 7th grade, I thought the man was just pure stupid and that was all to it. When I read it years later, I found gems like “the trouble with him was that he was without a lack of imagination”(115) that changed my thoughts on the character. It showed that the fault to the man was that he didn’t think about what he observed. Jill Widdicombe said “Rational or not, the man's behavior is what makes “To Build a Fire” such a powerful story.” The unexpected reactions of the guy made it seem like at first just like he had one characteristic but upon further reading his actions showed more complexity. Because the character is complex, his unexpected actions help make this story
Books in our society (Fahrenheit 451) are illegal to own because they corrupt ones mind with fake and damaging knowledge. Montag was found with over twenty books in his house which means that he does no think like a normal person. A person who does not think like our society is considered dangerous to themselves and the ones around them, this is why I am prosecuting Guy Montag. Before Captain Beatty was murdered out of cold blood, he was the head fireman at his fire station. He was an honored, intelligent man that had done nothing wrong.
What begins the changes in Montag and what are the changes in him? In Ray Braudbury’s novel, Fahrenheit 451, Guy Montag undergoes major changes because of the influence of other intellects and events; in effect this caused him to ruminate about events that were considered “normal”. Montag’s occupation is firefighting, however he is not the traditional version of a fire fighter. Montag does not put out fire, but rather helps ignite them. This is considered ordinary within his society because they are not allowed to read books or have knowledge previous to this era.
However, it didn’t last long. The owner noticed that something was happening to his precious furniture – they were often ruined and sometimes covered with a dark, stinky liquid. Furious and convinced that it was the work of vandals in that locality, the owner hid in the store one night with a shotgun in his hand, intent on capturing whoever it was. All night long, not a soul appeared near the store. In the morning, he was shocked to find his furniture soiled and ruined all over again.
“Streaks of dirt ran along the walls; here and there lay tangles of dust and garbage” (Kafka 33). Not only himself, his parents and relatives don’t consider him as a human. “All these items ended up in Gregor 's room, even the box of ashes and the garbage pail from the kitchen. The cleaning woman, always in a hurry, simply flung anything that was momentarily useless into Gregor 's room” (Kafka 35). Even though his body is dirty, he doesn’t want to clean himself.
The song is talking about inner city poverty, the broken glass can be from smashed windows from a burglary or vandalism. “People pissing on the stairs, you know they just don’t care” If they cared about their surroundings or their neighbors they would have the decency to use a toilet. “I can't take the smell, can't take the noise / Got no money to move out, I guess I got no choice / Rats in the front room, roaches in the back”. He does not live in the best area, and his apartment is in bad condition. His apartment is smelly, dirty, and infested with rats.
Howard Barron’s corpse at the end was a shock to everyone in town that nobody predicted. All those red flag indicators could not help the town people figure out what is happening in the Grierson household. On the other note, Jack Scherting’s presumption of Emily’s motive of killing Howard Barron was also shocking but not too far-fetched. Jack Scherting’s idea helped me see the story in a completely different spectrum about the relationship between Emily and her father. In the end, William Faulkner’s “A Rose for Emily” is an interesting short story that does and amazing job describing the community in the old Southern United
To him it did not exist because it was tainted by the world of experience - chimney sweeping, death, poverty, etc. Even though Blake saw innocence being taken away, he portrayed his characters in ‘The Chimney Sweep’ as one whose innocence influenced their perspective of life, which was contrary to an adult’s, yet fascinating in the Romantic period. Anyone that ever owned a chimney can attest to the fact that it did get extremely dirty. In addition to the ash that lingers in the fireplace, there is a large accumulation of soot that attaches itself to the inside of the chimney that one cannot see unless they climb up the inside with a flashlight. Approximately two hundred years ago, persons were actually climbing up chimneys and scrubbing out the soot.
You start to wonder why the fire alarms have not gone off or why the sprinklers aren 't working. It is mass chaos on your floor and you have no idea what to do. Emergency preparedness is one of the most important things that someone would need for an emergency situation. In the book 102 Minutes by Jim Dwyer and Kevin Flynn, the authors talk about the terrifying day that was September 9, 2001. Most of the people inside the buildings were scared, confused, and had no idea what to do or where to go.
