Mark Twain has decided to write in a hero who turns out cowardly, being too afraid to go back and tell his story, one who instead turns to seclusion far away from what he knows. Which, in a way, is what Mark Twain did during his process of writing Huckleberry Finn. Huck turns out to be somewhat relatable to the man who is afraid of what people think, but that is not a true hero. A true hero is willing to do whatever it takes to do the right thing morally. Huck’s morals have changed for the better as seen in the novel; making it all the more curious when he does not follow the archetype laid out for him.

In the society featured in Fahrenheit 451 books are burned so that the people don’t get any ideas, find historical happenings, or anything that may make them think that the government is doing the wrong thing. Bradbury is basically saying that the government is manipulating the citizens into letting them control them. Instead of letting people know and learn about what happened in the past so it doesn’t repeat, they try to solve the problem by making history completely disappear.
