During this era, society discourages the opportunity to think independently because they live under the impression that “not everyone [is] born free and equal, as the constitution says, but made equal” (Bradbury 146) Many technological advancements evolve to occupy everyone and society enforces many rules to ensure that everyone lives equally. However, Montag meets Clarisse, who exposes him to her extroverted lifestyle and encouraged him to question his lifestyle. He soon realizes that he is not happy and the desire for a new life advances him to seek both personal and intellectual freedom. As a result of the desire for uniformity, society removes the majority of the freedom that characters can have.

This is where I'm coming from.

In all of his anecdotal stories, he was being allegorical because each one of his stories contributed to why people should go to school to expand their minds instead of to get a good paying career.

In The Crucible, each character wanted to be respected, but due to gossip and the situations in the community, their dream fell through. In The Great Gatsby, Jay Gatsby’s only goal was to get Daisy. His goal was denied though due to the fact he could not control his natural habits and idea that he was new money.

Keeping all this in mind, as a reader, people should now caution themselves when it comes to dreaming.
