Beatty's motives were to protect himself from higher power, revealing that people will do almost anything to protect themselves or people they love. In the book Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, after driving to Montag’s house, Beatty asked him to burn it down. Some would say that this was Beatty’s challenging Montag or that Beatty was doing right and protecting himself. However if Beatty had not taken the calls and burned Montag's home down he would have had consequences for disobeying the rules. The government in the book had been brainwashing their citizens into believing books were bad for society and were constantly distracting them.
Their community also uses very strict censorship to restrict people’s emotions and understandings. The world’s increased censorship, such as blocking internet searches and certain books, would appall Huxley because he believes in individuals forming their own opinions in order to contribute to society in their own unique ways. In Brave New World, the World State bans well known works such as Othello and Romeo and Juliet due to the mental capacity of their citizens. The controllers decided to ban these books because they “...haven’t any use for old things ... and [they] don’t want people to be attracted by old things. [They] want them to like the new ones” (225).
Fahrenheit’s society differs because it burns books to limit information instead of today’s society having easy access to information. Books in Fahrenheit are burned to keep equality resulting in the people not letting the people very informed. They don't have phones that feed them information or libraries making them have more limitations on information. It demonstrates that they burn books to limit information because it states, “Monday burn Millay, Wednesday Whitman, Friday Faulkner, burn them to ashes, then burn the ashes. That’s our official slogan” (Bradbury, P.8)??
In Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury conceptualizes a society based on censorship. In the society depicted in the novel, books are burned when they are discovered in anyone 's possession. Montag’s job is to burn books and the houses containing them to ash. “‘Do you ever read any of the books you burn?’ ‘That’s against the law’” (Bradbury, 8)! Montag seems horrified that Clarisse would ask him a question with such an obvious answer, but the truth is Montag is really curious as to what lies within these forbidden books.
(MIP) The following meme is centered on two focal messages presented by the government in Fahrenheit 451—burning books is completely moral and being different is wrong. (SIP-A) One of the goals of this meme is to persuade people to oppress reading and support book burning—an idea that is quite prevalent throughout the novel. (STEWE-1) At first, we see how much the government has enforced the rules of burning books through the actions of Mildred and her friends. When Mildred first saw a book, she began to “[breathe] rapidly” and afterwards, she “seized the book and ran towards the kitchen incinerator” (Bradbury 63). Mildred had been so manipulated by the government that even seeing a book makes her feel insecure; making her want to burn the book even against her husband’s request.
Fahrenheit 451, by Ray Bradbury, is a novel about a futuristic society where books are banned and firemen burn books rather than put out fires. The main character Montag is a fireman who lives with his wife Mildred. Montag ends up stealing books which is against the law especially because he is a fireman; and Mildred is against anything that has to do with books. Society wants everyone to be happy but there 's an alarming mechanical hound in this novel that kills people and is asymbol of fear. Bradbury’s novel shows how a society overcomes the eradication of books through the use of symbolism, motif, and imagery.
Another common theme in is that the why can change people’s opinion on controversial topics. Throughout Fahrenheit 451, Montag’s stance on why books are important to their society shifts. Faber tells Montag, “Don 't ask for guarantees. And don 't look to be saved in any one thing, person, machine, or library. Do your own bit of saving, and if you drown, at least die knowing you were headed for shore.” (82).
In this part of the book, all of the firemen including Montag received a call to burn a house with the books in there. Here became the turning point for Montag as he saw the woman, who already had made her decision to die rather than live in a world of oppression and restricted freedom of thought which books symbolize in this part, burns with the illegal books in the burning house, refusing to go out without the assurance of the safety of the books. We can suppose that his perception is gradually changing through the phrase showing that Montag felt a huge guilt over this, unlike the other firemen or Beatty. Furthermore, during the conversation with his wife, Mildred, Montag says, “We burn a thousand books. We burnt a woman."(page.
Revolution tried to debunk the ox trick, but Mubarak and his entourage were clever enough to outmaneuver them and aborted any attempt of political reform. Because they lacked sufficient experience and a clear vision, it was foretold that they would be imprisoned and received punishment as terrible as that of Prometheus, while “Mubarak 's generals and policemen who have the last laugh” (Alexander). Aeschylus’s Prometheus Bound Whether the trilogy of Prometheus Pound, Prometheus Unbound and Prometheus the Fire Bringer were written by Aeschylus or not (Ruffell 14-5), Prometheus Bound reflects both a rebellious spirit and a belief in human progress. Though Prometheus was against the tyrant, they were eventually reconciled. In Aeschylus’ trilogy,
As we all know, everyone is different in their own way. Throughout the novel, Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, Montag faced many situations and one of them was being caught with books and having his house burnt down by Captain Beatty. A handful of justifications on why it was right for Beatty to burn Montag’s house down is because the Mechanical hound knew that Montag had books in his house, Beatty was doing his job and Millie also knew he had books and didn’t want to get in trouble as well. Even though Montag was a fireman and knew what would happen if he was caught with books, he still hid the books anyway and tried to get away with it. In the beginning, the hound caused everyone to sense that it was precisely watching Montag do all of the actions he did.
