Do you follow the rules? In the book Fahrenheit 451 there is a character by the name of Guy Montag and he is the rebel of the story and contributes to the theme in a way that any other fictional character would.

And I believe that Clarisse and Montag contribute to the theme because Clarisse changes Montag as the book goes on and Montag keeps Clarisse happy by being there for her and being her father figure Clarisse is crazy or at least that what she thinks and the world sees her as a crazy 16-year old that tends to overthink things.

He keeps a journal containing what they refer to as “thoughtcrime” which is unorthodox and a controversial way of thinking in his society. One of his first diary entries contains a repeat message of “DOWN WITH BIG BROTHER” (Orwell 18) written continuously over and over again releasing all the build up anger he has had
Just as the narrator faced several accusations of betrayal throughout the novel, these accusations were essential in making a difference for the narrator. For example, his rebellion against the Brotherhood caused him to find his true identity one who desires change in society. Similarly, All American Boys taught that the same lesson is still alive today. In the novel, Quinn’s dangerous move to wear the shirt in support of Rashad was clearly a betrayal to his friend, Paul Galluzzo. Nevertheless, his betrayal was motivated by a desire to fight for justice in the world, despite angering his friends.

Methods of Control in 1984 and Brave New World The common goal of all totalitarian regimes is to create and maintain a perfect society. They use various methods to preserve their grip on power. The novels 1984 by George Orwell and Brave New World by Aldous Huxley describe entirely different totalitarian societies in which contrasting methods are used to control people.

Bradbury, the author of Fahrenheit 451, expresses the message that you can’t trust everybody. He does this by showing how multiple people turn Montag in after finding out about his secret. The characters in this novel go through many conflicts some characters cause them, while other characters fix
He even brands himself with the letter A, a mark of his sins that he is only willing to reveal to himself until the end of the novel. He “stood on the verge of lunacy” (135), tortured by both himself and by Chillingworth. Even when he finally reveals his sin, he dies right after, admitting his cowardice in that he would rather die than experience public shame. He may have lived an easier life had he revealed his secret, but he was too focused on upholding his current moral righteousness that he could not bring himself to divulge his wrongdoings.
