If you 've read the book you know the beatty tries multiple times to try and get montag to forget about the books and even went as far as ignoring fire calls on him. He is justified in promoting his values because people would not be able to get along together in this society. This is all related to the red scare and mccarthyism. The fear of people who are different, more specifically the societal view that beatty has. And it ok to think this because it is a natural human behavior.
George always tells him how he screwed up and that he should not do it again in the future. Lennie does not learn from his mistake. Steinbeck shows this because in the book Lennie keeps making mistakes throughout the book. Therefore, Lennie brings struggle upon himself because he does not change. Steinbeck was successful at making Lennie an unsympathetic person in many ways.
He knows if he postpones the hangings people will start to suspect the truth about witchcraft. He decides to allow the hangings. Danforth would rather see innocent people die than lose his credibility which proves Danforth is a selfish human being. Even though he has a high social status, he is a coward and a
The top three issues that Ray Bradbury had addressed in Fahrenheit 451 was ignorance versus knowledge, advancement of technology, and censorship. Bradbury had focused on ignorance versus knowledge because he feared that people are becoming ignorant. He was trying to draw attention to the fact that when societies do not read books they are becoming ignorant because books contain knowledge. He presents this in F451 by showing that when the firemen burn books they are depriving everyone of knowledge thinking they are promoting the society. In reality, though they are just being ignorant.
Bradbury also despised the rise of special interest groups and the idea of political correctness, saying “If we listened to all these groups then we wouldn’t have anything to read or anything to look at” (Aggelis). Bradbury’s personal opinions on censorship and political correctness helped influence his writing of Fahrenheit
Raskolnikov didn 't kill Alyona because of his poverty and his debt, he killed her because he thought it would be useful to. Raskolnikov reasons that if Alyona were dead, everyone would be better off. He reasons that after the murder, people could have their items back and many problems would be fixed. By hurriedly hiding away the items, the premise for which he killed disappears. It becomes clear that, after never going back to retrieve the items, the murder was only for selfish reasons.
He reads a lot. Got books in his room.”( Steinbeck pg 20). This quote from the book gives the reader an example of how they treat Crooks and that he doesn 't really talk to anyone but he does read a lot and you could gather from that, that he is kind of lonely. Another thing is that when Crooks was talking to Lennie he told Lennie he had no right to be in his room because he isn 't allowed in the bunks with them so Lennie could not be in his room then. This might tell you that Crooks spends a lot of time by himself and he doesn’t feel that the other guys should get to do things if he doesn’t.
At this point he is admitting fault with lying to Ender about the battles just being a game, and not the actual war. At this point in the book, Card intends that the reader catches on to the fact that Ender dislikes lying, if the reader has not done so already. After this point in the book, Ender does not tell a lie, but only tells the truth. This is how Ender was able to rise up as a person from such a traumatic event, and learn quickly that lying is never the answer, and that it will result in nothing good in the end. Ender even admits earlier that Colonel Graff was indeed right in his speculation of Ender not being able to kill off the bugger species if he had known exactly what he was doing.
Why is it so hard for people to give up a story? Why is it that even the worst off in our society would just assume continuing to enact a story in which they are miserable? It’s hard for people to give up a story because they don’t even realize there is one. Like the narrator in the beginning was oblivious to even a creation myth, but was acting out the principles it taught without even realizing where he got these principles. Even the worst off in our society would continue enacting this story because they have been conditioned to believe that any other life out there is worst.
Henry James used ambiguity to provide a more sporadic and confusing environment in The Turn of the Screw. His uses are terrifying because humans are afraid of the unknown, and his goal was to horrify people to the core, only leaving them some of the pieces to make an answer. James relied not on ghosts being a scary topic, but on confusion and the imagination of the reader. Even in the end, he left the story as it was, creating a vast plot hole that the reader feels the need to make something out of, an ultimate use of ambiguity. It becomes a book that he didn’t write, but the reader wrote and chose their own interpretation of for a more personal
Fahrenheit 451 is a dystopian novel because it shows how society is supposed to conform, but Montag recognizes the flaw in the system making him the protagonist. In the text Montag knows not to read any books because "That 's against the law! "(Bradbury 5). He and everyone else is expected to follow that rule. As the book progresses Montag gets more and more interested in books and their information.
There is time gaps in his stories that don’t make sense. I think he had some type of jealousy for Adnan. I feel like he knows the real story of what happened, he claims he does. I understood when he said that he was scared to contact the police but not to contact the police because you sell a little bit of pot doesn’t make sense. I personally feel like if he is telling the truth about Adnan and if he honestly wanted to help Hae then he would have told the police.
This laziness to deal with others lead to the government to destroy the ideas of different thinkers than what is considered normal to them. Independent thought is also being destroyed along with the books. "’I don 't want to change sides and just be told what to do. There 's no reason to change if I do that. … You 're wise already (95)!’" Faber’s influence helps Montag grow and start thinking more independently.
“Why, then, had he come hither? Was it but the mockery of penitence? A mockery, indeed, but in which his soul trifled with itself. He had been driven higher by the impulse of that Remorse which dogged him everywhere” (Hawthorne 138) here dimmesdale can 't face the justice of what he has done wrong which is why the author called him a coward and is the reason why he kept his secrets because he is a coward to admit it to and face the consequences which is why later the guilt of keeping them eats him from the inside. Dimmesdale also kept his secrets to keep his reputation as the revered so the town won 't judge him.
’For your file,’ he said, ‘in case you decide to be angry with me.’"(Bradbury, page 71). Faber is asking to get his house burnt to a crisp, but montag decide not to turn him into his higher ups. This society scares people that break the rules so much that they turn themselves in. This society makes people feel guilty for reading books. In the real world, society does something similar to this, just with opinions and not books.
