- One other similar characteristic in our society and the Fahrenheit 451 society is that more and more, our government is starting to turn the table in their direction and trying to make us conform to their ideology, along with censoring certain things out of our lives.
- In the book Fahrenheit 451 the theme is a society/world that revolves around being basically brain washed or programmed because of the lack of people not thinking for themselves concerning the loss of knowledge, and imagination from books that don’t exist to them.
- "Guy Montag enjoyed his job. He had been a fireman for ten years and he had never questioned the joy of the midnight runs, nor the joy of watching pages consumed by flames?never questioned anything until he met a seventeen-year-old girl who told him of a past when people were not afraid.
- From the first section of the novel, titled The Hearth and the Salamander you mostly get involved in the setting, and get in contact with the characters. I believe the author gives very attention-grabbing and outstanding descriptions of the characters in this novel, which include, Guy Montage, Clarisse McClellan, Mildred Montag, The ?Operators?, Captain Beatty, Stoneman and Black, the old woman, Professor Faber, Mrs.
- Aldous Huxley also uses the concept of society out of control in his science fiction novel Brave New World. Brave new world also deals with man in a changed society. Huxley asks his readers to look at the role of science and literature in the future world, scared that it may be rendered useless and discarded.
- Montag’s job as a fireman serves as a setting to show how many people passively accept the absurdity of their society. Instead of rushing to put out fires, as firemen today do, Montag rushes to start fires, burning the books and homes of people reported to have books.
- Wow it s hot in here; look even those books are starting to burn. That means it must be around 451 degrees Fahrenheit because that s the temperature at which book paper catches fires and burns . In Fahrenheit 451 the nice old community fireman are changed into a futuristic squad of government policing.
- Fahrenheit 451 is one of Ray Bradbury’s most famous, wonderfully crafted accomplishments. The book was first published in 1933, and its story entails a futuristic world in the middle of a nuclear war. The totalitarian government of this future forbids its people from reading or taking a part in other acts that involve individual thinking.
- A world without books that moves at breakneck speed may sound like a wonderful world for the average student who dreads reading books and watches mounds of television daily. It is a world where one does not need to worry oneself with knowing Shakespeare or Thoreau.
- In Ray Bradbury’s, Fahrenheit 451, he predicts a dismal future full of technology, which has been over run with censorship and propaganda. When Bradbury presents his predictions for the future, he depicts many devices and ideas that are now a reality, even though the book was written over 40 years ago.
- One charge of imaginative literature is to give us insight into the world around us, fellow human beings, and ourselves. The novels Anthem and Fahrenheit 451 both hold examples of a world in which people are striped of their individuality. In one sense these novels can be seen as a utopia gone bad.
- All great things that have been created by mankind have evolved from individuals who dare to think outside of the box. There are the regretful ideas from which we learn from and of course the great ideas in which humanity has developed. For us to grow and change, mankind needs a diversity of ideas and thoughts.
- ?It was a pleasure to burn. It was a special pleasure to see things eaten, to see things blackened and changed,? begins Fahrenheit 451 (1). This opening of Bradbury?s novel immediately evokes the consequences of the careless use of new technology and modern-man?s refusal to recognize these consequences (de Koster 44).
- Light, especially fire, and darkness are significantly reoccurring themes in Fahrenheit 451. Guy Montag, the main character, is a fireman, but in this futuristic world the job description of a fireman is to start fires wherever books are found; instead of putting them out.
- Walking through the halls at school I sometimes think to my self; what is technology? Technology to me feels like a ticking time bomb, just waiting to go off at the right moment. How do we benefit from it? Are you sure were not slowly killing our selves in a would be perfect, but not perfect society? Is the time we spend to make our every day lives easier with technology.
- The power of one idea is overwhelming. It can change one individual’s outlook on a society. Censorship is an example of such an overwhelming idea. That one idea changed the way people in the novel thought. Most people followed the idea of censorship; however Ray Bradbury focuses on one man who didn’t.
- For hundreds of years equality has been fought for and to some extent achieved. The majority of people hope that throughout the next several decades the equality of society will continually increase until one day Thomas Jefferson s belief that all men are equal will prove itself true.
- Bradbury was an imaginative child, and being the creative child he was he was prone to nightmares. I think the way he thought when he was a child is finally coming out and he is writing about his fantasies. Source: May, Keith M.
- One of the primary characters that one meets in Fahrenheit 451 is a young girl named Clarrise has been raised to live the way things once were, in a time where people had true freedom Because of Clarrise’s view of life she is branded as anti-social by her teachers and an outcast by her fellow classmates.
