- 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.
- 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.
- “Fahrenheit 451–the temperature at which book paper catches fire and burns…” (1). Greeting readers as they study the title page, this quote immediately intrigues the readers, even frightens them as they realize the rather fiery and explosive nature of the novel.
- 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.
- 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.
- Fahrenheit 451, by Ray Bradbury that takes the reader to a time where books and thinking are outlawed. In a time so dreadful where those who want to better themselves by thinking and by reading are outlaws. Books and ideas are burned, books are burned physically and ideas are burned from the mind.
- That is what he is speaking out against. Bradbury’s use of symbolism throughout the novel makes the book moving and powerful by using symbolism to reinforce the ideas of anti-censorship.
- 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.
- ?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.

- 1) Guy Montag He is the main character in Fahrenheit 451. Montag is a fireman who is a very important person in the fire department. What the requirement for firefighters to do in the story isn t really to put out fires, but to start fires. Thus the term firefighters doesn t truly go along, what they do is get calls of book hide-aways and to fine them and consume them with fire, and also the house in which they are in.
- “Ray Bradbury is one of the immortals among us, whose classic works of science fiction, fantasy and horror will be read a thousand years from now by our descendents and the relatives alike of the planets of a thousand distant stars.” ( Dragon*con, website).

- “Fahrenheit 451″ by Ray Bradbury Government Mandated Happiness By Rebecca Irwin “Fahrenheit 451″ is the temperature where books start to burn by themselves. “Fahrenheit 451″ is the title of the book, because the whole book is about burning books. In this futuristic world, books are thought to lead to unhappiness and happiness is the most important thing in the lives of the characters in the book, as well as people in real life.
- In the course Y2k and The End of The World, we’ve studied apocalyptic themes, eschatology, and for some, teleology. Apocalypse, which is to unveil or reveal, eschatology, which is a concept of the end, and teleology, the end or purpose to which we are drawn, are all themes used in Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale.
- However, success did not come easily for Bradbury. He inched away at his writing career, crafting story after story, until he was selling and occasional short story for half a cent per word. Much of his childhood, and a little of his adulthood, inspired his writings.
- Alphonsus, like so many saints, had an excellent father and a saintly mother. Don Joseph de’ Liguori had his faults. He was somewhat worldly and ambitious, at any rate for his son, and was rough tempered when opposed. But he was a man of genuine faith and piety and stainless life, and he meant his son to be the same.
- Rome, History of. The accounts of the regal period have come down overlaid with such a mass of myth and legend that few can be verified; Roman historians of later times, lacking authentic records, relied on fabrications of a patriotic nature. Following this period, when a republic was established, Rome became a world power and emerged as an empire with extensive boundaries.
- Atwood’s Book has also been compared to other novels like it, such as Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, Burgess’ A Clockwork Orange, and the most obvious, Orwell’s 1984.
