I agree with Watt that indeed Bradbury made Fahrenheit 451 more interesting with the symbolism and allusions he used in the novel. Also, I agree that Bradbury did go a little too far with the actions that took place in the dystopia. For example, when Montag’s neighbor, Clarisse was supposedly killed, Mildred, Montag’s wife, acted as if it was no bid deal that a girl had just died. Another example of people not caring about each other in the dystopia is with Mrs. Bowles and her children. Mrs. Bowles shows no gratitude in having children. In fact, she states that one of the reasons why she had children was to repopulate the earth, and because someone had to do it. She does not have children for her to love them and cherish them. It makes sense
