Dear Noelle, You are a very quiet person in class. I never here you talk that much. However, you bring good discussions to talk about in class. You are very intelligent and very enjoyable. To start off, the book, Fahrenheit 451 was a fascinating book. It had included a big theme of censorship. Censorship was a tremendously important theme in this book. For instance, in the book they had said that books were banned in the future. However, there was so logical explanation. They just did not care about books and were all being burned. I can’t believe that they would just burn the book; it had cost a lot of money to print and publish them. I was very angry at that fact and wanted to show them that books are important. In addition, the citizens had lack of interest towards books because there was such a high demand for television. They believed that it was much easier to watch TV than to actually read a book. Thus banning books from society, had angered some civilians too fight against the problem. For example, Guy Montag had started to rebel against the society and had secretly kept books hidden in his home. I was happy that Montag had stood up against the society and rebelled. Overall on censorship, censoring an important part of society, can destroy and corrupt the whole system. Second of all, there were important symbols in the book, Such as, “The Hearth and the Salamander, The Sieve and the Sand”, and “The Phoenix”. To start of the Hearth is another name for the fireplace which represents the heat of society. It’s because there were many problems occurring in the book. Also, the salamander is a cherished creature because during ancient times they believed that salamanders could not be killed in fire. The salamander represents Clarisse because her ideas and beliefs could not be burned or destroyed. Next, the Sieve is represented as a mind while the sand is represented by information. This was saying that Montage was filling his mind up with information of why books were so special. This is related to putting sand in the sieve (bucket). Lastly, the phoenix represents the town because after it was bombed, they had to rebuild it from the ashes. In addition, a phoenix is a creature that kills itself by being burned alive and reborn itself from the ashes. Granger says that they need to reborn the city into a safer and less censored place. I believe that Granger was an intelligent man and helped Montag…

A review of Fahrenheit 451
Fahrenheit 451 was written by 60 years. It is the oldest science fiction of all novels has been read for me. The imagination of this book still makes me admirable. Such as TV well, the show can interaction in time and some telephone or radio in the ears. All of them still can shake the people live in 2012. Fahrenheit 451: the temperature at which book paper catches fire, and burns. Of course, burning books is the central premise upon which the story unfolds. Guy Montag…

I think that in our society, an “antisocial” person means he or she is unwilling or unable to associate in a normal or friendly way with other people and also dislikes the company of others. In Fahrenheit 451, an “antisocial” person means that he or she is not-conform to what the…

Ray Bradbury conveys and explains the internal conflict of Guy Montag is several different ways. Bradbury uses a great deal of figurative language to portray Montag’s inner conflict to the readers. Bradbury also uses many examples of imagery to demonstrate Montag’s conflict.
Bradbury’s figurative language throughout the passage helped show the readers what Montag is thinking and feeling. At the beginning of the…
How would you like to live in a world where you can be punished for having a book in your house? Fahrenheit 451 utilizes censorship by banning books. The author Ray Bradbury applied evidence during the story of how and why censorship can lead to disastrous things. There is no democracy, the people are told what to do, and they have to do it. No one wants that but in the book the society is completely brainwashed to the point that they can’t see that this…
this happening. But imagine if a government became so ruthless that they began to kill off the educated population and destroy the fundamental roots of traditional education and learning. Bradbury takes this idea to a whole new level in his book “Fahrenheit 451”, in which he depicts a government that burns all the books in it so that it can cut off
The fuel to education and self-thought. Fire, a central theme in this novel, provides the basic metaphors for this book to develop. The ambivalent associations…
has tried to control society. This is expressed in Fahrenheit 451, a book by Ray Bradbury. This book is following a guy’s life named Montag, a fireman but instead of putting out fires and saving people like one should, he burns books. Montag’s unique life begins when he meets a young woman, not even seventeen years old, who believes that people should have the right to their own opinions, instead of their society’s manipulation.
In Fahrenheit 451, people are unable to own books because the government…
“The Fire starters”
In the book Fahrenheit 451, there are a lot of aspects written about then that we can all relate to in today’s society. It shows how technology is pretty much taking over everyone’s lives, which is a pretty accurate statement due to the technological advancements we are making in our society today. The televisors in the book pretty much controls the citizens by letting them hear and see what the government wants them to know. In this book the firemen actually start the fires…
In Fahrenheit 451, their society believes that everyone should be the same. The book
says, "We must all be alike. Not everyone born free and equal, as the Constitution says, but
everyone made equal." (Bradbury, 58). This shows that they do not allow anyone to be different
and be their own person. One way they do this is by burning books to hide the differences in
people. Books help violate the idea that everyone is created equal by advancing one's knowledge,
