Transcript of Allusion Project: Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

"It is computed that eleven thousand persons have at several times suffered death rather than submit to break their eggs at the smaller end
(Bradbury 65)
."
This quote is based on the way that people broke their eggs to eat. The people have always broken their eggs on the large end, but due to the king's son cutting himself, the king ordered his people to break them on the small end. There were many people who did not agree with this law and rebelled against the king, causing six rebellions and one king to lose his life and another to lose his crown

.
This quote was said when Montag first told Mildred that he possessed books. After an argument, they agreed to look through them and see if they had any meaning. In the first book Montag picked up, he read "It is computed that eleven thousand persons have at several times suffered death rather than submit to break their eggs at the smaller end(Bradbury 65)." Mildred didn't understand the quote and came to the conclusion that books were stupid and went back to her old way of life. However, the significance of this quote is about rebellion

. This quote describes Montag because he is rebelling against the ways of life that the government has set up, risking his life to have books
(cliffsnotes.com)
. He considers a life without books death, like in the empire the peoples considered death over breaking the egg on the smaller end.
