Transcript of Fahrenheit 451- Juxtaposition

What is Juxtaposition?
The fact of two things being seen or placed close together with contrasting effort.
Juxtaposition in Fahrenheit 451
Guy Montag is juxtaposed to Captain Beatty,
Both have the desire to discover the unknown.
Guy: Searches or the truth despite society's beliefs.
Beatty: surrenders to society and gives up his search for the truth
"At least once in his career, every fireman gets an itch. What do the books say, he wonders. Oh, to scratch that itch, eh? Well, Montag, take my word for it, I've had to read a few in my time to know what i was about, and the books say nothing! Nothing you can teach or believe"
Work's Cited

Beatty shows that he, too, has experienced curiosity for enlightenment. However, he, unlike Montag, decided that the knowledge in the books was nonsense, and decided to continue living a corrupted life.
Beatty tries convincing Montag to have the same mind set, but Montag refuses to listen.
