Transcript of Untitled Prezi

Fahrenheit 451 has various subtle allusions towards books well recognized books throughout history. Two interesting quotes from the story, referencing two works by Luigi Pirandello and William Shakespeare, are highlighted in this presentation. Literary allusions in Fahrenheit 451 Featured, on page 108 of Fahrenheit 451, this well known quote is not actually a quote at all; instead it is a title of a play by William Shakespeare. Published in 1623, this play is about how the main character, Bertram is ordered to marry another character, Helena. He initially opposes the marriage. Conflict follows. However, as expected, at the end of the play, he gets married to Helena. As the title says, "All's well that ends well." William Shakespeare-
"All's well that is well in the end" Relation to the Text The story starts out with sadness and depression around every corner. As it progresses Montag makes a variety of friends and acquaintances. The quote corresponds to the text because Montag's journey has a rough start but has a satisfying ending. He gains friends of former college professors. Relation to the Text Allusions in Fahrenheit 451 A Sea of Allusions Luigi Pirandello-
"Whoever has the luck to be born a character can laugh even at death. Because a character will never die! A man will die, a writer, the instrument of creation: but what he has created will never die. This quote is featured on page 84 of Fahrenheit 451. This quote features words to live by. In a story, anyone can do anything. This is something that many people wish they could do. As with most stories, there are characters. They can and will do whatever the author wishes them to do. They can also be imagined however the reader wishes. Descriptions that the author gives are just guidelines that help the reader imagine the character. Characters are the main form of entertainment in a story. They move the plot along and can be very unpredictable. Biblography "Shakespeare Resource Center." Shakespeare Resource Center. N.p., n.d. Web. 19 Feb. 2013.
