(1b) Personification - "As he stood there the sky over the house screamed. There was a tremendous ripping sound as if two giant hands had torn ten thousand miles of black lines down the seem." (1b) Text Structures: "He made more soft sounds." Is this active or passive voice? (4a2)
Is the analogy books:dignity::love:affection an antonym or synonym? (1a)
In F451, why do they watch television or the "family"?
Without porches, what are the characters in F451 unable to do?
Why do they have a lot of medical cases in the book? In the book Clarisse says, "I sometimes think drivers don't know what grass is, or flowers, because they never see them slowly." How would you rewrite this in past tense? (4a1)
A) I sometimes do think drivers don't know how what grass is, or flowers, because they never see them slowly.
B) I sometimes thought drivers didn't know what grass was, or flowers, because they never saw them slowly.
C) I sometimes thunk drivers didn't know what grass was, or flowers, because they never saw them slowly. To what did Montag compare Clarisse?

Mechanical hound - In the book, the mechanical hound suggests that the author already knew that we would have many robotic things in the future "It growled again, a strange rasoing combination of electrical sizzle, a frying sound, a scraping metal, a turning of cogs that seemed rusty and ancient with suspicion." pg. 25 In the book, Beatty says at one point that Benjamin Franklin was the first firefighter. We can infer that maybe their history books had been altered, or the government simply made up a new past and erased the old one, filling the citizen's minds only with the things the government wanted them to know. Fact & Opinion:
(2f) Fact: Capt. Beatty was head of the fire department
Opinion: Some may say he was an evil person, others say he was just doing his job. Clarisse's face : Mirror :: Mildred's face : Snow-covered island
Porch is to socialize as TV is to entertain
Books : dignity :: love : affection "'Who are a little wise, the best fools be.' Welcome back, Montag." pg. 105 The books burned in the fire - Rewrite to present tense
