Fahrenheit 451 Allusions
Transcript of Fahrenheit 451 Allusions
Project By: Kate Dann Allusion #1 "'Remember Caesar,
thou art mortal.' Background Information Used in Shakespeare's play "Julius Caesar," which tells the story of Caesar ruling Rome and then later, his tragic death.
Caesar begins to act like a tyrant.
Caesar's guards warn him that he is still mortal no matter how much power he has.
Caesar begins to think of himself as a god, leading him to unfair ruling Relation to Fahrenheit 451 Faber brings up this quote when talking to Montag:
All people are mortal
You won't be able to do everything and go everywhere
We have no guarantees in life and our futures. Allusion #2 "The devil can cite scripture Background Information From 'The Merchant of Venice' by Shakespeare
Tells a character that someone or something seemingly good can be bad at heart. Relation to Fahrenheit 451 Said to Montag by Beatty during their made up 'quote war.'
Beatty tries to convince Guy that books are bad.
Though they may seem good, books truly are evil.
Pointing out that books can be twisted to seem innocuous, but they can still hold a harmful meaning. Bibliography Allusion One:

The things you're looking for, Montag, are in the world, but the only way the average chap will ever see ninety-nine per cent of them is in a book. Don't ask for guarantees. And don't look to be saved in any one thing, person, machine, or library. Do your own bit of saving, and if you drown, at least die knowing you were headed for shore."(86). for his own purpose.
An evil soul producing holy witness
Is like a villain with a smiling cheek,
A goodly apple rotten at the heart:
O, what a goodly outside falsehood hath!"" Pictures http://1year100books.wordpress.com/2011/02/27/14-julius-caesar-by-william-shakespeare/
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ Another way to look at this allusion:
Though some people have power, they are still able to die and are not immortal.
This relates to Beatty:
It shows how he thinks he has all the power, causing him to become slightly tyrannical.
In the end though, he corrupts and literally dies. Another way this can be looked at:
Firemen during the time period the book takes place in how they seem to be helping people
They are really destroying diversity in people's thoughts and opinions.
