Transcript of Fahrenheit 451 Oral Presentation

Do we have to know a person for a long time for them to impact us? Central Question Our answer Why would he ask
that question? We believe that he asked that question so that people can recognize when they are being impacted by others for better or worse. Bradbury's answer We believe that Ray Bradbury's answer to this question is similar to ours. We think he doesn't believe that you must know someone for a long time before they impact you. Textual evidence that he is asking the question Evidence in life or the world Textual Evidence In conclusion You need not know someone for an extended amount of time to be impacted by them, because impact shouldn't be measured by the quantity of time spent with someone, impact should be measured by the quality of the time with them. "we cannot tell the precise moment when friendship is formed" p. 71 Possible Sub Questions If we know someone for a long time, will they necessarily impact us? Evidence in life / text that this question needs to be asked 50% of marriages end in divorce Mildred's affection for Montag "You're not sure of it!..." p.47 "the odor of kerosene made him vomit"... "He looked with dismay at the floor. ' We burnt an old woman with her books.' " p.49 " 'You want to give up everything? After all these years of working because, one night, some woman and her books-' " p.51 " 'Master Ridley, ' said Montag at last. p.40 "It's not just the woman that died," said Montag. "Last night I thought about all the kerosene I've used in the past ten years. And I thought about books. And for the first time I realized that a man was behind each one of the books. A man had to think them up. A man had to take a long time to put them down on paper. And I'd never even thought that thought before." He got out of bed.
"It took some man a lifetime maybe to put some of his thoughts down, looking around at the world and life, and then I came along in two minutes and boom! it's all over." p.51 " 'That favorite subject, Myself...' " p.72 "' But let me tell you my plan - '" p.85 " ' It'll change the chemical index of your perspiration' " p.147 Church Christmas We believe that we share a similar view with Ray Bradbury when posed with the question of "Do we need to know someone for a long time for them to impact us. Numerous textual evidence validates our belief that impact is not dependent of the amount of time spent with someone, but rather the quality of time spent with someone.
