Transcript of Fahrenheit 451

Having the courage to follow through with what you believe Montag 5. “Then he reached up and pulled back the grill of the air-conditioning system and reached far back inside to the right and moved still another sliding sheet of metal and took out a book. Without looking at it he dropped it to the floor. He put his head back up and took out two booked and moved his hand down and dropped the two books to the floor. He kept moving his hand and dropping books, small ones, fairly large ones, yellow, red, green ones. When he was done he looked down upon the twenty books lying at his wife’s feet” - (Bradbury 63) 4. “He twitched the safety catch on the flame thrower. Beatty glanced instantly at Montag’s fingers and his eyes widened the faintest bit.” (Bradbury 112) 2. “No. We’ll save what we can, we’ll do what there is left to do. If we have to burn, let’s take a few more with us. here! He remembered the books and turned back.” (Bradbury 115)
Clarisse and Beatty 2. “You know, I’m not afraid of you at all……So many people are. Afraid of firemen, I mean. But you’re just a man, after all…” (Bradbury 5) 4. “They want to know what I do with all my time. I tell them that sometimes I just sit and think. but I won’t tell them what.” (Bradbury 20) Refugees 1. “We made the right kind of mistakes, or we wouldn't be here. When we were separate individuals, all we had was rage. I struck a fireman when he came to burn my library years ago. I’ve been running ever since.” (Bradbury 143) 4. “We are model citizens, in our own special way; we walk the old tracks, we lie in the hills at night, and the city people let us be.” (Bradbury 145) 3. “And when they ask us what we’re doing, you can say, We’re remembering. That’s where we’ll win out in the long run. And some day we’ll remember so much that we’ll dig the biggest goddamn steam shovel in history and dig the biggest grave of all time and shove the war in and cover it up.” (Bradbury 157) 2. “We’ll the books on to our children, by word of mouth, and let our children wait, in turn, on the other people.” (Bradbury 145) Questions 1. How far would you go to stand up for something as strong and influential in the world such as censorship? 2. Where do you think our society would be today if outstanding people in history hadn’t been brave enough stand up for what they believed in? 5. Put yourself in the shoes of the lady that died with her books. How far would you be willing to go for something that small if it made you happy? 4. Raise your hand if you’re a big reader. If you were put in Montag’s situation, how would you handle things? 3. In Nazi Germany, the government issued book burnings to help shape the government and hold more control over the people. How is their outcome similar to what happened in the end of the story? Shows that Montag was
willing to take what he believed
to an extreme by sneaking around the
government and even his own "friends"
Did what he needed to do
in order to stick with his beliefs. 1. "We depend on you. I don't think you realize
how important you are, we are, to our happy world as it
stands now." (Bradbury 59) That shows that Beatty thinks the world is really happy as it is now.
Firemen are there for the purpose of keeping
them happy.
People are better off ignorant as they are now. 3."Forget them. Burn all, burn everything. Fire is bright and fire is clean." (Bradbury 57) Here Beatty believes that fire is the answer
because fire represents purity and because it doesn't deceive people the way books do. It destroys and only destroys. Here, Clarisse displays how independent she is and she does what ever she wants despite what people think. Clarisse strongly shows how brave she is
here. Other people are scared of firemen but she
sees through their masks and sees that they are
just ordinary people like she is. The refugees weren't afraid like Faber was.
They weren't cowards and didn't hide their books.
Didn't hide the fact that they were unhappy with society. The Refugees found a way to
peacefully live and believe what they
want without bothering anyone. Nicole, Christianna and Nadia No one in the society of Fahrenheit 451 had the brains or will power to think and act for themselves. They were just going through the motions. People that could think differently were typically outcasts and blatantly ignored by everyone.
He's leaving because he knows he should
still go back and save more books because he's
already in trouble
If he's leaving, books should leave with him. They know that it might take a while to convince people that the way they are currently living isn't right.
They are going to preserve the old ways as much as they can because they still believe that is the way to live, and aren't going to give up. The refugees are strong. They are basically running into this war head first, but they remain strong and brave. There were, however, people willing to be brave and stick to their original beliefs and not waver in the face of others. 3. I'll hold on to the world tight some day. I've got one finger on it now; that's a beginning. (Bradbury 155) 1. “Beatty...you always said, don’t face a problem, burn it. well, now I’ve done both. Goodbye, Captain” (Bradbury Montag has officially gone to an extreme.
Beatty refers to books as the problem, so you burn them. Here, Beatty was the problem, so Montag burned him. He knew that he was going to spread the book's knowledge throughout society some day.
He was brave and fought to have the one finger that he has on it now, which he considers a start.
Is going to continue to fight for the things he believe's is right.
