Fahrenheit 451 A-Z
A- Ashes
The thing left behind from the fires that Montag and the other firefighters left after they burnt the illegal books and the houses that were holding them.
The objects that were made illegal by the government and what at the beginning of the book Montag burned, but at the end hoped to save.
One of the characters that had a major impact on him in the beginning of the book, and made him start thinking about life more, and questioning the burning of books.
What happened when someone reported books being in someones house, the fireman came, burned the books and the house, and caused destruction the help the government strike fear into the people, so that they will obey the laws.

The book of the bible that Montag read and when the nuclear bomb hit he started recalling it, along with the book of Revelations.
Fire, the destructive force, the cleansing force. The force that the firemen use to burn the books and the houses that hold them. One fire caused a big change in Montag's life, the fire at his own house
G-Guy Montag
The full name of the main character, the man who at the beginning burned books, and then ended up trying to save them.
By regular definition, a dog, but is more than that, it is one of Montag's challenges, the mechanical hound. Over the peroid of time for dogs, at first they were wild, then humans tamed them and kept them as pets, and in this book, they are used as weapons.
Reporter in the news- "The mechanical hound never fails. Never scince its first use in tracking a quarry has this incredible invention made a mistake."
This Is what the government has over the people of the U.S. so much of this, and a combination of fear keeps them from wavering from obedience
The jets that bomb the city and other cities, and eventually carry in the nuclear bomb that levels the city.
"Burn all, burn everything. Fire is bright and fire is clean"-Captain Beatty
The liquid that the firemen use to help get their burning up and going. They pour it over the books and the house, then light it up and help it burn.
Light, the thing made by two themes of the book, fire and technology. As Captain Beatty said in a quote earlier, fire burns bright.
Montag's wife, she was always listening to her seashell.she reported the books he was keeping and then ran away. She was in the city when the nuclear bomb hit.
N-Nuclear bomb
At the end of the book, there was a nuclear bomb that the jets hit the city with and leveled it to rubble.
What everyone was to the government: obedient. They feel this way because of fear and influence. One of Mildred's friends ran out on her just because of a poem Montag recited, she was that obedient to government.
Montag's position in the story was somewhat like a phoenix, because at the beginning point, when he was burning books, he was in one life, then as he started getting interested in books, and then his house is burnt because of the books, and that symbolizes the death of the phoenix, and when he ran away and continued helping books, that symbolized his new life.
"But every time he burnt himself he up he sprang out of the ashes, he got himself born all over again."- Granger
Quotations are one of Beatty's many "weapons", he confuses his opponents and uses his other "weapons" in sync. to win the argument or other. We uses them many times to confuse Montag.
What Montag sets out to do with the ruins of the recently nuclear-bombed city. We are somewhat coming back to the phoenix idea here, and this is a rebirth.
The symbol of the firemen and what they call their truck. Montag has one etched on his igniter.
What people watch, this is one of the things that replaced books, but could have some important content that books had, but doesn't.
"It's not the books you need, it's some of the things that once were in books... The same infinite detail and awareness could be projected through radios and televisors, but are not."-Faber
One of the many things that were shut down because books were illegal. That is why Faber lost his job as a professor at one of the universities.
The place in the human body where the mechanical hound pumps its drugs into you, knocking you out, or killing you.
It may not seem like much, but it saved Montag's life while running away from the mechanical hound. Faber gave him some to pour on him, and it masked his smell from the mechanical hound long enough so that he could get away.
The relationship between Montag and Clarisse and the differences between them was almost xenial (A hospitable relationship between people from foreign cultures).
This is what the people like Montag and Beatty did when they were mad at something, or when they wanted someone to hear them.
The mechanical hound was zoomorphic because it had the shape, in general, or an animal, and that is what zoomorphic basically means.
