The Hearth and the Salamander Mildred Montag Captain Beatty The Hound Let's Meet The Protagonist Guy Montag Clarisse McClellan Finally, we get to see
what Montag's job is all about. WTF... Chapter 2:
And the Sand "Consider the lilies of the field..." "They toil not-..." "Consider the lilies, the lilies, the lilies..." Denham's Dentrifice Denham's- Denham's Dental Detergent!! "I voted last election, same as everyone, and I laid it on the line for President Noble.I think he's one of the nicest looking men ever became president."
"Oh, but the man they ran against him!"
"He wasn't much, was he? Kind of small and homely and he didn't shave too close or comb his hair very well."
"What possessed the 'Outs' to run him? you just don't go running a little short man like that against a tall man. Besides- he mumbled. Half the time I couldn't hear a word he said. And the words I did hear I didn't understand!
"Fat, too, and didn't dress to hide it. No wonder the landslide was for Winston Noble. Even their names helped. Compare Winston Noble to Hubert Hoag for ten seconds and you can almost figure the results."
(Bradbury 110). Dover Beach
The Sea of Faith
Was once, too, at the full and round earth's shore
Lay like the folds of a bright girdle furled.
But now I only hear
Its melancholy, long, withdrawing roar,
Retreating, to the breath
Of the night-wind, down the vast edges drear
And naked shingle of the world.
Ah, love let us be true
To one another! for the world, which seems
To lie before us like a land of dreams,
So various, so beautiful, so new,
Hath really neither joy, nor love, nor light,
Nor certitude, nor peace, nor help for pain;
And we are here as on a darkling plain
Swept with confused alarms of struggle and flight,
Where ignorant armies clash by night.
"Mrs. Phelps was crying." Montag's

Wallop, Bing, Bong, Boom! Digests- digests, digest-digest-digests. Politics? One Column, Two sentences, a headline! Then, in mid-air, all vanishes! Whirl man's mind around about so fast under the pumping hands of publishers, exploiters, broadcasters that the centrifuge flings off all unnecessary, time-wasting thought! 'Sweet food of sweetly uttered knowledge,' Sir Philip Sydney said 'Words are like leaves and where they most abound, Much fruit of sense beneath is rarely found.' Alexander Pope. -There shallow draughts intoxicate the brain, and drinking largely sobers us again.' Pope. Same essay. 'A little learning is a dangerous thing. Drink deep, or taste not the Pierien spring;- "What'll it be this time?Why don't you belch Shakespeare at me, you fumbling snob? There is no terror, Cassius, in your threats, for I am arm'd so strong in honesty that they pass by me as an idle wind, which I respect not! how's that? Go ahead now, you second- hand literateur, pull the trigger." Montag Beatty Society Background Author's Purpose Language Legacy Grew up during the Great Depression
