Transcript of Fahrenheit 451

1. Do you ever read any of the books you burn?
He laughed."That's against the law."(Bradbury 12) The Hearth & The Salamander This quote is significant because,when Clarisse Mclellan is asking him, he denys it because he doesn't and it is against the law yet throughout the story this changes when Montag goes on his life changing journey.Which makes this quote ironic because he actually ends up reading the books even though they're against the law. Fahrenheit 451Final Project 2. "You can stop counting."(Bradbury 43) This quote is said by Mrs.Blake when the firemen are trying to get her out of her house so they can burn the books but she refuses.This signifies plot development because when the woman lights a match herself on her books just so that the firemen couldn't burn them,it gets him thinking what is so good about these books that you would die for them.So without this part of the story,it may have not led Montag on his journey. 3. Cram them full of noncombustible data,chock them so damned full of facts they feel stuffed, but absolutely brilliant information.(Bradbury 64) This quote is said when Beatty is giving Montag a lecture and when he says all this,he's saying why books bring nothing but trouble without even really saying that exactly.This is actually showing character devolopement in Beatty's character because he knows about books from the references he makes to them, so it gives off hints that maybe he was going through what Montag was but just never went fully through with it. The Sieve & The Sand 4. Armando Perez P.4 Maybe the books can get us half out the cave. This is said by Montag when he is scolding Mildred that books aren't the problem but society is and books are the answer.This relates back to Montag's character devolopement because in this very speech is one of the first time he stands up for what he believes and that is that the books shouldn't be being burnt but read. 5. Do you know why books such as ths are important? Because they have quality.(Bradbury 85) When Faber is state this he's telling Montag that he's wrong about the books and how there's nothing good/magical about them.When he does this it helps Montag realize that it's not the books, it's what's inside them.This would relate to the knowledge theme aspect of the book so that's why it's significant 6. I've never heard any dead man killed in a war.(Bradbury 97) When Mrs.Phelps is saying this I find it ironic to at least our society in this time because,in our time that is one of the many ways people dies.War always leads to death somehow, so I find it strange that Bradbury would put this in here. Burning Bright 7. Old Montag wanted to fly near the sun and now that he's burnt his damn wings,he wonders why. In this quote that Beatty is saying to Montag he is referencing the Daedalus & Icarus allusion by how Icarus did not heed Daedalus's warning by not to fly near the sun which led to the burning of his wings.Beatty uses this allusion to Montag on how he warned Montag not to read with the books and he still did which now lead to the burning of his house. 8. "What is there about fire that makes it so lovely? No matter what age we are, what draws us to it."; The thing man wanted to invent but never did. In these quotes Beatty is talking to Montag about fire, but he's referencing the poem called "The Tiger" by William Blake.Beatty references the fire as something so beautiful and yet so deadly and why are people drawn to something so deadly, just as Blake does with the tiger in his poem "The Tiger".Also this realates to the theme of imagery specifically with the tiger persay. 9. "At least you were a fool about the right things," Faber tells Montag this after Montag tells Faber that he himself was a fool down the line.He says this because it's true if he hadn't been a "fool" then he may have ended up arrested or worst so this would relate to the paradox theme because throughout this whole begining part of burning bright it has been a paradox between life & death. 10. But we've got one damn thing the phoenix never had.We know the damn silly thing we just did. When Granger speaks this he's referencing the allusion of the phoenix and how now matter how many times it killed itself/died it would always come back and he's comparing it to their society but he says it has to be done.So every once in a while they destroy their society except few and after just wait for it to start over.This realtes to the plot development and with this said the plot has been finished because now it has unraveled what happens to society and how Montag ended up.
