Died -June 5th, 2012 Part 1: The Hearth and the Salamander Part 2: The Sieve and the Sand Part 3: Burning Bright Prejudice Deceiving Appearances Vocab Procaine-noun, A synthetic compound derived from benzoic acid, used as a local anesthetic, esp. in dentistry.
Anesthetize- to administer an anesthetic drug
Convoluted-Extremely complex & difficult to follow
Saccharine- overly sweet
Filigree- is a delicate kind of jewelery metalwork, usually of gold and silver Isolation TCDSB trustee squash motion to
ban gay-straight alliance clubs Summary May 23, 2013-Trustee Garry Tanuan motioned ban on GSAs claiming that “Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) clubs promote a positive view of homosexual activity, which undermines Catholic teaching on chastity and marriage."
Students argued that GSAs are more about making schools as safe as possible for ALL students regardless of ANY differences
Trustees voted 7-4 against motion b/c goes against Accepting Schools act (allows any student in Canada to start GSA group) Parallels with Prejudice Fahrenheit 451: Professor Faber thinks literature impacts the world & enriches peoples lives
Other people think he was crazy b/c they think books conflict to peoples thoughts
Student's of Francis Libermann's GSA group believe that their club creates a safer environment within their school
One trustee thought they were crazy and said that they had to "answer to God" for the club they are supporting --> also thought it conflicts with people's faith Prejudice Deceiving Appearances Justice Isolation Destructive Characters To Kill a Mockingbird: Arthur Radley, is nicknamed “Boo” and is seen as a ghost like, horrid man who kills people.
Children discover he is a gentle & shy man who ended up risking his life for them
Miss Dubose is also seen as a mean & racist lady who actually turns out to be strong while on her death bed, fighting her morphine addiction.
Fahrenheit 451: Guy Montag is a fireman who burns books and is seen as a helper for the killing of literature.
--> readers find out that he has been hiding books and likes literature. To Kill a Mockingbird: Mayella, a white woman accuses Tom Robinson, a black crippled man, of rape.
Prejudice in Maycomb makes it inevitable that he will be seen in the courts eyes as guilty b/c the best defense & evidence still cannot deter their pre-determined judgements
This act of prejudice is similar to that of Fahrenheit 451 where society has banned books, and deemed them wrong when the books are treated like the black people of Maycomb County To Kill a Mockingbird: Atticus stands up for Tom Robinson while family questions why he is doing it & as a result is called a "nigger lover."
Fahrenheit 451: Guy Montag believes literature should be given another chance
Wife betrays him & has their house set on fire because of his beliefs To Kill a Mockingbird: lack of justice by the fact that they hold discrimination higher than justice.
Atticus is the voice of justice & is over ruled b/c people in Maycomb are racist & can not open their eyes to the truth
Fahrenheit 451: has a lack of justice through burning down someone’s home b/c they think books are evil & manipulative
Claims books make people believe the wrong thing To Kill a Mockingbird: Aunt Alexandra is a destructive character as she tries to break the Finch family household by telling Atticus to get rid of Calpurnia & attempts to change the Finch children to conform more to society
Ewells also take Tom Robinson from his family & their source of income by lying then trying to murder the Finch children
Fahrenheit 451: Guy Montag’s wife betrays him & destroys his dream while Guy is forced to destroy his house whilst feeling how everyone else felt while their house was being burnt down by him Revelation
By: Robert Frost Prejudice Inherit the Wind: townspeople viewed the idea of human creation being from evolution as completely wrong.
Mere thought of Darwin’s theory lead to the possible imprisonment of anyone who supported it
Fahrenheit 451: people believed that books were unnecessary & caused conflicting ideas within the minds of the people
-->If one thought otherwise & disobeyed this law by reading literature/housing books, their home would be burned down along w/books. Deceiving Appearances Inherit the Wind: Brady is seen as a stable political leader worthy of praise as if he were a king by the people of Hillsboro
--> Readers then find out he is the opposite & an insecure man consumed by his desire to succeed
Fahrenheit 451: Guy Montag is portrayed as a typical, stoic fireman, the destroyer of literature
--> Nearing the end of the book, the reader sees Guy as a lost & confused man who feels empty. Justice Inherit the Wind: contains a trial b/w God & Darwin’s theory of Evolution where Cates, the person who was teaching Darwin’s theory loses the battle because the law still stated that the children were to be learning about God creating man.
This injustice is similar to that of Fahrenheit 451 where if someone were reading books & thinking differently than someone else about what they have to offer, their house would be burned down and they would be sent to jail. http://www.citynews.ca/2013/05/23/tcdsb-trustees-squash-motion-to-ban-gay-straight-alliance-clubs/ The Help: the Caucasians considered themselves above those who are dark-skinned; they were seen as worthless b/c of the color of their skin Fahrenheit 451: society was against those who did not conform to their belief that books are evil, as well as those who simply acted differently For example, the firemen kept an eye on Clarisse & her family b/c they worked against the school system; they tried making her an individual and not like the rest of her peers By day, Eugenia "Skeeter" Phelan was the typical southern lady everyone expected her to be; she attended town meetings, had tea with the high-class women, and edited the local paper. By night, she interviewed the coloured maids of Jackson, intending to publish their stories of mistreatment in a novel Similarly, Guy Montag believes that books are no longer bad after reading several he had hidden away. However, he makes it appear as though he thinks the opposite by giving Captain Beatty a book to burn Skeeter became exiled from the rest of society upon the discovery that she was responsible for exposing the mistreatment of the blacks This is like the seclusion of the group of professors who live in the forest outside of the city, since they believe that literature is beneficial The Loops of Fruit Presents... 'Satanic' Harry Potter Books Burnt Isolation
Inherit the Wind: Drummond is isolated from society in his thoughts of being an agnostic yet still believing that the Bible & Darwin’s Theory of Evolution could not exist without each other.
Fahrenheit 451: the group of former professors are one of the only groups that memorizes the works of literature to attempt preserving the art. Similar to being in alone in their thoughts like Drummond, they believe that books have much to offer to society as they teach us different ideas and thoughts, to speak out on what we believe and hear what other have to say about the topic. We make ourselves a place apart Behind light words that tease and flout. But oh, the agitated heart. Till someone find us really out 'tis pity if the case require (Or so we say) that in the end Prejudice We speak the literal to inspire The understanding of a friend. Parallels In a poison tree, there are two characters who are angry at each other, much like the society in Fahrenheit 451.
Majority of society is against books, while there is a small group who believe that they have benefits. These two parts of society are at odds with each other just like the two men in the poem. One of the men steals fruit from his friend, which is a representation of the book-hating part of society taking literature away from those who are well read
Finally, the man who stole the fruit dies. At the end of Fahrenheit 451, the group of professors who still believed in books lived, while they watched their city crumble as a result of the nuclear bombs Guy Montag is a firefighter, but instead of fighting fires, he starts them in the homes of people who have broken the law
by reading books. One night, he leaves the station after starting
a fire and meets his new neighbour,
Clarisse McClellan. She fascinates him by asking
peculiar questions such as, " Are you happy?" He later goes home to his wife, Mildred, who overdosed on sleeping pills. After being hospitalized and granted permission to leave they go home.Soon Montag takes a sleeping pill of his own. But so with all, from babes that play At hide-and-seek to God afar So all who hide too well away Must speak and tell us where they are Analysis Frost speaks about liars who make themselves into something they are not
Evidence in S1, "Behind light words that tease and flout," meaning individuals who do lie, do so by saying words that tease and ridicule.
"But, oh, the agitated heart/till someone finds us really out," explains that eventually the lie will catch up to the person who started it & will face the consequences Parallels Millie, scared of her house being burned down, warns husband about the consequences of his actions
-->montag lectures her about what would happen if he did not educate himself about the world
Tells her about the poverty world wide & wars will not stop. Montag then asks Professor Faber about how many copies of the Bible are left and he replies that there are none and hangs up
Montag asks him to help him understand the books he was reading before the emptiness that society has now that books being burned Plan to bring down the book burning system by putting books in fireman's homes & calling alarms to make people realize the people shielding them are not who they seem to be
-->To instil passion into Faber, Montag begins ripping pages out of the Bible making Faber agree to print copies of books for them Beatty begins quoting from literature & Faber advises Montag to keep quiet, alarm goes off and when they go to answer, it's Montag's home Afterwards, they get an alarm & go to a house w/ an attic filled with books. One of them falls into Guy's hand & he takes it.
--> owner of the books, an old lady, refuses to leave & is burned along w/her book Montag is with his wife, who tells him about her "Tv Family."
He tells her he hadn't seen Clarisse in 4 days. She replies that her family moved and thinks that Clarisse was hit by a car Montag does not want to go to work the next morning & asks his wife to call in sick Summary Christ Community Church Parishioners organized an event to burn all Harry Potter novels & any other objects said to be "the devil"
Although most readers do not believe that Harry Potter is promoting dark magic, some joined in on the bonfire
Seven hundred Potter fans joined on the other side of the street to protest against the book burning This idea is similar to that of Fahrenheit 451 as Guy Montag lies about how he really feels about books & what the have to offer
To cover up the truth about his thoughts, he becomes a fire man, burning the works of art however, the lie catches up to him when he sees a woman who would rather die with her books than be without them
He exposes himself to a professor and his wife then faces the consequences by having to burn his own house. Parallels In The Merchant of Venice, people judge Shylock simply because he is a Jew; he is humiliated and tormented by Antonio because of it.
Similarly, in Fahrenheit 451, those who believe books are good are considered outcasts and are exiled from society. They are judged for their beliefs and not by their personality Fahrenheit 451: burning books was significant because it takes freedom away from people and they thought people who read books were outcasts
Books considered evil similar to how the parishioners thought Harry Potter books were evil
The destruction of any book contributes to re-writing history by not granting people access to key information Deceiving Appearances Beatty forces Montag to burn his house & after Faber tells him to run away he goes to Faber’s house & Faber advises Montag to find a homeless camp
When he gets to the train tracks, he finds a group of odd looking men who recognize him from the television where they are showing the mechanical hound looking for him Justice The characters in both the novel and the play hide their true selves for benevolent reasons:
In The Merchant of Venice: Portia and Nerissa disguise themselves as men to save Antonio from Shylock's need for revenge
Guy Montag hides his realization that books are good, in order to try finding a way to bring them back into society. Granger, the leader of the group then introduces himself & the group & he finds out they are old intellectuals who each memorized a work of literature in hopes of preserving them until it was safe to print them again
In the morning, enemy bombs annihilate the city and the men then set off towards the city to begin its rebirth. In the Merchant of Venice justice is restored by the end of the play when Shylock is caught in a loop hole and forced to withdraw the bond in addition to losing all his wealth and converting to Christianity. This is seen as an act of mercy towards Shylock as he could be sentenced to death. By the audience, this is justice as the antagonist loses and things return to normal.
Likewise, in Farenheit 451 contains justice where by the end of the book, the city is annihalated and its rebirth can start. Even though destruction happened, it was for the better and that is justice. Proboscis- is an elongated
