  • Fahrenheit 451 - 351 words
    Fahrenheit 451 "We don't read and write poetry because it's cute, we read and write poetry because we are members of the human race and the human race is full of passion." Mr. Keating said this to try to get his class to look beyond writing poems because the teacher told them to and because that is what they have done for years. But to write poems that meant something and had passion. In Fahrenheit 451, they use "man's best friend", the dog, against man. I think the author picked the dog rather than another animal because it is known to be man's best friend. The dogs have always been loyal to man and he was trying to make it show how bad things can be. "Two roads diverged in the woods and I, ...

  • Fahrenheit 451 - 764 words
    Fahrenheit 451 John F. Kennedy once said, Conformity is jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth. This quote relates directly to the novel Fahrenheit 451, by Ray Bradbury. According to this statement, when a person is told how to live their own lives they often forget to make their own decisions, and they are no longer their own person. Conformity is following all commands and laws regardless of one's own beliefs. In the story, Guy Montag followed the rules set forth by the government, never second-guessing them. He never once thought of what these regulations really meant, or what the effects of his actions were. He never really experienced freedom. This quote expresses the changes that he ...

  • Fahrenheit 451 - 1,145 words
    Fahrenheit 451 The society in Fahrenheit 451 has many similarities along with many differences of our modern day American society. Some of the similarities of our society and the society in Fahrenheit 451 are that in our society, which is becoming more and more technologically advanced, individuals are demanding things to become faster and faster. As with the society in Fahrenheit 451, everything is fast and readily available at the touch of a fingertip.

  • Fahrenheit 451 - 989 words
    Fahrenheit 451 Light, especially fire, and darkness are significantly reoccurring themes in Fahrenheit 451. Guy Montag, the main character, is a fireman, but in this futuristic world the job description of a fireman is to start fires wherever books are found; instead of putting them out. Montag takes a journey from a literary darkness to a knowledgeable light. This journey can be compared to the short story Allegory of the Cave by Plato, in which a prisoner experiences a similar journey. An example of light, in reference to knowledge, occurs just after Montag meets Clarisse for the first time. "When they reached her house all its lights were blazing" (9). Since Montag had rarely seen that ma ...

  • Fahrenheit 451 - 598 words
    Fahrenheit 451 Ray Bradburys satire, Fahrenheit 451, is a novel full of symbols criticizing the modern world. Among those symbols appears The Hound. The Hounds actions and even its shape are reflections of the society Bradbury has predicted to come. Montags world continues on without thought; without any real reason. There is no learning, no growth, and no purpose. "The Mechanical Hound slept but did not sleep, lived but did not live in its gently humming, gently vibrating, softly illuminated kennel back in the dark corner of the firehouse" (24), wrote Bradbury to describe this hound. Like the hound, society was alive yet dead as well, drudging through life; mindless. The Hound was a program ...

  • Fahrenheit 451 By Bradbury - 549 words
    Fahrenheit 451 By Bradbury In Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, Montag is given the choice to memorize many books. He is also given the choice to learn many different pieces from the Bible. Ecclesiastes is a great choice for Montag to memorize. There are many different bits of information from Ecclesiastes that are very similar to the several details and events that occur in Fahrenheit 451. Ecclesiastes talks about vanity in mans private life, vanity in civil life, and also, true wisdom. All of these are heavily cited in the book. This is why I feel that Montag should have memorized Ecclesiastes. Vanity in mans private life was a major theme in the book. Just look at how Mildred complained abo ...

  • Fahrenheit 451 Is A Futuristic Novel, Telling The Story Of A Time Where Books And Independent Thinking Are Outlawed In A Time - 731 words
    Fahrenheit 451 is a futuristic novel, telling the story of a time where books and independent thinking are outlawed. In a time so unenlightened, where those who want to better themselves by thinking, are outlawed and killed. Books and ideas are destroyed, books are incinerated, where as ideas thinking becomes a danger to society and is not tolerated. Bradbury uses literary devices, such as symbolism, in which he portrays thethoughts of man. The book recalls the effects of the Nazi's, and their destruction of literature and text, in a new day and age. Symbolism is a key element to understanding the book and its message of anti-censorship and common ignorance. The Hearth and the Salamander, th ...

  • Failure Is A Step Towards Success - 603 words
    "Failure Is A Step Towards Success" It is amazing when people are faced with failure, how they can turn it around to create success from that failure. In both short stories "The Lamp At Noon" and "The Blue Kimono", George, Marthe and Ellen showed some type of failure. Then, turning it around and making a success out of it. Ellen was the first one that I noticed, since the first short story was "The Lamp At Noon". She definitely failed at first, but picked herself up and created a little success. This was shown when she was being nasty to Paul, making him sound like a failure because he wouldn't leave their house in the storm. But, in fact she was the real failure. Paul knew that the storm wa ...

  • Fair Stood The Wind For France - 737 words
    Fair Stood The Wind For France Bates is a Romance Fiction set at the height of World War Two. The story follows the main character, John Franklin, through his journey when he brings his aircraft down into occupied France. The novel deals with love, war, isolation and conflict; although there is no specific theme to the book. I felt that the books purpose was very clear. Bates wanted to show that within all the horrors of war, two people were able to find love and happiness. Franklin had crashed his plane and his arm was severely damaged. Yet while looking for help he found a wonderful family, and if that had not happened then Franklin would never have been able to meet Francoise. Bates make ...

She told him to love her, love her, love her (240) because she knew the end result would be pain. Miss Havisham ended up making Pip's life miserable.

    Faith And Belief In every day life we experience many internal conflicts and crisis. These crises often manifest themselves as moral dilemmas and are a part of being human.

He roamed the barren landscapes and searched under all rocks. Until one day he found something. It was a hole, a hole that seemed bottomless. So he threw a rock down it.
