Fahrenheit 451– Man Montag, Mildred Montag, Captain Beatty, and Clarisse McClellan
Fahrenheit 451 involves such characters as Guy Montag, Mildred Montag, Captain Beatty, and Clarisse McClellan. Fahrenheit presents the firefighters as the tools of censorship and prohibited books. Considering that books rarely exist in their society they look not to things of intellectual worth, however to things with physical and non-thinking enjoyment. As individuals end up being zombies to television and the “4 walls,” which is a form of television in their society they end up being resistant to change. They like everything to occur nicely and naturally, much like the television shows.
Mildred, Montag’s spouse, becomes totally reliant upon the “4 walls” to not only bring her entertainment throughout the day, however to be a source of consistency. The programs on the television are very unintelligent and Montag’s question why Mildred watches it so much but there is never ever a real answer to his concern. He later on meet Clarisse McCellan who questions his life, and his happiness, Montag later on questions the society’s worths and pursues them to find out why books are banned and discovers himself captivated with them and learns the effects of reading in his society.
In “You Have Insulted Me” a letter by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. is another good example of censorship in our own society. That relates to Fahrenheit 451 concerning censorship but there is also a distinction in Fahrenheit 451 compared to the “the letter” by Vonnegut. In Fahrenheit the concept of censorship are no books what so ever since of the lack of society reading, however in “the letter” books are denied to more youthful readers and the general public due to the fact that of material, such as vulgarity, and sexuality. They both lack understanding that is given but never ever fully taken in and that makes them both a censored society/world.
Censorship is widely utilized in our society to avoid us from seeing or hearing things that might disrupt our environments. Is it right to censor or not, its difficult question which question appears in Fahrenheit 451, The Letter, and our own day to day life’s. In Fahrenheit and The Letter they were censored to better the society without knowing the true aspects of the life. Likewise in both stories it appears as though censorship is fear, afraid of something that might be terrific and even educated to society.
In Fahrenheit 451 the lack of books later turns the book in an avalanche result of conformity leading to the damage of Fahrenheit 451 society. Also in the story The Letter its leads to the banning of books to specific individuals primarily including school’s kids. Both stories relate very carefully since of content concerning censorship but they likewise have their distinction types of censorship however both take on the same roles of holding back details to the general public.
