I memorized the entire poem Dover Beach because it is the selection Bradbury chose to have Montag read aloud to his wife and her friends. As the years roll by, and I age through my 20s and 30s, I noticed that fewer and fewer of the people I know read any books. Even my avid reading friends from childhood moved on to their careers, their marriages, their children. In the late 1990s a friend invited me to his house to show off a proud new purchase - a television screen the size of one of his walls. I mention how frightening this was, that he was basically mainlining Bradbury's foreshadowing. He handed me a beer and fired up Star Wars; told me to relax. I watched the movie and felt like a traitor. • ^ De Koster, Katie, ed. (2000). Readings on Fahrenheit 451. Literary Companion Series. San Diego, CA: Greenhaven Press. p. 31. ISBN 1-56510-857-4.

He is married but has no children. One fall night while returning from work, he meets his new neighbour, a teenage girl named Clarisse McClellan, whose free-thinking ideals and liberating spirit cause him to question his life and his own perceived happiness. Montag returns home to find that his wife Mildred has overdosed on sleeping pills, and he calls for medical attention. Two uncaring EMTs pump Mildred's stomach, drain her poisoned blood, and fill her with new blood. After the EMTs leave to rescue another overdose victim, Montag goes outside and overhears Clarisse and her family talking about the way life is in this hedonistic, illiterate society. Montag's mind is bombarded with Clarisse's subversive thoughts and the memory of his wife's near-death. Over the next few days, Clarisse faithfully meets Montag each night as he walks home. She tells him about how her simple pleasures and interests make her an outcast among her peers and how she is forced to go to therapy for her behavior and thoughts. Montag looks forward to these meetings, and just as he begins to expect them, Clarisse goes missing. He senses something is wrong.

The common reading of the First Amendment is that commitment to free speech is not the acceptance of only non-controversial expressions that enjoy general approval. To accept a commitment to the First Amendment means, in the words of Justice Holmes, "freedom for what we hate." As quoted in Students' Right to Read (NCTE, 1982), "Censorship leaves students with an inadequate and distorted picture of the ideals, values, and problems of their culture. Writers may often be the spokesmen of their culture, or they may stand to the side, attempting to describe and evaluate that culture. Yet, partly because of censorship or the fear of censorship, many writers are ignored or inadequately represented in the public schools, and many are represented in anthologies not by their best work but by their safest or least offensive work."

After graduating from high school, Bradbury's family could not afford for him to attend college so Bradbury began spending time at the Los Angeles Public Library where he essentially educated himself. [26] As a frequent visitor to his local libraries in the 1920s and 1930s, he recalls being disappointed because they did not stock popular science fiction novels, like those of H. G. Wells, because, at the time, they were not deemed literary enough. Between this and learning about the destruction of the Library of Alexandria, [27] a great impression was made on the young man about the vulnerability of books to censure and destruction. Later, as a teenager, Bradbury was horrified by the Nazi book burnings [28] and later by Joseph Stalin's campaign of political repression, the " Great Purge", in which writers and poets, among many others, were arrested and often executed.

Brought up controversially by family that appear to shun modern ways, Clarisse has a way about her that causes Montag to start to challenge so many of the things he’d previously accepted.

In the first half of the scene, the faint strains of “Thank You” — the song that captured the bond between Camille and her rehab roommate, Alice — can be heard in the apartment, a musical signal that Camille and Amma are truly connected now. But as soon as Camille starts eyeballing that dollhouse, the track changes to the ominous opening of “In the Evening,” a song we’ve heard before, but one that always cuts out just before the explosive arrival of Jimmy Page’s sliding guitar riff. This time, the riff arrives right after Amma’s pseudo-admission of guilt — “Don’t tell mama” — and just as the credits begin. Hearing that section of the song is the audio equivalent of a last puzzle piece sliding into place, and a reminder to keep paying attention even after we already think we’ve gotten to the end. • June 2019 • • The Collected Stories of Ray Bradbury (2011, 2014) • SHSAT • ILL Requests • Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) • December 2016 • ^ a b c Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 audio guide.

If you had to memorize a single book or risk its extinction, which book would you choose? Literature is truth. Whether it be fiction or nonfiction, somewhere in the world, it is someone 's truth.

It is a vast world in which any one can live and explore, thrive. Ideas and knowledge are stored. Mistakes are logged and learning is developed. Literature defines humankind. So why would the Government take it away? In Ray Bradbury’s novel, Fahrenheit 451, Guy Montag lingers in a world where literature is burned by fireman in front of the reader’s eyes. The Government fears intellect and view-points, so they remove it. They burn it. And Montag never questioned this. In fact, he loved it. He loved to burn. But after meeting a strange intellect named, Clarisse, he started questioning everything he ever believed as routine.

Too many people were afraid of their shadows; there was a threat of book burning. Many of the books were being taken off the shelves at that time. And of course, things have changed a lot in four years. Things are going back in a very healthy direction. But at the time I wanted to do some sort of story where I could comment on what would happen to a country if we let ourselves go too far in this direction, where then all thinking stops, and the dragon swallows his tail, and we sort of vanish into a limbo and we destroy ourselves by this sort of action.

We don’t even have the most famous songs in here, but people know a Led Zeppelin song. It’s about how substantial they are. And I think it’s an homage to Jean-Marc.
