Fahrenheit 451- Ray Bradbury
In this novel, students will gain insight into a dystopian world, where all freedom is limited because the government limits the education of its citizens. Students will be able to see a glimpse of a world that is void of the ability to learn and research information we are given.
As with all dystopian fiction, the novel "amplifies troubling features of the world around us and imagines the consequences of taking them to an extreme." Bradbury is able to take a pulp fiction book and transform it into a parable of a society gone completely awry. A society for example, in which firemen burn books and the state suppresses learning.
