Fahrenheit 451 - Ray Bradbury

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 the 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 can take a pulp fiction book and transform it into a parable of a society gone completely awry. A society in which firemen burn books and the state suppresses learning.

Fahrenheit 451, by Ray Bradbury

Guy Montag is a fireman. His job is to destroy the most illegal of commodities, the printed book, along with the houses in which they are hidden. Montag never questions the destruction and ruin his actions produce, returning each day to his bland life and wife, Mildred, who spends all day with her television “family.” But when he meets an eccentric young neighbor, Clarisse, who introduces him to a past where people didn’t live in fear and to a present where one sees the world through the ideas in books instead of the mindless chatter of television, Montag begins to question everything he has ever known.
