The author of the book Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury wrote the book on a library typewriter in 9 days. The fact that there are so many motifs and symbols in a story written in 9 days is astonishing. One of the symbols is the use of technology to express how easily people can be controlled by their surrounding environment. The television was invented by Philo T. Farnsworth in 1927 and ever since it was released people have been obsessed with them. On page 48-49 montag asks for his wife to turn off the tv because he is sick and she says no because it's family so she turns it down. This expresses that the mass surrounding of technology is taking over the society. The fact that they consider their tv family is absolutely absurd. But technology

Lois Lowry talks about how the choice of what you can think about has been taken away; this is essentially the same thing in Fahrenheit 451, except they mask their lack of choice with massive amounts of technology. As the novel begins, we….

Clarisse initiates the earliest changes in Montag’s character as she subtly forces him to develop his self-awareness. With this self-awareness, Montag is inspired and encouraged by Professor….
Ray Bradbury refers to the book of Revelation towards the end of Fahrenheit 451. Something that I find to be coincidental is that the book of Revelation is also the very last book of the bible. At the end of the book, when the bomb goes off, everything seems to go down hill. Montag seems to believe as if all hope is lost. Will things ever change for Montag and the others? Will society ever get better? Throughout Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury alludes to quotes that refer to something that….
