Nazi Hunting Essay

Nicole Ceraso 12/17/13
Mrs. Fialkow- Period 1 Fahrenheit 451

1. According to Beatty, the need for firemen started around the Civil War. Everything was fireproof, and there was no need for firemen to extinguish fires. Books caused issues among the world and fire fighters thought that it would be easier to destroy books. Beatty says “A book is a loaded gun in the house next door.” People in this society believed that books made people feel unequal.
2. An intellectual is someone who knows a lot about a lot of subjects and someone who is intelligent or bright. I believe that intellectual pursuits are valued in our society. I believe this because if you are an intellectual and if you are well rounded and bright, you will be successful and if you are an ...view middle of the document...

Montag has to make the decision of whether or not he likes his job. Some people today also have to make that same life changing decision. Another similarity is how Montag often questions his beliefs. Montag doesn’t know whether or not he wants to believe what Beatty is telling him. Montag also doesn’t know whether or not if he believes in his government or not. This relates to our society today because some people go against our government, or don’t know whether or not to trust our government or the people around them. I do not think that any of Bradbury’s disturbing prophecies are in danger or coming true because we live in a democracy and we have a say in our beliefs. Bradbury’s world is inhumane enough let alone over something so trivial as killing someone for reading a book.
4. I predict that Montag is never going to burn his books. I predict this because he is so into reading them. Montag is so curious as to find out the truth about the old world. Montag has been stealing books and hiding them in his ventilator for a somewhat long amount of time and he refuses to burn them yet. Montag wants to read a few pages in the books that he stole which I predict will lead him into reading the entire book and never wanting to burn them. I also predict that Montag will never show up for work again. I predict this because he already called in sick and does not like what he does for a living. Montag is unhappy. I think that Montag is going to become so addicted to reading about the old world, that the firemen are going to have to burn him and his house along with all of the books that he has.
5. One thing that puzzles me while reading this novel is how a world could get to be so harsh, where even just reading a book can lead to a death sentence. In our world today firefighters are helpful. I am puzzled on how firefighters can become cruel in the future. One thing that intrigues me is that Montag is thinking outside of the box and not following the rest of the people in his society. It amazes me that Montag is his own person in a world that is so harshly ruled.
