Fire was meant to strike fear in the hearts of people, but yet Montag says “it was a pleasure to burn.” He didn’t understand what the consequences of him burning the books had, and neither did the rest of the world. Society was one mind, and one body; no longer filled with individuals. Fire was everywhere, so no one questioned it, just accepted it. At the same time Clarisse comes along as the exact opposite of fire. She was soft, gently, and seemed to be filled with a boisterous joy.

Fahrenheit 451 “Not everyone born free and equal, as the Constitution say, but everyone made equal.” (58) Captain Beatty claims here that people need to be made equal, lest people become unhappy. Beatty claims that it is the job of the fireman to uphold equality by burning books which show people’s inequalities. This is how Beatty misinterprets the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence by wanting to uphold the right to the pursuit of happiness, but as a fireman he forces people to be happy by taking away all unhappiness. “‘Play the man, Master Ridley; we shall this day light such a candle, by God’s grace, in England, as I trust shall never be put out.’” (36) This is a reference to Nicholas Ridley and Hugh Latimer.

He was but a simple man where book burning had become his favorite pastime. The books were his to burn, or were they? He was devoted to his work,
Frankenstein – Written Homework March 25, 2010 In the novel Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, I would consider Victor Frankenstein as a unique character. At first he was a boring child because nothing interesting was going on in his life besides his mother dying but I guess he was just a normal person which makes it hard to read because he had a normal childhood.
