The literature most likely talks bad about the government. Montag is curious to learn why the government does not want citizens to read. Most people understand that certain literature must contain something that is not appropriate for the common people. Some rebellious people go against the government and try to figure out what these violating books
Such as parents banning books so their children do not have to read books that they think are inappropriate. I believe books should not deserve to be banned in Liberty High School because we Junior High School students deserve to read unique kinds of books so we can experience the different qualities that books have. For instance, in my high school career, I have read books that have been banned but there are two specific books that I’ve been concerned of; which is Flowers for Algernon and Romeo and Juliet. A number of parents have banned these two specific books
This fear leads to the inevitable trepidation of books themselves. When Guy Montag presents his collection of books to his wife she, "backed away as if suddenly confronted by a pack of mice..." (66). Today, people fear the criticism of society. Children who constantly read are referred to as nerds, outcasts, loners, and even weird. With such hostility aimed at those who do read, others simply do not wish to be the victim of such negativity.
The result is a society where fanatical, destructive behavior, such as the firemen's book-burning, flourishes. People in Montag’s society have been conditioned to think the suggestion of reading is a laughable subject as expressed in the quote, “Do you ever read any of the books you burn?’ He laughed. ‘That's against the law!’ ‘Oh. Of course.’” (8). The people in Montag’s society are banned by their government to read anything that has any philosophies or intellectual thought.
People should be able to decide what they want and don’t want to read. Throughout the years, books like, “The Adventure of Huckleberry Finn” and “The Catcher in the Rye” have been ridiculed for the way they are written, and the solution is already there and movie ratings are a step to how books should be determined. Huck Finn is, to this day, treated with malevolence for its extensive use of the “N” word. There is certain indignation for the people trying to censor this book, but the books uses that word to show time period and emphasize character. The novel has much to
When it comes to what children are reading, people only think of the bad things and what the book is about. They don’t look at how it could possibly benefit them! I think that students should be able to read books that appeal to their beliefs and culture. It could help them learn more about themselves and their religion; they can’t do that if those books are banned from school libraries and bookstores! Book banning has been going on for the past two thousand years but people still read those books!
If she is a perfect person, she will not say such words that hurt her parents. Therefore, people can tell that Hazel is not too perfect in the story and if people continue to read some parts of the story, they will find more examples that show Hazel is not a perfect person. Another review on Amazon says that people want to stop reading at the end of chapter one because they feel bored with the story. I believe after chapter one the story has some interesting occurrences even though I
As the government had strict censorship on books and journals when information did get through it would usually be made even more powerful as the government had attempted to ban it. Also due to the fact that free speech was denied political parties were driven underground and led the political activists to extremism. Also with the use of the Okerana as a secret police force many people were unsettled by the government using them against their own people. With the programme of industrialisation creating factories and jobs in cities many peasants moved there in a hope of a better life. However what they found was poor pay, poor housing and with trade unions being banned they had no one to help them.
Its awful, if I am on my way to the store to buy a magazine, even, and somebody asked me where I am going, I am liable to say I am going to the opera. It is terrible” (ch.3) You can see why the main charter in Catcher in the Rye is a poor role model for the youth of today. In the final analysis has strong use of languages, a lot of mature content and some inappropriate behaviour. This book is not appropriate for young audience. The recommended audience would be adults or older youth, therefore it shouldn’t be taught in high school
114). This type of literature can cause parents to have concern, because there is a lot of racist language involved in the book, and many parents may feel that this may teach their kids that it will be okay to use this type of language everyday. Since some parents may feel that way about the literature, they may want to object and maybe ban the book from the
