April 11th, 2013 Fahrenheit 451 Just like in real life, characters in books have virtues and vices. Ray Bradbury did an amazing job presenting a theme through his characters in his book Fahrenheit 451. The novel is about how books are illegal at the time because the government didn’t want people to think for themselves. They believed life would be much better if no one questioned things.

Aunt Alexandria too shows this behavior when Scout asks if Walter Cunningham can come over for lunch. Aunt Alexandria forbids that action saying, "…he is trash, that's why you can't play with him. I'll not have you around him, picking up his habits and learning Lord-knows-what” (301). Atticus taught the children that everyone is equal no matter what color your skin is or how rich you are, and Aunt Alexandria has a narrow-minded view of that belief.

Mother describes how Dee would read to her and Maggie “without pity; forcing words, lies, other folks' habits, whole lives upon us two, sitting trapped and ignorant underneath her voice” (104). The mother uses the words without pity, forcing, and trapped to show that she and Maggie had no choice but to listen to Dee.
