They ridiculed the scholars for proposing knowledge that opposed the teachings of the Church regardless the extent of logic they had to back up their ideas. The Enlightenment was also an era for new jobs due to the new inventions. The Printing press was, without a doubt, the most famous creation of the era.

Nevertheless it is in fact through the authors’ depiction of these characters that they present crucial metaphors for the characteristics of oppression. Both authors can be seen as having negative reactions to contemporary political regimes.

This was due to the rapid rise of dictatorship in the mid twentieth century, in particularly the rise of Stalinism.

Real World Censorship Through the Pen of Ray Bradbury Ray Bradbury drew inspiration for his fiction work, Fahrenheit 451, from the political and social issues which confronted his generation. By fast forwarding his setting a hundred years into the future, Bradbury was able to effectively represent a governmental system which was rife with fear and directed much of its apprehension onto the people which they swore to serve.

Bradbury uses his novel to express his beliefs that the governments of his day had become overbearing and unjust. Bradbury uses symbolism to provide examples as to how governments had resorted to strict censorship and uses of propaganda to influence popular opinion.

Both the text 1984 and the film V for Vendetta are satires that criticize humanity, society, and individual thought.
