Burnham on the other hand is using the fair as an opportunity as a means of proving he could do something great after being rejected from Harvard (376). Burnham was a great man and a hard worker is contrast to Holmes who was evil and used murders and scams to get what he wanted. The juxtaposition between the two characters definitely improved the structure of the novel and helped it become better organized. They definitely worked well together because the two events did overlap and were connected. I however, would have preferred reading solely about Holmes and his murders because I just wasn’t all that interested in the Burnham plot.

He reads an excerpt of “Dover Beach” to Mildred and her friends, and this can be an extremely dangerous thing to do because he has a book. It takes extreme courage to break the law at all for the purpose of a good cause, which is what Montag was doing. ‘Behind each of these books, there's a man. That's what interests me.’ This quote can mean several things, but what sticks out the most is that Montag is actually trying to read them instead of just following everyone else, and burning the books. All throughout the book, Guy Montag stands up for what he believes is right and not like the dystopian government that takes place during that time.
The Han see technology as a way to help people work less and get things done quicker, but the Romans had an opposite thought, they didn’t care about the common people like the Han, the upper class Romans were using the technology to benefit themselves not the commoners, both the Han and Roman both find technology appealing.

Got books in his room.” It is apparent that “being a stable buck and a cripple,” he is more “permanent than the other men,” and the racism during that era would make it difficult for him to get another job, and his permanence indicating his inability to achieve the American Dream. Steinbeck writes this to demonstrate the severity and commonness of racial segregation during this period that the mere colour of your skin would denote what you would achieve in your whole life and separate you from the rest of the community as “Crooks said darkly, ‘Guys don’t come into a coloured man’s room very much’.” It is apparent that Crooks is lonely as “scattered about the floor were a number of personal possessions; for being alone, Crooks could leave his things about.” It may be argued that he is luckier than the rest of the ranch workers, who have to stay in the same room, and he has more personal space and the others don’t have as much. However the actual reason that he has this space is due to his colour again and he feels isolated. When Lennie enters his room, Crooks says sharply “I ain’t wanted in the bunk house, and you ain’t wanted in my room,” demanding equality.

A perfect example that showcases his attitude on equality is when Jem brings home Walter Cunningham because he “(drowned) (Walter’s) nose in dirt”.
