The Introduction of Montag (pg.3-8)
Montag Infuenced by Clarisse (pg.9-40)
Montag Grows Sick (pg.41-68)
In the beggining of the story, Montag, a fireman who burns books, demonstrated no sense of moral consciousness . This can be seen in his brief conversation with Clarisse when he states,"Monday burn Millay, Wednesday Whitman, Friday Faulkner, burn em' to ashes, then burn the ashes.That's our official slogan"(Pg.6). This shows that Montag is honored by his job as he can easily recite the slogan indicating he is currently proud of what he does.
Although he remained true to his character, the same night he had spoken briefly with Clarisse, he had already begun to question his life and whether he was actually happy at home and work. "He wore his hapiness like a mask and the girl had run off across the lawn with the mask and there was no way of going to knock on her door and ask for it back"(Pg.9). As he actually sat down and thought about it, he realized he was not happy with his wife or his career. More of Clarisse's influence can be seen later on when he felt remorseful for burning down a woman's house with her still in it as well as taking a book.
After burning the old woman and taking a book from her house, he stayed home, because he claimed he was not feeling well. He was sick. Not physically, but emotionally for what he had done. "I'll never come in again, thought Montag"(pg.60). By this point, simply the idea of returning to that place filled him with disgust as he no longer wished to step foot in the fire station again. He was also afraid to face Beatty, his boss, with thebook he had stolen.
