Storyboard Text

  • In the society, people who secretly own books are eventually reported.  The books are burned and the owners are taken away.  Books are the secret that is being kept from the people of the society because they tell the truth about the world.  They are burned so that people no longer get a chance to read them, learn, think, and rebel against the society’s ideal.
  • The truth is kept secret
  • How many copies of Shakespeare and Plato?
  • None!  You know as well as I do.  None!
  • People under the illusion that society is perfect
  • The Seashells that people “tune-in” to everyday influences them.  The information that is transmitted is controlled so anything the society wants people to hear will go through.  If they want people to think they live in a perfect world, they’ll depict soothing, ideal images.
  • Society has been dehumanized
  • In addition to children killing each other, Mildred’s friend, Mrs. Phelps, doesn’t care if her husband dies in the upcoming war.  Additionally, while Montag is on the run, some kids in a car try to run him over for fun.  The people in the society have been dehumanized.  Their feelings, especially compassion, and the value of human life has been eradicated almost completely.
  • I’m afraid of children my own age.  They kill each other.
  • Six of my friends have been shot in the last year alone.  Ten of them died in car wrecks.  I’m afraid of them and they don’t like me because I’m afraid.
  • Individuality is seen as a bad thing.
  • Clarisse thought about many things and talked about a time before the technological advances society made and book burning was widespread. She was killed later because she thought too much.
  • I rarely watch the ‘parlor walls’ or go to races or Fun Parks. So I’ve lots of time for crazy thoughts, I guess. Have you seen the two-hundred-foot-long billboards in the country  beyond town? Did you know that once billboards were only 20 feet long?
  • Montag shows the hostile control in this quote by representing the changes in feelings of the citizens and firemen.
  • Citizens are under harsh control of belief
  • Main protagonist questions society
  • Montag questions his happiness in society
  • Of course I’m happy. What does she think? I’m not?
