Storyboard Text

  • The Introduction of Montag
  • Montag Influenced by Clarisse
  • Montag Grows Sick
  • This stage begins the novel with a valid showing of the true default person of Montag's society. He thinks little and only does. He performs the tasks of his job, but without understanding why. He (as shown later) is not truly happy, he is just an empty shell without purpose. As he burns flame he shows passive insanity, obsessing over flame like a mad man as he performs his task without asking any questions.
  • Montag Becomes a Student
  • In this section of the novel Montag makes his first observations such as realizing that he is not happy, and his human curiosity takes over when he steals a book. He also experiences Mildred's overdose. Mildred overdoses, and then denies it. Comparing her to Montag, she doesn't know she isn't happy but Montag is growing in self awareness and knows of his discontent. He fills his life's void, empty of purpose, love and knowledge, with curiosity and will eventually seek companionship and knowledge.
  • Montag Rebels
  • Montag develops his humanity more and more here. He experiences the consequences of killing the old woman. He also begins reading and reveals a small collection of books that he had been keeping. He starts showing emotion and is easily irritated . We also experience Beatty's monologue, and we are given context about why books are banned and we begin to understand the society and why people are the way they are in it. Montag starts using his humanity and smarts to form opinions, but he does not know the next step in his journey.
  • Montag Finds Fulfillment
  • Montag realizes that his next step is to be taught by another person. He again recalls Faber and decides to find him. He attempts to memorize the Bible and while doing so he gets annoyed and has an outburst. He loses control of himself because he is inexperienced with his emotions. Faber introduces his ideas to Montag and he begins to interpret them, which further develops his character to inevitable fulfillment. After some pushing from Montag, the two decide to stand up to their broken society
  • When there is a call at work to Montag's own house, he decides to confront Beatty. His humanity again lashes out and he brings his world down upon him. He kills Beatty and becomes a fugitive on the run, shown in the next section. Montag is revolting against against the society he resides in and is physically showing his anger. Early in this section Montag reads poetry to Mildred's friends and they start having breakdowns because they can't handle the poetry. They are so sensitive to thought that they handle poetry and it infuriates Montag
  • This section, which wraps up the novel but leaves it open ended, shows Montag finding what he has been searching for, answers, purpose, and companionship. He undergoes a vicious chase, but he escapes and a decoy is killed in his place to preserve the integrity of the mechanical hound. Montag meets the scholarly group, which bring inner peace to his newly discovered humanity which were previously destructive. The city is vaporized, which represents rebirth, like a phoenix rising again from its own ashes. The men return to the city to rebuild a better society.
