Storyboard Text

  • Concealing the Truth
  • And I thought about books. And for the first time I realized that a man was behind each one of the books. A man had to think them up. A man had to take a long time to put them down on paper. And I'd never even thought that thought before...It took some man a lifetime maybe to put some of his thoughts down, looking around at theworld and life, and then I came along in two minutes and boom! it's all over.
  • The books are all gone!
  • Conformity
  • This is what happens!
  • "It's like being a pedestrian, only rarer. My uncle was arrested another time-did I tell you?-for being a pedestrian. Oh, we're most peculiar." pg 9
  • "No. The same girl. McClellan. McClellan. Run over by a car. Four days ago. I'm not sure. But I think she's dead. The family move out anyway." pg 47
  • Controlling Government
  • "We burned a thousand books. We burned a woman." pg 50
  • Burn it all down!
  • Books are kept away from the citizens in the story and it helps the government conceal and cover up the truth and knowledge of the society. If one was to have books and found out, their house and the books would immediately be burned down by the firemen. The truth and knowledge about the world is concealed by the government.
  • In Fahrenheit 451, Clarisse and her uncle are examples of conformity in the society. Clarisse was thought to be a strange child and often was avoided for being different than others. She was later on killed in a car accident, leaving Montag to ponder about the true intention of the crash. Clarisse's uncle as well was considered strange since he had often gone against the government by actually looking at the details. He was arrested many times because he had paid more attention that others.
  • With books being burned daily by the firemen, books are considered as forbidden in Fahrenheit 451. The government does not allow the citizens to have books or to even let them read, but rather make them watch television and ignore all that happens. Books are burned and kept away so the citizens would not be able to access knowledge.
