Storyboard Text

  • Dehumanization
  • Oh, how I love my family!
  • "How long you figure before we save up and get the fourth wall torn out and the forth wall TV put in? It's only two thousand dollars." pg. 20
  • Illusion of a Perfect Society
  • "They were like a monstrous crystal chandelier tinkling in a thousand chimes, he saw their Cheshire Cat smiles burning through the wall of the house, and now they were screaming at each other above the din." pg. 93
  • Oh Mildred, you have a perfectly lovely home! Of course, mine is a bit better, more...
  • Propoganda
  • "An innocent man stood bewildered, a cigarette burning in his hand. " pg. 149
  • Guy Montag, do not move, we have you surrounded!
  • In Fahrenheit 451, many people in the society are in love with television, since it has replaced books. Mildred is obsessed with buying more televisions. This is dehumanizing, making people become so attached to television that they don't value regular human life as much, due to the amount of death that is shown on television. Dehumanization makes it hard for the citizens of a dystopia to connect with one another, and makes it easier for the government to force horrible things upon the people since they don't think of them as human.
  • Mildred and her friends all like to have a good time by watching TV in the parlor or driving in their cars. It appears that Mildred and her friends are leading the perfect life, but if you look closer, you can note that they are not very educated, and that they are not truly happy. In Fahrenheit 451, is it said that Mildred and her friends have 'Cheshire Cat' smiles, indicating that the smiles are fake. This helps to show the reader that while the society in Fahrenheit 451 might seem like a good idea, but in reality you have to sacrifice education and emotion.
  • The government in Fahrenheit 451 likes to make it seem like they are perfect. This example of propaganda shows that when the government failed to locate Montag in the manhunt, they caught and killed an innocent man to make it seem like they had succeeded. The propaganda makes it hard for the citizens of a dystopian to think for themselves
