Storyboard Text

  • Oppressive Government
  • Illusion of Perfection
  • Individuality was a big part in Ray Bradbury's novel, Fahrenheit 451. It's made clear in the beginning of Part 1 that the government dislikes people who think for themselves. Clarisse talks about how she and her family are looked down upon by society. Near the end of the book, when people were searching for Montag, after realizing that they couldn't find him, they killed a random man walking alone on the streets. Faber says they chose him because he was different; an individual. 
  • Individuality is Bad
  • Forced to Conform
  • Occurs After Horrific Event
  • In Fahrenheit 451, characters mention the "Dark Ages"", and it is concluded that this was what caused the government to ban books. It was said to be a time where everyone was fighting and disagreeing with each other.
  • Questions Society
  • In dystopian novels, there are usually protagonists that question their society. In Fahrenheit 451, there are multiple characters who do this, all who end up inspiring Montag. The first one to do this is Clarisse, who ends up a social outcast for her way of thinking. She triggers Montag to think this way as well, and question the government and laws he used to obey.
