NEA Big Read

The novel focuses on Guy Montag, a fireman. In the first section, we discover that Montag is a professional book burner, expected to start fires instead of putting them out. For years he has done his job obediently and well. Then one day, he is called upon to burn the books of a Mrs. As Montag begins to read deeply for the first time in his life, Fahrenheit 451's second section traces his growing dissatisfaction with the society he is paid to defend. Montag's boss at the firehouse, Beatty, senses his disenchantment and interrogates him until their confrontation is interrupted by a fire call. Fahrenheit 451's final section finds Montag seizing his own fate for the first time. The book's three holocausts expand concentrically.

The Use of Literary Quotations and Allusions in Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

Introductory Remarks Ray Bradbury's novel Fahrenheit 451 was first recommended for foreign language teaching purposes more than twenty years ago (cf. Noçon, 1977, second edition 1981). All three publications contain linguistic annotations, which are more or less satisfactory, Kastner's being better than Vater's and the latter being better than Köhn's. 2. Motto: Juan Ramón Jiménez : Spanish poet (1881-1958); the motto sets the tone for unorthodox, non-conformist or even rebellious behaviour in the course of the novel. p. 5/p. 8: Guy Montag (page references are to the Cornelsen edition by Dieter Vater; cf. bibliography below): the protagonist's Christian name may refer to Guy Fawkes and his famous gun powder plot in order to kill King James I in 1605 ("Remember, remember the fifth of November"), whereas his family name seems to suggest a new beginning.
