Fahrenheit 451

This newsletter is about Fahrenheit 451, the most famous book written by Ray Bradbury. He wrote this book in 1953.

Shallow Marriage Coming To An End

"Let me alone. I didn't do anything!" quoted Mildred. Guy and Mildred Montag's marriage is coming to an end! They have been together for 10 years! The reason their marriage is coming to an end is because Mildred is not being faithful to him. All she does is take over her obsession on TV every day. She acts shallow around Guy and doesn't like to talk about things with him. One time, she tried to commit suicide by taking a lot of sleeping pills.

Captain Beatty Killed By A Fireman

"If you let it go on, it'd burn our lifetimes out." quoted Beatty. What happened to Captain Beatty?! After Montag burned his house down for having books, he ended up killing Beatty with a flamethrower because he wanted justice. He then realized that he wanted to die.

Quote by Ray Bradbury

"Stuff your eyes with wonder, he said, live as if you'd drop dead in ten seconds. See the world. It's more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories." Fahrenheit 451.

Clarisse McClellan

Montag's teenaged neighbor. She is unlike anyone Montag has met before. She is the lover of life and nature. She prefers to walk and observe the natural world and people. Her questioning, free spirit starts Montag thinking about his own life and his own place in society. Later on, she gets hit by a car. RIP Clarisse McClellan.

Professor Faber

A former English professor who describes himself as a coward because he did not act to try to change the direction in which society was headed. He invented a two-way radio to direct Montag through situations. He believes in the integrity of the individual. Montag listens to him and takes his side.
