Fahrenheit 451: Bradbury’s Worries
Fahrenheit 451: Bradbury’s Worries In the book Fahrenheit 451 the author Ray Bradbury is worried about many things and I believe his worries are overemphasized. In the book he discusses a time in the future where firemen were paid to set books on fire. There are numerous worries that he has that relate to this. One of his worries is individuals all people being unhappy since there are no books. In the book he not pleased and he says” I kept sitting there saying to myself, I’m not happy, I’m not pleased. I’m sure if there were no books some individuals would be unhappy but not everyone as in the book and only individuals who liked books who be unhappy. Mildred was dissatisfied but see didn’t like books. Another among his fears his people forgetting essential things since of having no books. Such as when Mildred forgets to tell Montag Clarisse passed away and when Montag asked his spouse when and where they fulfilled and Mildred responded” Funny how not to keep in mind where or when you satisfied your partner’r wife. People would most not forget important things because off books being censored.
He most worries censorship and all of his other fears are related to this one. He fears that the government will censor books and other things. In the Fahrenheit 451 books are censored due to the fact that various people do not like specific books. I believe that the government will constantly censor things however not since a few individuals do not like something. In conclusion I think Bradbury’s fear was overstated because in my opinion the majority of the important things that happened in the book would never ever occur in real life. The things that could occur probably would not have been as bad as in the book.
