poem for f451 poem for f451

This found poem in Fahrenheit 451 written by Ray Bradbury represents the scene when Montag crosses the river and throws his darkness, which makes Montag afraid.  However, after meeting Granger and the other forbidden people he starts to have hope, shown by the words in the poem trust, glow, starlight, light and luminous. The poem has many words with a positive connotation, which represents Montag’s feelings and the fact he still has hope. “… floating in a sudden peacefulness, away from the city and the lights and the chase, away from everything.” (Bradbury 142). This represents the idea that Montag is feeling safe, peaceful and mostly hopeful.

Theme of Ungifted

Theme of Ungifted is just because you think you are not intelligent others will think in other way and just because you think you are not enough for your friend your friends will need you. When Donovan need to go back to his place because he is not in the right place, his friends who are really gifted and smart protest with their teacher and want Donovan back. “’Donovan might not be gifted in the same way as the rest of us, but he’s the heart and soul of our team!”’ (Korman 206). This quote shows that how Donovan thinks himself is different than what others think of him. Donovan thinks he doesn’t belong in the Gifted School however, his friends think Donovan is gifted in different way. In the book Donovan is known as the student who is a troublemaker but at the end he is a hope of every friends and he is trying his best to improve himself.  My connection to the theme is when I am playing badminton I am not good enough comparing to my partner and I always think in this way but when I actually play the match with my partner I do okay job with it and I think this will connect to the theme because I think I don’t belong with my partner but others or the outcome is not bad at all. After figuring out that I am not distracting my partner I promised myself to work hard to get better.

“’He’s one of us.”’ (Korman 206). This quote represents how his gifted friends think Donovan is important to them and one of them. Even though Donovan thinks he is not enough or ungifted just like his friends however, his friends, who are really gifted need him and respect him as their family and true friends. I have a similar situation. I am living in china with my aunt and cousin and my brother but I usually fight with him with small problem and I want him to go back to Korea. One day my brother fights with my aunt, a big fight, and starting from that fight the relationship between aunt and my brother is terrible. Finally my brother and my aunt think that it can’t go forever like this so my brother and aunt decide that my brother going back to Korea. I do not really care about the problem until the last day with my brother. I cried hard and I suppose that even though my brother and I am not very friendly but we love each other. This connect with the theme because brother and I are not friendly we care each other in different way.
