"I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious" - Albert Einstein

Winter break reading book(draft)

Actually, I didn’t book a whole book during the break, but, I read Ray Bradbury’s 1953 novel Fahrenheit 451 is set in a society that burns books in order to control dangerous ideas and unhappy concepts. The novel tells the story of Guy Montag, a fireman who questions the book-burning policy and undergoes extraordinary suffering.

 

some notes I’ve took before

Daniel, Son Hyunsu

 

Thesis-If you didn’t know the truth with certainty, would you think its a lie?  Society has to accept the facts that are apparent.  How much limitation to absolute knowledge is appropriate?  The exact amount is unknown but one thing is clear; In Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, governmental censorship creates a society of people who don’t know the truth and who also don’t know how to find it.  Through a period of realization, Guy Montag discovers that censorship only leads to the downfall of a group, and has the bravery to expose the lies that people have been fed.

 

Points I agree

-the setting(people can’t read book and the government is controlling people)

-the machines and techniques in the book (this book has written in 1950s, but a lot of thing in that story is now possible )

Points I disagree

-people are too obedient to the government

book

Book-The absolutely true diary of a part-time Indian

author-Sherman Alexie

Page-to 116

 

I think it shows the sight of society at that time and how the protagonist overcomes difficulties. The book expresses the white people’s opinions of black people at the time, and the difficulty the protagonist met for adjusting to a white school, and this seems to be a really important part. We must not forget that there are still traces of racism in society and there are people who are struggling because of that.
