The future in Fahrenheit 451 is very interesting sciene-fiction illusion, but not realistic. There are too many unrealistic ideas. It may be that the people thought differently about the development of society and the industrial revolution a few years ago.
But I can`t imagine that the people can live without emotions, love, feelings.
And that the government rules all the TV-programs and stops the freedom of speech and controls all people in every part of their lives is a very dire idea. I can't imagine that the people accept this crazy development for a long time.

And in the future books will not be as important as they are an alternative to other media, not more. (Hahn)

As the novel begins to unfold, Bradbury displays an act of rebellion starting to rise, shown throughout some of the characters feelings. Clarisse, a young and free spirited teenager is an example of the new kind of spontaneous personality not ordinary but is becoming more popular. When Clarisse is first introduced in the novel she is intrigued by Montag. As the author points out, “She seemed hypnotized by the salamander on his arm and the phoenix disc on his chest” (Bradbury 6), we can see that this affected Clarisse deeply. Both of those symbols represe... Read Full Essay Click the button above to view the complete essay, speech, term paper, or research paper

For many viewers, the premiere of the silent film marked the first time they saw a vampire on the screen. The most memorable images, like Count Orlok's shadow creeping across a wall, or his fatal reaction to sunlight, are now tropes of the genre the film helped create. But all of Nosferatu 's innovation didn't change the fact that it blatantly ripped off Bram Stoker's Dracula —a detail that nearly buried the work before it had a chance to earn its reputation as a cinematic masterpiece.
