Fahrenheit 451

Fahrenheit 451

by Ray Bradbury

Foil

Character Role Analysis

Beatty, Faber, and Granger's monologues

We’re talking about those three big speeches in Fahrenheit 451, appropriately spaced in the three distinct parts. They go something like this: 1) Books are bad. 2) Books aren’t the answer – they have to reflect life. 3) Rebellion is personal and can’t be forced. Most people aren’t ready for what books have to offer. These speeches show Guy’s progression and trace the lessons he learns as the text goes on.
