This paper looks at Ray Bradbury's book "Fahrenheit 451," which shows a dystopian society where people's movements, beliefs and lifestyles are dictated by the government. In particular it discusses how, in the book, Bradbury has managed created the opposite of a Utopia.

From the Paper:

"Ray Bradbury shows Montag, as the book goes along, as a man developing a conflict with society, with his family (the airhead wife!) and with himself. The conflicts arrive when he realized that he actually lives in a dull, dreary and dismal world where freedom is castrated and society or the people in the society are merely zombies existing to listen to Seashell Radios or watch the idiot box day in and day out. From a believer and a company man, Montag metamorphose into a rebel and a cynic - but what brought about the change? Meeting and befriending a 17-year old named Clarisse started it all. He saw in Clarisse the joie de vivre missing from most people he knew. As a humanistic, ideological and nature-loving young lady, whose beauty evolves from her gentle innocence and curious nature she shows Montag that there is more meaning to life than being dictated by society or being stuck with the tentacles of modern technology."
