Change is a big factor of life, without changes we are like robots. Sometimes we change to adapt, change for a cause, change to be a better person, change for a better living, and some time change for fun. Similarly in the novel Fahrenheit 451 Ray Bradbury changes his main character Guy Montag throughout the novel. He uses other characters to bring changes into Montag’s life. Montag is a fire man, not a fireman who puts fire out rather who works under Captain Beatty to burn books, and houses.
In the beginning of the movie he just follows order and burns books but as the novel goes he changes himself to be a better person.
Firstly, Clarisse seventeen years old girl, Montag is introduced to in the novel bring several changes in his life. She teaches him how to love and express his thoughts. In the beginning he doesn’t think much to care about anything, but Clarisse teaches him love nature.
He never even thinks let alone expressing his thoughts, But Clarisse changes him to look differently and to express them to change him to be a better person. “It’s just I love to watch people too much… Sometimes I ride the subway all day and look at them and listen to them.”
Second is Mildred, Montag’s wife who just watches T.V shows with her friend all the time. She was like the rest of the society, who was bored with life and tried to commit suicide. She sort of holds Montag back from changing, reading books. As his wife she had more effect on him than anyone else in the beginning.
