Synopsis:

This guide to Bradbury's "Fahrenheit 451" aims to help students understand the overall structure of the novel, actions and motivations of the characters, and the social and cultural perspectives of the author. This tale concerns censorship and anti-intellectualism.

Synopsis:

The original CliffsNotes study guides offer a look into key elements and ideas within classic works of literature. The latest generation of titles in this series also features glossaries and visual elements that complement the familiar format.

CliffsNotes on Fahrenheit 451 explores a twenty-fourth century world in which books are considered evil because they inspire people to think and to question.

Following the story of a 30-year-old fireman who's spent the last decade destroying books for a living, this study guide features a graphical map to show how the novel's characters relate to one another. In addition, CliffsNotes provides character analyses that take you deeper into the minds and mechanical workings of Ray Bradbury's famous social criticism Other features that help you figure out this important work include

  • Personal background on the author
  • Synopsis of the book and a look at major themes
  • Summaries and commentaries on each part of the book
  • Review section that features multiple-choice questions, quoted passages, and suggested essay topics and practice projects
  • Resource Center with books, articles, and Web sites that can help round out your knowledge
