Fahrenheit 451vIntroductionReading Ray Bradbury’sFahrenheit 451in the twenty-first centuryis as exciting as when it was first published in 1953. Probably Bradbury’smost famous and influential novel, this work of science fiction exploresa not-too-distant future when citizens are forced to conform and booksare banned and burned. Written during the Cold War and the era of Mc-Carthyism, this novel also addresses the destructive capacity of totalitariangovernment. The early 1950s was also the time period when America’s loveaffair with television and mass communication began. Bradbury indictsconsumerism and dependency on technology by illustrating how creativ-ity and individuality are destroyed by rampant advertising and intrusivegovernment control.Another intriguing aspect of this novel is Bradbury’s distinctive style,which combines a suspenseful story line with poetic devices such as allu-sions, figurative language, and sensory imagery. Bradbury’s preoccupationwith humanism is also illustrated by the sentimental value of friendshipand loyalty over visionary technology. The social commentary that is bothsatirical and optimistic is never simplistic or predictable. Most of all, Brad-bury celebrates the spirit of human imagination.
