The falling action in Fahrenheit 451 happens when Montag runs from the authorities and the Mechanical Hound, fleeing the city to head out into the surrounding countryside (Bradbury, 138). The novel’s resolution is composed of Montag’s meeting with Granger (Bradbury, 140), hisjoining with Granger and the other men (Bradbury, 143), and his decision to help them… He learns that all of the men have books in their heads, because the memory is the surest method of storing them (Bradbury, 144). Montag’s own contribution is The Book of Ecclesiastes (Bradbury, 144). When the city in which Montag lived is destroyed by bombs (Bradbury, 152), he and the other men begin the long walk back to rebuilt it and perhaps society as well. Fahrenheit 451 is an important piece of literature because it portrays the results of a censored society where books are both forbidden and destroyed. The novel also makes a very strong point about the dangers of consumerism, emphasizing how creativity and individualism can be reduced by ad and political campaigns. Perhaps the most important feature of the book is that readers understand the value of imagination and cultural heritage. These points would not beunderstood or accepted by readers if the novel failed to follow narrative structure, which is undeniably the most important aspect of any literary endeavor.
