Allusion: Juan Ramón Jiménez


Category: Literary


Quote: “If they give you ruled paper, write the other way.” pg 1


Context: Juan Ramón Jiménez is a spanish poet, a prophetic writer. He lived in San Juan, Puerto Rico, but he was born in Moguer, Andalucia. In 1911 and 1912, he wrote poems about females in many locations, and his fantasies. Some of his other main points for his poems are music and color, which he would usually compare to love and lust. Juan and his wife, Zenobia Camprubi, also a spanish poet. The two of them together wrote the poem, Platero y yo, which translated means Donkey and I.In 1956, he won the Nobel Peace Prize.

__"I Am Not I" by Juan Ramón Jiménez__



Insight: Yes, in my opinion it does offer insight into the book. It says, “If they give you ruled paper, write the other way.” Which to me offers much insight in Fahrenheit 451, for example would be that Montag doesn’t like following what the society does. He goes with his own way of thought and reads books anyway. Readers of Fahrenheit 451 should understand that this is foreshadowing, into the book to show that you should be different, and not follow what other people are doing, and go your own way in life.

Allusion: Millay, Edna St. Vincent


Category: Literary


Quote: “Monday burn Millay, Wednesday Whiteman, Friday Faulkner, burn ‘em to ashes, then burn the ashes.” pg 8


Context: Edna St. Vincent Millay, an American lyrical poet and playwright. She was born in Rockland, Maine, in 1892, she died in Austerlitz, New York in 1950. When she was fifteen she had many relationships with other woman at school. Her poetic career started when she put her poem Renascence in The Lyric Year, a poetry contest. Where she got fourth place, even though it was highly considered for the best poem submission. This created a big scandal and got Millay a lot of publicity. After The Lyric Year, controversy Caroline B. Dow, heard Millay reciting her poem and she was very impressed. She then proceeded to offer to pay for Millay’s education at Vassar College. Edna Millay won the Pulitzer Prize for her poem “The Ballad of the Harp-Weaver,” she was the third woman to win this award. In 1943, Edna was the sixth person, and second woman to be awarded the Nobel Frost Award for her lifetime contribution to American poetry.

Links:
__"Renascence" by Edna Millay__


Insight: Edna St. Vincent Millay is important to Fahrenheit 451 because she was a lyrical poet, playwright, and feminist, also known for her activism. Her many love affairs-she reveals she was openly bisexual. She wasn't afraid to go against the flow. She wasn’t afraid to be herself. Which foreshadows fahrenheit 451 because Montag goes against the flow(society) when he wants to read and understand books.

Allusion: Whitman, Walt
Category: Literary
Quote: “Monday burn Millay, Wednesday Whiteman, Friday Faulkner, burn ‘em to ashes, then burn the ashes.” pg 8
Context: Walt Whitman was an American poet, journalist, and essayist. He started his early career working for another printer, Erastus Worthington, in Brooklyn. After his family moved back to West Hills, Walt stayed and took a job at the shop of Alden Spooner, which was the editor of leading whig weekly newspaper, the Long Island Star. When he was working there he became a frequent patron to the local library where he published some of his early poetry in the New York Mirror. At age 16, he moved to New York City to be a compositor, he later tried to find different work, but it was difficult due to a severe fire incident. In 1856, he rejoined his family, now living in Hempstead, Long Island, he became a teacher. After his many teaching attempts Walt went back to New York and founded his own newspaper, The Long Islander.

Insight: In many of Walt Whitman’s poems/journals/essays, he re-evaluates himself. Which gives insight to Fahrenheit 451 because Montag contradicts himself all the time. He thinks about the conversation he has with Clarisse McClennan a lot. So he questions himself on what he is doing a lot. Most of his work is very controversial which means that most of his writings and essays have two sides to every story. This is foreshadowing into Fahrenheit 451 because Montag has two sides to him, his obeying of the authority to follow rules, and the other side is him disobeying the rules and keeping books at his house and reading them.

Allusion: Faulkner, William


Category:Literary


Quote: “It’s fine work. Monday burn Millay, Wednesday Whitman, Friday Faulkner, burn ‘em to ashes, then burn the ashes. That’s our official sign.” - page 8


Context: William Faulkner was an American writer, and won a Nobel Prize from Oxford, Mississippi. Faulkner wrote many things such as novels, short stories, a play, poetry, essays, and screenplays. Most people know him for his novels and short stories. A lot of people didn’t know about William Faulkner until he received a Nobel Prize in Literature in 1949. He became the only Mississippi-born Nobel Prize winner.

Insight: Ray Bradbury included William Faulkner in Fahrenheit 451 most likely because of his many novels and short stories. Based on the quote used, Bradbury tells us that Faulkner’s literature was so important that the firemen in Fahrenheit 451 have a certain day they burn his books. Like I mentioned in my context, he won a Nobel Prize! Readers should understand when reading this quote in Fahrenheit 451 that Ray Bradbury is giving another writer recognition, which is pretty cool. Since this story is set in the future, could Faulkner’s literature be so good that is remains in history for that long?

Allusion: Phoenix
Category: Mythological
Quote: “There was a silly damn bird called a phoenix back before Christ, every few hundred years he built a pyre and burnt himself up. He must have been first cousin to Man. But every time he burnt himself up he sprang out of the ashes, he got himself born all over again. And it looks like we’re doing the same thing, over and over, but we’ve got one damn thing the phoenix never had. We know the damn silly thing we just did. We know all the damn silly things we’ve done for a thousand years and as long as we know that and always have it around where we can see it, someday we’ll stop making the goddamn funeral pyres and jumping in the middle of them. We pick up a few more people that remember every generation.” -page 163
Context: A phoenix is a bird that regenerates itself, it is reborn. According to Greek Mythology it catches fire, then from its ashes becomes a new living phoenix. This bird could live for over 1,400 years before rebirth. There is not a definite answer to what color a phoenix is. Most believe it is very colorful, and stands out from other birds. It is also unclear what size a phoenix is. It’s size ranges from about the size of an eagle to about the size of an ostrich.

Insight: This allusion, a phoenix, is important to Fahrenheit 451 because Granger compares it to society. He uses a great comparison to specifically Montag. Montag’s character in this story started off very unhappy with his job as a firemen. I feel Clarisse was the “fire” he needed to become a new man to fight for what he believes. After meeting Clarisse, Montag becomes a new man, just like a reborn phoenix. He strongly believes that books have meaning so he does everything he can to find out what that is, even though there are very dangerous risks. Granger had hoped more people, like Montag, would remember lines from books so that one day after many generations, they could maybe bring books back.

Allusion: Benjamin Franklin
Category: Historical
Quote: “Established, 1790, to burn English-influenced books in the Colonies. First Fireman: Benjamin Franklin.” -page 34
Context: Benjamin Franklin was born in 1706, and was one the Founding Fathers of the United States of America. He was an author, printer, political theorist, politician, freemason postmaster, scientist, inventor, civic activist, statesman, and a diplomat. He is mostly famous for inventing bifocals and the lightning rod. Benjamin Franklin was a very successful newspaper editor and printer in Philadelphia Pennsylvania. He became wealthy for some of his published works. Almost anyone and everyone knew who he was, and know who he is today.

__Link to Photo of Benjamin Franklin__
Insight: Ray Bradbury included this line in Fahrenheit 451 because information has been poorly carried on throughout generations. It is true that Benjamin Franklin if the Founding Father of firefighting. Although, he did not start fires to burn books. He stopped fires. Bradbury is showing the readers how the characters in Fahrenheit 451 think that firefighters have always started fires, instead of putting them out. How common information, such as knowing that Benjamin Franklin founded firefighters and put out fires, gets lost over time.

Category: Historical
Quote: "Play the man, Master Ridley; we shall this day light such a candle, by God's grace, in England, as I trust shall never be put out." -pg. 36.
Context: Master Ridley was a priest and lived in England around 1529. Then he became a senior proctor of Cambridge University. Ridley became the Bishop of Rochester. His accomplishes include helping to make the Book of Common Prayer. He was called the “Bishop of London and Westminster.” He was burnt alive at Oxford, for heresy. This allusion shows how willing the lady and Master Ridley were to die for something they believed in.
Citation: Heinze, Rudolph W. "Nicholas Ridley." Wikipedia. Wikimedia Foundation, 12 Dec. 2015. Web. 08 Jan. 2016.
Links:__Information on Master Ridley__
__Picture of Master Ridley__
Insight: This is important to the book because the lady that died for her books was a very big part in the book. She showed for what she believed in, and so did Master Ridley for his religion. It shows an insight to the book, because it was a big comparison to Master Ridley and the lady. Bradbury used it to show how willing the lady was to die for her books.

Allusion: Tower of Babel
Category: Biblical
Quote: “You know the law,” said Beatty. “Where’s your common sense? None of those books agree with each other. You’ve been locked up here for years with a regular damned Tower of Babel. Snap out of it! The people in those books never lived. Come on now!” -pg.38
Context: The Tower of Babel is used to explain the origin of different languages. No one understood one another, because of their language. God came to look over the city. The allusion is that the community in F451, no one wants to share ideas, or original thought. People in F451 aren’t really having a conversation. Just like the people in the Tower of Babel aren’t having real conversation either because they can’t understand each other.
Citation: Metzger, Bruce Manning. "Tower of Babel." Wikipedia. Wikimedia Foundation, n.d. Web. 10 Jan. 2016.
Links: __Link to Tower of Babel Picture__
Insight: This is important to Fahrenheit 451 because the people and the books didn’t agree with each other because they couldn’t understand each other. Yes this allusion does show insight to the book because it is a great comparison with these people. Bradbury used this allusion to show that the people in this book, never really talk to each other.

Category: Historical
Quote: “We burnt copies of Dante and Swift and Marcus Aurelius.” -pg.50
Context:Dante Alighieri is a very famous poet, in the Middle Ages. He was a very deep thinker and his books were very well thought out. One of his well known writings is “Divina Commedia” (Divine Comedy) This allusion occurs when Montag comes home from the fire that killed the old lady with her books, and Montag said that quote to her and she didn’t even care. No one in F451 doesn’t want to learn or do anything.
Citation: Allitt, John Stewert. "Dante Alighieri." Wikipedia. Wikimedia Foundation, n.d. Web. 08 Jan. 2016.
Links: __Picture of Dante Aligheri__
__Information on Dante, Aligheri__
Insight:. This is important to the book because it makes you realize that people don’t use their brains a lot. Yes it does show insight to the book because it shows that no one really has thoughts in F451. Ray Bradbury uses this allusion because Dante had several meaning in his books, and the firemen would want these books to be burned as soon as possible.

Allusion: Swift, Jonathan
Category: Historical
Quote: “We burnt copies of Dante and Swift and Marcus Aurelius. Wasn’t he a European? ‘Something like that. Wasn’t he a radical? I never read him. He was a radical.” -page 50
Context: Jonathan Swift was an Anglo-Irish. His talents included being a satirist, essayist, political pamphleteer, poet and cleric. He became the Dean of St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Dublin. Jonathan Swift is most famous for these works; Gulliver’s Travels, A Modest Proposal, A Tale of a Tub, and Drapier’s Letters. In the Encyclopedia Britannica it says he is the “foremost prose satirist in the English language.”

Links: __Biography of Jonathan Swift__
__Link to Photo of Jonathan Swift__
Insight: This allusion of Jonathan Swift is important because of his many talents and successes. I think Bradbury uses this line in Fahrenheit 451 to show that even though the characters don’t know much about him they know a little. Just that little piece of information that he’s a radical has carried on through generations. I also think Bradbury uses this to show how much information can get lost without having books. The quote says that they burn Swift’s works, which means they burn one of Swift’s famous works, Gulliver's Travels. That mark in history will be lost!

Insight: In Fahrenheit 451, all the hobos represent an author and what the authors have written. Marcus Aurelius is included in those authors because even though his ideas represented service and authority. He still believed you should follow your mind and thoughts for encouragement. Many of his famous quotes go along with the books meaning. Such as “ Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not a truth.”

Allusion: Civil War
Category: Historical
Quote from Fahrenheit 451:“When did it all start, you ask, this job of ours, how did it come about, where, when? Well, I’d say it really got started around about a thing called the Civil War. Even though our rule book claims it was founded earlier. The fact is we didn’t get along well until photography came into its own. Then --- motion pictures in the early twentieth century. Radio. Television. Things began to have mass.” page 54
Original Source or Context: The Civil War was fought because the South thought that Abraham Lincoln was taking away the south's rights (including slavery). It was fought from 1861 to 1865. This four year war decided the future of our country. The Confederates (South) and the Union (North) fought a 4 year war taking 625000 lives in the process. The Union won this war taking control of the South again. Citation:MCPHERSON, JAMES. "A Brief Overview of the American Civil War."Council on Foreign Relations. Council on Foreign Relations, 2014.

Effect/Insight: The reason that they used the civil war is the internal conflict of the Montag is fighting himself over what is right and wrong. If it is ok to burn books or should people be able to read books. This is similar to the Civil War because it was a country fighting over what is right and wrong. The allusion is Montag is the country and the north and south is burn the books or let people read them.


Allusion: Constitution
Category: Historical
Quote from Fahrenheit 451:“Not everyone born free and equal, as the Constitution says, but made equal. Each man made in the image of another. Then everyone is happy” - Captain Beatty page 58
Original Source or Context: The constitution was a signed document that had the people's law. This document was the building block for our government. This was signedSeptember 17th, 1778, by the Constitutional Convention (founding men of our country).

Effect/Insight: The reason they used this allusion was to show how the laws and rules have depleted. and that the only things that people actually care about is being the same. That everyone has their own laws and decides what is important in life. In Fahrenheit 451 everyone wins and that everyone is equal that relates to the constitution because t say that every one was made equal. The people of the future took it to a whole new level.


Allusion: Little Black Sambo
Category: Literary
Quote: “Coloured people don't like Little Black Sambo. Burn it. White people don't feel good about Uncle Tom's Cabin. Burn it. Someone's written a book on tobacco and cancer of the lungs? The cigarette people are weeping? Burn the book.”(pg 59)
Context:Little Black Sambo was a book written in 1899 by Helen Bannerman. The book was very controversial in some countries because the word Sambo was deemed a racist slur. Due to this the book along with its illustrations has been revised many times since its creation. In the book a South Indian boy has new colorful clothes. When he goes outside four tigers come and take his clothes. They run around a tree until they turn to butter then Little Black Sambo makes pancakes.

Insight:This quote is used to show that in the universe that Fahrenheit 451 takes place in that controversial books should be burned. If the book is offensive to people it should just be destroyed. This is an important example of controversial books being destroyed because when this book was written in real life it was banned in many foreign countries. Beatty uses this example to show Montag that it's better to just destroy bad books.


Allusion: Uncle Tom's Cabin
Category:Literary
Quote: “Coloured people don't like Little Black Sambo. Burn it. White people don't feel good about Uncle Tom's Cabin. Burn it. Someone's written a book on tobacco and cancer of the lungs? The cigarette people are weeping? Burn the book.”(pg 59)
Original Source or Context:Uncle Tom’s Cabin was an anti-slavery novel written in 1850 by Harriet Beecher Stowe. This book showed the evils of slavery that many people in that time didn't know were going on. This book angered some people and inspired many. Some even went as far as to say “it laid the groundworks for the Civil War.”

Effect/Insight:This book inspired very many people and angered very many people. Because of this Beatty uses this example to show that if a book angers or offends people it should be destroyed. The problem with this is that if this book had been destroyed in real life the Civil War may of never happened. Beatty tries to explain to Montag that all books are evil. In the world of Fahrenheit 451 this book offends people so they destroy it.
