Fahrenheit 451 Controversy

ControversyAnalysis

Fahrenheit 451 has several powerful themes that give both an in depth examination of the dystopian society in the novel, and manage to avoid explicitly describing virtually any major aspects of the world in which this society has emerged. Some more prevelent themes include censorship, conformity vs. individuality, and distraction vs. happiness.

Themes

Controversial themes

The main themes present in the book that some have felt warranted challenging and banning (ironic given the book's contents) are the at times strong language, negative descriptions of such societal monoliths as mass media, and unmoderated examples of houses and books such as the bible being burned.

Challenges Issued

In October of 2006, Alton Verm, of Conroe, objected to the language and content in the book. His 15-year-old daughter Diana, a sophomore, came to him with reservations about reading the book because of its language.

In 2007, a Texas man tried to ban the novel from his daughter’s high school. He claimed it was a “filthy book” that “insulted our firemen.”
