This text explores the plot overview in this novel using the Freytag pyramid elements of exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, and resolution.

Exposition

As mentioned earlier, the novel is set in a dystopian world where books are forbidden. The firemen are tasked with burning books rather than their usual role of putting out fires. The protagonist in the story is named Montag and at first, he is a proud fireman who does not see anything wrong with the society until he meets and befriends a teenager by the name of Clarisse McClellan. Unlike Montag, she is aware of the circumstances under which they live in and she becomes the main catalyst through which Montag reviews his career and life as a whole. In one instance, she asks him if he is happy with the life he lives and at this point, Montag evaluates himself and discovers that he is unhappy.

Conflict

While undergoing his normal duties as a fireman, Montag witnesses an old lady who chooses to commit suicide and burn together with her books rather than let the firemen take away the books. Driven by curiosity, he takes a book from her house and due to the fact that it is against the law to have books, he hides it under his pillow. This spans his journey of redemption from the ideologies of his society as the incident involving the woman who commits suicide disturbs him greatly.
