You want to protect your own life and when your are threatened you do whatever it takes to be safe again. In the novel Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, that is the case with this novel about this story. Guy Montag must fight through constant battles to stay sane. And Many things reveal this. Things like figurative language and irony are just two of those. But they are not the smallest. I believe that they are essential to the novel and the plot as well as showing the true meaning of the story.
In one instance after Guy Montag has already burned his house down and has set his boss on fire as well, the narrator says And then he was a shrieking blaze. (Ray Bradbury) This is referring to Beatty whom is now on fire. Guy Montag did this for one reason, to protect himself. You see if a guy tries to arrest you and you can’t run and you have too much pride to surrender peacefully then you try something new. And that is what Montag does. Except he decides to commit an act of murder by flaming his own boss and killing the firemen behind him. If his own life had not been jeopardized and Faber’s life hadn’t compromised in this event it more than likely would never had happened. At another point after doing this and being attacked by the Hound he is trying to run. But he is made aware that his leg isn’t agreeing with that plan. In fact Montag says Move you fool, move! (Ray Bradbury) He is personifying his leg by calling it a fool and telling it to move. You see, the procaine going through his body is making his leg like a immovable person and he needs to move fast.
