This was not fiction. This story echoes Mildred's "Seashell ear-thimbles" i. In a interview, Bradbury maintained that people misinterpret his book and that Fahrenheit is really a statement on how mass media like television marginalizes the reading of literature. There is more than one way to burn a book. And the world is full of people running about with lit matches.
Students, reading the novel, which, after all, deals with censorship and book-burning in the future, wrote to tell me of this exquisite irony. Judy-Lynn del Rey , one of the new Ballantine editors, is having the entire book reset and republished this summer with all the damns and hells back in place. Book-burning censorship, Bradbury would argue, was a side-effect of these two primary factors; this is consistent with Captain Beatty's speech to Montag about the history of the firemen.
According to Bradbury, it is the people, not the state, who are the culprit in Fahrenheit A variety of other themes in the novel besides censorship have been suggested. Two major themes are resistance to conformity and control of individuals via technology and mass media. Bradbury explores how the government is able to use mass media to influence society and suppress individualism through book burning. The characters Beatty and Faber point out that the American population is to blame.
Due to their constant desire for a simplistic, positive image, books must be suppressed. Beatty blames the minority groups, who would take offense to published works that displayed them in an unfavorable light. Faber went further to state that the American population simply stopped reading on their own.
He notes that the book burnings themselves became a form of entertainment for the general public. Bradbury described himself as "a preventor of futures, not a predictor of them. Rather, he states that education must be at the kindergarten and first-grade level. If students are unable to read then, they will be unable to read Fahrenheit In terms of technology, Sam Weller notes that Bradbury "predicted everything from flat-panel televisions to earbud headphones and twenty-four-hour banking machines.

At least part of it was performed at the Colony Theatre in Los Angeles in , but it was not in print until and the official world premiere was only in November by the Fort Wayne, Indiana Civic Theatre. The stage adaptation diverges considerably from the book and seems influenced by Truffaut's movie.
For example, fire chief Beatty's character is fleshed out and is the wordiest role in the play. As in the movie, Clarisse does not simply disappear but in the finale meets up with Montag as a book character she as Robert Louis Stevenson , he as Edgar Allan Poe. In , the novel was adapted into a computer text adventure game of the same name by the software company Trillium. In June , a graphic novel edition of the book was published.
