“Fahrenheit 451”

"There must be something in books, things we can't imagine, to make a woman stay in a burning house; there must be something there. You don't stay for nothing."
Fahrenheit 451 - Ray Bradbury
Ray Bradbury

Fahrenheit 451 is a dystopian novel written by Ray Bradbury in 1953. The action takes place in a not so distant future where the totalitarian government formally prohibits reading books. There may appear to be no link between the First and Second World Wars, but the author relays in his work the fears that he experienced after 1945 and in the context of the cold war. Deeply marked by the book burnings committed by the Nazis when he was a teenager, Bradbury writes a tribute to literature as the ultimate weapon against disinformation and totalitarianism.
