In Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, Montag begins to challenge conformity and question his society. Bradbury begins the story by showing Montag’s energy towards his jobs of burning down houses that contain books: “Later, going to sleep, he would feel the fiery smile still gripped by his face muscles, in the dark. It never went away, that smile” (Bradbury 2). His declarations of detail strongly grab the attention of the readers, by implicitly writing about how Montag follows the society’s conformity. Montag then later shows how he is questioning his society, after meeting a young girl named Clarisse. Clarisse does not follow the society’s conformity and she passes the influence to Montag, making him challenge conformity and question his society. As they further grow a friend ship, Clarisse asks Montag a question about how many children he and his wife would like to have. He then replied with “Well I don’t really know” (Bradbury 26). After that he begins to realize how much of a stinger his wife is to him, and how anti-social his whole society is. Just as Montag begins to somewhat question his society, he finds many more flaws in his world.
