Bringing about Change

“Farenheit 451” brings about the idea that books can bring radical change to the world. Bradburry used an allusion of the book from the past titled “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” to prove that. This book was written about the conditions of the slaves in the south during the 1850s. During those times, it was said that “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” opened the public’s eyes on the slavery issue and motivated them to do something about it. Thus, began the civil war that led to the abolishment of slavery. Ray Bradburry used this allusion to lead the readers to discover the change that can come from reading books.
