The Strength of Beatty The book, Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, demonstrates how certain people's opinions can influence an issue -- in this case, the burning of books. Captain Beatty had the greatest influence on public opinion regarding this issue. Beatty illustrates the ability to confuse and to make a person insane, he can control a community of people, and he can frighten people.

Analyzing The Struggle For Power In Four Novels
Analyzing The Struggle For Power In Four Novels If you delve into the content of almost any novel, there is almost always some kind of struggle for power. It could be for rightful integration into society; power over an island; power over a country; or in some cases, even power over the minds of others. These not at all uncommon struggles for power are what keep us interested in the plot of a book. The ongoing battle between a character and his cause makes it impossible to put down a good book.

And the penalty for being caught with books is that the books must be burned and in some cases the penalty may lead to death. In this tale of censorship and self discovery, Bradbury leads the reader through a short period

“We have only one story-- the neverending contest in ourselves of good and evil.” This eternal struggle between the forces of human nature can cause much confusion because the lines that distinguish between what is good or evil are rarely clearly drawn. Depending on the circumstances of the event or the state of mind of the person, what is good can appear evil and what is evil can appear good. As history and works of literature have shown us, only societies perception of what is morally right p
