Flames | Fahrenheit 451 and Censorship

via Daily Prompt: Flames

While Ray Bradbury, the author of Fahrenheit 451 has stated that the book is not about censorship, I think that themes of censorship are very evident and clear in the book. People are afraid of offending others and so they completely ban books that might cause a person to cry.

People get offended by art. That’s how it is. Art is the artist’s way of expression. No matter what you write, it’s likely that someone will be offended. It doesn’t matter what you do.

Fahrenheit 451 is a book in which books are burned, not only censoring books but also restricting the people’s right to read.

If you haven’t read this book, I highly recommend it!
