Freshmen Lit & Composition Summer 2014 Dialectic Journal Assignment FAHRENHEIT 451 TEXT CHAPTER & PAGE RESPONSE (Question, Predict, Connect, Clarify, Reflect, Evaluate) "With the brass nozzle in his fists, with this great python spitting it 's venomous kerosene upon the world, the blood pounded his head, and his hands were the hands of some amazing conductor playing all the symphonies of blazing and burning to bring down the tatters and charcoal ruins of history."
