What Is Ray Bradbury's Depiction Realistic

Satisfactory Essays
In the book Fahrenheit 451, the citizens stopped reading and showed disinterest in books. In response, the government began to censor everything and issued the tragedy of burning books. Firemen across the nation answer the call of discovered books in a home. Is this possible today and is Ray Bradbury's depiction realistic? Could this total apathy in books happen? The society of Fahrenheit 451 completely abandoned literature without thinking about the consequences or effects of doing so.

In our society today, books such as To Kill a Mockingbird, The Great Gatsby, and The Grapes of Wrath have been put on the Banned Book List all across America. To Kill a Mockingbird is banned because it is "profane and racist work that promotes 'white supremacy."
