Beatty's Position

Do you think that Beatty was in a similar position to Montag when he himself was of Montag's age? Do you think that he was tempted to act drastically such as the way Montag did, but he didn't have the resources to do so? Also, do you think that Beatty, himself, wanted to die because he felt for the same cause as Montag and many intellectuals did?

Yes and no..... For one I feel that all firemen go through the same phase that Montag goes through at least one point in there lifes its just not as drastic. At a point in there lifes, there going to question what they do, and if what there doing is right...most of them dont think twice about it, the few like Montag take action and turn there life around... I believe that Beatty never thought twice about the matter and just went about his buisness.

Beatty had a deeply-felt personal vendetta against literature. ("Books" being too broad a term. No one was out burning state-approved history texts, for instance. It was independent thought they targeted.) If his reasons aren't in the book version, they are dealt with to some extent in the play, and, no doubt, the forthcoming movie.
