Title: The Sieve and the Sand


1
The Sieve and the Sand
  • Analyzing the Novel

2
Foreshadowing
  • Authors use foreshadowing to hint at future
    events in a novel. The external conflict of man
    vs. machine heightens between Montag and the
    Mechanical Hound in Part Two, and the eventual
    violent meeting and hunt is foreshadowed. As you
    complete this activity, make predictions about
    the Hounds programming and programmer and the
    resolution of the final clash.

3
Directions Quote three passges that foreshadow
the eventual struggle between Montag and the
Mechanical Hound.
  • Outside the front door, in the rain, a faint
    scratching. Montag froze. He saw Mildred thrust
    herself back to the wall and gasp.
  • 2.
  • 3.
  • 4.

4
Answer the following questions.
  1. Who do you think programs the Hound and sends him
    out to investigate Montag? Why?
  2. What effect does the Hound have on the plot of
    the novel?

5
Rhetorical Questions
  • Shortly after Montag endures Beattys lecture in
    Part One, Montag voices his opinion on the
    importance of reading. When Mildred has enough of
    Montags foolish and antisocial behavior, she
    cries, Why should I read? What for? Montags
    response is emotional, highly-charged, and
    critical. His speech is as much for himself as it
    is for Millie.

6
  • A second look at his speech reveals how Montag
    is changing. In his response to Millie, Montag
    asks many questions, one after the other, without
    pausing or giving Millie an opportunity to
    answer. These rhetorical questions are asked not
    to obtain answers, but to make statements.

7
  • This activity gives you a chance to look at
    Montags persuasive language and his support of
    reading. You also see his opposition to the
    current state of the world (status quo.)

8
Directions Record three rhetorical questions
asked by Montag. Explain the statement Montag
makes by posing each question.
9
Theme
  • As Montag boards the subway, he describes a
    numbness that has crept over him. He wishes to
    return to his old self. As the scene progresses,
    he is disturbed by a radio jingle. Consider the
    reactions Montag and the other passengers have to
    the jingle. What central message (theme) is
    communicated throught the contrast of Montag to
    the other passengers?

10
  1. What is Montags numbness?
  2. How does the analogy of the sieve and the sand
    relate to this scene?
  3. How are the passengers on the subway
    characterized? Use evidence to support your
    answer.
  4. How are Montags actions contrasted to those of
    the passengers?

11
  • 5. Whose behavior is considered antisocial
    according to the Fahrenheit society? Why?
  • 6. Whose behavior is considered antisocial
    according to your ideals? Why?
  • 7. What is Ray Bradburys message about the
    dangers of a society that does not think?

12
Example Is it because were having so much fun at home that weve forgotten the world? No one is interested in or shows concern about the war because they are too busy taking part in superficial activities created by the govt to keep people tittillated and happy.
