  • 1. Storyboard for "The Hearth and the Salamander" Carly Cannoy, Rebekah Bennett, Michael Harrington
  • 2. Exposition Characterization (Character Anaylis) Characterization is the creation and representation of a ficitonial character. In the exposition of "The Hearth and the Salamander" we are introduced to Montag. With characterization we start to believe that this character is real and start to understand why he does the things he does. Montag is a middle aged man who works as a fireman. His job has never caused him any grief until he meets a young girl who opens up his one way of thinking to a odd thought of thinking for yourself and learning. This, combined with a bad call, causes him to re-think his job and his society. (Carly Cannoy)
  • 3. Inciting moment The inciting moment is when Montag meets Clarisse. Within their first meeting Montag starts to question all that he knew. Although he dosent share his disbelifes with anyone and plays it off as silly to question it. Even though he thinks its silly he still wonders if what she says is true. He finds himself enjoying their meetings and it has become rutien for them to speak to each other. Meeting Clarisse is the turning point for Montag. He starts to make self realizations, that will impact what will happen further along in the novel. Rebekah Bennett
  • 4. Conflict/Inciting Moment Conflict Conflict, the opposition of two characters or elements of the story, is used to make the inciting moment a hook for you to read. The two main conflicts in "The Hearth and the Salamander" is man versus self and man versus society. Montag is not sure what to do with his conscious saying to him not to keep the books while the other half of him wants to keep them and learn about them. Montag is also challenging the society he lives in because his conscious is saying that maybe how the society works is not the best way. In this story the conflict builds up to the later climax.(Carley Connoy) The conflict man vs. man is leading up to something- whether it be him going back to his fireman ways or exploring more about books and socioty (Rebekah Bennett)
  • 5. Rising Action Verbal Irony- Some of the verbal irony that is most noticed is the fact that they joke about the role of firemen in the past. They laugh at the idea of firemen putting out fire instead of starting them. This leads to more doubt in what happend in the past, and what is true or not. Dramatic Irony- Dramatic irony plays a large role in the story expecially when Montag is talking about the mechanical hound. He says its sad that all it will ever do is hunt, find, and kill. But Montag does not realize that this is him he is explaning. This is a rising action because again like verbal irony he grows from these ideas. (Rebekah Bennett)
  • 6. Rising Action Protagonist A protagonist can be defined as the leading (a hero or heroine too) character in a literary work. In "The Hearth and the Salamander" the protagonist is Montag, fighting against himself and the society. Montag is the main character of this book, another reason he is the protagonist. Protagonists fit into the storyboard with rising actions because the rising action moves you into the climax. Without a protagonist, or someone 'fighting' for something then you would have no climax. In "The Hearth and the Salamander" Montag becomes the protagonist fighting for change in his society (though not straight foward) leading into the climax pushing him into his real feelings. (Carly Cannoy)
  • 7. Rising Action Symbol A symbol is an object or a person in a story that represents something. In the Hearth and the Salamander some symbols are the salamander, the phoenix disc, Montag and houses having no porches. Both the salamander and the phoenix are animals that can survive in fire. Montag is a paper company. The houses with no porches symbolizes not having anywhere to sit and think. - M. H.
  • 8. Climax Plot Plot, the mian storyline, scheme, or plan of a literary work, is very evident by the climax of the "The Hearth and the Salamander." The plot of this story is the story of Montag finding a new way of living from a mysterious teenager and learning that what he thought was right might not be. After seeing horrible things, which is the climax of this story, his point of view changes a little and eventual makes a huge change in his life. The climax is when Montag and the other firemen go to burn books and the house, and the owner of the books and house ends up killing herself with her books. For Montag this is fuel to his 'fire' -- there must be something special in this books for someone to end their life for them. (Carly Cannoy)
  • 9. Denouement Theme A dominant idea, topic, or motif of a story; can also be called the theme. The theme of "The Hearth and the Salamander" is that what you think is right might not always be right. Montag believed that the burning of books was the right thing to do, and that the society he lived in was the perfect society. But he also had his doubts and with some help found that what he thought was not true, or at least got on the right track to finding that out. We learn the whole theme in the denoument, the end of the story. The denoument usually wraps up the story, thus finding your theme. (Carly Cannoy)
