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)
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.
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
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 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
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)
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.
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.
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)
