The Life of the Mind and a Life of Meaning: Reflections on Fahrenheit 451

Fahrenheit 451. By Ray Bradbury. 1953. New York: Del Rey Books. 2003 ed. Pp. 190. $6.99.

The future is not what it used to be. Ray Bradbury’s classic novel, Fahrenheit 451, published in 1953, is a cultural time marker, helping us to locate the past, evaluate the present, and imagine the future. Fahrenheit 451 still vexes our conscience and consciousness, just as other imaginative time markers do.
