Montag's destination was to see the world the way it really is and to let the world touch him deeply inside.


On page 162 -163Montag says " We'll just start walking today and see the world the and way the world walks around and talks the way it really looks. ... and will while none of it will be me when it goes in after a while it'll all gather together inside and it'll be me.

The world of the city was all illusion nothing was real. Nothing was allowed to really touch a person deeply. People were suppose to be happy a surface happiness.

Captain Beatty explains this on pages 59-62 " page 61 If you don't want a man unhappy politically don't give him too sides to a question to worry him better yet give him none. "
page 61 -62" The important thing for you to remember Montag is we're the Happiness Boys ..... We stand against the small tide of those who want to make everyone unhappy with conflicting theory and thought. ... I don't think you realize how important you are we are to our happy world as it stands now.

Montage wanted the world to actually touch him to change him. He was angry at the superficiality of the illusion of the city world with its wall theaters and lack of thoughts and reality.


Parentheses can include almost any information within them. What's important to remember is that the sentence must still make sense if the information inside the parentheses is taken out.


In scholarly writing, such as APA writing, parentheses usually are used to introduce an acronym that will be used in the rest of the paper in place of a full name, such as the American Psychological Association (APA).

Parentheses are also used in in-text citations, though their usage varies greatly on which edition of which format you use and would be too lengthy to go into here. However, you would, in MLA, at the end of a sentence based on thoughts that were not your own, place the following information; (Author's last name page number).


A compound sentence is a sentence containing two or more independent clauses (complete sentences), joined by a coordinating conjunction.


"I went home early" is a complete sentence with a subject (I), a verb (went), a direct object (home), and an adverb (early) which modifies the verb.
The independent clauses of a compound sentence should be related in some way.

Examples of compound sentences:
I went home early but I forgot my assignment book.
- two independent clauses joined by the conjunction 'but'.

I wasn't feeling well so I went home early.
- two independent clauses joined by the conjunction 'so'.

I went home early since it was a half day.
Because it was a half day, I went home early.
- joined by the coordinating conjunctions 'since' and 'because'.
Note that the two independent clauses can be in the reverse order with a comma separating them. The coordinating conjunction can start the sentence.

I went home early and washed my hair.
NOT a compound sentence. The second part of the sentence has no subject of its own.
The conjunction 'and' is joining the compound verb.


I vote for will being incorrect. Changing it to a more uncertain word such as may will bring about a consistent message of a bit of hope that the country may get rid of its crises.


I'd like to add my two cents to the discussion.

In working a problem like this, the most important thing is to first understand what the sentence is trying to say. In my reading of it, I think there is an attempt to talk about the presence (or lack) of hope that the country will get rid (or not get rid) of crises that are affecting it.

The next thing to keep in mind is that we have a semicolon to deal with that is not allowed to be deleted - there are no asterisks around it. So the first part of the sentence is, in my mind, the most important - it sets the tone for the part of the sentence that comes after the semicolon (which is the additional information supporting the part of the sentence before the semicolon).

And lastly, we're asked about the possible presence of one word that is wrong. So we can't change more than one.

Let's look at its first. Is it correct?

Yes, it is. In talking about crises that are associated with or belong to a country, we need to use a possessive form. "Country" is third-person singular, and so the word to use is, indeed, its. #color(green)root#

Now we can look at the other two words in tandem: a and will. We need to look at these two together because, as it stands, they help each other project a meaning of a. there being hope, b. the country will get rid of its problems.

Let's play with these words see what happens.

Here's the original:

There is a little hope; the country will get rid of its crises.

I have problems with this one - there is the presence of a little hope but then we're certain the country will get rid of its crises... sounds way too certain at the end for what starts out sounding more hopeful at the beginning.

And now compare that to there being no hope (eliminate a):

There is little hope; the country will get rid of its crises.

Doesn't really work - there's little hope, but then we're certain the country will get rid of its crises?

How about we change will to won't:

There is a little hope; the country won't get rid of its crises.

Also doesn't really work - there's a little hope, but then we're certain the country won't get rid of its crises?

And so I think if I was to change one word in this, it'd be will. I think we need a word that is less certain. Let's try changing will to may:

There is a little hope; the country may get rid of its crises.

And that to me expresses a consistent theme - the presence of a bit of hope and the reason being that the country may be able to be rid of its crises.


Words that can modify a noun are:
articles, adjectives, adverbs, nouns, and pronouns.


The articles are:
DEFINITE ARTICLE: the; used to identify a specific noun.
INDEFINITE ARTICLES: a (used before a noun starting with a consonant sound), an (used before a noun starting with a vowel sound); used to identify a singular general noun.

ADJECTIVES: An adjective describes or qualifies a noun (a big dog, a small dog); adjectives are used before the noun or after a linking verb (This is an easy subject. or This is hard.); two or more adjectives can be used together (a beautiful, young lady). There are hundreds of adjectives, some samples are: happy, sad, green, white, special, somber, chewy, dark, heavy, sweet, lucky, wonderful, etc.

ADVERBS: An adverb, which is used to modify verbs, can also modify adjectives, which is additional information about a noun; for example a very happy birthday, his frequently long speeches, a simply delicious dish, etc.

POSSESSIVE NOUNS are used to indicate ownership, possession, origin or purpose. A possessive noun is formed by adding an apostrophe -s ('s) to the end of the word, or just an apostrophe to plural nouns that already end with -s ('); for example, the book's cover or the books' covers; the child's coat or the children's coats; etc.

ATTRIBUTIVE NOUNS are nouns used to describe other nouns (nouns used as adjectives), for example horse farm, house plant, vegetable broth, school books, shoe lace, etc.

The modifying pronouns are:
POSSESSIVE ADJECTIVES, my, your, his, her, its, our, their.
A possessive adjective takes the place of possessive noun indicating that the noun belongs to someone or something: for example, his bicycle, her birthday, its leaves, their house, etc.


To differentiate Horatian from Juvenalian satire, notice whether or not it is funny and light-hearted. If it is funny and light-hearted, then it's Horatian. If it isn't, it's Juvenalian.



Juvenalian satire can be defined as bitter, and angry attacking. There are millions of examples of juvenalian satire around the world, but here are three:

Star Tribune
This image is juvenalian satire since it is definitely not funny and light-hearted, like horatian satire. It attacks the problem of the Black Lives Matter movement by displaying a policeman from Ferguson about to shoot three African Americans, while yelling at the media to stop filming. By showing the policeman and three victims screaming "Don't shoot," the author is clearly using juvenalian satire.

This image is juvenalian satire since it attacks the creation of the Disney American History Theme Park by mocking a photo from the Vietnam War. The author picks a gruesome picture and mocks it, by drawing Goofy into it, indicating the infiltration and incorrect way Disney is creating the Theme Park. Also, it's definitely not light hearted or funny. (So it's not Horatian)

This image attacks the issue of global warming by showing two polar bears swimming in water, with the sun beating down upon them while one of them wishes the other "Happy Earth Day." This attacks the people who believe that global warming doesn't exist by displaying two bears that are swimming, with no ice or snow in sight. Plus, it's not light hearted and funny.

Hope this helps!
