Describe the "wall" and the "family" in Fahrenheit 451.
In Fahrenheit 451, the parlor walls are extremely large television screens, which are the size of an entire wall of a person's home. These televisions are interactive and display high-definition images. The programs displayed on the parlor walls are shallow, absurd, and pointless. Mildred refers to the characters in her favorite program as her "family," and the actors talk over each other the entire time. The programs lack a plot and are simply random clips that captivate the viewers' attention.
