fahrenheit 451In contrast, what does Montag next hear and long for?
Montag longs for knowledge of the past (he keeps grilling Clarisse and Faber for info) and happiness. I don't know where in the book you are talking about when you write, "In contrast..." but perhaps this will help you.
Is it possible for you to give some context to the question? What happened originally that we can contrast Montag's next actions to?
