In Fahrenheit 451, what is the significance of Montag's read sentence about people dying over "breaking the small ends of eggs"?
In Fahrenheit 451, the significance of the sentence Montag reads about people dying rather than "breaking the small ends of eggs" points to a historical truth. Throughout history, people have proven themselves willing to face death rather than submit to governmental edicts which they believe are unfair. If people are willing to die over eggs, then they are certainly willing to die over matters holding more significance, such as censorship and attempts to eliminate literature.
