A Discourse study of Fahrenheit 451 : Hegemony, Otherness and Class struggle

Detta är en Kandidat-uppsats från Umeå universitet/Institutionen för språkstudier

Sammanfattning: This thesis studies Ray Bradbury’s novel Fahrenheit 451 using Critical Discourse Analysis as the primary tool. It argues that the narrative develops through the supporting characters’ actions, and the different societal discourses of hegemony, otherness and class struggle they represent. Basing the analysis on Althusserian and Gramscian ideas and discussing citizen’s transformation from subjects to individuals, this study concludes that although a subject may be power-less and wary, it is by learning to act through being given information through discourse that personal development occurs.
