4th Hour Blog Question

Our group question is:

How are Clarisse and Julia alike with love and rebelling when dealing with Montag and Winston?

Unlike Julia to Winston, Clarisse never really showed any love towards Montag. She kept herself at a distance, and only offered true friendship. Both ladies were willing to disobey the laws of the time, in order to converse with the two men. Examples that I found were when Clarisse thought "outside the box" when she wasn't supposed to, which eventually lead to Montag's infamous rebellion. In 1984, Julia went outside of the society's rules (in a round-about-way), in order to show Winston that there was a chance towards rebellion against Big Brother and the Party.

I think,Clarisse and Julia get Winston and Montag to rebel and they also give support to them and give them confidence in their actions.

Simply put, its the understanding that Clarisse and Julia demonstrate towards Montag and Winston, respectively, which motivates the protagonists to rebel.

I think that they are alike in that their love itself is a rebellion just like their silent actions against the government are also rebellions.

I don't think they are alike in love, but in the way the are both rebellious, and how they both spark Montag's and Winston's intrest in how thier societys work
