Similarly, it is asked, what do the fireman do for a living?
The firemen burn down houses that contain books. This is ironic because today firemen try to control fires and stop them.
Furthermore, how did Firemen know which houses had books? The firemen only know which houses have books in them if someone tells. For example, there was the old lady with all the books -- the one who burned herself up along with her books when the firemen came. The firemen knew about her house because one of her neighbors told on her. And Montag's house was the same way.
Also asked, what is the official slogan of the firemen in Fahrenheit 451?
Official Slogan: "Monday burn Millay, Wednesday Whitman, Friday Falkner, burn em' to ashes, then burn the ashes."
Why is Fahrenheit 451 a banned book?
In 1953, Ray Bradbury published his dystopian novel Fahrenheit 451. The novel is dystopian because it paints a picture of a terrible future world where free thought is discouraged and people lack the ability to connect to one another. In this world, books are illegal and any that remain are burned by firemen.
