January 25*

JOURNAL TOPIC: (today's tunes: "Iron Man" by Black Sabbath; "The Iron Wheel" by Tom Morello)

As Ernest Hemingway once observed, "The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong in the broken places.  But those that will not break it kills."  Our first impression of Montag is one of strength and confidence-- but almost immediately, his encounter with Clarisse causes him to turn inward, question himself, and confront the truth of his nature and his marriage.  Do you think think Montag will be broken?  Do you see "breaking" as evidence of strength or weakness?  Do you expect his brokenness to create a more successful resolution?  Will he survive the introspection and the forces that seek to prevent it?
