Was Montag a hero? Why?
Answers 1Add Yours
I think Montag can be considered a hero. He is a dynamic character that changes the world. He certainly follows the classic hero's journey. He is faced with a question through a mentor figure (Clarisse). Montag discovers that he really is not happy. He then goes through various stages of the hero's quest. He accepted the call to adventure (exploring books), he crosses the threshold (steals books) and spends time in the belly of the whale ( His house burns, Mildred leaves, on the run). Along with these are the steps of initiation and the final return.
