One of the most notable forms of irony in this novel is that the firemen are supposed to put out fires but here the firemen start the fires for anyone who has the knowledge of books or are in the possession of books. Society needs to conform to the same ideas and if you are caught having more knowledge then some you are put to death or sent away.
