This is a thematic question. Bradbury's main theme being that of censorship. If the afterward, Bradbury explains the reason he is sensitive to censorship, citing the attempts by others to restrict his writing. For example, he feels censored by letters suggesting he should give stronger roles to women or black men. Bradbury sees such suggestions and interventions as the first step towards censorship and book burning.
