Compare Guy Montag's relationship to Clarisse to his relationship with his wife, Mildred. Who do you think he feels closer to and why? (p3-25)

Certainly Montag has had an awakening of sorts when he meets Clarisse. All his pent up frustrations about his vacuous marriage come flooding out. Mildred is simply leading the life dictated by society. Montag is a counterculture rebel. Their relationship, thus, is not typical in that Montag consistently calls Mildred's pettiness and superficiality (which is the norm) out in private, and in front of her friends.
