Montag reads the poem "Dover Beach". The poem is symbolic of their society.

It becomes a sad commentary about their own society. It decries that faith being once so full was now "retreating, to the breath of the night wind" . It reflects on society having "neither joy nor love nor light" anymore." This of course is a valid representation of their own society.
