Montag

“He hung up his black beetle-colored helmet shined it; he hung his flameproof jacket neatly; he showered luxuriously, and then, whistling, hands in pockets, walked across the upper floor of the fire station and fell down the hole. At the last moment, when disaster seemed positive, he pulled his hands from his pockets and broke his fall by grasping the golden pole. He slid to a squeaking halt, the heels one inch from concrete floor downstairs” (4). [Provide a page number for each quote.]

This passage is about the character of Montag and his actions upon returning to the firehouse. The fact that he carefully shines his helmet and hangs both his helmet and jacket “neatly” suggests that Montag is a particular person when it comes to his personal belongings. He seems to revel in routine. However, he also seems reckless and daring as evidenced when he “fell down the hole” and only “broke his fall” at the last minute. In addition, Montag seems quite confident in himself and his abilities as evidenced by his “whistling” as he recklessly throws himself down the hole; he has complete confidence that he can save himself from the fall. 

[Repeat for Clarisse, Repeat for Mildred]
