In Monday’s class we discussed the significance of the Sieve and Sand. A panic of not being able to retain anything was expressed. I can relate. As a library that lost everything, I have felt empty, forgotten, and depressed for many years much like the feeling Mildred portrays in Fahrenheit 451. I see a coorelation between sadness and a loss of books… and even her lack of ability to remember things can be tied to this idea as well. I empathize with her character a lot.
