Fahrenheit 451

Semana del libro censurado / Banned Book Week

“Fahrenheit 451 es el título de una novela distópica publicada en 1953, cuyo autor es Ray Bradbury. El término "Fahrenheit 451" hace referencia a la temperatura a la que el papel de los libros se inflama y arde (equivale a 233º C).” (Wikipedia)

La historia fue llevada al cine en 1966 por François Truffaut. Ha habido varios intentos infructuosos de hacer una nueva versión sin que se haya materializado. Esta es una adaptación del “trailer” de la película y algunas citas de los protagonistas que nos permiten meditar sobre el poder del libro y la información.

Una buena lectura sobre la novela : THE LIFE OF THE MIND AND A LIFE OF MEANING: REFLECTIONS ON FAHRENHEIT 451 de Rodney A. Smolla*

 

Quote 1: "It [is] a pleasure to burn. It [is] special to see things eaten, to see things blackened and changed." Part 1, pg. 3

Quote 2: "’parlor walls’" Part 1, pg. 9

Quote 3: "relatives" Part 1, pg. 49

Quote 4: "’There must be something in books, things we can’t imagine, to make a woman stay in a burning house; there must be something there. You don’t stay for nothing.’" Part 1, pg. 51

Quote 5: "Nobody listens any more. . . . I just want someone to hear what I have to say. And maybe if I talk long enough, it’ll make sense." Part 2, pg. 82

Quote 6: "What traitors books can be! You think they’re backing you up, and they turn on you. Others can use them, too, and there you are, lost in the middle of the moor, in a great welter of nouns and verbs and adjectives." Part 2, pg. 107

Quote 7: "Its real beauty is that it destroys responsibility and consequences." Part 3, Og. 115

Quote 8: "The sun burnt every day. It burnt Time. The world rushed in a circle and turned on its axis and time was busy burning the years and the people anyway, without any help from him. So if he burnt things with the firemen and the sun burnt Time, that meant that everything burnt!" Part 3, pg. 141

(Bookrags)

Montag: "Do you remember what you asked me the other day; if I ever read the books I burn? Remember?"
Clarisse: "Um hmm."
Montag: "Last night I read one."

Captain: "Listen to me, Montag. Once to each fireman, at least once in his career, he just itches to know what these books are all about. He just aches to know. Isn’t that so?" 


Captain: "The books have nothing to say."

Censura de un libro en Perú

Semana del libro censurado / Banned Book Week

El blog portugués Viva Biblioteca Viva publica una declaración de Alonso Estrada Cuzcano el 26 de septiembre de 2009, donde denuncia la amenaza de censura para el libro De puño y letra de Abimael Guzmán (Presidente Gonzalo). El Presidente Gonzalo es el lider de líder del movimiento Sendero Luminoso y esto ha levantado una gran polémica en Perú e incluso generó una denuncia penal al editor a través del procurador público

No tengo todos los elementos ni el conocimiento para poder hacer un juicio sobre el hecho histórico pero como bien dice Alonso Estrada no se trata de “acerca de ideologías o posiciones políticas“ sino “principios que rigen la ética del profesional de la información.”.

Los invito a leer y meditar…
