Повесть знаменитого американского писателя-фантаста «451 градус по Фаренгейту» написана более полувека назад, но своей актуальности не потеряла и по сей день. Ее лейтмотив - озабоченность духовным обликом будущего. Будущее, как его видел Бредбери, довольно мрачно: тоталитарное государство, в котором пресекается любое инакомыслие. Реклама, бесконечные телешоу - вот и все, что нужно человеку для безмятежного счастья. Так решило государство, и оно защищает своих граждан в меру собственного разумения: разговаривать друг с другом - значит думать, думать заставляют книги, поэтому, дабы не нарушать покоя обывателей, их надлежит сжигать. 451 градус по Фаренгейту - это температура горения бумаги. Предлагаем вниманию читателей неадаптированный текст повести, снабженный комментариями и словарем.
