Montag's Character Development

FHT451-TGOFRE

Which quote from the text best exemplifies Montag's developing self-awareness and inner reflection?

A

"Montag looked at these men whose faces were sunburnt by a thousand real and ten thousand imaginary fires, whose work flushed their cheeks and fevered their eyes."

B

"He was not happy. He said the words to himself. He recognized this as the true state of affairs. He wore his happiness like a mask..."

C

"Montag said nothing but stood looking at the women's faces as he had once looked at the faces of saints in a strange church he had entered when he was a child."

D

"Montag grinned the fierce grin of all men singed and driven back by flame. He knew that when he returned to the firehouse, he might wink at himself, a minstrel man, burnt-corked, in the mirror."

E

"He stood looking up at the air-conditioning vent in the hall for a long time. His wife in theTV parlor paused long enough from reading her script to glance up."
