Using the literary theory of Deconstruction, this paper explores the ontology of Guy Montag, the protagonist of Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451. By tracing Montag's journey towards individuality, as seen throughout his relationship to characters, but also the motif of fire itself, throughout the novel we find that in his search for it Montag simultaneously negates any individuality he may gain.
