  1. I have not read any of these works. Look for similarities, even subtle ones, in them. Are the characters or speakers similar in any way? Do they all act alone or in concert with others? Any similarities are fodder for comparison.

  2. All were written by Ray Bradbury. All were originally published between 1950 - 1953, so all had many of the same themes as his book, Fahrenheit 451, published in 1953. Consider the themes in all three, and be sure to consider the historical context in which he wrote.
