How to write an montag essay

Does montag kill Beatty out of self defense in fahrenheit 451?

I have to write an essay…Does montag kill Beatty out of self defense or to preserve something lost? Has Montag avenged the deaths of Mrs. Hudson and Clarisse? Can Montag justify murder in defense of books? Finally, do the extreme circumstances of MOntag’s world justify lawless behavior to preserve the freedom to read? User tags:domontag
