Who is this Faber character anyway?
As Montag continues his exploration of books, he seeks out Professor Faber. Enter mentor #2. Superficially, Faber appears the complete opposite of Beatty--books are necessary--at least the good ones. But dig a little deeper, there are quite a few ways he is similar to Beatty.
Re-read sections of "The Sand and the Sieve" and explore how Professor Faber compares to Captain Beatty, and then discuss the impact Faber has on Montag.
