I grew up on Disney movies. Princesses and dragons and the prince that always saves them.When I was little I thought Cinderella really did live in the castle at Disney World. Hopelessly I believe everyone can still have their own fairytale.
The hearth and the Salamander can also mean happiness and if Montag chose to be happy or not. The two things in his life his home and his work. Did it really make him happy. He chose happiness over this home and his work by reading the books.
