Abstract:

This paper discusses the possible heuristic effects of reading dystopian literary texts and its reflective critical dimension due to modern sociability and its views of the future. It analyses the importance of reading and literature in the development of a critical awareness that will promote changes and ethic behaviors as opposed to alienation and submission to modernity, observed in the metaphor of the “book-men” in the novel Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. It addresses theoretical aspects of the speculative literature of science fiction by anchoring on postulations of esthetic reception and proposing, as an analytical road for these texts, the valorization of the diegetic content, the perlocutory dimension, the emphasis on meaning and on text as symbolic form, and the interdisciplinary perception which is activated through the reading process and the construction of the “memories of the future”.
