Is a story about what the writer thinks it's about? Or is it about what the reader thinks it's about? Ray Bradbury stated that his classic novel Fahrenheit 451 is not about what everyone thinks it's about.
Even Bradbury’s authorized biographer, Sam Weller, in The Bradbury Chronicles, refers to Fahrenheit 451 as a book about censorship.Art is about expression. It's also about interpretation. The answer to the question is: The story is about both. That's something we can discuss and learn from. Sometimes questions can have more than one answer. (Just not in dictionaries.)
Bradbury, a man living in the creative and industrial center of reality TV and one-hour dramas, says it is, in fact, a story about how television destroys interest in reading literature.
