Authors from Shakespeare to Ray Bradbury are often inspired by real life events.  We recognize Shakespeare's characters from the headlines of history: Caesar, Hamlet, Macbeth.  Fahrenheit 451 started as a short story called "The Pedestrian" that Bradbury wrote after being stopped by police for taking a walk.

Write about your favorite book, play, short story, poem, or song that was inspired by or based on real people or events.  What effect/s did the fictional account create?  How did it influence your knowledge or understanding?
