Words words words

I’m finally reading Fahrenheit 451 by way of an audiobook, and this snagged in my mind:

…that gibbering pack of tree apes that said nothing nothing nothing, and said it loud loud loud.

    Is that when his wife is watching “Shakespeare?” BTW don’t you find it slightly ironic that your listening to an audiobook of a story about written words being banned?

      No, it’s him thinking about her watching the immersive tv though.

      And no, not ironic. It’s literature that’s banned in the book, not writing itself.

        True.

        Reason I asked about Shakespeare is because the phrase is kinda reminiscent of “a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.”
