I believe that the answer to this question is Icarus, the son of Daedalus.  He was the guy in Greek mythology who made the wings out of wax and flew too close to the sun.  The wax melted, the feathers fell out, and he dropped to earth and died.Beatty compares Montag to him at the start of Part III.  He does this just as they have gotten to Montag’s house and Montag has realized what has happened.  Beatty tells Montag that Montag essentially got too bold and didn’t listen when Beatty tried to warn him.He says Montag has flown too close to the sun and burnt his wings.
