In more than one occasion, the character is openly deprecated in public notwithstanding his high social standing in the New World. In a bid to survive these criticism and condemnations, he resorts to take solace in alcohol- a phenomenon that attracts him a further reproach across the board. At one time, Bernard is likened to a rhinoceros and a poor Devil by one of his former disgruntled lover Lenina following his failure to perform his manly duties on bed.
The following review contains humor. Look for the irony of the italicized parts when compared to the previous statements.
I have to apologize for this review. The concept of this book was so outlandish that I think it made my mind wander, and you may find some odd random thoughts scattered in it. Anyhow, this book was so silly and unrealistic. Like any of this could happen.
I really should look into getting that data entry position I saw in the job postings. Subliminal messaging through infancy and childhood also condition people to repeat idiotic platitudes as if they are genuine wisdom. I need to turn that frown upside down.
I should go buy some new ones and throw the old ones out. Should I get a new set of golf clubs? But would I play more if I got new clubs? The population even gets to zip around in their own private helicopters rather than cars.
Man, when are they going to come out with jet packs for everyone. I want my jet pack!
Casual sex is actively encouraged. These condom commercials on TV have gotten really racy. Like a businessman could ever become that popular. Is Steve Jobs making any announcements this week? While everyone seeks to be constantly entertained, all of the entertainment panders to the lowest common denominator.
Hey, Jersey Shore is on! Perhaps the most far fetched idea in this is that the population has been trained to sedate themselves with a drug called soma that relives any potential anxieties and keeps people from thinking about anything upsetting. I want a beer.
I guess this Huxley guy might have gotten lucky and predicted a few things, but he was way off base about where society was going.Sixteen years before Orwell's but eleven years after We by Yevgeny Zamyatin, this is a high water mark for the genre, In Brave New World, Aldous Huxley takes on consumerism, the media, genetic engineering, I am fine with that concept.4/5.
Alienation in Aldous Huxley's Brave New World Alienation Main Characters The novel presents two men as the main protagonists, Bernard Max, who as an alpha male desires to be part of the "World State" but struggles to do so due to his weak physique, and John, who rejects the "World State" and is also rejected from the indian society following a more Shakespearean way of life.
Yevgeny Zamyatin’s We and Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World are the two literary works that accentuate the theme of alienation in the classical societies that they were explicitly set to represent.
THE GREATEST ADVENTURES – What follows is a list of of my favorite adventure novels published during the Nineteenth Century (–, according to my eccentric but persuasive periodization schema) and during the Twentieth Century’s first eight decades (–).
The following contribution deals with an interesting case of intertextuality.
It compares the text of Huxley's Brave New World (BNW) both with one of its possible precursors and with one of its possible successors, namely the famous dystopia We by the Russian writer Yevgeni Zamyatin and Kurt Vonnegut's first novel Player Piano (PP).These two literary works provide interesting material in order.
