    I wrote this paper in my english class after reading 'A Brave New World': On the very last page of Aldous Huxley's book, A Brave New World, he describes John as swinging slowly in circles after hanging himself (Huxley 259). It's believed that Huxley's main point of this ending to his story was to tell his readers that after all John's effort of trying to change the brave new world, it was profoundly hopeless and the only thing left to do was to give up. This image creates a belief that Huxley wa...

    When Aldous Huxley wrote Brave New World in 1931, nobody imagined that his fairytale story would someday be a reality. It is almost scary to see how accurate Huxley's far-fetched fantasies came to be. When Huxley wrote about the conformity, drug use and sex and technology of the society, he was almost pinpoint exact to predicting today's societies. Unfortunately, all of these things haven't exactly changed our society today for the better. It is amazing to see how accurately Aldous Huxley was i...

    Brave New World is primarily a satire on Huxley s contemporary society While writing Brave New World in 1932, Aldous Huxley was affected by the political, economic, social and scientific situation of the time. This is seen by Huxley incorporating, and in fact satirizing, such issues in his novel. These issues provided the basis for Huxley s projection into the future, and hence the satire of those topics is the main feature of the novel. They were satirized by Huxley holding up human vices to sc...

    Huxley's view In Neil postman's amusing ourselves to death, Huxley teaches us that in the age of advanced technology, spiritual devastation is more likely to come from an enemy with a smiling face than from one whose countenance exudes suspicion and hate. In his teachings we learn that we are always watching our neighbor in order to protect ourselves. Huxley says that all Americans are Marxist, for we believe nothing if not that history is moving us toward some preordained paradise and that tech...

As an alternative he turned to literature ...

    The Brave New World: Is it already upon us? Huxley's vision of the future, portrayed in the novel Brave New World, holds many similarities to America's present day society. Huxley's vision was a vision of a trivial society, filled with self-pleasure and ignorance. In society today, knowledge is no longer praised as much as it has been in past generations. This has caused a scarcity in the willingness to learn. Also, mind-altering substances have become more and more common as today's technology ...
