BRAVE NEW WORLD

BRAVE NEW WORLD

  • Aldous Leonard Huxley 
  •  (26 July 1894 – 22 November 1963)

    was an English writer and philosopher.

    One of his famous novel is Brave New World. This novel written in 1931.

    Huxley said that Brave New World was inspired by the utopian novels of

    H. G. Wells, including A Modern Utopia (1905) and Men Like Gods (1923).

  • Title comes from Shakespeare’s The Tempest
  • Used ironically
  • In different languages, title is changed, sometimes to reflect their versions of works:
    • French: The Best of All Worlds
    • German: Beautiful New World
    • Italian: The New World
    • Spanish: A Happy World
    • In Shakespeare’s time, “brave” meant “beautiful” or “good looking”

The title

All individuals divided into five castes:

  • Alphas
  • Betas
  • Gammas
  • Deltas
  • Epsilons
  • Their lives are predetermined. Their goals are given to them.

" Euphoric, narcotic" it is all about soma. It's the best tool the government has for controlling its population. It sedates, calms, and most importantly distracts a person from realizing that there's actually something very, very wrong – the citizens of the World State are enslaved.

“You do look glum! What you need is a gramme of soma.”

Ford

  • Throughout Brave New World, the citizens of the World State substitute the name of Henry Ford, the early twentieth-century industrialist and founder of the Ford Motor Company, wherever people in our own world would say “Lord”. This demonstrates for technology—specifically the efficient, mechanized factory production of goods that Henry Ford pioneered that even at the level of casual conversation and habit, religion has been replaced by reverence.
