Reviews for Brave New World
Thought provoking text
'Brave New World' is a spine chilling dystopian text, which includes scarily accurate predictions of the present, whereby Aldous Huxley employs wonderful literary techniques and style of writing that allows audiences to imagine a world run by totalitarianism and oppression of the human condition.
By extrapolating aspects of political, sociological, philosophical, and scientific norms that transcend time, Huxley warns contemporary readers of issues that resonate within both the readers' and their own context. The composer presents an outlook on the concept of dystopia through his creation of the 'World State', a technocratic society governed by oppression, sterility, consumerism and complex scientific and technological advances.
Aldous Huxley's construction of a futuristic society that echoes the present in many aspects, subsequently indoctrinates his novel as a stimulating insight into both the past and the current world. By playing on society's imminent fears of the exploitation of technology, power and oppression, the appeal of the concept of dystopia assists Huxley in the creation of a piece of literature that will exceed the boundaries of time. by Christine
