Far in the future, the World Controllers have created the ideal society. Through clever use of genetic engineering, brainwashing and recreational sex and drugs all its members are happy consumers. Bernard Marx seems alone harbouring an ill-defined longing to break free.

A visit to one of the few remaining Savage Reservations where the old, imperfect life still continues, may be the cure for his distress...Huxley's ingenious fantasy of the future sheds a blazing light on the present and is considered to be his most enduring masterpiece.

Textul de pe ultima copertă

Now more than ever, “one of the most prophetic dystopian works of the twentieth century” (Wall Street Journal) must be read and understood by anyone concerned with preserving the human spirit in the face of our brave new world.
Aldous Huxley’s profoundly important classic of world literature, Brave New World is a searching vision of an unequal, technologically advanced future where humans are genetically bred, socially indoctrinated, and pharmaceutically anesthetized to passively uphold an authoritarian ruling order whose motto is “Community, Identity, Stability”—all at the cost of our freedom, humanity, and perhaps our souls.
“A genius who spent his life decrying the onward march of the Machine” (New Yorker), Huxley was a man of incomparable talents: equally an artist, a spiritual seeker, and one of history’s keenest observers of human nature and civilization. Brave New World, his masterpiece, has enthralled and terrified millions of readers, and retains its urgent relevance to this day as both a warning as we head into tomorrow and a thought-provoking, satisfying work of literature. Written in the shadow of the rise of fascism during the 1930s, Brave New World likewise speaks to a twenty-first-century world dominated by mass  entertainment, technology, medicine and pharmaceuticals, the arts of persuasion, and the hidden influence of elites.

Recenzii

“[A] masterpiece. ... One of the most prophetic dystopian works of the 20th century.”
