Descriere

Descriere de la o altă ediție sau format:
'So, in the end, above ground you must have the Haves, pursuing pleasure and comfort and beauty, and below ground the Have-nots, the Workers...'At a Victorian dinner party, in Richmond, London, the Time Traveller returns to tell his extraordinary tale of mankind's future in the year 802,701 AD. It is a dystopian vision of Darwinian evolution, with humans split into an above-ground species of Eloi, and their troglodyte brothers. The first book H. G. Wells published, The Time Machine is a scientific romance that helped invent the genre of science fiction and the time travel story. Even before its serialisation had finished in the spring of 1895, Wells had been declared 'a man of genius', and the book heralded a fifty year career of a major cultural and political controversialist. It is a sardonic rejection of Victorian ideals of progress and improvement and a detailed satirical commentary on the Decadent culture of the 1890s.This edition features a contextual introduction, detailed explanatory notes, and two essays Wells wrote just prior to the publication of his first book.

Notă biografică

Nascido no perímetro da Grande Londres, em Bromley, Kent, Inglaterra, Herbert George Wells, nasceu a 21 de setembro 1866, e veio a falecer a 13 de agosto de 1949 com 79 anos de idade em Regent's Park, Londres, Inglaterra. Além de escritor e romancista, exerceu as profissões de jornalista e historiador. As suas obras foram revolucionárias no género de ficção-científica, sendo um dos seus máximos expoentes e autor de obras cujo impacto na ciência e nos desafios da humanidade se revelaram fulcrais. Obras como Time Machine (A Máquina do Tempo) que oferece uma visão sobre as consequências do desejo humano de conquistar a possibilidade de viajar no tempo, ou The Invisable Man (O Homem Invisível); The War of the Worlds (A Guerra dos Mundos); The Island of Docteur Moreau (A Ilha do Dr. Moreau); que inspiraram a criação de inúmeras obras derivadas, inclusivamente cinematográficas, demonstram o quão influente se tornou a obra de H.G. Wells. Todas estas obras adaptadas para cinema assim como outras: The Door in The Wall (A Porta no Muro), presente nesta edição da Contra Escrita, realizado por Glenn H. Alvey Jr. numa curta-metragem de 29 minutos em 1956, e The Country of the Blind (Em Terra de Cegos) em 2014 dirigido por Travis Mills.H.G. Wells é por muitos considerado o pai da ficção-científica, será, a par de Jules Verne (Júlio Verne) seu contemporâneo e colega na área literária, respetivamente no género de ficção científica, um dos maiores inspiradores dos grandes objetivos científicos e grandes passos da humanidade do século XX, e que se seguirão com certeza agora século XXI adiante. Wells foi também um dos ases das Short-Stories (Contos) e um dos seus propulsores. Tendo escrito e publicado dezenas delas ao longo da sua carreira, pese ter sido nos romances que a sua obra ganhou maior protagonismo.H.G. Wells era também um reconhecido socialista e pacifista cujas obras geraram enormes controvérsias e foram muitas vezes proféticas. Os seus romances mais tardios eram mais realistas e de diversos géneros literários, incluindo romances contemporâneos, históricos e de comentário social.

Recenzii

“[Wells] contrives to give over humanity into the clutches of the Impossible and yet manages to keep it down (or up) to its humanity, to its flesh, blood, sorrow, folly.” —Joseph Conrad

Caracteristici

Part of H.G. Wells new collection to include The Invisible Man and The War of the Worlds

Textul de pe ultima copertă

In The Time Machine Wells pioneers the concept of travel in the 'Fourth Dimension' and speculates about the ultimate decay of the human species. The world of the effete Eloi and ape-like Morlocks, the age of giant crabs, and the final portrayal of the heat-death of the sun constitute an unforgettable vision of the future. The Time Traveller's narrow escape from the remote descendants of humanity is paralleled by Edward Prendick's horrifying adventures among the Beast Folk of The Island of Doctor Moreau. Moreau, a ruthless vivisector, chooses an uninhabited Pacific island for his attempts to change animals into human beings on the operating table. Prendick soon fears that he, too, may become a victim of Moreau's experiments. Even at their most bleakly pessimistic and ironic, these stories testify to the resources of human courage and ingenuity. This edition offers authoritative texts of both novels, explanatory notes, and an introduction setting them in the context of Wells's life and thought.
