The Time Machine is a fantastic science fiction novella by H. G. Wells, published in 1895. Wells is generally credited with the popularization of the concept of time travel by using a vehicle that allows an operator to travel purposely and selectively forwards or backwards in time. The term "time machine," coined by Wells, is now almost universally used to refer to such a vehicle.

The Time Machine has since been adapted into three feature films of the same name, as well as two television versions, and a large number of comic book adaptations. It has also indirectly inspired many more works of fiction in many media.

The book's protagonist is an English scientist and gentleman inventor living in Richmond, Surrey, in Victorian England, and identified by a narrator simply as the Time Traveller. The narrator recounts the Traveller's lecture to his weekly dinner guests that time is simply a fourth dimension, and his demonstration of a tabletop model machine for travelling through it. The book engagingly introduces the scientist who uses a Time Machine to be transferred into the age of a slowly dying earth. Humans have been separated by time, genetics, wars and change of their habitats into two different races, the Eloi and the subterranean Morlocks. At only about 100 pages, Wells manages to delve into a lot of different topics, among which can be found the ambiguity of human natures, the mutual effects of humans on our planet and our planet on humans, as well as a profound look into what defines humanity itself. He reveals that he has built a machine capable of carrying a person through time, and returns at dinner the following week to recount a remarkable tale, becoming the new narrator...

--------

How will the Earth look like 800,000 years in the future? That's a question everyone can only attempt to find an answer to, while H.G. Wells was one of the first writers who tackled the topic of time-travelling and painted a rather convincing picture of the future.

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.
