About The Brave New World Collection

Untitled DocumentPublished in 1932, Aldous Huxley displayed a prescient genius in his masterwork "Brave New World." The book takes place in the utopian "World State" where all citizens consume a daily dose of soma, a drug used to fight depression, babies are conceived and born in laboratories, and the most popular form of entertainment is "feelies", movies incorporating touch. In spite of his consumption of mass-produced goods and promiscuous sex – the only kind allowed in the World State – Bernard Marx remains disaffected until he meets a young woman who just might feel as he does."Crome Yellow", Huxley's first novel published in 1921, is an ironic send-up of the English upper classes from which he himself sprung. Published in 1948, "Ape and Essence" takes place in Los Angeles circa 2108. Following the almost total devastation of the planet during WWIII, a "rediscovery expedition" from New Zealand tries to make sense of what is left. In 1958's "Brave New World Revisited," Huxley describes how his 30s fantasy has turned into frightening reality much more quickly than he had ever dreamed. In 1958, he saw an overpopulated world dominated by commercials, people taking tranquilizer drugs, and surrendering their individuality and freedom for security and modern comfort.Born in Surrey, England in 1894, Huxley was a member of a distinguished family. His grandfather, T.H. Huxley, was a famous follower of Darwin, and his father, Leonard, was a prominent literary figure. His mother was descended from English poets, and his brother, Julian, became a famous biologist. Huxley's plans to become a doctor were derailed after a bout of eye disease left him nearly blind. Instead, he completed a degree in literature. Forging a life-long friendship with novelist D.H. Lawrence, Huxley and his wife Maria traveled with Lawrence and his wife Frieda to Italy, where he spent most of the 1920s. In 1937, Huxley relocated to southern California where he spent the remainder of his life. It was there that he began his experiments with hallucinogenic drugs, including mescaline and LSD, which culminated in 1954's "The Doors of Perception." Huxley died on November 22, 1963, his death overshadowed by that of President John F. Kennedy.To read this collection on your Symbian-based phone, you must first install an ebook reader.
