Brave New World

Brave New World

Author: Aldous Huxley Format: Hardback Release Date: 09/11/2018

This volume of criticism presents a variety of new essays on Aldous Huxley's Brave New World, a classic in the science fiction and dystopian genres. These essays delve into the cultural, historical, comparative and critical contexts for understanding Brave New World. For readers who are studying it for the first time, several essays survey the critical conversation regarding this work from all standard critical perspectives - social, gender, post-modern, psychological, and cultural as well as the more traditional historical and close readings.Aldous Huxley's Brave New World is (along with Evgeny Zamyatin's We and George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four) one of the founding texts of the genre of dystopian fiction. Such narratives, involving the exploration of possible dark, oppressive futures, have become one of the most popular genres of contemporary popular culture. Those narratives have recently become extremely common, even in Young Adult fiction. However, the founding texts of the genre remain compelling and continue to set its terms. Of these founding texts, Brave New World is widely acknowledged to be the one whose dystopian future most closely matches the Western world as it has actually evolved since the initial publication of the text more than eighty years ago. The essays in this volume examine the ways in which Brave New World continues to serve as an effective satirical commentary on our own reality, as well as the ways it continues to provide models for the numerous dystopian fictions that are being produced today.

Eine meisterhafte Biographie uber Pere Joseph, den geheimen Vertrauten und Berater Kardinals Richelieus - und das Psychogramm eines tiefreligiosen Menschen in einem Leben zwischen Religion, Politik, Mystik und MachtDie "e;graue Eminenz"e; wurde er einst von seinen Gegnern genannt. Grau deshalb, um ihn von seinem Herrn in der scharlachroten Robe zu unterscheiden. Die Macht des Einflusses und die historische Wirkung, die von dem stets im Hintergrund bleibenden asketischen Kapuzinerpater ausgingen, machten seine Stellung beispielhaft fr viele Jahrhunderte und gaben dem einstigen Spottnamen einen gefrchteten Beiklang. In der Biographie dieser faszinierenden Persnlichkeit eines Mannes, der von politischem Sendungsbewusstsein und religisem Feuer gleichermaen durchglht war, zeichnet Huxley das Bild einer ganzen Epoche und ihrer geheimen Kraftstrme.

Einer der letzten Romane von Aldous Huxley - ein Meisterwerk voller Humor, Sprachgewalt und intellektueller Gedanken"e;Das Genie und die Gttin"e; erzhlt die Geschichte eines brillanten Professors, seiner wunderschnen Frau und einem jungen Mann, der ihre Welt in Stcke reit.

Ein Meisterwerk, das durch seine Unaufflligkeit glnzt, und als das Gegenstck zu Huxleys bekanntesten Roman "e;Schne neue Welt"e; gilt. "e;Sollte Huxleys mit hchster Meisterschaft aufgebaute Erzhlung eine Moral haben, so wre es wohl die: da der perfekte Gehirnmensch nicht nur am Leben vorbeilebt, sondern den Tod ausstreut und noch gar nicht einmal auf seine Opfer achtet."e; (Christian E.

Jahrhunderts von Aldous Huxley, dem Autor von "e;Schone neue Welt"e;. 1634 wurde der gutaussehende und zgellose Priester Urbain Grandier verhrt, gefoltert und auf dem Scheiterhaufen verbrannt. Er wurde fr schuldig befunden, mit dem Teufel im Bunde zu stehen, sowie ein ganzes Frauenkloster verfhrt und ins Unglck gestrzt zu haben. Huxley erzhlt hier vom sensationellsten Fall von Massenbesessenheit und sexueller Hysteria im Mittelalter. Grandier selbst beteuerte stets seine Unschuld, aber noch vier Jahre nach seinem Tod wurden die Nonnen exorziert, um sie von ihren Dmonen zu befreien. "e;Die Phnomene von Loudun sowohl im Hinblick auf die Haorgien und Schauprozesse unseres Jahrhunderts wie unter den Aspekten der tiefenpsychologischen Erkenntnis in ein theologisch wie philosophisch sine ira et studio entworfenes Bild der menschlichen Mglichkeiten einzuordnen, ist der im hchsten Grade produktive Sinn von Aldous Huxleys Studie."e; (Christian E.

Ends and Means An Inquiry into the Nature of Ideals

Ends and Means An Inquiry into the Nature of Ideals

Author: Aldous Huxley Format: Hardback Release Date: 25/09/2017

Contemporary intellectuals still struggle over the relationship of ends to means, especially in political discourse. Pacifism is still an important topic today, as terrorism and dictatorial states abound. Many will find solace in Ends and Means, while others will find the book only a case study of the relationship of ethics to politics. Aldous Huxley examines common issues in a unique fashion. How can the regression in charity through which we are living, and for which each one of us is in some measure responsible, be halted and reversed? How can existing society be transformed into the ideal society described by the prophets? How can the average sensual man and the exceptional (and more dangerous) ambitious man be transformed into a non-attached being, one who can create a society significantly better than our own? Huxley discusses the relationship between the theories and the practices of reformers and the nature of the universe. He argues that our beliefs about the ultimate nature of reality help us formulate conceptions of right and wrong, not only in our private life, but also in the sphere of politics and economics. Far from being irrelevant, our philosophical beliefs are the final determining factor in our actions. This provocative classic volume, now available in paperback, will continue to stimulate discussion and thought.

The Nineteen Eighty-Four written by Orwell, We written by Zamjatin and it are collectively called the Trilogy of "e;Anti-Utopian"e;, and it has a deep influence on the domestic and foreign literary and ideological circles.This is a fable work that shows the future vision of human society in Huxley's eyes.Through the effective scientific and psychological engineering, human beings have been genetically engineered to be members of various levels of society, and completely become tame machines.

In this eloquent work, the author uses his rich sociological and anthropological knowledge to compare all aspects between the modern society and his allegorical environment in Brave New World. For some aspects, such as overpopulation, propaganda and brainwashing and chemical persuasion, his early pessimistic prophecies are coming true.This book includes Huxley's two classic works.

Crome Yellow

Crome Yellow

Author: Aldous Huxley, Sheba Blake Format: eBook Release Date: 17/04/2017

Crome Yellow is the first novel by British author Aldous Huxley. In the book, Huxley satirises the fads and fashions of the time. It is the story of a house party at Crome, a parodic version of Garsington Manor, home of Lady Ottoline Morrell, a house where authors such as Huxley and T. S. Eliot used to gather and write. The book contains a brief pre-figuring of Huxley's later novel, Brave New World. Mr. Scogan, one of the characters, describes an "e;impersonal generation"e; of the future that will "e;take the place of Nature's hideous system. In vast state incubators, rows upon rows of gravid bottles will supply the world with the population it requires. The family system will disappear; society, sapped at its very base, will have to find new foundations; and Eros, beautifully and irresponsibly free, will flit like a gay butterfly from flower to flower through a sunlit world."e; Crome Yellow is in the tradition of the English country house novel, as practised by Thomas Love Peacock, in which a diverse group of characters descend upon an estate to leech off the host. They spend most of their time eating, drinking, and holding forth on their personal intellectual conceits. There is little plot development.

Reintoarcere in minunata lume noua

Author: Aldous Huxley Format: eBook Release Date: 14/06/2016

Publicat in 1958, eseul lui Aldous Huxley este un comentariu pe marginea romanului Minunata lume noua, exprimind aceeasi viziune pesimista asupra vietii si angoasa indusa de progresul stiintific si tehnologic in detrimentul valorilor morale. Autorul constata ca previziunile sale din 1931, cind scria Minunata lume noua, se adeveresc mai repede decit era de asteptat, dobindind un caracter aproape inevitabil. Suprapopularea si supraorganizarea ameninta din ce in ce mai mult libertatea individului, iar incercarile de a contracara manipularea, propaganda mincinoasa si spalarea creierelor par sortite esecului. Fortele cu care ne confruntam sint poate prea mari pentru a fi invinse, conchide Huxley, dar este de datoria noastra sa facem tot ce ne sta in putere pentru a le opune rezistenta"e;.

In one of his most significant pieces of non-fiction, the mind behind Brave New World presents a thorough and articulate comparison of different forms of mysticism.Written for an audience presumed to be primarily familiar with Christianity, The Perennial Philosophy aims to extract greater theological truths from the common threads found across religions, and to explore how they can be used to judge mankind (and how it often fails to meet the standards set). It primarily consists of quotations taken from famous figures within each tradition, with short connecting passages written by Huxley.Random House of Canada is proud to bring you classic works of literature in ebook form, with the highest quality production values.

His presence in their midst forces others to question these same values, and threatens to change their lives forever.This collection also includes Brave New World Revisited, an essay written by Huxley almost 30 years after Brave New World was published, examining the ways in which the future he imagined became reality, and what could be done to stop it.

Aldous Leonard Huxley was born on July 26th at Godalming, Surrey. His mother (a niece to poet Matthew Arnold) died when he was 14, shortly thereafter he suffered an outbreak of keratitis punctata which left him almost blind for two years. With the outbreak of war he volunteered for service but was rejected on health grounds: he was half-blind in one eye. Once his eyesight recovered sufficiently, he was able to study English literature at Balliol College, Oxford. In 1916 he edited Oxford Poetry and later graduated (B.A.) with first class honours. His brother Julian wrote, "e;I believe his blindness was a blessing in disguise. He was able to take all knowledge for his province"e;. Looking at his intellectual output and the regard in which he is held it is easy to see that his talents were vast and wide ranging. Across novels with such iconic books as Brave New World, poetry and essays his talents keep to a unique and uniformly high standard. Here we publish The Defeat Of Youth and Other Poems.

Brave New World Revisited

Brave New World Revisited

Author: Aldous Huxley Format: eBook Release Date: 01/01/2014

When Aldous Huxley wrote his famous novel Brave New World, he did so with the sincere belief that the dystopian world he created was a true possibility given the direction of the social, political and economic world order. Written almost thirty years later, Brave New World Revisited is a re-evaluation of his predictions based on the changes he had witnessed in the meantime. In this twelve-part essay, Huxley argues that society is moving toward his dystopian vision even faster than he had originally assumed, and provides his own suggestions on how to bring an end to this decadent decline.Brave New World Revisited condemns symptoms of modern life such as overpopulation, propaganda and extreme government control while providing a staunch defence of individualism. Despite being published over fifty years ago, the problems identified in Brave New World Revisited are still startlingly relevant, lending a chilling creditability to Aldous Huxleys unsettling predictions.

Ends and Means An Inquiry into the Nature of Ideals

Ends and Means An Inquiry into the Nature of Ideals

Author: Aldous Huxley Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/04/2012

Contemporary intellectuals still struggle over the relationship of ends to means, especially in political discourse. Pacifism is still an important topic today, as terrorism and dictatorial states abound. Many will find solace in Ends and Means, while others will find the book only a case study of the relationship of ethics to politics. Aldous Huxley examines common issues in a unique fashion. How can the regression in charity through which we are living, and for which each one of us is in some measure responsible, be halted and reversed? How can existing society be transformed into the ideal society described by the prophets? How can the average sensual man and the exceptional (and more dangerous) ambitious man be transformed into a non-attached being, one who can create a society significantly better than our own? Huxley discusses the relationship between the theories and the practices of reformers and the nature of the universe. He argues that our beliefs about the ultimate nature of reality help us formulate conceptions of right and wrong, not only in our private life, but also in the sphere of politics and economics. Far from being irrelevant, our philosophical beliefs are the final determining factor in our actions. This provocative classic volume, now available in paperback, will continue to stimulate discussion and thought.

Now More Than Ever

Now More Than Ever

Author: Aldous Huxley, David Bradshaw Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/03/2011

Over the course of his career, British writer Aldous Huxley (1894-1963) shifted away from elitist social satires and an atheistic outlook toward greater concern for the masses and the use of religious terms and imagery. This change in Huxley's thinking underlies the previously unpublished play Now More Than Ever. Written in 1932-1933 just after Brave New World, Now More Than Ever is a response to the social, economic, and political upheavals of its time. Huxley's protagonist is an idealistic financier whose grandiose schemes for controlling the means of production drive him to swindling and finally to suicide. His fate allows Huxley to expose the evils he perceives in free-market capitalism while pleading the case for national economic planning and the rationalization of Britain's industrial base. This volume contains the full text of Now More Than Ever, which was believed to be lost until 1976, when a copy was found at the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center of the University of Texas at Austin. A thinker's play that has never been produced on stage, it is the last previously unpublished piece of Huxley's major writings and immensely important to understanding his development as a writer. The editors of this volume have annotated the play for contemporary readers. Their introduction sets the play in the context of Huxley's intellectual life.

The Crows of Pearblossom tells the story of Mr. and Mrs. Crow, who live in a cotton-wood tree at Pearblossom, California. Due to a hungry Rattlesnake living at the bottom of the tree, Mrs. Crow's eggs disappear before they hatch. After catching the snake eating her 297th egg that year (she does not work on Sundays), Mrs. Crow tells Mr. Crow go and kill the snake. Thinking better of it, Mr. Crow confers with his wise friend, Old Man Owl. Owl bakes mud into two stone eggs and paints them to resemble Mrs. Crows eggs. These dummy eggs are left in the nest to trick the Rattlesnake, who unwisely eats them the next day, causing the Rattlesnake such pain, that he thrashes about, tying himself in knots around the branches. Mrs. Crow goes on to hatch four families of seventeen children each and uses the snake as a clothesline on which to hang the little crows' diapers.

Theodore Gumbril, a mild young Oxford tutor, has become thoroughly dismayed by the formality of college life and the staid British institutions of learning. An impetuous need for celebration, even rebellion, possesses him. He and his bohemian companions embark on wild and daring bacchanalian adventures that steer them resolutely away from stifling conventions of behavior, charging them for the first time with an exuberant vitality and lust for life. A sardonic and outspoken novel, Antic Hay unfolds its polemical theme against the backdrop of London's postwar nihilistic bohemia. This is Huxley at his biting, brilliant best-a novel charged with excitement and loud with satiric laughter at conventional morality and stuffy people everywhere.

One of the greatest prose writers and social commentators of the twentieth century, Aldous Huxley here introduces us to a delightfully cynical, comic, and severe group of artists and intellectuals engaged in the most freethinking and modern kind of talk imaginable. Poetry, occultism, ancestral history, and Italian primitive painting are just a few of the subjects competing for discussion among the amiable cast of eccentrics drawn together at Crome, an intensely English country manor. When the quirky group has gathered for the house party, Henry Wimbush, the owner and self-appointed historian of the estate, relates Crome's history; apocalypse is prophesied, and a young, sensitive poet suffers from unrequited love. This stunning satire of the fads and fashions of the time is not to be missed.

The life of Father Joseph, Cardinal Richelieu's aide, was a shocking paradox. After spending his days directing operations on the battlefield, Father Joseph would pass the night in prayer, or in composing spiritual guidance for the nuns in his care. He was an aspirant to sainthood and a practising mystic, yet his ruthless exercise of power succeeded in prolonging the unspeakable horrors of the Thirty Years War. In his masterful biography, Huxley explores how an intensely religious man could lead such a life and how he could reconcile the seemingly opposing moral systems of religion and politics.

WITH A FOREWORD J.G. BALLARD In 1953, in the presence of an investigator, Aldous Huxley took four-tenths of a gramme of mescalin, sat down and waited to see what would happen. When he opened his eyes everything, from the flowers in a vase to the creases in his trousers, was transformed. Huxley described his experience with breathtaking immediacy in The Doors of Perception. In its sequel Heaven and Hell, he goes on to explore the history and nature of mysticism. Still bristling with a sense of excitement and discovery, these illuminating and influential writings remain the most fascinating account of the visionary experience ever written.

This third volume (including the years 1930-1935) of a projected six reinforces Huxley's stature as one of the most acute and informed observers of the social and ideological trends of the years between the world wars. These essays register his growing ambivalence about the role of technocracy and science in an era of experimentation in the concentration of executive and legislative power. He was among the few writers who...played with ideas so freely, so gaily, with such virtuosity, that the responsive reader...was dazzled and excited. -Isaiah Berlin. Commendable. -Times Literary Supplement. A remarkable publishing event...beautifully produced and authoritatively edited. -Jeffrey Hart, Washington Times. Edited with Commentary by Robert S. Baker and James Sexton.

Young Archimedes and Other Stories

Young Archimedes and Other Stories

Author: Aldous Huxley Format: Hardback Release Date: 31/10/2000

In these semi-autobiographical stories, Huxley discourses on life and death, accident and necessity, natives and foreigners. They show Huxley in his most pensive mood, far removed from the didatic counter-utopianism with which he is often identified. Young Archimedes takes place in Italy. The story starts as a test in aesthetic sensibilities, between natives and visitors. Guido's musical predilections, his precocity, was more rooted in Archimedes than in Mozart. But the nature of his unusual talents was never quite understood. In contrast, the young English boy, the counterpart, is ordinary to a fault. What happens is a chilling example of a child pushed beyond his limits by well-intentioned parents. In Little Mexican, the English visitor learns that life beyond the university is emancipation not just in the literature of Mallarm and the philosophy of Nietzsche, but in the sensual ways of the world itself. Emancipation is in the life of love, and in the struggle to remain young. Fard, Hubert and Minnie, and The Portrait take place in France and England, with their themes of unrequited love, affection between lovers of different nations, and social standing.

These first two volumes of a projected five, in preparation for several years, begin a major publishing venture, collecting the complete essays of one of the giants of modern English prose and of social commentary in our time. The first two volumes span the most productive period of Huxley's career. Volume I begins with his essays for Gilbert Murray's Athenaeum and his music essays for the New Westminster Gazette. Volume II continues through the 1920s and includes his controversial essays on India and the empire in Jesting Pilate. The essays of both volumes range from nuanced assessments of art and architecture to political analyses, history, science, religion, and art, and a newly discovered series on music. Wide-ranging, allusive, and witty, they are informed by the probing skepticism of a highly educated and ironically incisive member of the English upper middle class. Huxley's fascination with the codes and conventions of European culture, his growing apprehensions about the menacing collapse of the European political order, and his awareness of the impact of science and technology on the post-Versailles world of England, France, Germany, and the United States form the basis for his critique. His subjects overlap with the satirical novels he wrote during the period between the wars, culminating in Point Counter Point and Brave New World. At their best, these essays stand among the finest examples of the genre in modern literature.

Moksha Aldous Huxley's Classic Writings on Psychedelics and the Visionary Experience

Moksha Aldous Huxley's Classic Writings on Psychedelics and the Visionary Experience

Author: Aldous Huxley Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/04/1999

In May 1953 Aldous Huxley took four-tenths of a gram of mescaline. The mystical and transcendent experience that followed set him off on an exploration that was to produce a revolutionary body of work about the inner reaches of the human mind. Huxley was decades ahead of his time in his anticipation of the dangers modern culture was creating through explosive population increase, headlong technological advance, and militant nationalism, and he saw psychedelics as the greatest means at our disposal to remind adults that the real world is very different from the misshapen universe they have created for themselves by means of their culture-conditioned prejudices. Much of Huxley's writings following his 1953 mescaline experiment can be seen as his attempt to reveal the power of these substances to awaken a sense of the sacred in people living in a technological society hostile to mystical revelations. Moksha, a Sanskrit word meaning liberation, is a collection of the prophetic and visionary writings of Aldous Huxley. It includes selections from his acclaimed novels Brave New Worldand Island, both of which envision societies centered around the use of psychedelics as stabilizing forces, as well as pieces from The Doors of Perceptionand Heaven and Hell, his famous works on consciousness expansion.
