”Brave New World”
Written by Aldous Huxley
“A Brave New World” is a science fiction masterpiece written by Aldous Huxley in 1931. The story takes place in London in AD 2540. It was censored in several places in decades past because it was labeled obscene and pornographic. It has also been compared with classics such as “1984” in its portrayal of a static, dystopian society. Like George Orwell´s classic, the citizens of society of the World State are trapped in a stagnant society. They do not have the basic freedoms necessary for an individual to grow and be happy. It is a vicious society hidden behind the veneer of beauty, stupidity and soma. A strong feeling of character apathy and helplessness permeates the story and makes the characters look pathetic.
