Reader's note

This fantasy of the future is one of Aldous Huxley’s best known books. Its impact on the modern world has been considerable. Abandoning his mordant criticism of modern men and morals, the author switches to the future and shows us life as he conceives it may be some thousands of years hence. Written in the thirties when - whatever the immediate out-look may have been - people believed that ultimately all would be for the best in the bst of all possible worlds, the novel is a warning against such optimism. With irrepressible wit and raillery, Huxley satirizes the idea of progress put forward by the scientists and philosophers; and his world of test-tube babies and ‘feelies’ is uncomfortably closer now than it was when the book was first published.
