WORLD - Brave New World is a novel written by Aldous Huxley set in London of 632 A.F. - "After Ford"
- the novel anticipates reproductive technology, sleep-learning, psychological manipulation, biological manipulation, and predetermination conditioning.
- it's a world where "perfection" is taken into a whole new level - The Tempest is thought by many people to be William Shakespeare's swan song
- It was the last play he wrote
- In the play, character Miranda says the quote
"How many godly creaters are there here, how beautious mankind is! Oh brave new world that has such people in it!" BRAVE
WORLD VS. THE
TEMPEST - When naming his novel, Huxley is being ironic with placing the title of "brave new world". He is being ironic because the society described in the novel does not live up to the title of being a "brave new world that has such people in it".
- Furthermore, it allows Huxley to connect the two stories together and highlight the issues of "civilization vs. 'savagery" that dominates in both texts and also helps us to draw similarities between characters such as the savage Caliban in "The Tempest" and John the Savage in "Brave New World."
- In The Tempest, Miranda communicates an awe and joy at the opening of the new world and its possibilities. However, John the Savage's experience of the new world is quite the opposite - he starts out optimistic but by the end he is disgusted and repulsed by the world he has been brought into.
- In conclusion, "How many godly creaters are there here, how beautious mankind is! Oh brave new world that has such people in it!"
is a quote along with other Shakespearian quotes that are referred to many times thoughout the novel. How are they related? What the class should write down onto
