She remembers that he is particularly hairy when he takes his clothes off. His plans take an unexpected turn, however, when Bernard returns from the Reservation with Linda see below and John, a child they both realize is actually his.
This fact, scandalous and obscene in the World State not because it was extramarital which all sexual acts are but because it was procreative, leads the Director to resign his post in shame. Linda , John's mother, decanted as a Beta-Minus in the World State, originally worked in the DHC's hero Room, and subsequently lost during a storm while visiting the New Mexico Savage Reservation with the Director many years before the events of the novel.
Despite following her usual precautions, Linda became pregnant with the Director's son during their time together and was therefore unable to return to the World State by the time that she found her way to Malpais.
Having been conditioned to the promiscuous social norms of the World State, Linda finds herself at once popular with every man in the pueblo because she is open to all sexual advances and also reviled for the same reason, seen as a whore by the wives of the men who visit her and by the men themselves who come to her nonetheless.
Linda is desperate to return to the World State and to soma, wanting nothing more from her remaining life than comfort until death. He takes personal offense when John refuses to attend Bernard's party. The Director of Crematoria and Phosphorus Reclamation , one of the many disappointed, important figures to attend Bernard's party.
He is blond, short, broad-shouldered, and has a booming voice. Darwin Bonaparte , a "big game photographer" i. Darwin Bonaparte is known for two other works: "feely of the gorillas' wedding",  and "Sperm Whale's Love-life". He renews his fame by filming the savage, John, in his newest release "The Savage of Surrey". Shaw , Bernard Marx's physician who consequently becomes the physician of both Linda and John. He prescribes a lethal dose of soma to Linda, which will stop her respiratory system from functioning in a span of one to two months, at her own behest but not without protest from John.
Ultimately, they all agree that it is for the best, since denying her this request would cause more trouble for Society and Linda herself. Gaffney , Provost of Eton, an Upper School for high-caste individuals. These are non-fictional and factual characters who lived before the events in this book, but are of note in the novel:.
The limited number of names that the World State assigned to its bottle-grown citizens can be traced to political and cultural figures who contributed to the bureaucratic, economic, and technological systems of Huxley's age, and presumably those systems in Brave New World. Huxley's remarkable book",  and Bertrand Russell also praised it, stating, "Mr. Aldous Huxley has shown his usual masterly skill in Brave New World.
However, Brave New World also received negative responses from other contemporary critics, although his work was later embraced. Chesterton explained that Huxley was revolting against the "Age of Utopias". Much of the discourse on man's future before was based on the thesis that humanity would solve all economic and social issues. In the decade following the war the discourse shifted to an examination of the causes of the catastrophe.
The works of H. Wells and George Bernard Shaw on the promises of socialism and a World State were then viewed as the ideas of naive optimists. Chesterton wrote:. Men like Ford or Mond seemed to many to have solved the social riddle and made capitalism the common good. But it was not native to us; it went with a buoyant, not to say blatant optimism, which is not our negligent or negative optimism. Much more than Victorian righteousness, or even Victorian self-righteousness, that optimism has driven people into pessimism.
For the Slump brought even more disillusionment than the War. A new bitterness, and a new bewilderment, ran through all social life, and was reflected in all literature and art. It was contemptuous, not only of the old Capitalism, but of the old Socialism. Brave New World is more of a revolution against Utopia than against Victoria. Similarly, in economist Ludwig von Mises described Brave New World as a satire of utopian predictions of socialism : "Aldous Huxley was even courageous enough to make socialism's dreamed paradise the target of his sardonic irony.
The World State is built upon the principles of Henry Ford 's assembly line : mass production, homogeneity, predictability, and consumption of disposable consumer goods. While the World State lacks any supernatural-based religions, Ford himself is revered as the creator of their society but not as a deity, and characters celebrate Ford Day and swear oaths by his name e. In this sense, some fragments of traditional religion are present, such as Christian crosses, which had their tops cut off to be changed to a "T", representing the Ford Model T.
Any residual unhappiness is resolved by an antidepressant and hallucinogenic drug called soma. The biological techniques used to control the populace in Brave New World do not include genetic engineering ; Huxley wrote the book before the structure of DNA was known. However, Gregor Mendel 's work with inheritance patterns in peas had been rediscovered in and the eugenics movement, based on artificial selection , was well established.
Huxley's family included a number of prominent biologists including Thomas Huxley , half-brother and Nobel Laureate Andrew Huxley , and his brother Julian Huxley who was a biologist and involved in the eugenics movement.
Nonetheless, Huxley emphasises conditioning over breeding nurture versus nature ; human embryos and fetuses are conditioned through a carefully designed regimen of chemical such as exposure to hormones and toxins , thermal exposure to intense heat or cold, as one's future career would dictate , and other environmental stimuli, although there is an element of selective breeding as well.
Bodies of research in biology, physiology and psychology of the 20th and 21st century exploring the effects of infant conditioning through Prenatal Alcohol Exposure PAE and the subsequent Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder FASD individuals has proven that merely encouraging women to consume alcohol has yielded the results sought by the Director of the Hatcheries and Conditioning: freemartins and social predestination.
In lieu of hatchery employees of Brave New World adding the alcohol to test tubes, simply encouraging a culture of alcohol use in women has notably similar results. In Brave New World , the World State has no use for scientific discoveries that would be potentially subversive to its ethos that celebrates "Community, Identity, Stability.
Yes, even science. The Savage frowned. He knew the word. But what it exactly signified he could not say. Shakespeare and the old men of the pueblo had never mentioned science, and from Linda he had only gathered the vaguest hints: science was something you made helicopters with, some thing that caused you to laugh at the Corn Dances, something that prevented you from being wrinkled and losing your teeth.
He made a desperate effort to take the Controller's meaning. It isn't only art that's incompatible with happiness; it's also science. Science is dangerous; we have to keep it most carefully chained and muzzled. I was a pretty good physicist in my time. Too good—good enough to realize that all our science is just a cookery book, with an orthodox theory of cooking that nobody's allowed to question, and a list of recipes that mustn't be added to except by special permission from the head cook.
I'm the head cook now. But I was an inquisitive young scullion once. I started doing a bit of cooking on my own. Unorthodox cooking, illicit cooking. A bit of real science, in fact. The Controller sighed. I was on the point of being sent to an island. In a letter to George Orwell about Nineteen Eighty-Four , Huxley wrote 'Whether in actual fact the policy of the boot-on-the-face can go on indefinitely seems doubtful.
My own belief is that the ruling oligarchy will find less arduous and wasteful ways of governing and of satisfying its lust for power, and these ways will resemble those which I described in Brave New World'.
He writes:. What Orwell feared were those who would ban books. What Huxley feared was that there would be no reason to ban a book, for there would be no one who wanted to read one.
Orwell feared those who would deprive us of information. Huxley feared those who would give us so much that we would be reduced to passivity and egoism.
Orwell feared that the truth would be concealed from us. Huxley feared the truth would be drowned in a sea of irrelevance. Orwell feared we would become a captive culture. Huxley feared we would become a trivial culture, preoccupied with some equivalent of the feelies, the orgy porgy, and the centrifugal bumblepuppy. Rate this season Oof, that was Rotten.

Jessica Brown Findlay Lenina Crowne. Lloyd, especially early on, is given a difficult juggling act in terms of what makes Bernard tick: Is he bored with the good life? Does he fear anything else? Has he been too often rewarded for playing by the rules to ever truly break them? Both actors carry moments of intense drama and outlandish comedy with an arresting fluidity, which helps make the whole first season go down smooth. Still, Season 1 is an emotionally intelligent thriller, and it looks damn good to boot.
Sep 15, Unlike his fellow citizens, Huxley felt that such a reliance was naive, and Brave New World decided to challenge these ideas by imagining them taken to their extremes.
