Brave New World Revisited

Brave New World Revisited by Aldous Huxley is a nonfiction piece written twenty-seven years after his original novel Brave New World, and takes a look at just how accurate his vision of the future was. Several times Huxley references George Orwell’s 1984 in comparing their two totalitarian future worlds, but his tone doesn’t come across as impartial. In fact, the ego stroking Huxley provides himself is often tedious, and facts he provides come across more like opinions. Insights that the author provides about where he got some of his inspiration and the research he based some of his concepts on is by far the most interesting aspect of this entire short piece.
