Summary Of Brave New World This futuristic novel, set in 2540 AD (632 AF according to the book), visualizes a world where sleep-learning and a technological way of reproduction has taken over. Though it’s set in the future, Aldous Huxley explores the existent issues of the 20th century through the book, such as the Industrial Revolution, the Russian Revolution, and the First World War. Aldous Huxley writes about a world where a greater part of the population has combined to become the World State. The state has a permanent population of two billion people. And while the State’s populace is restricted, its wealth and products are plentiful. The society is divided into five castes: alpha, beta, gamma, delta, and epsilon. The five castes are designated to fulfill predestined positions in the State’s socio-economical divisions, with alpha caste being the best. Huxley then goes on to describe the State’s society as one that has no moral values; here, recreational sex is encouraged from a tender age, whereas love, family, and romance are considered obscene. Children are produced technologically through ‘decanting’, and they are born and raised in hatcheries. After providing a horrifying description about the World State, Huxley goes on to narrate the story of John the Savage. John is an outsider, a child born from parents raised in the State. He returns to the place of his parents only to find that he cannot adjust with it. He is repelled by everything that is happening within the State as it goes against his ideals. Aldous Huxley has indeed written this dystopian work wonderfully. The book, which is meant to be a parody of the then-popular Utopian futuristic works, is well-written and has ushered in lots of praise from critics..
