    15. 15. Summary Chapter 4 { Brave New World, Albert Serrat
    16. 16.  Lenina and Bernard, are planning a trip to a savage reservation in New Mexico, where people live like in the old days. Bernard is a psychologist but although he’s a important man in the ideal society, he feels an outsider because he is different from the other Alpha+, he’s shorter than them.
    17. 17.  After this, Bernard talks with a man called Benito Hoover. Benito is a very kind man and he offers some soma to Bernard, as he noticed he feels sad. Soma is a substance that people take to feel better, which has no side effects. Bernard gets annoyed an refuses it.
    18. 18.  Then Bernard, meets his good friend, Helmholtz Watson , who feels an outsider, like Bernard, and feels that he has some ideas , which he doesn’t know how to write with the exact words . While they’re talking, Bernard feels as if someone is listening to them, but when Helmholtz opens the door of the apartment there’s no one there.
    19. 19. Chapter 5•Death is important for society.•Each class member is happy to belong tothat class, and does not want to be inanother.•Soma is used to overcome any shock. Itdoes not solve the problems but hidesthem in sleep and unconsciousness.•Everybody does what society wants, evenif that is not exactly what they want. Theirliberty is conformity.•Solidarity Service.
    20. 20. Chapter 6•Everything must be public. There are no secretsbecause if somebody does something secretly it isnot shareable and therefore he has done nothing:“That mania for doing things in private. Which meant,in practice, not doing anything at all”•History loses its meaning. All that comes from thepast is negative.•Conditioning:–Conditioned characters: Loss of identity, repetitivebehaviour–Non conditioned characters: Dynamic, creative•Mental development has been kept at a childishlevel•Superficial and brief relationships- total dominionover emotions•Map of New Mexico•The reserve:–images–comparison with a Lager

    29. 29.

    33. 33. Chapter 9 In chapter nine Bernard, John, Linda and Lenina is back in London after being in the savage territory. Lenina, who found the territory very disturbing, takes Soma that will make her sleep for at least 18 hours. So she has gone on Soma holiday. Bernard can´t seem to go to sleep and in the morning he decides to go to Santa Fé and get the business and information done about his guests that he brought withhim. He there speaks to Mustapha Mond about why these people are soimportant to research. Mond agrees with Bernard and send him away to the Warden of the Reservation office where he get the papers about Linda and John.
    34. 34. John who is new in the “other” world somehow gets the feeling thathehas been left by Bernard and Lenina and breaks down. But he getsbackup and goes into the room where Lenina is taking her holiday. Henowgets these sexual feelings about her. He goes through her clothesandlooks at the zippers of different items of clothes. She is layingthere on the bed and he starts looking at her.He is reciting pieces from Shakespeares Romeo and Juliet abouthowher hands, lips and body looks like laying there. He is struggling toprevent himself from touching her but comes to senses when herealisesthat it would defile her. As this is happening Bernards helicopter isarriving back and John feels even more guilty and runs away andhides.In this part of the book John is introduced for the first time totheir world, which of course is overwhelming for him. He is quiteamazed by their world, thinking about it as a utopia, seeing the bestparts about it, and not everything else.
    35. 35. In this chapter morale is important. You can notice it when John isabout to touch Lenina. But he comes to his senses and changes hismind. This is because he doesn’t want to defile her. This has to dowith morale and with what is right and wrong. What becomesincreasingly clear, is how different the two worlds are, since Johnstruggles NOT to touch her, and anyone else would have felt that theyshould do it.The question is whether you are happier doing things in a slowrestricted way or in a fast, non-private way.
    36. 36. Chapter 10 In chapter ten we get to go back to the factory where all the babies are being produced. The director who has decided that Bernard is to be sent to Iceland has arranged a meeting with Bernard in the Fertilizingroom. He has decided to send him away because of his behaviour and his way of going against ford and society. He describes it as “Sacrificing one individual for the greater good of the society is no great loss since the Hatchery can churn out dozens of new babies.” When Bernard arrives the director gets the attention from everyone in the room. He then speaks openly to the Bernard colleges about why and where he is being sent away. Bernard gets one chance to say why he should stay it he takes it. He then brings in Linda and to the people in the room this is a frightening experience. Linda who looks dirty and has a crooked smile and doesn’t fit into their society terrifies them. Linda who’s had a baby with the director openly says this so everyone can hear, making them very interested since the director has broken an important rule in fathering a child. He denies this of course in front of everybody but John comes in and shouts “My father”. Everybody else in the room is now laughing about the humiliation and it’s too much for the director and he runs out with his hands pressed against his ears.
    37. 37. Here there are both utopia and dystopia events. They sort of go intotogether here. Because the Director sees his purpose of keeping theperfection that is in London. He sees that the best way of doing thatis to send away Bernard and then making sure that his idéas of what isright and wrong doesnt spread on to others. So here we get a glimpseof how the world should be Utopia. But we also get another view whenLinda and John comes in. Because we now get to see what could go wrongwith the way they are living. This is what frightens the staff in thefertilizing room. You get to see how fragile the world of ford is.
