Brave new world

  1. 1. BRAVE NEW WORLD <ul><li>At the beginning of the story we find a group of students visiting a centre where babies are produced. </li></ul><ul><li>The director of the centre explains them the scientific process by which human beings are fertilized and custom made. </li></ul><ul><li>The new society is based on serial production: human beings are produced in factories just like cars; there are no more family relationships and human feelings. </li></ul>
  2. 2. <ul><li>In this world, human beings are divided into four castes: </li></ul><ul><li>Alphas (grey) , the most clever, are the leaders; </li></ul><ul><li>Betas (purple) are created for positions which require high intelligence; </li></ul><ul><li>Gammas (green) and Deltas (kaki) are destined for jobs which require less intelligence and in the last there are </li></ul><ul><li>Epsylons (black) employed in repetitive tasks that don’t require much intelligence. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Individuality is not important and is not allowed; massification is at the base of this society. </li></ul><ul><li>This form of government is very much like totalitarism regime: culture is controlled, books are forbidden and so on. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>In the second part of the novel the author talks about an area which has remained untouched by this new society: it is set in New Mexico. Here old values and freedom are kept alive. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>The main character of this second part is the Savage: he lives alone like a hermit in a lighthouse and he looks for God and poetry. But he realises he will never have the freedom he’s longing for and at the end he hangs himself. </li></ul>
