Brave New World

Chapters 11 - 12


Poor dhc

Poor DHC!

  • He resigns in shame.

  • We also experience the irony of Linda’s name and of her desire to return to the World State.

  • Meaning of “Linda?”

  • How does Linda cope with reentry into the WS?

  • Jump to pg. 155 – paragraph that begins “In the end…”

  • What is Huxley doing with language here?Adverbial clauses.

  • For what effect?


Bernard finally finds himself treated as a man of importance pgs 156 157

Bernard finally finds himself treated as a man of importance… pgs. 156 - 157

  • What effect does this have on him?

  • What is his “soma?”

  • This reconciles him with the world which, until then, he had found unsatisfactory.

  • If we ever wondered if Bernard would lead the uprising, we now know this will not happen.

  • Jump to page 159 – 160.

  • What does Huxley do to get us to buy the Savage’s revulsion with the citizens of the World State?


Chapter 12

Chapter 12

  • Function of chapter…

    • John has reached his breaking point

      • This mirrors Bernard being forcing him to visit the Reservation for humanity

    • John makes a final rejection of the W.S. as he reclaims his native language


John and helmholtz are friends

John and Helmholtz are friends…

  • This friendship increases Bernard’s resentment and jealousy

    • It also brings out the worst of Bernard’s immaturity

  • Unfortunately, it is ultimately another example of a failed connection

    • R&J contains themes that are too human for Helmholtz

      • Meaningful relationships, marriage, and burial are too much for him to accept and understand

      • John’s last resort is exhausted.

  • MADNESS AND VIOLENCE

    • Helmholtz wants to find these things in the W.S.

    • Result = John has no worldin which he feels comfortable


Huxley s claim

Huxley’s claim

  • One could view BNW as an argument, as all satire can be viewed. Jump to page 177.

  • What, in Huxley’s opinion, is happiness?
