Mariana Tamayo 9/12/18 Period 6 Brave New World: A Literary Analysis Freedom is the capability for a person to be conscious and independant enough to observe what is truly happening around them, be able to analyze it, and have a standpoint of their own. In the book there are two very different worlds; “ Brave New World”, and the “ Savage Reservation” which is where John the savage grew up in. In a way John is freer than the citizens of the world state but not completely. The citizens of the world state have been conditioned more rigorously than john has but, they both are limited to their own beliefs because of different influences. John grew up in the Savage Reservation and he is the son of two upper caste Londoners making him the only person in The Brave New World to be born naturally of a mother. John is seen as an outcast in society and was like a monkey in a zoo instead of an actual person. He’s a lost descendant of the World State since he’s not a native indian from the Savage Reservation. Physically and genetically he looks just like everyone else in the World State but since he grew up in the Savage Reservation he was able to create his own morals without the influence from the government from the World State. He was raised by prior generations since he was the cause of an unplanned pregnancy and all of his thoughts on society, morals, and values derive from the collected works of Shakespeare to the Bible to the creation myths of the Reservation to the stories he hears about the civilized world.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
