Fore 1 Daniel E. Fore Eva F. Glamser AP English 4 15 February 2007 Satire in Brave New World Not only is Brave New World an excellent illustration of fictional writing, but a satiric strike at the twentieth-century’s society as well. Aldous Huxley satirizes the twentieth-century’s trust in technological advances, criticizes improvements in scientific progress, and passes judgment on the loss of individual freedom. To Huxley, these three societal qualities are exactly what civilization does not need. Huxley’s masterpiece, Brave New World , satirizes the twentieth-century society’s trust in technological advances (Matter 61). He further mocks this idea by creating children in factories (63) and forming a deity out of the motor manufacturer, Henry Ford. By doing so he is satirizing how society worships technological advancements. Huxley adopts the sole qualities of a machine efficiency, capability and productivity for his utopian society (Ferns 111). In Brave New World society takes the top of the Christian cross off forming a “T” to represent Henry Ford’s Model T. This shows how Huxley satirizes the high esteem given to the machine industry in twentieth century society (Matter 61). Huxley strongly suggests that society either chooses a not-so-perfect world and happiness, or the fake happiness of the future world to come (Kass 51).

    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.
