After the publication of  Brave New World , Huxley left England, living with his wife, Maria, first in New  Mexico — the site of the Savage Reservation in  Brave New World  — and later in California, where  surgery restored much of his vision. In his new home, Huxley became involved in the study and practice of mysticism. His new  philosophical outlook informed his novel  Eyeless in Gaza  (1936), which promoted pacifism on the  eve of World War II.  After Many a Summer Dies the Swan  (1939) makes the case for the emptiness  of materialism. Gradually, Huxley moved toward mystical writings, far from the tone of his early satire.  The Perennial Philosophy  (1945) and  The Doors of Perception  (1954) represent Huxley's non- fictional expression of his interests, including even experimentation with psychedelic drugs.

    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.
