Romeo and Juliet

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Brave New World Aldous Huxley Chapter 1 - Quotes "A squat grey building of only thirty-four stories" pg.1 This is the opening line of the novel and it paints a picture of what the city is like. It is grey meaning there is no life and individuality, it is quite dull and that the building being "only" thirty-four stories high indicates that it is a smaller building compared to those that surround it and that this world is dissimilar to what we have at present. "Community, Identity, Stability" pg.1 This is the motto of this brave new world. Community through one another working hand in hand and applying themselves fully at whatever job they have been assigned to undergo. Identity of each human being known as either an Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Deltas or Epsilon. And finally, stability within the brave new world through each type of human knowing their role within the process and that there will be no unhappiness within the humans. "Cold for all the summers beyond the panes, for all the tropical heat of the room itself" pg.1 Here we see the artificial nature of the brave new world. There is no heat emitted throughout highlighting the fact that the humans in the world are somewhat artificial too. The rooms are not heated through a natural process although it is all done through machinery and if not even summer would be a cold season. "Hands gloved with a pale corpse-coloured rubber. The light frozen, dead, a ghost." pg.1 This provides another insight into the world which has been created through the various processes and techniques that have been implemented in the brave new world. It shows that there is no uniqueness within the community and that everyone is if they are dead and that they is no actual life. "For particulars, as everyone knows, make for virtue and happiness; generalities are intellectually necessary evils" pg.2 This shows that everybody within the brave new world has been made for a singular purpose and that they can only fulfill that purpose. ...read more.

Middle

She is an object of desire for a number of major and minor characters, including Bernard Marx and John. Her behavior is sometimes intriguingly unorthodox, which makes her attractive to the reader. "Home, home - a few small rooms, stiflingly over-inhabited by a man, by a periodically teeming woman, by a rabble of boys and girls of all ages. No air, no space; an under sterilized prison; darkness, disease and smells" pg.31 This quote describes the living areas of the people within brave new world. They are not given much although they are conditioned to feel happy about what they have and they do not complain despite the fact that they are living with a large number of male and females as well as boys and girls in little space which teems full of diseases and unpleasant smells. "'Dr. Wells advised me to have a Pregnancy Substitute.'" pg.32 This is Lenina Crowne talking, where she says that she is having a pregnancy substitute a process Since there is no live birth or pregnancy, only decanting, it is suggested that women take a pregnancy substitute, which lasts several months. The procedure is not described in detail. It is compulsory at age twenty-one, but some women have it as early as seventeen. "'But everyone belongs to everyone else," pg.34 Through everyone belonging to everyone else, there is no need for marriage, is no need for love or no need for reproduction between the opposite sexes. This allows for the Bokanovsky's process to rise and continue to taken over the brave new world. This also means that there will be 'stability' which is essentially what is being wanted in this society and by everyone just as similar as the next and no connection between anyone it can be upheld. "No wonder those poor pre-moderns were mad and wicked and miserable...they were not conditioned to obey...they were forced to feel strongly" pg.35 Here we see that there is a shift in time and that before Ford, people who ...read more.

Conclusion

Everyone did not like him for who is was and acted as if he belonged to someone else all because of his skin colour. "Linda and he were strangers in the Reservation" pg.101 Linda and her son came from the Other Place and so feel and were treated like they were not part of the group of the Reservation and that they were foreigners. Not only did they feel like they were not accepted they actually were not. "Front teeth were missing...so fat...flabbiness, the wrinkles. And the sagging cheeks wit those purplish blotches. And under the brown sack-shaped tunic those enormous breasts." pg.102 In the brave new world everything is conditioned so that everyone can be kept at the same age and has the same metabolism although in the normal world they is no conditioning or mass production of babies. This is why when they saw this lady who was not beautiful and had many problems Lenina shuddered because she had never seen someone so ugly. "But it's all different here; it's like living with lunatics. Everything they do is mad" pg.104 Here we see that see does not like living in the normal world outside from the brave new world as there is no conditioning and that there is room for improvement and never being happy with what one has. We also see that she is described our everyday lives of where there is no conditioning and that there are lunatics and everything is mad compared to the brave new world. "So they're having children all the time - like dogs...And yet John was a great comfort to me...It wasn't my business to know" pg.105 He we see that she has a child and in the brave new world they produce children on a mass scale, in a way just like dogs or animals do. Even though she does not like living in the world outside of the brave new world her child provided a lot of comfort and was different compared to that of the everyday world which is conditioned to perfection. ...read more.
