Brave New World

Brave New World is Aldous Huxley's fifth novel, written in 1931 and published in 1932. Set in London of AD 2540 (632 A.F. in the book), the novel anticipates developments in reproductive technology and sleep-learning that combine to change society. Brave New World's ironic title derives from Miranda's speech in Shakespeare's The Tempest, Act V, Scene I, and the book is a satiric critic to the Utopia.
