Preamble: In chapters 16 and 17 of Brave New World, Huxley utilizes his characters Bernard, John, Helmholtz, and Mustapha Mond as vehicles for interjecting his opinions of communism to his readers. While readers have been able to recognize isolated examples of Huxley’s interjections in previous chapters, these two chapters are almost solely comprised of his vehement appeals against what he fears to be the impending demise of “traditional” societal norms and values.
Huxley’s interjections can be categorized into five modes of appeal: religion, science, happiness, free will, and industrialization.
Directions: Copy the table below onto large chart paper(s). Use your book to find 2-3 supporting quotes for each of the five modes of appeal. These quotes should be the best examples that you can find (i.e. universal and impactful), and should also be properly cited.
