Brave New World

             A Brave New World by Aldous Huxley was written in the 1930s during the Great Depression on the breach of World War II. He also wrote this book as a depiction if a better society than the one he was currently living in. He also wrote of scientific evolution, portraying the dangers of a world controlled by technology. A Brave New World is a novel about the struggle of Bernard Marx, who rejects the tenants of his society when he discovers that he is not truly happy. In 1984, by George Orwell, Winston finds forbidden love within the hypocriticalness of his society. In both cases, the main character is rebelling against the government. Although they dislike the government they do not take public action because they know that the consequences would be far too much for their disagreement. Despite that they both deal similar topics, both novels, A Brave New Novel and 1984, are more or less different then alike. (Barnder, Laurence).
             Aldous Huxley wrote A Brave New World in a third person point of view. He wanted to allow the reader to have a more comprehensive view on the activities he presented throughout the novel. He portrayed his characters as shallow and cartoon-like in order to reflect society better in a way, in which they were entrapped. In this society, there are traditional notions of love and what is ideally thought should come out of it. Many of the Brave New World's social norms are intended to save his citizens from anything unpleasant through depriving them of the opportunity to miss anything overly pleasant. (Barnder, Laurence).
             1984 is written in the first person point of view, partly narrated by the main characters internal dialogue. The great party leader, "Big Brother" is a fictional character who is somewhat more opposing than "Ford", the leader in A Brave New World. The main character fears Big Brother but is very much aware of his surroundings in the situation unlike the characters in A Brave New World.
