Overview

Aldous Huxley's most influential novel, Brave New World depicts the inner workings of a dystopian society. Many critics credit the bold scope of the author's vision with popularizing an interest in scientific study that extends to this day. Harold Bloom suggests in his introduction that, while the work bears the influence of the era in which it was produced, in an age of genetic engineering and virtual reality, the novel is yet more relevant than ever.

Bloom's Modern Critical Interpretations, a series of more than 100 volumes, presents the best current criticism on the most widely read and studied poems, novels, and dramas of the Western world, from Oedipus Rex and The Iliad to such modern and contemporary works as William Faulkner's The Sound and the Fury and Don DeLillo's White Noise. Each volume opens with an introductory essay and editor's note by Harold Bloom and includes a bibliography, a chronology of the writer's life and works, and notes on the contributors. Taken together, Bloom's Modern Critical Interpretations provides a comprehensive critical guide to the most vital and influential works of the Western literary tradition.
