Overview

• The book is an edited and illustrated version of the original one and includes 18 or more unique illustrations which are relevant to its content.
• Aldous Huxley was born on 26th July 1894 near Godalming, Surrey. He began writing poetry and short stories in his early twenties, but it was his first novel, ’Crome Yellow’ (1921), which established his literary reputation. This was swiftly followed by ’Antic Hay’ (1923), ’Those Barren Leaves’ (1925) and ’Point Counter Point’ (1928) - bright, brilliant satires in which Huxley wittily but ruthlessly passed judgement on the shortcomings of contemporary society. For most of the 1920s Huxley lived in Italy and an account of his experiences there can be found in ’Along The Road’ (1925).

By the end of his life, Huxley was widely acknowledged as one of the preeminent intellectuals of his era and was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature in seven separate years.

Crome Yellow (Barnes & Noble Library of Essential Reading) 2.8 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 18 reviews.
TheIntelligentShadeOfBlue More than 1 year ago
Crome Yellow, set in England in the 1920s, chronologues the fictitious summer holiday of Denis, a young, educated British poet, at the small town of Crome. The book lacks in sensory appeal, and could do with much better character development. That having been said, the book repeatedly appeals to and entertains the mind with its infusions of poetry, philosophy, and oblique examinations of social processes. This book lacks the compelling storytelling and vivid imagination of Brave New World, but is nonetheless a good offering for a first full-length novel.

A very good scan of this book. Very well-written even though it was his first book. A classic.
