Overview

Published in 1896, between "The Time Machine" and "The Invisible Man", The Island of Dr. Moreau is one of the most disturbing novels in modern literature, fully inscribed in the criticism and ominous intuition that H.G. Wells (1866-1946) from a very early age housed the course of the society in which he lived. The island that gives its name to the story and the sinister events of which it is the scene are, in effect, a disturbing parable about the dark side of science and also a grim exploration of the essence and limits of human nature.

About the Author

H.G. Wells (1866-1946) published his first novel, The Time Machine, to critical and popular acclaim in 1895. Socially progressive and visionary in intellect, he became one of the most prolific writers of his generation. Through books like The Invisible Man and War of the Worlds, he explored a wide variety of social, philosophical, and political ideas through the medium of what we now call science fiction.
