Though Brave New World, was published less than a century ago in 1932, many elements of the novels dystopic future now seem an eerily familiar part of life in the 21st century. These essays reiterate the influence of Brave New World as a literary and philosophical document and describe how Huxley forecast the problems of late capitalism. Topics include the anti-utopian ideals represented by Brave New Worlds rigid caste system, the novels influence on the philosophy of culture industry philosophers Max Horkheimer and Theodor Adorno, the Nietzschean birth of tragedy in the novels penultimate scene, and the relationship of the novel to other dystopian works including Ralph Ellisons Invisible Man and George Orwells Nineteen Eighty-Four.
