    632 après Ford : désormais on compte les années à partir de l'invention de la voiture à moteur. La technologie et la science ont remplacé la liberté et Dieu. La vie humaine, anesthésiée, est une suite de satisfactions, les êtres naissent in vitro, les désirs s'assouvissent sans risque de reproduction, les émotions et les sentiments ont été remplacés par des sensations et des instincts programmés.

    On the 75th anniversary of its publication, this outstanding work of literature is more crucial and relevant today than ever before. Cloning, feel-good drugs, anti-aging programs, and total social control through politics, programming and media: has Aldous Huxley accurately predicted our future? With a storyteller's genius, he weaves these ethical controversies in a compelling narrative that dawns in the year 632 A. F. (After Ford, the deity).

    It's 2116, and Bernard Marx and Helmholtz Watson are token rebels in an irretrievably corrupted society where promiscuity is the norm, eugenics a respectable science, and morality turned upside down. There is no poverty, crime or sickness - but no creativity, art or culture either. Human beings are merely docile citizens: divided into castes, brainwashed and controlled by the state and dependent on the drug soma for superficial gratification.

    Eine Welt ohne Gewalt? In ferner Zukunft ist die ideale Gesellschaft geformt: Künstlich reproduzierte, genmanipulierte Menschen sind mit Hilfe von Gehirnwäsche und Drogen glückliche Konsumenten. Nur der Alpha Bernard Marx scheint von einer unbestimmten Sehnsucht nach Freiheit getrieben zu sein. Ein Besuch in einem der wenigen verbliebenen Reservate, in denen noch das alte, unperfekte Leben geführt wird, könnte ihn von seinem Unbehagen heilen - oder etwa nicht?

    The CBS Radio Workshop was an experimental series of productions, subtitled "radio's distinguished series to man's imagination" that ran between 27 January 1956 and 22 September 1957. The premiere production was Brave New World, narrated by Huxley himself, with a complicated sound-effects score that evidently took a long time to construct, and comprised a ticking metronome, tom-tom beats, bubbling water, an air hose, a cow's moo, an oscillator, and three kinds of wine glasses clicking together.

    Im Jahre 632 nach Ford ist die Welt ein perfekter Ort: Kriminalität und Armut gehören der Vergangenheit an. Babys werden in Flaschen gezüchtet und so konditioniert, dass sie später, betäubt durch die Glücksdroge Soma, zufrieden den ihnen zugedachten Platz in der Gesellschaft einnehmen. Doch dann betritt ein sogenannter Wilder die "Schöne neue Welt". Der faszinierende Fremde, der über Gefühle und Freiheit spricht, wird wie ein Star gefeiert - bis er zur Bedrohung für die selbsternannte Zivilisation wird.

    Young Oxford tutor Theodore Gumbril has become thoroughly dismayed by the formality of college life and the staid British institutions of learning. An impetuous need for celebration, even rebellion, possesses him. He and his bohemian companions embark on wild and daring "bacchanalian" adventures that steer them resolutely away from stifling conventions of behavior. Antic Hay, first published in 1923, is one of Aldous Huxley's earlier novels, and like them is primarily a 'novel of ideas' involving conversations which disclose viewpoints rather than establish characters; its polemical theme unfolds against the backdrop of London's post-war nihilistic Bohemia. This is Huxley at his biting, brilliant best -- a novel, loud with derisive laughter, which satirically scoffs at all conventional morality and at stuffy people everywhere -- a novel that's always charged with excitement.

    One of the greatest prose writers and social commentators of the 20th century, Aldous Huxley here introduces us to a delightfully cynical, comic, and severe group of artists and intellectuals engaged in the most free-thinking and modern kind of talk imaginable. Poetry, occultism, ancestral history, and Italian primitive painting are just a few of the subjects competing for discussion among the amiable cast of eccentrics drawn together at Crome, an intensely English country manor.

    Denis Stone, a self-conscious young poet, is invited to the English town home of Crome, renowned for its gatherings of intellectuals. Hosted by Henry and Priscilla Wimbush, the house party has much to offer the naive Denis. The guests include the self-contained Anne, whom Denis adores; the handsome artist Gombauld, his rival for Anne's affections; and the cynical Mr. Scogan. All have their stories and ideas to unfold but, as Denis comes to realize, ideas cannot compensate for reality.
