Aldous Huxley’s “Island”

An even braver new world?

The last book of visionary writer Aldous Huxley (1894–1963), Island, is a bold attempt to envision a utopian society that provides its members with everything they need to achieve happiness in life. The author of Brave New World tried here to show a positive vision of how he thought that human beings should live and flourish — but the darkness is never far behind, even in this paradise.
