When a Victorian scientist propels himself into the year a.d. 802,701, he is initially delighted to find that suffering has been replaced by beauty, contentment, and peace. Entranced at first by the Eloi, an elfin species descended from man, he soon realizes that these beautiful people are simply remnants of a once-great culturenow weak and childishly afraid of the dark. They have every reason to be afraid: in deep tunnels beneath their paradise lurks another race descended from humanitythe sinister Morlocks. And when the scientists time machine vanishes, it becomes clear he must search these tunnels if he is ever to return to his own era.
- Includes a newly established text, a full biographical essay on Wells, a list of further reading, and detailed notes
- Marina Warners introduction considers Wellss development of the "scientific romance" and places the novel in the context of its time
Henry James saw in Wells the most gifted writer of the age, but Wells, having coined the phrase "the war that will end war" to describe World War I, became increasingly disillusioned and focused his attention on educating mankind with his bestselling Outline of History (1920) and his later utopian works. Living until 1946, Wells witnessed a world more terrible than any of his imaginative visions, and he bitterly observed: "Reality has taken a leaf from my book and set itself to supercede me."
Marina Warner is a prize-winning writer of fiction, criticism, and history.
