DYSTOPIAN WRITING ASSESSMENT | Better Read than Dead: insert your sub-title here

Many Dystopian Novels are reactionary pieces to events that are
headlining the news in their respective publication decades. In some
way, shape or form, they promote an escape from the cave. Many of
the issues that irked Aldous Huxley when he wrote his novel are in the
news today. You probably noticed that the attitudes exhibited are those
YOU have held about recent and current events.

For this paper, pull the following facets together –

  1. evidence from the NOVEL:BRAVE NEW WORLD (minimum 3 quotes from the text),
  2. INFO from Utopia Lecture,--use the slide Essentials of Utopian LIt (ON THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE I WROTE SOME OF THE NOTES FROM THE LECTURE)
  3. a discussion on your WHAT IF choice(what if choices: CASTE, DRUGS, MEDICAL ADVANCEMENTS, LOVE), (intro or in body argument)
  4. a CURRENT NEWS REPORT from a reputable news organization (minimum 1 quote),
  5. and how, together, they promote or do not promote an ESCAPE FROM THE CAVE.

Then in your paper, explain how one character would respond to the
event, the opinions the character would have about what was happening in
the event, and how it all relates to an escape from the cave.

Consider the following formula:

  • Identify your character and describe their personality, using
    quotations or direct reference to incidents in the novel to substantiate
    your claims about the character. What general issues interest him or
    her?
  • Indicate which of the What Ifs you explored. 

  • Categorize the news article, then summarize it and document the source from which you 
garner this information. 

  • Explain
    how you and your character would respond to the current event you’ve
    summarized. You may show your attitude through choice of words and
    images (which is the way writers reflect TONE–author’s attitude toward a
    particular subject). 

  • Explain how you and the character see this as an escape from the cave. 

  • You
    may be creative in your organization – What is critical is that you
    show you understand the personality and motivation of the character in
    the novel.
  • Include documentation of book and current news events.

brave new world

  • written by Aldous Huxley
  • published 1932
  • written to criticize western civilization
  • expresses
    Huxley’s distress at what he regarded as the spiritual bankruptcy of
    the modern world and mysticism caused by the widespread use of alcohol
    and hallucinatory drugs
  • expresses a possible future of a society he saw slipping from grace
  • Huxley’s Utopia is by no means perfect, as he never intended it to be
  • wrote Brave New World revisited
    in the 1950s to reassess how accurate his original projections were… it
    turns out that he was pretty accurate… especially if you look at our
    world even fifty years later
