Notes: The first novel to consider human cloning, and Huxley's dystopian masterpiece celebrating a utopian future whilst in truth illustrating the horror it delivers. Huxley wrote to Orwell suggesting that the future 'Brave New World' portrayed was more likely than that of 'Nineteen Eighty Four', 'an all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced because they love their servitude', but he was later to revise this view.
