willingly " (1).

Thesis Statement For 1984 And Brave New World - …

With the second paragraph, with its morgue-like description of cold (in spite of the "tropical heat of the room"), corpse-colored rubber, the frozen, dead "ghost" of the light, and the clinical gleam of glass, nickel and bleak porcelain, Huxley gets down to business. Into this atmosphere of autopsy (the "Fertilizing Room" as it turns out, that substitutes for the intimacy of sexual intercourse and reproduction in the Brave New World), Huxley inserts images of food: the hungry light, the "goose" of pallid goose-flesh, and of course the buttery microscope tubes drenched "streak after luscious streak" in light.

It should also be added that the paragraph is either confused, or confusing (which may be nothing more than another surreal disjunction that underlines the unnatural inversions the Brave New World espouses and reflects, but might also signify the confusion of conflict arising from an aversion to the flesh, whether Huxley's or purely thematic). For example, since "goose-flesh" usually occurs in cold, not "tropical heat," the actual temperature of the room is difficult to decide at first. The first word of the second sentence, "Cold", refers to the "harsh thin light" but, because of the intervening phrase ("for all the tropical heat of the room itself"), "Cold" seems to refer to the room. "Wintriness responded to wintriness" is similarly unclear at first; since there are both the "tropical heat" of the room and "all the summer beyond the panes," that the two wintrinesses refer to the "harsh thin light" and the clinical coldness of the laboratory is not readily apparent at first.

Why Helmholtz finds this so funny ("mother" is a wildly lewd term in the Brave New World, which has also adopted the pragmatic policy of cremating all bodies for phosphorous reclamation) is less significant than the obviously crossed paths of non-communication here; what the Savage is reading, and what Helmholtz is hearing, are totally different from one another. But note also that even the minimally dialogic exchange of "I'm sorry" and "I accept" has been elided; replaced by, "‘And yet,' said Helmholtz when...he had mollified the Savage." Later in the same scene, Huxley seems to go out of his way to dramatize this lack of communication; Helmholtz says, "And who's going to get excited about a boy having a girl or not having her?' (The Savage winced; but Helmholtz who was staring pensively at the floor, saw nothing.)" (188).

This is no minor point, insofar as it destroys what little general sense of coherence (though not necessarily its effects, as described above) Huxley's satire reflects. This, because it suggests that no statement by any character (except perhaps the World-Controller Mond, unless he too is conditioned) can be deemed reliable; it becomes impossible to separate truth from conditioning. For example, when the Director tells Bernard that it is an Alpha's "duty to be infantile, even against their inclination" (98), is this little flourish of authoritarianism (and hence satire), authoritarianism or conditioning? Similarly, during a Beta geography lesson, the students are told that "a savage reservation is a place which, owing to unfavourable climatic or geological conditions, or poverty of natural resources, " (164, my emphasis). In other words, like the liftman's condition, the deplorable conditions Huxley depicted on the Reservation are deliberate (or, at least, are capable of a remedy the Brave New World chooses not to affect). Again, though, is this little piece of totalitarian viciousness (and satire against Utopia) true? Or does Huxley (the Alpha Plus Propaganda Engineer) expect us to be good Betas and simply absorb whatever comes out of the loud speaker of his novel?

Not only are these typical authorial aspirations, they are also a fairly candid assessment of Huxley's own writing. For example, Helmholtz's aphoristic talent (and his complaints about its limitations) is reflected in the novel's hypnopaedic homilies, insofar as he might very well have written them for the Brave New World; Huxley, of course, wrote them for . Such homilies include "Civilization is sterilization," "Ending is better than mending," "The more stitches, the less riches," "One cubic centimetre cures ten gloomy sentiments," and "A gramme is better than a damn." One homily is proffered solely from the narrator's mouth; "Rams wrapped in theremogene beget no lambs."
