Complete essays by Aldous Huxley( Book )

6 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 607 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over his lifetime from 1894 to 1963, Aldous Huxley earned a reputation as one of the giants of modern English prose and of social commentary in our time. Best known for his novels, including Brave New World and Point Counter Point, Huxley was nonetheless very much at home in the essay form. Ranging from journalism to critical reviews to lierary, political, cultural, and philosophical reflections, these essays stand among the finest examples of the genre in modern literature. They also provide absorbing commentary on contmporary currents and events."--p. [2] of cover
Aldous Huxley : selected letters by Aldous Huxley( Book )

8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Aldous Huxley's letters offer an engaging encounter with one of the twentieth century's liveliest minds. Of the ten thousand letters Huxley wrote, only a fraction have previously been published. James Sexton's thoughtful selections, coming almost forty years after the first appearance of a volume of Huxley's letters, consists largely of letters the have never before been published, including many intimate items that were once considered too sensitive for publication. This new collection opens fresh perspectives in the personal and intellectual life of one of the giants of modern English prose and of social commentary of our time." "Some of the earliest Huxley letters movingly depict his courageous battle with almost total blindness and his resulting unfitness for service in the Great War. Later letters to his patroness, Lady Ottoline Morrell, demonstrate much of the brilliance that would soon gain Huxley an international reputation as one of his generations's major satirists." "Perhaps the most fascinating group of letters in this edition is the sparkling correspondence from Huxley to the Bloomsbury hostess Mary Hutchinson, reveling Aldous as a witty yet ardent lover. Other distinguished correspondents include H.L. Mencken, T.S. Eliot, Bertrand Russell, Clive Bell, and D.H. Lawrence. Numerous letters with exotic postmarks form a supplement to Huxley's great travel books such as Jesting Pilate and Beyond the Mexique Bay." "Gradually the letters reveal a shift from a young and cynical satirist in the 1920s to a more committed critic of fascism. By the mid-1930s Huxley emerges as a dedicated seeker of strategies to ensure peace, on both global and personal levels. The letters also provide plentiful insights into the London and New York theater scenes and vivid discussions of Hollywood's film industry, in which Huxley enjoyed success as a scriptwriter. In his later years his letters reflect his captivation with Eastern religions."--Jacket
Now more than ever by Aldous Huxley( Book )

5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written in 1932-1933 immediately after Huxley had completed Brave New World, Now More Than Ever is a response to the social, economic, and political upheavals of its time. Huxley's protagonist is an idealistic financier whose grandiose scheme for industrial renewal drives him to swindling and finally to suicide. His fate, which mirrors that of the notorious Swedish financier Ivar Kreuger, allows Huxley to expose the evils he perceives in free-market capitalism while pleading the case for national economic planning and the wholesale rationalization of Britain's industrial base."--Jacket
