The Three Ages of Utopia in Huxley’s work

The subject of the present article is the distinction between the three ages of utopia in Aldous Huxley’s work. The first age illustrates the inhuman paradise, as represented in the dystopian novel „Brave New World”(1931). The second age, the nightmare of the present world, is pictured in the essay” Brave New World Revisited” (1958)- an addenda to the novel, a lucid reconsideration of the fictional world, where Huxley reveals himself as a social prophet. The third age is one of prospective explorations: the novel „Island” is an evidence of the consubstantiality between utopia and dystopia in the tormented twentieth century. From the naive utopia to the austere dystopia, the genre suffered considerable mutations. This shows, once again, that literature is not a remote island secluded from social and political influence.

Keywords: Aldous Huxley, utopia, three Ages, inhuman paradise, nightmare, “Brave New World”
