Now More Than Ever
University of Texas Press, Jan 1, 2000 - Drama - 95 pages
Over the course of his long career, Aldous Huxley shifted away from elitist social satires and an uncompromising irreligion toward greater concern for the masses and the use of religious terms and imagery. This title was written just after Brave New World and 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 allows the author to expose the evils he percieves in free-market capitalism while pleading the case for national economic planning and the rationalisation of Britain's industrial base.
