- Sex. A three letter word that in today’s society can be taken or received in so many different ways. Some people take it as a sacred word and others take the word loosely. It seems like in today’s society more and more people are not using the word or what it represents for how it was intended to be used. In Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World, sex has been downgraded from a sacred act between two people to just an action with no meaning so that if you do not do it, it is frowned upon.

Analysis Of Aldous Huxley 's Brave New World

- Happy endings to stories are often times pre conceived to mean something considered good -- things such as a romantic kiss confirming mutual love, a heroic “saves the day” moment, or a grand victory in an epic battle. However, the notion that happy endings only spur from sentient fortunate events is a misconceived one; in fact, happy endings can also be moral or spiritual, even if the final act closes with death. In Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World, John’s suicide that ends the novel gives him both spiritual reassessment and moral reconciliation as he searches for isolation both for his own sake and for what he believes to be the sake of World State as a whole....   [tags: Brave New World, Aldous Huxley, The World State]
