Description :

Small octavo, pp. [1-4] [1] 2-198 [199-216: ads], original brown cloth, front panel stamped in black, spine panel stamped in gold, rear panel stamped in blind, black coated endpapers. First edition. The novel first appeared as Arrowsmith's Christmas Annual for 1888. Issued in book form as "Arrowsmith's Bristol Library, Vol. XXXIII" bound in paper wrappers or, as here, in cloth. The discovery of immortality in the future brings socialism and revolution. "The novel has been justly defined a proto-BRAVE NEW WORLD, for the aberrations perpetrated by a despotic lodge of researchers . In the name of the advancement of medicine, the subjects of the Inner House have become a never-aging, gray community of lifeless and emotionless individuals; with no conscience [sic] of the past, and no concern for a remote future, they are trapped in their everlasting present. This dystopia must have influenced Wells' description of his Eloi in THE TIME MACHINE (1895)." - Carla Maria Gnappi, Science and Technology in Victorian Utopias (victorianweb.org). "A clumsy prefiguration of Orwell, and a clear influence on some elements in Morris." - Suvin, Victorian Science Fiction in the UK, p. 34. "Anti-utopian and anti-socialist. Over-regulated and overprotective society based on science achieving near-immortality." - Sargent (additions). "Besant, though largely forgotten today, was a major literary figure of his time. "This is one of his two novels (the other being THE REVOLT OF MAN, 1882) in which he used what would now be called fantastic or science fictional methods to attack progressive causes." - Robert Eldridge. Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-115. Lewis, Utopian Literature, p. 19. Negley, Utopian Literature: A Bibliography 97. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 33. Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1516-1985, Additions. Bleiler (1978), p. 22. Reginald 01212. Sadleir 182 (paperbound issue). Wolff 451 (paperbound issue, rebound without wrappers). A bit of light rubbing to cloth, rear inner hinge cracked but holding firm, a very good copy of a notably rare book. (#146182). N° de réf. du libraire

Description du livre Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2017. Paperback. État : New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.The Inner House (1888), which has been described as a proto-Brave New World, explores the consequences of artificially prolonged human life. On June 20, 1890, Professor Schwarzbaum announces at the Royal Institute and in various newspapers all over the world that he has invented an elixir which prevents ageing in the human body. The author, Walter Besant, contributed significantly to the late-Victorian dystopian fiction with his two novel, The Inner House. Dystopian Classic Editions publishes works of dystopian literature that have survived through the generations and been recognized as classic works of literature. A dystopian society is an imagined society in which the people are oppressed, however the government propagandizes the society as being a utopia or a perfect society. Typical themes in dystopian literature include public mistrust, police states, and overall unpleasantness for the citizens. Authors of dystopian works strive to present a worst-case scenario and negative depiction of the way things are in the story so as to make a criticism about a current situation in society and to call for a change. Each Dystopian Classic Edition selected for publication presents such a story. N° de réf. du libraire APC9781542802284
