Brave New World

Construction of identity

Protest against consumerism and individualism

"Community, Identity, Stability"

Dislike reproduction system - people are produced, idea of consumerism

Stability of world dependent on stability of identity

Constructed into a social order - alphas at top, epsilons at bottom

Anything bad is removed

Bernard Marx

Chemical mistake - does not fit into society even though he wishes to

Does not function the same as others in society - this makes him 'othered'

He is not the norm and gets treated to fit this perception

Desperately wants to be a part of the norm - a good representation of the ruling class

Highlights what aspects of masculinity society favours, and critiques them

Bernard's shortness highlights that being tall is associated with success. Attractiveness is also associated with success, as is being liked by many women.

His physical 'deformities' put him outside of the norm in the novel

New node

Jane Eyre

Wide Sargasso Sea

Over My Dead Body

Indemnity Only


Light In August

Once Were Warriors
