Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 BRAVE NEW WORLD THEMES Personal identity is given up for the good of the community. In this society, people are made rather than born. There is an established "caste" system and everyone is separated into five groups. Therefore, a given individual is little more than a faceless, color-coded member of a larger group. CHARACTERS Bernard John Savage Lenina Avoidance of the truth is seen as characters face their own situations. The universal drug soma creates an example of their self-delusion. Soma takes away the realities of everyday life and replaces them with hallucinations that in return act as the main tool for social stability. It is ingrained in the peoples heads that happiness is better than the truth. "Talking about her as though she were a bit of meat." Bernard ground his teeth. "Have her here, have her there." Like mutton. Degrading her to so much mutton. She said she'd think it over, she said she'd give me an answer this week. Oh, Ford, Ford, Ford." He would have liked to go up to them and hit them in the face hard, again and again. (3.139) The Savage nodded, frowning. "You got rid of of them. Yes, that's just like you. Getting rid of everything unpleasant instead of learning to put up with it. Whether 'tis better in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, or to take arms against a sea of troubles and by opposing end them But you don't do either. Neither suffer nor oppose. You just abolish the slings and arrows. It's too easy." (17.50) Then, in a resolutely cheerful voice, "Anyhow," he concluded, "there's one thing we can be certain of; whoever he may have been, he was happy when he was alive. Everybody's happy now." "Yes, everybody's happy now," echoed Lenina. They had heard the words repeated a hundred and fifty times every night for twelve years. (5.1.14-5) LITERARY DEVICE IMAGERY Obediently, with all the others, Lenina and Henry left the building. The depressing stars had travelled quite some way across the heavens. But though the separating screen of the sky-signs had now to a great extent dissolved, the two young people still retained their happy ignorance of the night. (5.1.21)
