I need to prepare a short dissertation on the dystopian novel and the theme of totalitarianism or subordination (the parody of Stalin, Hitler, Winston Smith and Winston Churchill).
Here is a short summary of Huxley’s novel “Brave New World”. Could you please help me check it, Writeacher?


1) This novel is both utopian and dystopian. It begins as a utopia where everybody is happy, since no one questions their position. However, the dissatisfactions of the most intelligent citizens and the introduction of the savage John, a figure who represents the possibility of human free will, reveals the limits of this perfect programmed society in which the individual is completely subordinated to the needs of the social order.
2) Brave New World is a science-fiction style fable about a rigidly controlled global sate. The story is set in the 7th century AF (after Ford), referring to Henry Ford (1863-1947), the American manufacturer who perfected the mechanized assembly line and developed the idea of the modern, “robotic” factory worker.
