BRAVE NEW WORLD, Chapters 13-18 Please answer the following questions about our final chapters of Brave New World. One to two paragraphs for each question should suffice. Chapter 13: Why does the Savage behave as he does when Lenina tries to seduce him? What was your reaction to this scene, to the Savage’s treatment of Lenina in general? Chapters 14/15: After the Savage watches his mother Linda die in Chapter 14, he stumbles upon a soma distribution for a crowd of adult Delta “twins.” His reaction is fierce: “Twins, twins…Like maggots they had swarmed defilingly over the mystery of Linda’s death. Maggots again, but larger, full grown, they now crawled across his grief and his repentance.” He reacts by throwing all their soma out the window. Why does the Savage find the drug soma to be so terrible? Chapters 16/17: In Chapters 16 and 17, the Savage, Bernard, and Helmholtz, meet with Mustapha Mond (one of the “World Controllers”) to learn of their “punishment” for not conforming to civilization (Bernard and Helmholtz will be sent to an “island” to live, and the Savage will stay behind “for observation”). During these chapters we learn a lot about WHY the society of Brave New World was designed the way it was. Beauty, science, God, nobility, heroism, art, romantic love, family love, passion, etc. are all considered to be “politically inefficient.” These things interfere, according to Mond, with societal stability. As he says on page 220: “…The world’s stable now. People are happy; they get what they want, and they never want what they can’t get. They’re well off; they’re safe; they’re never ill; they’re not afraid of death; they’re blissfully ignorant of passion and old age; they’re plagued with no mothers or fathers; they’ve got no wives or children, or lovers to feel strongly about; they’re so conditioned that they practically can’t help behaving as they ought to behave. And if anything should go wrong, there’s soma….” Does the description above sound like a “happy” and “stable” society to you? Certainly, the society Mond describes is comfortable, with every “need” met, but does happiness involve something different than comfort and safety, in your view? Please be specific with your response. Chapter 18: Why does the Savage commit suicide at the end of the novel? Were you surprised that he did this?
