I have wondered if Huxley and Orwell read each other’s dystopian novels.
Here is a link:
I read both their novels at the age of fifteen, and found Orwell’s was the one that gripped and horrified me.
‘Brave New World’ I felt lacked the anger and despair that I found so resonant with my life. And I don’t agree with Huxley that his vision comes closer to political reality. Totalitarian regimes use elements of both.
