For the first six chapters, Huxley introduces us to the “Brave New World” of the soma controlled society and manufactured humans At chapter seven he introduces us to John which soon becomes the protagonist, taking the place of Bernard Huxley is straightforward in introducing the Brave New World to us, by means of the Director’s dialogue in his tour of the Central London Hatchery and Conditioning Centre
At the end of chapter three, the last paragraph shows the dramatic writing style of Aldous Huxley “slowly, majestically... thirty-three centimetres an hour... glinted innumerable rubies” He describes the simplest details in a very detailed and complex way but with simple words, such as in chapter four where he describes the slowing down the rotor blades of the helicopter “The humming of the screws over head dropped an octave...wasp...hornet...stag beetle”
Huxley pays close attention to the precision of the detail in his writing throughout the whole novel with many stated numbers. ‘... jets through which at every twelfth metre from zero to 2040...the artificial maternal circulation on every bottle at metres 112’ ‘267 days for the bottles to travel along the conveyer belt at 33 centimetres per hour.’
Aldous Huxley alludes to religion throughout the novel: O Lord and O Ford A.D and A.F Religious meetings and the Solidarity Services In the world state, there are no gods or religions but science takes the place of all these.
There are a lot of references to Shakespeare “Brave New World”, the title itself comes from The Tempest said by Miranda. Also there are allusions to Romeo and Juliet, when John is leaning beside the soma-drunk Lenina. Repitition-hypnopaedia 3 rd person omniscient
