Summary

An insightful novel about two women in Edwardian England and the men who pursue them by the author of Mrs. Dalloway.Exploring themes of love, marriage, and freedom, Night and Day follows four characters: a privileged woman who prefers her solitude; a vicar’s daughter who is fighting for women’s suffrage; a lawyer caught in an obsessive romantic fixation; and a struggling writer who seeks a bride more for the sake of his career than for love. It is an absorbing story of passion and conflict, and a portrait of the expectations, anxieties, and hopes of men and women in a time of great social change.

    Ranked among the classic novels of the English language and the inspiration for several unforgettable movies, this early work of H. G. Wells was greeted in 1896 by howls of protest from reviewers, who found it horrifying and blasphemous. They wanted to know more about the wondrous possibilities of science shown in his first book, "The Time Machine", not its potential for misuse and terror. In The Island of Dr. Moreau, a shipwrecked gentleman named Edward Prendick, stranded on a Pacific island lorded over by the notorious Dr. Moreau, confronts dark secrets, strange creatures, and a reason to run for his life.
     
    While this riveting tale was intended to be a commentary on evolution, divine creation, and the tension between human nature and culture, modern readers familiar with genetic engineering will marvel at Wells's prediction of the ethical issues raised by producing "smarter" human beings or bringing back extinct species. These levels of interpretation add a richness to Prendick's adventures on Dr. Moreau's island of lost souls without distracting from what is still a rip-roaring good read.
