Chapter 13 and 14 analysis

Post by Jason.Green on Tue May 23, 2017 5:46 pm

These two chapters give John a significant amount of character development in the way he views the world around him. He finds that the woman he is interested in, Lenina, is nothing like what he wants. John, who grew up reading the works of Shakespeare, has ideals of love and romance; however when Lenina becomes interested in him, he recognizes that none of those things are to be found in the way she acts. He insults her, calling her a whore, and leaves her. This clash of ideologies concerning sex and romantic relationships contrasts traditional values (John) and those of the modern age (Lenina).

John goes to the hospital after leaving Lenina and finds his mother is dying. He makes quite a disturbance in the hospital, and shows a genuine emotional reaction to seeing his mother in the state she is in. Contrary to John's actions, the way the nurses and children act are emotionless and almost robotic. They simply do not have to capacity to understand and emphasize with John, who just had to watch his mother die in front of him. John, in many ways, is a polar opposite to the society of Brave New World.
