Common Core State Standards Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
Cite strong and thorough textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text, including determining where the text leaves matters uncertain.
Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in the text, including figurative and connotative meanings; analyze the impact of specific word choices on meaning and tone, including words with multiple meanings or language that is particularly fresh, engaging, or beautiful. (Include Shakespeare as well as other authors.)
Analyze how an author's choices concerning how to structure specific parts of a text (e.g., the choice of where to begin or end a story, the choice to provide a comedic or tragic resolution) contribute to its overall structure and meaning as well as its aesthetic impact.
Analyze a case in which grasping a point of view requires distinguishing what is directly stated in a text from what is really meant (e.g., satire, sarcasm, irony, or understatement).
Aldous Huxley's Brave New World is about a dystopian world 500 years in the future. All of humanity is controlled by an authoritarian regime that uses genetic engineering, pharmaceuticals, global social conditioning, oppressive thought control, propaganda, and more to keep people in line. The stability this produces carries a terrible cost in human individuality and happiness. However, despite the best efforts of the world state, the book's protagonists discover that human discontent cannot be stifled completely.
