Download Epub Format ✓ Ape and Essence PDF by ë Aldous Huxley Re reading my precious 1st edition page 51 Fear also casts out intelligence, casts out goodness, casts out all thought of beauty and truth What remains in the bum or studiedly jocular desperation of one who is aware of the obscene Presence in the corner of the room and knows that the door is locked, that there aren t any windows And now the thing bears down on him He feels a hand on his sleeve, smells a stinking breath, as the executioner s assistant leans almost amorously toward him Your turn next, brother Kindly step this way And in an instant his quiet terror is transmuted into a frenzy as violent as it is futile There is no longer a man among his fellow men, no longer a rational being speaking articulately to other rational beings the All chanting Give me Detumescence.
Give me Detumescence.

In a post apocalyptic world destroyed by the nefarious nationalistic exploitation of science, Huxley offers up a supremely hilarious post apocalyptic satire In Los Angeles, a new religion has arisen where the Devil as Belial has substituted God, while maintaining all other aspects of today s structured institutions of faith Using this simple device, he penetratingly skewers organized religioneffectively than with direct criticism Along the way he delights in puncturing the mystique of Hollywood and the carefree mid twentieth century lifestyle of Southern California These are perennial Huxley themes in his fiction and non fiction, but nowhere does he present them in such an over the top funny way The satire is hilarious, continuous, and irreverent T In February , The New Zealand Rediscovery Expedition Reaches California At Last It Is Over A Century Since The World Was Devastated By Nuclear War, But The Blight Of Radioactivity And Disease Still Gnaws Away At The Survivors The Expedition Expects To Find Physical Destruction But They Are Quite Unprepared For The Moral Degradation They Meet Ape and Essence Is Huxley S Vision Of The Ruin Of Humanity, Told With All His Knowledge And Imaginative Genius Cruelty and compassion come with the chromosomesI ve elected to storm into the ranks of Huxley, like a Korean antihero in a Vengeance film This is a peculiar fruit There was much from which I recoiled I feel at moments that History had made the novel look foolish and impotent The reasons to dislike this were LegionThe novel s thrust is a rejected screenplayThe narrative then is couchedin satirical and cinematic termsspeaking of a futurea world devastated by nuclear exchangeKiwis having no strategic importanceSet out to trawl the ruinsSub Saharan Africa as wellThough Huxley leaves us with but an ill hud parenthesisBack to the New Zealanders Broaching the California shores100 years after the mushroom cloudsHe finds a strange tribal societyOne worshiping the DiabolicalFor what else could govern theirHaphazard hungry liv While I was reading this book I laughed and realized this is where DEVO got all their shit from Huxley, back in the 1930 s said in this brilliant novel that while we technologically advance we will behaveandlike crazed apes The Truth Behind De Evolution I m sure the Mothersbaugh and Casale Brothers read this bookthan a few times when they attended Kent State in Ohio Huxley switches time span gears like crazy, veering from a Darwinian 1930 s Busby Berkeley musical to a cold, bleak sci fi fable, all taking place in the sleazy Eden that is Hollywood Huxley has given us a Jean Harlow worthy glam sci fi novel There s never been a book like Ape and Essence It really will blow your mind I think I ve read this book Prvih 50 ak stranica bila sam totalno izgubljena u knjizi, radnji i svemu ostalome, a onda Mra no, ironi no, potresno i genijalno, sve ono to Huxley je.
The leech s kiss, the squid s embrace, the prurient ape s defiling touch And do you like the human race No, not much I read this book in high school after I had finished Brave New World Almost back to back Ape and Essence is a story within a story, a screenplay written by one of the semi autobiographical characters The screenplay is rescued from the Hollywood reject bin, and after the finders find the author on his desert hacienda, the screenplay then becomes the novel The quote, above, is Huxley speaking his own mind as well as the recluse author s The screenplay is a great literary device by which Huxley becomes twice removed, in a sense, from the themes and ideas articulated therein The screenplay relates a tale of post nuclear war society where survivors from New Zealand rediscover what s left of California and find humans Distopija koja je na mene ostavila ne to slabiji utisak od svih prethodnihA i od Hakslija sam imala prevelika o ekivanja nakon to pro itah Ostrvo
