Over the course of his career, British writer Aldous Huxley (1894-1963) shifted away from elitist social satires and an atheistic outlook toward greater concern for the masses and the use of religious terms and imagery. This change in Huxley's thinking underlies the previously unpublished play Now More Than Ever.
Written in 1932-1933 just after Brave New World, Now More Than Ever is a response to the social, economic, and political upheavals of its time. Huxley's protagonist is an idealistic financier whose grandiose schemes for controlling the means of production drive him to swindling and finally to suicide. His fate allows Huxley to expose the evils he perceives in free-market capitalism while pleading the case for national economic planning and the rationalization of Britain's industrial base.
This volume contains the full text of Now More Than Ever, which was believed to be lost until 1976, when a copy was found at the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center of the University of Texas at Austin. A "thinker's play" that has never been produced on stage, it is the last previously unpublished piece of Huxley's major writings and immensely important to understanding his development as a writer. The editors of this volume have annotated the play for contemporary readers. Their introduction sets the play in the context of Huxley's intellectual life.

Buchbeschreibung Hellas Products Gmbh Jun 2017, 2017. Taschenbuch. Buchzustand: Neu. Neuware - Greece offers lots of opportunities, even during the crisis. That is the conclusion of the author Georg Petras. Like so many business colleagues from completely different sectors, he has rolled up his sleeves and kept on going. With informative insights due to his background you can find out lots of information about Greece, the sunny island of Rhodes, which belongs to the most beautiful regions of the world, and about the past seven years of crisis in this area. As a German in Greece and as a Greek in Germany, Petras has been allowed to live a 'double life' and has pointed out some interesting details in a very objective manner. In his story it is about people and partly about certain dramatic events. But the message, which through his personal background is conveyed in a staccato style, is clear. Never give up! And, Greece has enormous potential! Let s go Hellas! 143 pp. Englisch. Artikel-Nr. 9783990210215

Buchbeschreibung Peter Gmbh Lang Feb 1996, 1996. Buch. Buchzustand: Neu. Neuware - The aim of the International Aldous Huxley Centenary Symposium held at the University of Münster from 26 to 29 June 1994 was to discuss Huxley's mature achievement as a modern writer and thinker, concentrating on his later works from the thirties onwards. The Proceedings comprise 21 essays by European, American and Asian Huxley experts, arranged in six thematic groups, viz. «Biography», «Genre and Beyond», «Society and Politics», «Aldous Huxley's Critique of Pure Utopian Thought», «Religion», and «Philosophy». The volume opens with an hitherto unpublished memoir of Huxley by a well-known fellow writer, Robert Payne, dating back to 1948, and several contributors draw on rediscovered Huxley material, such as essays written in the thirties, the typescript of his last Utopia Island and his unpublished play Now More Than Ever (1932). Two indices of names and terms facilitate access to the present state of Huxley scholarship. 379 pp. Englisch. Artikel-Nr. 9783631479179
