Brave New World is a dystopian novel written by Aldous Huxley, and published in 1998. Set in a future society where individuals are genetically engineered and conditioned to conform to a predetermined social hierarchy, the novel explores the consequences of such a society on individual freedom and happiness. In this future world, the government controls every aspect of life, including reproduction, which is carried out in a laboratory setting. People are divided into five castes based on their predetermined genetic makeup, and are trained to perform specific jobs and roles in society. Emotions are suppressed and individualism is discouraged, with people being conditioned to be content with their predetermined place in society.
The novel follows the story of Bernard Marx, a member of the intellectual elite who begins to question the society in which he lives and its values. He meets a woman named Lenina Crowne, who is also questioning the society's norms, and together they travel to a "savage reservation" where they encounter a society with different values and traditions
