Antic Hay

Portada
Vintage, 2004 - 295 páginas
“Futilitarian” best describes the type of desultory, pleasure-seeking intellectual Huxley pinned so mercilessly to the literary map inAntic Hay. Wickedly funny and deliciously barbed, the novel epitomizes the glittering neuroticism of post-First World War London.

Acerca del autor (2004)

Aldous Huxleycame to literary fame in 1921 with his first novel, Crome Yellow. With the novels Antic Hay, Those Barren Leavesand Point Counter Point, Huxley quickly established a reputation for bright, brilliant satires that ruthlessly passed judgement on the shortcomings of contemporary society. In later life, exploration of the inner life through mysticism and hallucinogenic drugs dominated Huxley's writing, including his first-person account of experiencing mescaline in The Doors of Perception. Aldous Huxley died in 1963.
