Biographical history

Aldous Huxley was an English novelist and essayist, the grandson of T H Huxley. He studied at Oxford, lived mainly in Italy in the 1920s, where he befriended D H Lawrence. Early writing included poetry, short stories, and literary journalism, but his reputation was made with his satirical novels. Later novels include Point Counter Point (1928) and his best-known work, Brave New World (1932). His later writing became more mystical, as in Eyeless in Gaza (1936) and Time Must Have a Stop (1944), while Island (1962) is utopian.
