Lesson 1 - Best Times. Aldous Huxley versus George Orwell - Words, Language & Poetry - Ego Dialogues. “Amusing Ourselves To Death” is a very cool infographic showing a comparison between Aldous Huxley’s view of the future from “Brave New World” and George Orwell’s fears or vision expressed in “Nineteen-Eighty-Four”. Enjoy! I read “Brave New World” when I was a teenager. It looks like it’s time to read it again. Which one do you like better: “Brave New World” or “Nineteen Eighty-Four”?
