Island begins when an Englishman intentionally shipwrecks himself on the shores of the isolated Pala, determined to procure access to its oil supplies for his employer. He does not expect what he finds—a small slice of paradise on earth.
A counterpart to his dystopia, Brave New World, Island is Huxley’s great work of Utopian fiction, depicting a society living in peaceful harmony through a blend of Western science and Eastern spirituality. It is Huxley’s ultimate plea for an enlightened culture, in balance both with one another an inwardly, though he is ready to admit that such a balance may be terminally fragile.
