Biography

Born in the United Kingdom on 26 July 1894, died in California on 22 November 1963. He began writing in his early twenties. He wrote great novels on dehumanising aspects of scientific progress (Brave new world), and also pacifist novels (Eyeless in Gaza). Huxley was strongly influenced by F.
