Crome Yellow

Aldous Huxley

George H. Doran Co., 1922

Product Description:

Crome Yellow is the first novel by British author Aldous Huxley, published in 1921. In the book, Huxley satirises the fads and fashions of the time. It is the story of a house party at Crome, a parodic version of Garsington Manor, home of Lady Ottoline Morrell, a house where authors such as Huxley and T. S. Eliot used to gather and write. The book contains a brief pre-figuring of Huxley's later novel, Brave New World. Mr. Scogan, one of the characters, describes an "impersonal generation" of the future that will "take the place of Nature's hideous system. In vast state incubators, rows upon rows of gravid bottles will supply the world with the population it requires. The family system will disappear; society, sapped at its very base, will have to find new foundations; and Eros, beautifully and irresponsibly free, will flit like a gay butterfly from flower to flower through a sunlit world."

Book Description Vintage. 1 Paperback(s), 2004. soft. Book Condition: New. One of the great social commentators of the 20th century, Aldous Huxley introduces us to a delightfully cynical, comic, and severe group of artists and intellectuals in this 1921 novel, "too ironic to be called satire and too scornful to be called irony" (F. Scott Fitzgerald). On vacation from school, Denis visits Crome, an English country house inhabited by such outlandish characters as Mr. Barbecue-Smith, who writes 1500 publishable words an hour by "getting in touch" with his "subconscious," and Henry Wimbush, who is obsessed with producing the definitive History of Crome. Denis's stay proves to be a disaster, however, amid his weak attempts to attract the girl of his dreams and the ridicule he endures regarding his plan to write a novel about love and art. 170.
