By: (1894-1963)

Burning Wheel by Aldous Huxley is a captivating and thought-provoking novel that transports readers into a dystopian society where technology and social control have taken over every aspect of life. The story follows the protagonist, John, as he navigates through a world that is dictated by the ruling elite and their relentless pursuit of power.

Huxley's writing is both vivid and poignant, painting a vivid picture of a future that is both disturbing and eerily familiar. The characters are well-developed and complex, each struggling with their own inner turmoil and moral dilemmas in a world that is rapidly spiraling out of control.

One of the most compelling aspects of Burning Wheel is its exploration of the consequences of unchecked technological advancement and the ways in which it can be used to manipulate and control the masses. The novel raises important questions about the nature of power, authority, and the role of individuals in shaping their own destinies.

Overall, Burning Wheel is a thought-provoking and unsettling novel that will leave readers questioning the world around them long after they have finished reading. Aldous Huxley's masterful storytelling and keen insight make this a must-read for anyone interested in exploring the dark side of human nature and the potential dangers of technological advancement.

Book Description:
Though Aldous Huxley is best known for his later novels and essays, he started his writing career as a poet. The Burning Wheel is his first work, a collection of thirty poems that pay homage in style to poets who wrote in the Romantic or the French symbolist styles. Many of the poems deal with themes of light, darkness, sight, music, art, war, and idealism vs. realism. Though the optimism in his early works waned as he became older, his characteristically optimistic and determined point of view shines through. The last poem was read collaboratively by ezwa, AlgyPug and Larry Wilson.
