Description

A lonely island in the Pacific. The sinister scientist who rules it. And the strange beings who dwell there " This is the scenario for H. G. Wells s haunting classic, one of his most intriguing and visionary novels. Living in the late nineteenth century and facing the impact of Darwin s theory of evolution, Wells wrote this chilling masterpiece about the characteristics of beasts blurring as the animals turn into men. Dr. Moreau, a scientist expelled from his homeland for his cruel vivisection experiments, finds a deserted island that gives him the freedom to continue torturous transplantations and create hideous creatures with manlike intelligence. But as the brutally enforced order on Moreau s island dissolves, the true consequences of his experiments emerge, and his creations revert to beasts more shocking than nature could devise. A genius of his time, H. G. Wells foresaw the use of what he called the atom bomb, the practice of gene-splicing, and men landing on the moon. Now, when these have become part of everyday life, his dark fable serves as a compelling reminder of the horrors that reckless experiments with nature can produce. With a New Introductionby Nita A. Farahanyand an Afterword by Dr. John L. Flynn
