pubOne.­info thank you for your continued support and wish to present you this new edition. The family of Dashwood had long been settled in Sussex. Their estate was large, and their residence was at Norland Park, in the centre of their property, where, for many generations, they had lived in so respectable a manner as to engage the general good opinion of their surrounding acquaintance.

What will the future be like? How often have we wondered. But who before Wells thought to imagine a machine that would take us there - a machine that has been re-­thought in innumerable movies, novels and other media since? His future was one of divided races, as emblematic in their way as Swift's Yahoos and other races. But what has most remained from the idea which Wells imagined in this book is the idea that we might be able to visit time as we visit space, and the idea has never lost its hold on the popular imagination.

Author:

Moby Dick is the story of Captain Ahab's quest to avenge the whale that 'reaped' his leg. The quest is an obsession and the novel is a diabolical study of how a man becomes a fanatic. But it is also a hymn to democracy. Bent as the crew is on Ahab's appalling crusade, it is equally the image of a co-­operative community at work: all hands dependent on all hands, each individual responsible for the security of each. Among the crew is Ishmael, the novel's narrator, ordinary sailor, and extraordinary reader. Digressive, allusive, vulgar, transcendent, the story Ishmael tells is above all an education: in the practice of whaling, in the art of writing.
