Sample text

Nothing in the past was worth saving. At the same time came a decade of sudden scientific advance and material prosperity. People had the money and machines to do anything; but no one knew what ought to be done, or whether anything was worth doing. The result was that sense of meaninglessness in which hedonism flourishes. CAKES AND ALE 25 No writer has been better fitted to record this era than Aldous Huxley. Nephew of Matthew Arnold, grandson of Darwin's disciple Thomas Henry Huxley, brother of the he comes from a famous literary and attended Eton and Oxford, survived the biologist Julian Huxley, scientific family.

The change from the ideal of pleasure to that of duty mean that we are fated to a life of unhappy struggle. Indeed, it may bring a real sense of relief, because we are no does not longer the prey of chance impulses, but have solid standards on which to lean. This point is made with quiet convincingness 6 by Wordsworth in his Ode to Duty. For a number of years Wordsworth had lived in the country surrounded by the natural beauty which he loved, and had felt an almost continual emotional exaltation from the hills and woods of his native lake district.

For one reason or another, and with varying degrees of success, many of his main characters consciously crave pleasure as the end of life. Two of will illustrate the point: a Cyrenaic and an Epicurean. them CAKES AND ALE 27 better picture of the modern Cyrenaic than Lucy Tantamount, the "refined and perfumed imitation of a savage or an animal," endowed by nature with every quality that would make possible a life of immediate pleasure. Her mother calls her a leprechaun, which, she remarks, is not an easy creature to rear.
