The Time Machine


Originally published in 1895, H. G. Wells’ unequivocallyvisionary tale popularized the concept of time travel. Set in VictorianEngland, it tells the story of a scientist and gentleman inventor who builds amachine capable of transporting a person through time, which he calls thefourth dimension. Propelling himself to the year 802,701, the man is delightedby what he finds: the Eloi, an elfin race who seem to have replaced the toiland suffering of the world with beauty and contentment. But not all is well inthe world of the Eloi. What remains of this once-great culture now lives infear of the terrifying Morlocks, an underground race who threaten the timetraveler’s return home.

H. G. Wells was a pioneer of the science fictiongenre. This hugely influential novel, which questions our place on Earth,weaves in his ideas of sociology and the social impact of industrialization.
