Brave New World - John


Who is John?

How does he act and speak?

Relationship with other characters

John is the son of the Director and Linda. John is the only major character to have grown up outside of the World State. As an outsider, he has spent his life alienated from his village on the New Mexico Savage Reservation, and he finds himself unable to fit in to World State society. His entire worldview is based on his knowledge of Shakespeare’s plays, which he can quote very well.

John is a very knowledge person. Linda, his mother, taught him to read at a young age. He quotes Shakespeare all the time and knows most of his plays by heart.

John may be taken from the biblical John the Baptist, who was a prophet who fortold the coming of a new age, much like how John revealed the flaws in the Brave New World. Savage was a last name given John the Baptist because he lived among the savages.

John represents the flaw in the perfect society. He is educated and believes in individuality. He proves that a perfect, utopian society cannot exist, because it takes away the basic human right.

John's name

John is the son of the Director and Linda. He is also in love with Lenina and friends with Bernard and Helmholtz.

Who does he represent?

Huxley's theme

John further demonstrates Huxley's theme of the importance of individuality in society. John was born in a normal world and is seen as a smart character with a good heart. This further proves Huxley's theme.
