Semmler, Clement. 1970. The Australian Quarterly 42, no. 4: 74-82.

This journal article examines the life of writer Aldous Huxley, from his youth to his political opinions as a young man to his fascination with religion in his later years. Semmler connects each of these facets of Huxley’s life and personality with an element of his most famous novel, Brave New World. The novel itself was written in 1932, and Semmler addresses the effect that World War I and the Great Depression had on Huxley’s writing as well as his philosophy.
