Example text

Again, this is not a unique story. The Romantics, especially William Wordsworth (1770舒1850) in his poem 舠Lines Left Upon a Seat in a, Yew Tree舡 (1795), explore this very theme, while Wells舗s model, Mary Shelley, provides him with the nucleus of his novel舒the solitary scientist, the potentially dangerous invention pursued for egotistical purposes. So The Invisible Man is a cautionary tale the author writes for his generation and for himself. When we forget that we too are merely human, when we take ourselves to be something like gods because we can do things ordinary people cannot do, we run the risk of regarding our neighbors with contempt.

The Time Machine, then, stands as a pessimistic response to the optimism animating nineteenth-century thought and locates Wells squarely in his historical context. Three thinkers舒Hegel, Marx, and Darwin舒define the optimistic mind-set of the nineteenth century, itself a logical response to the great strides being made by technology and to the lessons if not the realities of the two great revolutions of the late-eighteenth century, that of the United States in 1776 and the French Revolution of 1789.
