“And that after this is accomplished, and the brave new world begins”
“The “Brave New World” was the phrase chosen by Aldous Huxley for the title of his famous 1932 novel about a dystopian future society based on what he knew of Stalinist Communism. This was exactly what Kipling meant when he coined the phrase!”
Kipling and Huxley used a line from Shakespeare play, “The Tempest” as the title of his book. It was spoken by Miranda on seeing men (Other than her father) for the first time.
How many goodly creatures are there here!
How beauteous mankind is! O brave new world
That has such people in’t!
‘Tis new to thee.
The Tempest Act 5, scene 1, 181184
Now Prospero’s reply is rather bland, but Kipling’s point is that people were charmed by the newness of Socialism and the destruction of traditional morals, the “Brave new world,” but they would soon find that the hackneyed old wisdom was preferable to the destruction that the novelty that freedom and new social experimentation wrecked in their lives.
