Point Counter Point
A Critical Study by : Shakti Batra
This brilliant and satirical work is probably the most popular novel of one of England’s leading twentieth-century novelists, Aldous Huxley. The focus here shifts from one set of characters to another. Life sparkles more or less meaninglessly, but beneath the surface a central current moves. The effect that is produced is the effect of counter point.
The present critical study examines the multi-layered text from all angles from the point of view of our university students. The novel has been analysed and critically assessed in its various aspects and select textual problems have been taken up and answered.
