    About H.G. Wells


    1. In 1866, Herbert George H.G Wells was born to a working class family in Kent, England Young Wells received a spotty education, interrupted by several illnesses and family difficulties, and became a draper s apprentice as a teenager The headmaster of Midhurst Grammar School, where he had spent a year, arranged for him to return as an usher, or student teacher Wells earned a government scholarship in 1884, to study biology under Thomas Henry Huxley at the Normal School of Science Wells earned his bachelor of science and doctor of science degrees at the University of London After marrying his cousin, Isabel, Wells began to supplement his teaching salary with short stories and freelance articles, then books, including The Time Machine 1895 , The Island of Dr Moreau 1896 , The Invisible Man 1897 , and The War of the Worlds 1898.Wells created a mild scandal when he divorced his cousin to marry one of his best students, Amy Catherine Robbins Although his second marriage was lasting and produced two sons, Wells was an unabashed advocate of free as opposed to indiscriminate love He continued to openly have extra marital liaisons, most famously with Margaret Sanger, and a ten year relationship with the author Rebecca West, who had one of his two out of wedlock children A one time member of the Fabian Society, Wells sought active change His 100 books included many novels, as well as nonfiction, such as A Modern Utopia 1905 , The Outline of History 1920 , A Short History of the World 1922 , The Shape of Things to Come 1933 , and The Work, Wealth and Happiness of Mankind 1932 One of his booklets was Crux Ansata, An Indictment of the Roman Catholic Church Although Wells toyed briefly with the idea of a divine will in his book, God the Invisible King 1917 , it was a temporary aberration Wells used his international fame to promote his favorite causes, including the prevention of war, and was received by government officials around the world He is best remembered as an early writer of science fiction and futurism.He was also an outspoken socialist Wells and Jules Verne are each sometimes referred to as The Fathers of Science Fiction D 1946.More philosopedia indexp H._ine literature wellhgwellsusa.50megs britannica EBchecked tenpedia wiki H._G._Wells

    2. Science fiction with more purpose than just entertain. H. G. Wells surprised me a lot with The War of the Worlds early this year, and I was in the mood for something short and great. The Country of the Blind is very good, it deals with intelectual diferences due to diferent habilities, in this case, using the sight as example. An interesting read, perfect after a complicated book or while having a hard time at school or work.Mi nuevo trabajo me tiene full, gente. Pero espero este mes de diciembr [...]

    4. “En el país de los ciegos, el tuerto es rey” H.G. Wells es uno de esos escritores que puede tomar algo que todos tomamos, por cierto, como este refrán, y demostrar lo equivocados que estamos. Este es un libro que va de lo que es ser minoría, Núñez, el protagonista, cae en el país de los ciegos y, creyéndose superior, se topa con que el verdadero poder y grandeza está en la pertenencia no en la diferencia. En muchas ocasiones me he encontrado con personas que hablan de la reivindicaci [...]

    6. Kısacık ama güçlü bir öykü. Wells'in, Zaman Makinesi'nde de karşımıza çıkan evrimi yüceltici tavrı burada da mevcut yine. Hatta evrimle Platon'un İdealar Dünyası kavramını birleştiriyor bile diyebiliriz. Sonunun açıklığı da pek hoş."İnsanın, kendisinden farklı bir dünya algısına sahip yaratıklarla güle oynaya dövüşmesinin bile mümkün olmadığını idrak etmeye başladı."

    7. Μια φανταστική ιστορία ενός ανθρώπου που φτάνει στην χώρα των τυφλών κ προσπαθεί να τους πείσει ότι είναι ο βασιλιάς τους μόνο και μόνο επειδή βλέπει. Τα πράγματα όμως δεν πάνε όπως τα περίμενε

    8. Si dice: si legge d'un fiato, in poche ore; ma senza dubbio questo racconto non merita tanta fretta. Il villaggio dei ciechi si trova in una remota valle delle Ande, circondata da ghiacciai, inaccessibile anche ai più coraggiosi esploratori; i monti intorno fanno da cornice a un cielo meraviglioso, della cui vista nessuno degli abitanti può godere. Non conoscono l'azzurro del giorno, né le stelle della sera; non ipotizzano neppure l'esistenza di uno spazio esterno alla loro valle: la loro int [...]

    9. Questione di punti di vistaHerbert George Wells era uno scrittore e scienziato, allievo di Thomas Huxley, scienziato evoluzionista, nonno dello scrittore Aldous Huxley de "Il mondo nuovo", che casualmente ho appena terminato di leggere in questi giorni.Wells scrisse nel 1904 questo brevissimo racconto di fantascienza, "Il paese dei ciechi", che mi ha ricordato altri famosi racconti che partono da situazioni anomale o impossibili e aiutano a pensare in modo "diverso", quali Flatlandia, Le intermi [...]

    16. “Beati monoculi in terra caecorum”: la saggezza popolare si “scontra” con la scienza. Un fulminante racconto in cui si ritrovano temi scientifici, fantascientifici, ma anche tanta poesia. Diverse sono le interpretazioni che se ne possono dare: antropologiche, politiche, culturali. In ogni caso l’effetto è quello di farci riflettere sul relativismo culturale, sui concetti di civiltà e di barbarie, sulla presunta superiorità della società civile rispetto alla sostenuta arretratezza c [...]

    17. perhaps Nunez failed because he thought himself the best ( In the country of the blind,the one eyed man is king ) if he thought another method,maybe achieved something different other vision like it or hate it I will respect youbut I hate one vision

    21. I didn’t read this short story until I took Disability and Literature in the spring of my junior year of college. Like a few of the other texts I’ve posted about, I like this story because it can be read from a couple different angles. You could look at the time period in which it was published (1911), and read it as a piece that deals with the issues of imperialism. I like this story because it’s science fiction with a purpose. Oftentimes, I think sci-fi is cast aside in the classroom bec [...]

    23. "In the country of the blind, the one-eyed man is king." - Proverb of Bagota I enjoy Wells story-telling immensely, and this tale is an example of what makes him great. In a short story, he weaves an adventure that answers all of the following questions but one. Guess which one:How would life change for human beings if we had all been born without vision? Is there any such thing as a handicap? Why?Would you give up your eyes for love? Could you love someone who does not understand your passions? [...]

    25. "How would you describe the colour red to a blind person?" This common creative writing prompt is stretched to an extreme in H G Wells' short story 'The Country of the Blind', in which a mountaineer named Nunez stumbles into a secluded valley whose residents have lived without eyesight for fourteen generations.At first, Nunez confidently assumes his sight will give render him a superior in this sightless realm, but finds that there are factors that he has not accounted for. An entire ecosystem h [...]
