H G Wells's Perennial Time Machine

A non fiction book by

Essays that illuminate one of the most renowned and influential works of nineteenth-century literature Acclaimed as a work of genius when first published in 1895, The Time Machine represents a revolution in storytelling. H. G. Wells's first - and greatest - novel has been recognized worldwide as a founding text of the science fiction genre and one of the most seminal narratives of the last hundred years. This collection of essays offers a series of original, penetrating, and wide-ranging perspectives on Wells's masterpiece by an international group of major Wells and science fiction scholars. The authors explore such textual topics as the narrative techniques and mythological undertones of the novel as well as its contribution to modern ideas of time and evolution and its focusing of the intellectual cross currents of the late nineteenth century. This insightful volume demonstrates that Wells's novel is both a visionary story and an unstoppable idea.
