Author Info
H. G. Wells
Born in Kent, England to poor parents, H. G. Wells was apprenticed to a draper at age 14. Fired, he bounced from job to job, and at age 18 he went to college and became a pupil of scientist Thomas Henry Huxley, the greatest influence on his life. After two troubled marriages, Wells began publishing his novels and grew very wealthy; his first novel, THE TIME MACHINE, was followed by approximately a book a year. He was described by his paramour Rebecca West as "practically off his head, enormously vain, irascible, and in a fantasy world." He died in 1946, one month from his 80th birthday. His influence on other authors is incalculable.
Praise
"Indeed, I would claim that Wells's early fiction is closer to the symbolic romances of Hawthorne or Melville, or to a complex fantasy like 'Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde,' or even to the fables of Kafka, than it is to the more strictly scientific speculations of Verne."
"'The Time Machine'...is worth reading, if you like to read impossible yarns, and though there is scarcely an effort to make the queer invention, by means of which the inventor was projected into the year 800,000 of our era, seem likely, the narrative is smartly written, and the philosophy of the thing is at once obvious (which is desirable when a story book has any philosophy) and interesting."
"Without question 'The Time Machine' is the best piece of writing. It will take its place among the great stories of our language. Like all excellent works it has meanings within its meaning."
From the Publisher
First Line The Time Traveller (for so it will be convenient to speak of him) was expounding a recondite matter to us.
