But Bernard Marx feels alienated from a society in which 'everybody belings to everybody else' and begins to show alarming signs of individualism. When he plucks a Shakespeare-reasing 'Savage' from a South American reservation and brings him back to Lodnon, two incompatible views of the world come into conflict, with dramatic results. Fir ...
