While this riveting tale was intended to be a commentary on evolution, divine creation, and the tension between human nature and culture, modern readers familiar with genetic engineering will marvel at Wells's prediction of the ethical issues raised by producing "smarter" human beings or bringing back extinct species. These levels of interpretation add a richness to Prendick's adventures on Dr. Moreau's island of lost souls without distracting from what is still a rip-roaring good read.

There are many editions of The Island of Doctor Moreau. This edition would be useful if you would like to enrich your Japanese-English vocabulary, whether for self-improvement or for preparation in advanced of college examinations. Webster's edition of this classic is organized to expose the reader to a maximum number of difficult and potentially ambiguous English words.

Sciences such as gene-splicing and bioengineering are foretold in Wells's haunting visionary fable. The book created a sensation when it first appeared in 1896, and Wells himself later deemed the work "an exercise in youthful blasphemy"! However, when you have science fiction, adventure, and horror, how can you go wrong? A shipwreck victim is stranded on an island run by the mysterious Dr. Moreau, who seems hospitable enough, but the jungle is full of menacing shapes -- and what about those ominous references to the House of Pain? We gradually learn of Moreau's unholy experiments and worry that the hero will never escape. The Pronouncer of the Law is as creepy as in all the filmed adaptations ("Are we not men?").

ABSTRACT: Although The Island of Doctor Moreau can be read as advancing charges of feminine animality and women's unrestrained sexuality, or that animals and women share a closer connection than do men to either, these interpretations fail to incorporate an understanding of science fiction and the historical context of the "woman question." This analysis of The Island of Doctor Moreau argues for a reading as science fiction, as reflecting contemporary popular science, and as commentary on the New Women of 1890s England. Wells' story installs the feminine as a force disrupting the seemingly controlled laboratory island of Dr. Moreau. It also participates in the feminizing of the scientific object, and expresses men's fear of the havoc that would be unleashed by an enfranchised New Woman. By understanding the relationship between the New Woman and The Island of Doctor Moreau, we can better see English men's anxieties manifesting in contemporary popular science of Wells' story and the anti-women's rights movement.
