The Time Machine (1895) is considered one of the greatest science fiction novels ever written. Like other early works of science fiction, it deals with the author's angst about individual/industrial relations and explores a socialist political vision. Wells's protagonist travels to the year 802,701 and meets the Eloi, a frail set of humans who live simple lives without any need for technology. Later, he meets the Morlocks, bestial cannibals who work under ground to support the Eloi.

The Time Machine is one of the most influential science fiction novels of all time. It is an adventure story documenting the Time Traveller’s travel into the future by a machine constructed by him. Once there, he discovered that society, as he knows it, has fallen into ruins. All that is left are remnants of crumbling buildings and overgrown vegetation. He comes in contact with two species instead of modern humans. Much of the novel concerns the Time Traveller’s horrifying discovery of this divided world. It gradually becomes apparent that the novel is more than an adventure story; it is also a parable about the ultimate kind of society stratified by class, by those who have and those who do not. The book is a work of great imagination that can be read and appreciated by fans of both Science Fiction and Non-Science Fiction.

The Time Machine is a science fiction novella by H. G. Wells, published in 1895 and written as a frame narrative. The work is generally credited with the popularization of the concept of time travel by using a vehicle or device to travel purposely and selectively forward or backward through time. The term "time machine", coined by Wells, is now almost universally used to refer to such a vehicle or device.

The Time Machine is one of the most enduring works of the English language. A hundred years after it was first published, the book continues to be studied. The 1895 London first edition is used as a basis for the exhaustive annotations and other critical apparatus of the world's foremost Wellsian scholar. The widely reprinted version of 1924 is also fully accounted for. For most students, one of the chief points of interest is what the novel signified to readers when it was first published and how it relates to Wells's later works. Accordingly, the annotations focus on these questions. The introduction gives in great depth the background of the work and its complex bibliographical history, and a synopsis of the literary conventions that Wells used.

Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,0, University of Erfurt, course: Dystopia: Wells and Huxley, language: English, abstract: H.G. Wells had been intrigued by speculations about the future progress of humanity towards a more equal society since his youth. (RUDDICK, 2007: 198) Studying at the Normal School of Science he came into contact with the mind-set of Thomas Henry Huxley who militated against the Social Darwinist thoughts which used evolutionary theories and were present in the late-Victorian society at the end of the 19th century. Huxley became an adored men-tor and friend for Wells who transferred and enhanced his ideas in his literature. (JANSING, 1977: 54) The scientific romance The Time Machine, which was Wells's first novel (GLENDENING, 2007: 7), explores the adventures of a respectable late-Victorian scientist within this evolutionary and Social Darwinist context. The scientist travels with his own created time machine into the year 802,701 where he finds the world of Eloi and Morlocks. These two species represent a degen-erated form of man whose retrogression results from socio-economic condi-tions. An additional journey 30 million years forward in time adds to the image of degeneration in the evolutionary process. This research paper concentrates on the evolutionary and Social Darwinist theme of The Time Machine. First, an introduction to Social Darwinist thoughts in the end of the 19th century is given in order to set the context for this scien-tific romance. Secondly, the cognition process of the Time Traveller is analysed as this will make clear Wells's examination with the social theories of his time. Studying selected symbols and images finally shows a detailed insight into the evolutionary subject of The Time Machine.

"Nature never appeals to intelligence until habit and instinct are useless. There is no intelligence where there is no need of change." ― H. G. Wells, The Time Machine "We should strive to welcome change and challenges, because they are what help us grow." ― H. G. Wells, The Time Machine "Very simple was my explanation, and plausible enough---as most wrong theories are!" ― H. G. Wells, The Time Machine The Time Machine is a fast-paced and fun read. The Time Machine, written in 1895 by the British author H.G. Wells, is a thought-provoking work of science fiction. The novella opens in the author's Victorian Britain, at a dinner party hosted by the central protagonist known as "the Time Traveller." Throughout the meal, the Time Traveller speaks to his guests about his theory that "time is simply a fourth dimension." He then reveals that he has built a time machine, which is able to transport a person to another Time. Through pulling a lever on his machine, this Victorian scientist then finds himself on an adventure of epic proportions: he arrives in A.D 802,701 and is almost immediately immersed in the drama between the Eloi people and Morlocks. This work is most known for popularizing the concept of time travel, particularly when enabled by a vehicle. However, the novella also reflects Wells own outspoken socialist values, and so can be read on another level. Despite the fact that was it was first published in 1895, the story has been adapted many times. It has been turned into three feature films, two TV shows and countless comics. The huge success of this novella is because the narrative is timeless. Written at the threshold of a new century, it continues to enthral 21st century audiences. Hebert George Wells, known as H. G. Wells, was a British author born in 1866. He was a prolific writer, publishing works in many genres, from short stories to social commentaries. However, he is best known for his science fiction novels, leading some to call him the "father of science fiction," or even the "Shakespeare of science fiction!" Wells is known as a futurist, meaning that much of his fiction foresaw changes that have now happened in world. Wells was a socialist and a member of the Fabian society and this political background can be found in his work.

"This paper presents the pessimistic view H.G. Wells presents for the future in The Time Machine. This view is illustrated by examining the society of 802,701 A.D. which contains two species of man: The Eloi, a carefree, gay people; and the Morlocks, a subterranean, cannibal. Also, this paper goes on to examine Wells' view of society's future as compared to late-Victorian England, and the relationship between the future and present society. Finally, an examination of Wells' view of the end of the world is shown as an example of his pessimistic view for the future." Abstract.

Gathered together in one hardcover volume: three timeless novels from the founding father of science fiction. The first great novel to imagine time travel, The Time Machine (1895) follows its scientist narrator on an incredible journey that takes him finally to Earth’s last moments—and perhaps his own. The scientist who discovers how to transform himself in The Invisible Man (1897) will also discover, too late, that he has become unmoored from society and from his own sanity. The War of the Worlds (1898)—the seminal masterpiece of alien invasion adapted by Orson Welles for his notorious 1938 radio drama, and subsequently by several filmmakers—imagines a fierce race of Martians who devastate Earth and feed on their human victims while their voracious vegetation, the red weed, spreads over the ruined planet. Here are three classic science fiction novels that, more than a century after their original publication, show no sign of losing their grip on readers’ imaginations.
