Cursed to a life of isolation because of his appearance, values, and outrageous thoughts, John was alienated mentally, emotionally, and physically in both the Savage Culture and the World State Culture. Torn between keeping true to his virtues and conforming to society, the treatment of John highlights the values of both cultures in Aldous Huxley's Brave New World.
In Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, John’s identities are influenced by two opposite societies, and even though he tries to prove his manhood and change the framework of brave new world, he can’t gain real acceptance from anywhere. John’s mother, Linda, is from the brave new world but gave birth to him in the savage reservation and her different behaviors based on the framework of the brave new world caused John’s isolation in the savage reservation. John decides to move to the brave new world and becomes popular in this society, but his identity, influenced by his “savage” culture, can’t be accepted by the community. His conflict with the brave new world finally forces him to try to change the framework of the society, but his attempt is
The concept of Identity is complex through the exploration of relationships and a sense of belonging. This is explored within Tim Winton’s short stories, ‘ Neighbours’ and ‘Big World’, and in Robert Walker’s poem ‘Okay, Let’s be Honest’. Identity can change and evolve depending on belief, change, language and shifting influences.
The moral and psychological aspects of A Brave New World is what encompasses the reactions, adjustments, and ultimate rejections of the main character’s personality and himself in general. John’s epiphany occurred when he moved from New Mexico to London which is exemplified through his reaction, adjustments, and his eventual rejection of civilization; therefore it illuminates the theme of individuality resisting conformity.

Throughout the novel, Brave New World written by Aldous Huxley, the second protagonist John, views the world through Shakespearian eyes. “But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.” In several significant ways, John's knowledge of Shakespeare empowers him to be able to speak of his reactions and emotions and to be able to criticize the World State values. With his viewing the world through Shakespearean eyes, it allows John the power to realize all the values the World State had abandoned. Since John is the outsider to all the World States Value’s, since he will never and can never express his love for Lenina, and he is forced to suicide, he shows most of the traits
Huxley’s craft in concluding Brave New World suggests that an amoral society has defeated all goodness, ultimately resulting in the suicide of John the Savage which is a reflection of how rigid social structure, encouraged promiscuity, and the use of science as means of control lead to a horrific society. In particular, John is a very moral and religious person with the belief that, “God's the reason for everything noble and fine and heroic." (Ch. 17). John criticizes the way rigid social structure degrades these values. The caste system’s domination limits the ability to act freely and generate any intellectual beliefs. This suggests that when too much control is put into organizing a society, it can conclusively result in the lack of integrity
When a character enters a new environment with varying environmental and sociological influences, he or she experiences initiation. Although the initiation often brings a character into adulthood, John transitions from his savage lifestyle on the reservation to one laden with conditioning and governmental control. As John enters into the new society, citizens overwhelm him with observation, constantly shadowing him in an attempt to understand his identity and his origins. John evolves into a “zoo animal” character, serving as an educational figure for those around him while experiencing metamorphosis from life on the reservation to a new society in dystopian London. However, society’s treatment of John leads into his ultimate demise and self destruction as a character: “Drawn by the fascination of the horror of pain...which their conditioning had so ineradicably implanted in them, they began to mime the frenzy of his gestures, striking at one another as the
Identity. What is identity? One will say that it is the distinct personality of an individual. Others will say that identity is the behavior of a person in response to their surrounding environment. At certain points of time, some people search for their identity in order to understand their existence in life. In regards, identity is shaped into an individual through the social trials of life that involve family and peers, the religious beliefs by the practice of certain faiths, and cultural awareness through family history and traditions. These are what shape the identity of an individual.
Most people, unless they choose to be an outsider, want to be considered “cool.” Whether it’s to fit in with a peer group, or clique, or to impress someone in particular, like a member of the opposite sex, or a potential mate. Or possibly to gain something from an individual for financial or social gain (see “Scamming”).
The Brave New World has a lot of complexity and topics that are still relevant in the 21st Century. Throughout the novel one of the themes that caught my attention was how the World State uses social programing to structure their society. The society is being taught not to think about change, follow orders, have a sexual life, and be happy by using soma.
In the totalitarian country of London, the people are not subjected to war, hate, poverty, disease and suffering. There is an abundance of wealth, leisure and pleasures, but with utopia comes elimination of freedom and orthodox values. The people in the society are created in factories, then put into a strict 5 class hierarchy. To take the edge off of the harshness of reality, they take a synthetic drug called Soma and drift into blissful ignorance. When a savage named John—who becomes isolated from his indian tribe in New Mexico—comes to live in utopia London, he is forced to learn the strange, untraditional customs of the civilization. In the end, he has to choose between either assimilation or death. In the novel Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, John the Savage is both alienated from his community and emotionally enriched after being isolated from his home tribe.
In this world where people can acquire anything they need or want, we have to wonder, “Is the government controlling us?” Both the governments in A Brave New World and in the United States of America offer birth control pills and have abortion clinics that are available for everyone, thus making birth control pills and abortion operations very easy to acquire. Although both governments offer birth control pills and abortion clinics, A Brave New World’s government requires everyone to take the pills and immediately get an abortion when pregnant. This in turn shows us that A Brave New World’s government is controlling the population and the development of children. China is one of the few countries that currently have control of the
Identity is what defines us as a person. Everyone one on earth has their own unique identity. To showcase my identity, I created a collage of images and descriptive words, called an identi-kit. This identi-kit shows what I feel like is my identity to myself and the others. My identi-kit identifies me as a mixed martial artist. The identi-kit has images of a deadly shark with mixed martial arts gloves on that say mixed martial arts on the front and fight shorts with the words competitor and warrior on them. It also has descriptive words like “killer instinct” and “fight” which describe my spirit. There are three assumptions that come to question when asking about one’s identity. The first is if you were born with this
