In Greek the word “dystopia” means “bad place.” And the places depicted in these novels graphically illustrate the horrors of living in a society that conditions moral values, regulates individual will, and requires total allegiance to the rules of the majority. Engage in close analysis and lively discussion of Aldous Huxley's Brave New World (1932), Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale (1985), and Cormac McCarthy's The Road (2007), while also considering how society today reflects some of the dystopian elements we have identified in our reading.
