20th Century Dystopia Literature 1930 – 1940
Dystopian Literature 20th Century – 1930 -1940 – With the war in the rearview mirror, motor cars, booze and parties what could possibly go wrong. This article explores Dystopian Literature between 1930 and 1940, with growing print technology and better access for authors we see some of the finest work of all time, this includes one of my personal favourites Brave New World. With all the changes happening and the end of an era, it’s no surprise writers were producing material that still holds weight today. I often feel that our political elite have used some of these books that were supposed to be warnings, more as roadmaps, scary stuff.
