The snapshot had become almost as dim as memories.

Eyeless in Gaza by Aldous Huxley

This young woman who had stood in a garden at the turn of the century was like a ghost at a cockcrow. His mother, Anthony Beavis recognized. The thing that had made life worth living all these months was precisely the pain of his bereavement. Life’s so ordinary that literature has to deal with the exceptional That’s why the inhabitants of imaginative literature have always been recruited from the pages of Who’s Who.


Much more important than Parliamentary government, or steam engines, or Newton’s Principia. More important really than English poetry.

Poetry can never be a substitute for war and murder. Whereas games can be. Every article on Aldous Huxley starts by noting his famous family: Huxley the scientist and supporter of Darwin’s evolution theory, father Leonard the Huxley, I’m sure, is sincere but it is hardly surprising his protagonist comes to the conclusion signalled from the beginning of Eyeless and in the previous novel, Brave New World that social progress is not possible without personal salvation first. His resulting mysticism and pacifism, or Buddhism, was the answer of a despairing intellectual to eyepess great social upheavals of the s—economic collapse, social revolutions and the threat of world war—but were soon made to seem irrelevant in the light of the need to confront Fascism and the Holocaust.

Later in the countercultural s Huxley’s ideas regained currency but, even then, his characters’ struggles seemed somewhat outdated. Yet there are elements of Eyeless in Gaza that hold up.


Many of the episodes among the characters are interesting and entertaining, showing the same psychological insight and satirical humour Huxley displayed in Antic Hay and Point Counter Point.

The involving sections on Anthony and Mark in Mexico near the end prove Huxley could have been a straight-ahead storyteller.

And the theme of bravery—Beavis’s yielding to peer yaza in childhood and his moral cowardice as an adult contrasting to his ultimately achieved courage in defence of his pacifist convictions—is interesting and worthy.

The novel’s title by the way comes from the Biblical story of Samson and Delilah in which the strongman, despite being blinded and enslaved, pulls down the Philistine temple when his hair grows back in.
