Question:

In H.G. Wells' 'The Time Machine,' Well creates a dystopian future in which humanity has divided into two distinct species: the Eloi and the Morlocks. How does this imagined future reflect Wells' contemporary Victorian society?

Answer:

Wells maps the social divisions of his contemporary Victorian society onto the imagined future of 802,701, representing the manifestation of oppressive class divisions into evolutionary terms. In Wells' future, the bourgeoisie and the working classes have become two biologically divergent species, demonstrating the dangers of class division. Through representing social issues in biological dimensions, Wells conveys the threat of class divisions on the state of humanity and warns against the fragmentation and isolation of classes within an increasingly industrialised society.
