Notes

General Note
The Time Traveller's tale of the future is a disturbing vision of the human situation as it appeared to Wells in the late 19th century. The Traveler encounters a community consisting of only two species of animals; the barbaric Morlocks and the gentle Eloi. The evolution of these two species began in industrialized England.
Description
In this hugely influential groundbreaking work of science fiction, a brilliant scientist constructs a machine, which, with the pull of a lever, propels him to the year AD 802,701. The Time Traveller finds imself in a verdant, seemingly idyllic landscape where he is greeted by the diminutive Eloi people. The Eloi are beautiful but weak and indolent, and the explorer is perplexed by their fear of the dark. He soon discovers the reason for their fear--the Eloi are not the only race to have inherited the earth. When his time machine disappears, the Time Traveller must descend alone into the subterranean tunnels of the Morlocks--a terrifying, carnivorous people woi toil in darkness--to reclaim it.
