"La primera gran historia de viajes en el tiempo y una de las grandes novelas de ciencia ficción de todas las épocas. Una especulación arriesgada y sumamente aguda no sólo en lo científico, sino, y especialmente, en lo social y lo político. El Crononauta de Wells recorrerá distintos momentos de nuestro futuro para acabar en una remota y aparentemente utópica sociedad en la que la humanidad se ha dividido en dos especies tan antagónicas como dependientes la una de la otra: los apacibles Elois y los siniestros Morlocks. La evolución social que prefigura ese escenario sigue siendo, más de cien años después de su publicación, uno de los momentos más brillantes y estremecedores de la ciencia ficción de todos los tiempos"--Page 4 of cover.

Presents the classic science-fiction thriller depicting the adventures of the Time Traveler whose fantastic invention carries him into the world of the future. A scientist invents a time machine and uses it to travel to the year 802,701 A.D., where he discovers the childlike Eloi and the hideous underground Morlocks.

Work Description

The Time Traveller, a dreamer obsessed with traveling through time, builds himself a time machine and, much to his surprise, travels over 800,000 years into the future. He lands in the year 802701: the world has been transformed by a society living in apparent harmony and bliss, but as the Traveler stays in the future he discovers a hidden barbaric and depraved subterranean class. Wells's transparent commentary on the capitalist society was an instant bestseller and launched the time-travel genre.
