Alfred Mac Adam teaches literature at Barnard College-Columbia University. He is a translator and art critic. Now on to The Invisible Man. Who authorized a book about an invisible man that doesn't even have one scene in a women's locker room?
From Alfred Mac Adam’s Introduction to The Time Machine and The Invisible Man. The Time Machine (1895) and The Invisible Man (1897) are now more than a century old. Yet they endure as literary texts, radio plays, and movies, because they appeal directly to two of our deepest desires: immortality and omnipotence. Of course, what Herbert George Wells (1866–1946) wanted to express in these fantasies and what generations of readers have made of them are two radically different things. Erroneously labeled science fiction, and tricked out in their film versions with all kinds of fanciful devices with flashing lights and ominous buzzers Wells never mentions, they are really tales that enact the author’s theories and speculations about human society, human nature, and natural history in allegorical fashion.
Realist of the Fantastic. The time machine would allow us to escape death and gain knowledge of the fate of the earth, while invisibility would enable us to go and come as we please, under the noses of friends and enemies.
