Overview

Though Aldous Huxley is primarily remembered for his novels, and to a lesser extent his essays, he began his writing career as a poet. While a student at Balliol College at Oxford, having been exempted from military service due to extremely poor eyesight, he was involved in several student poetry magazines. In September 1916 his first book of poetry, “The Burning Wheel”, appeared. (Wikipedia)

About the Author

Aldous Leonard Huxley (26 July 1894 – 22 November 1963) was an English writer and philosopher, a member of the Huxley family. The author of nearly fifty books, he wrote novels, such as Brave New World (1931), set in a dystopian future; nonfiction works, such as The Doors of Perception (1954), interpreting his psychedelic experience with mescaline; and wide-ranging essays. Huxley graduated from Balliol College, Oxford with an undergraduate degree in English literature. Early in his career, he published short stories and poetry and edited the literary magazine Oxford Poetry. He went on to publish travel writing, film stories, satire, and screenplays. He spent the latter part of his life in the United States, living in Los Angeles from 1937 until his death. Huxley was a humanist and pacifist. He became interested in spiritual subjects such as parapsychology and philosophical mysticism, and in particular universalism. By the end of his life, Huxley was widely acknowledged as one of the pre-eminent intellectuals of his time. He was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature seven times. In 1962, a year before he died, Huxley was elected Companion of Literature by the Royal Society of Literature. (Wikipedia)
