The Time Machine (Time Trilogy)
A Language-Illustrated Classic
Class set order code: 8050S
The Time Machine is the first book in the Time Trilogy of language-illustrated classic novels.
The MCT edition of The Time Machine by H.G. Wells is reproduced in its entirety and includes Michael’s “language illustrations”—close-ups of poetic techniques, four-level analyses of interesting grammar, and comments about writing strategies. Challenging vocabulary is defined at the bottom of each page.
According to Michael, the novel is:
“…a supreme work of the imagination, a work so captivating in its vivid description of the distant future that the reader scarcely notices the radical art of the work, such as the almost total absence of dialogue and the fact that the main character is never named. The astounding final chapters are visionary to a degree almost unique in literature…. The novel has it all: brilliant vocabulary, reflection on the implications of science, subtle and wry commentary on governmental and social systems, reflections on morality, a deep portrait of a creative genius whose mind isolates him even from his friends, luminous poetic writing, dazzling images…everything. It is a one-book humanities course.”
