Sull'Autore

H. G. Wells was born in Bromley, England on September 21, 1866. After a limited education, he was apprenticed to a draper, but soon found he wanted something more out of life. He read widely and got a position as a student assistant in a secondary school, eventually winning a scholarship to the mostra altro Royal College of Science in South Kensington, where he studied biology. He graduated from London University in 1888 and became a science teacher. He also wrote for magazines. When his stories began to sell, he left teaching to write full time. He became an author best known for science fiction novels and comic novels. His science fiction novels include The Time Machine, The War of the Worlds, The Wonderful Visit, The Island of Doctor Moreau, The Invisible Man, The First Men in the Moon, and The Food of the Gods. His comic novels include Love and Mr. Lewisham, Kipps: The Story of a Simple Soul, The History of Mr. Polly, and Tono-Bungay. He also wrote several short story collections including The Stolen Bacillus, The Plattner Story, and Tales of Space and Time. He died on August 13, 1946 at the age of 79.

In realtà è un'intervista del 1934 fatta dal giornalista inglese Wells a Stalin: scritta bene e che denota la contrapposizione di vedute fra due differenti visioni politiche e sociologiche.

Molto più umoristico all'inizio, vira improvvisamente per il drammatico, e nella parte umoristico Wells mi è sembrato più bravo. D'altronde essere invisibili nell'inverno britannico non è certo cosa da prendere sottogamba...

Niente male il modo con cui il protagonista è stato tratteggiato, l'avevo preso in simpatia all'inizio, pensando "poveretto, ci credo che è arrabbiato con il mondo, visto come deve vivere", poi niente, diventa uno scienziato pazzo vero e proprio, ma lo stereotipo è quasi passato in secondo piano.… (altro)

Wells è considerato uno dei padri della fantascienza, insieme a Verne; ma mentre quest'ultimo puntava ad una letteratura di intrattenimento, con molti dettagli pseudoscientifici per aumentare il realismo, Wells usa gli elementi fantastici per una critica alla società del tempo, relegando i dettagli tecnici in secondo piano.
La Macchina del tempo è l'archetipo di questa sua concezione: dobbiamo prendere come assodato che esista una macchina del tempo, di cui solo vagamente ci viene spiegato il funzionamento, perchè il fulcro del romanzo non sono le peripezie del protagonista, ma le riflessioni che ne scaturiscono. Dal suo incontro con Eloi e Morlock arriva ad interrogarsi sul conflitto di classe, sulla decadenza della borghesia di fine secolo e sul falso mito del progresso. Naturalmente questo libro non sarebbe letto ed amato ancora oggi se tutti questi approfondimenti non fossero accompagnati da una trama avvincente, scritta con uno stile scorrevole ma curato. Forse per i miei gusti è un po' troppo breve, in questo modo la storia non si è sviluppata pienamente ed il coinvolgimento ne ha risentito, ma è comunque un'opera che nel corso degli anni ha mantenuto il suo fascino, e non è facile quando si parla di fantascienza.… (altro)

"Alla fine del XIX secolo nessuno avrebbe creduto che le cose della terra fossero osservate da intelligenze superiori a quelle degli uomini."
Così inizia il primo romanzo di fantascienza, apparso nel 1898, dalla penna di uno dei pionieri del genere: un avvio lento, con una riflessione sulle false certezze umane, a metà tra il filosofico e l'umoristico, nell'epoca dell'illusione positivista. Subito però la storia si anima e, in un crescendo di suspense, descrive l'arrivo sulla terra di terrificanti marziani che seminano la distruzione e minacciano di cancellare ogni traccia di vita sul pianeta.
Un gioco di fantasia e una lente di ingrandimento sulle paure della società post-industriale inglese, ancora oggi attuale, grazie a uno stile che coniuga con intelligenza gli ingredienti del racconto fantastico e del romanzo dell'orrore.
