Liverpool University Press

This chapter focuses on works by H.G. Wells structured by metaphors of time travel, space travel, shipwreck and bicycle travel that pose questions about existing social tendencies and the adequacy of current conceptual frameworks. Wells’s narrative methods unsettle his readers and provoke a reconsideration of their position.

Keywords:   H.G. Wells, The Time Machine, The War of the Worlds, The Island of Doctor Moreau, The Wheels of Chance
