Brave New World | Chapter 18


Summary of chapter XVIII

John feels disgusted by the Brave new World society and seeks peace and quiet in a lonely area on England's South coast in an abandoned lighthouse. He feels guilty because of Linda's death and his longing for Lenina. That is why he tries to purify himself by whipping himself as punishment for his sins. When reporters find out about this penitential rite, they film him secretly and broadcast every move he makes. In this way he becomes a tourist attraction. When John recognizes Lenina among the curious masses, he gets into a wild rage, blindly attacks her and starts a mass orgy. When he wakes up the next morning and realizes what he has done, he hangs himself.
