Abstract

Based on the hypothesis that the novel Den Danske Borgerkrig 2018-24, is a modern update of the science fiction classic, Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, as far as structure and content, this project will present a narrative analysis of the two works, as well as an interpretation of themes and messages. The non-fictional work by Annemette Hejlsted, Fortællingen, is the basis for the analysis. The differences in which the societal criticism is conveyed, will be shed light upon through the concept of fordism, totalitarianism and theories by Zygmunt Bauman. The definition of science fiction proposed by Darko Suvin and H.G. Wells, will be used to categorize the novels. In conclusion, a vast amount of similarities regarding themes between the two works can be confirmed, but also some fundamental differences made evident. It is however presumptuous to claim that Den Danske Borgerkrig 2018-24, is a direct update of Brave New World
