Description

"No one would have believed in the last years of the nineteenth century that this world was being watched keenly and closely by intelligences greater than man's and yet as mortal as his own ..." Thus begins one of the most iconic books of all time which emphasises the paranoia of the fin-de-si cle as well as the inhumanity of imperialism. The reign of terror is created by the Martians who land their cylinders in England, using the Earth as a feeding ground and the narrator can only report the events. The subsequent hysteria demonstrates how unprepared civilisation is from an otherworldly invasion, as well as other issues such as community and exile, bravery and sacrifice and the unstoppable march of technology.
