Time Machine By Wells

Herbert George Wells was born in 1866 in Bromley, Kent, a few miles from London,
the son of a house-maid and gardener. Wells died in 1946, a wealthy and famous
author, having seen science fiction become a recognized literary form and having
seen the world realize some of science fiction\'s fondest dreams and worst fears.

Wells mother attempted to find him a safe occupation as a draper or chemist.

Wells had a quick mind and a good memory that enabled him to pass subjects by
examination and win a scholarship to the Normal School of Science, where he
stayed for three years and, most importantly, was exposed to biology under the
famous Thomas H. Huxley. Wells went into teaching and writing text books and
articles for the magazines that were of that time. In 1894 he began to write
science-fiction stories. -James Gunn Wells vision of the future, with its
troglodytic Morlocks descended from the working class of his day and the pretty
but helpless Eloi devolved from the leisure class, may seem antiquated political
theory. It emerged out of the concern for social justice that drew Wells to the

Fabian Society and inspired much of his later writing, but time has not dimmed
the fascination of the situation and the horror of the imagery. The Time Machine
brought these concerns into his fiction. It, too, involved the future, but a
future imagined with greater realism and in greater detail than earlier stories
of the future. It also introduced, for the first time in fiction, the notion of
a machine for traveling in time. In this novel the Time Machine by H. G. Wells,
starts with the time traveler trying to persuade his guest\'s the theory of the
fourth dimension and even the invention. He tries to explain the fourth
dimension before he shows them the time machine so they don\'t think of him as a
magician. H. G. Wells uses details about the fourth dimension to teach the
reader the theory about it to capture your attention. Also Wells character the
time traveler says "Scientific people", "Know very well that time
is only a kind of space". In this quote he is clearly using persuasion
tactics. He tries to attack there consious by saying that, scientific people
know that this is only a kind of space. He says this in hopes that they will
believe what he says just because other intelligent people believe the theory.

This is a very primitive but still an effective way to try to persuade people.

The idea is "because many people believe it, so it must be true". The
people he is trying to persuade are of 19th century thinking and well to do
people and they are competitive amongst other well to do people so if other rich
and intelligent people believe this fourth dimension theory so the time traveler
hopes this will motivate them to learn about it. The Characters in the book Time

Machine are The time traveler, Filby, the psychologist, and the provincial
mayor. Later the silent man and the editor come in to play. Filby is described
as "an argumentative person with red hair". He has another label that

Wells puts on him; he call him the "young man". The psychologist also
has another label; he is "the medical man". The time traveler is
described briefly when the group of intellects head down the corridor to the
laboratory. He uses "his queer broad head in silhouette." When the
arrive at the machine\'s location it is described as "Parts were made of
nickel, parts of ivory, parts had certainly been filed or sawn out of rock
crystal". He probably chose these characters as witnesses because they hold
higher education and people would believe them from there reputations. The
psychologist would be beneficiary in convincing the other that its not a hoax
because he is aware of human behavior. The provincial mayor is also an
intelligent man and the people elected him so if he is to believe that this
works then many people would follow him. Filby is another character but never
talks about his standing in society it could be his friend because he did wink
at the time traveler or maybe he is not because he disputed the time traveler\'s
time machine in his face and behind his back. H. G. Wells uses two other
characters that come to dinner to meet the time traveler. The main character
comes back from the future. The medical doctor and the provincial mayor are
accompanied by the editor or known as the journalist, and the
