The Time Machine
The Time Machine (1895) is considered one of the greatest science fiction novels ever written. Like other early works of science fiction, it deals with the author's angst about individual/industrial relations and explores a socialist political vision. Wells's protagonist travels to the year 802,701 and meets the Eloi, a frail set of humans who live simple lives without any need for technology. Later, he meets the Morlocks, bestial cannibals who work under ground to support the Eloi.
