Brave New World: Chapter 9

Huxley’s ninth chapter is rather uneventful. While Lenina is on soma holiday to recover from her traumatic experiences over the last few days, Bernard makes all the necessary arrangements for their return trip with John and Linda. While the Savage waits for Bernard to return, he sees Lenina sleeping on the bed and thinks about how beautiful she is. Yet he knows that it would be wrong for him to take advantage of her and quickly flees in embarrassment.
