'I intend to explore time. Is that plain? I was never more serious in my life.'
So speaks the Time Traveller before he embarks on his astonishing journey into the future. His Time Machine transports him to a far-distant but dying world where humanity is divided into two classes: the graceful, idle Eloi who inhabit the idyllic surface of the world, and the Morlocks, ugly nocturnal creatures who live and work underground.In The Time Machine, Wells created one of the first and finest science fiction stories: a social allegory that is both vivid and perturbing.
