This paper examines H.G Wells, often considered the father of futurism and his works. The author assesses the values and limitations of Wells' experiments in fiction, mostly writings on modern utopia and his rhetoric language. The paper gives excerpts and explains the values and limitations they have and how this contrast of values and limitations aids Wells in presenting to his readers with his steadfast stance on changing the way motherhood exists and his outlandish plots, as well as giving his readers insight into the way in which socialism is and the way in which it should be.

From the Paper:

"Wells gives yet another plot that could not possibly exist; a world of doubles; a world of better, more educated doubles. This utopian world again seems perfect in writing, but a utopian is just a value; a value held by Wells that only becomes a limitation in his writing because his fiction continually revolves around it. Another limitation and yet value Wells falls into in his writing is the strong stance he has on socialism and the way in which it existed and the way in which he wanted it to exist."
