Crome Yellow is a novel written by Aldous Huxley and first published in 1921.
This work is very special because it was Huxley's first novel. It is based on the ideas of the British literary society at the beginning of the 20th century, but it treats them from a satirical perspective and portrays them in a very peculiar way.
It is set in a typical English country house of the time, where we will find the young poet Denis Stone, who will have unrequited love affairs and a sea of philosophical ideas, while we will meet a cast of guests who inhabit the house of very peculiar and eccentric personalities. With them, we will discover witty dialogues on art, literature and society from very absurd perspectives and constant contradictions, offering a humorous yet insightful critique of the cultural and social pretensions of the time.
"Along this particular stretch of line no express had ever passed. All the trains—the few that there were—stopped at all the stations. Denis knew the names of those stations by heart. Bole, Tritton, Spavin Delawarr, Knipswich for Timpany, West Bowlby, and, finally, Camlet-on-the-Water. Camlet was where he always got out, leaving the train to creep indolently onward, goodness only knew whither, into the green heart of England."
