RUR (Act 1,2)

While reading the first two acts of R.U.R, I found myself continuously comparing it to novels such as Brave New World by Aldous Huxley and The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood. However, what is truly interesting is the fact that both of these books have came out years after R.U.R was published; taking into consideration Foster’s chapter five through seven, I believe that this play not only falls under the idea that literature is constantly finding inspiration within itself, but also that the Bible – which can be considered to be a form of literature – and its ideas also are crucial to the making of ideas by many writers as well. What I truly enjoyed about R.U.R was the fact that it seemed to touch within such interesting topics about mankind, while using such an interesting and groundbreaking topic for his time. “There you are; as powerful as a small tractor. Guaranteed to have average intelligence. That will do, Marius.”
