Bai mundu berria (ingelesez Brave New World) 1932an idatzia, Aldous Huxley idazlearen lehen nobela distopikoa da. XXVI. mendeko Londresen kokatuta, ugalketa teknologien, eugenesiaren eta ametsetan ikastearen (hipnopedia) garapena aurreikusten du, gizartea aldatzeko konbinatzen direnak. Deskribatzen duen munduan utopia ironiko bat izan daiteke: gizadiak ez du kezkarik, osasuntsua eta teknologikoki garatua da. Gerra eta pobrezia ezabatuak izan dira eta denak zoriontsu dira. Baina hau beste hainbat gauza ezabatuta lortu da: familia, aniztasun kulturala, artea, literatura, zientzia, erlijioa eta filosofia. Gizarte hedonista da gainera, drogen eta sexu promiskuoaren plazerekin itsututa.

Portrait of Phillis Wheatley (1761-1792): African-born Colonial American former slave, child prodigy, translator and poet. Portrait attributed to Scipio Moorhead (S. M.) c.1770s
Phillis Wheatley (c. 1753 – December 5, 1784) was the first published African-American woman and second published African-American poet.
She was born in West Africa, most likely in present-day Gambia or Senegal. When she was seven, she was sold into slavery and transported to North America. The Wheatley family of Boston purchased her and taught her to read and write. They encouraged her to write poetry when they saw her talent.
Her poems brought her fame both in England and the American colonies. She was emancipated after the death of her master John Wheatley. She married soon after but she fell into poverty and died of illness.
Find information about the painter (Scipio Moorhead) and write a short biography similar to this of Phillis Wheatly.
