Lenina’s response to her visit to the reservation is to go into a comatose
state by having a large dose of soma.
Bernard now sees a way to bring about the downfall of the D.H.C., and
requests permission from Mond to transport John and Linda back to London as they have blood ties in Utopia. Bernard is excited at having this newfound power and the ability to change things.
John sees Lenina as an object of adoration, and he creeps into her quarters
while she is asleep and kneels beside her reciting Shakespeare.
Bernard has aroused the curiosity of Mond, who as we have learned earlier is
keen to have independent views regarding the society of Utopia.
John and Linda will be useful if they return to London by giving their views
on the Brave New World.
We must remember that John only knows of Utopia by what his mother has told
him, and he idolizes one of these “goodly creatures” from the New World, and this is illustrated in his reciting of Shakespearean love verses. His attraction to Lenina at this stage is not sexual, but is
basic, or natural.
