The Island of Dr. Moreau

The Island of Dr. Moreau

by H. G. Wells

Society and Class Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #10

I feel as though the animal was surging up through them; that presently the degradation of the Islanders will be played over again on a larger scale. (22.5)

Society and class have their purpose. One of those purposes is to hide the fact that beneath our social molding we are all animals. Prendick believes this to be true after spending his tenure on Moreau's island. If you've ever had to work in the restaurant business, you'll believe it too.

People who Shmooped this also Shmooped...
