the machine stops

Posted by ines (200.49.159.36) on :16:33:46 14/07/02

Hi, Forster Experts! I teach literature to 15-year-olds to whom English is a second language. I am now dealing with Forster's short story The Machine Stops and I find it extremely difficult to get them involved since they find the story too complicated. Any useful tip or information?
Thanks a lot!!

it was in response to a piece written by h.g. well a few years earlier describing the utopian society the technology was going to produce. forsters "rebuttal" was a dystopia produced by technology.
