    The Hoyden

    $5.00$10.00

    Impetuous Lady Martha and her sister, Lady Julia, are shy country girls, come to London to be presented to Society by their Aunt Maybelle, the Duchess — and, if the Duchess has her way, to marry well.

    What is the law? Not to eat flesh or fish, that is the law; are we not men? What is the law? Not to chase other men, that is the law; are we not men?

    As castaway Edward Prendick learns, Moreau is a feared, wrathful “god” to his beastmen. And in comparing Moreau to his lumbering, gentle servant M’Ling, it is sometimes difficult to tell which is the man, and which is the beast.

    Wells’ classic shocker raises the question of what it means to be human. “Pain… is such a little thing…”
