This deeply textured compilation of observations from the analytic mind of Aldous Huxley is a celebration in the stunning use of language to create visual images and then reflect wherever those images happen to take oneself.

This "guide" to Central America and Mexico is, in reality, Huxley pitting his Oxford education against the simplicity of the lives of the local natives he encounters, and the wretched poverty they endure along with the vestiges of colonial Spanish influence still prevalent in their culture, and offering his interpretation of these scenes.

The classic British upper-class intellect of this stunning writer smashes directly into the stifled Latino struggle for survival in a sun-baked world of slow movement and cottage industry, and Huxley examines the New World around him with wit, depth, and a deep level of stoic and detatched sorrow hidden behind his "upper crust" Britishness.

The sentences are richly woven, as this master of composition bombards the reader with countless beautifully constructed sentences that are a celebration of composition and delightfully dance through the mind with graceful fluidity.

In the end one realises it's not so much what Huxley says, and his observations are, as is usual for him, quite observant, but how he says it.

Few modern writers can capture scenes with such vivid brushstrokes, and this charming and antiquated method of learning about the world around us is a reminder that the word education is relative to time and place, and that this intellectual giant humbles us with his grasp of language and breadth of understanding of what lies before his eyes as translated by his superb use of the English language.

Classical account of cruise through Central America in the 1920's. Beautiful photographic plates. Insight into the Victorian/Post Victorian American era and the modernization/collapse of Colonial Brittan.

A travel writing classic it says in the Product Description. I found Huxley's account of his trip round Guatemala, Mexico and the Caribbean boring. For him, Indians are uncivilized. "The village Indian can read, but his mind is so conditioned that he cannot understand what he reads," he says. Still, it seems Huxley doesn't think much of the masses in general; "The intrinsic and congenital stupidity of the majority is as great as it ever was. Universal education has created an immmense class of what I may call the New Stupid."

After reading this, I would classify Huxley among his ranks of the New Stupid. He states on page 152 that "to civilize primitives may be impossible". He seems to have been influenced (brainwashed?) by D.H. Lawrence's book The Plumed Serpent. According to Huxley, "No-one has ever written more forcibly than Lawrence in The Plumed Serpent of the hopeless squalor and stuffiness of human beings who have not yet reached the spiritual and mental stage of consciousness." In an Indian colonel he sees "a profound, hopeless melancholy". Huxley's explanation: "He had, I suppose, enough of our education to make him aware of his own Indianness."

After reading this, I suspect that people like Huxley and Lawrence had reached the stage of hopeless stuffiness, although it's not clear if Huxley shared Lawrence's view, as expressed in vol 3 of the Letters of D.H. Lawrence, that "To learn plainly to hate mankind, to detest the spawning human being, that is the only cleanliness now," but it seems he was at least on the way to such a perspective.
