  • "Jo Stoyte, an aging Hollywood millionaire, has had a successful life by many people's standards. However, driven by fear of his own mortality, Stoyte contemplates the meaning of life and death, surrounding himself with friends and colleagues who have their own ideas about the answers to these age-old questions. Published seven years after author Aldous Huxley's Brave New World, After Many a Summer Dies the Swan is a philosophical account of life and death. Many of the ideas laid out in After Many a Summer Dies the Swan are solidified in Huxley's final novel about human utopia, Island.

  • "A comedic novel written by Aldous Huxley. Published in 1939 under the title After Many a Summer, the novel was republished under its current title later in the same year. Written soon after Huxley left England and settled in California, the novel is Huxley's examination of American culture, particularly what he saw as its narcissism, superficiality, and obsession with youth. The title is a line from Alfred, Lord Tennyson's poem "Tithonus," about a figure from Greek mythology to whom Zeus gave eternal life but not eternal youth. In Huxley's novel, California millionaire Jo Stoyte learns of an English nobleman who discovered a way to vastly extend the human life span. Stoyte travels to England and finds the nobleman still alive, but he has devolved into an apelike creature. Stoyte decides to extend his life regardless of the consequences."
