::::: Book Review :::::
A description of a new world called The Blazing-World by Margaret Cavendish, Duchess of Newcastle. Here we have what we might call a proto-science-fiction novel. It has a story and a plot, but also a lot about natural philosophy. It was written in 1666 (the year of the Great Fire in London!) With his serious scientific work, observations on experimental philosophy. It was pretty tasty and I even wrote a post about him, he was an exhibition character; Lots of stories about his excesses with his horse-drawn carriage in London and with representatives of his imitators and critics, of course …. always feels good, after reading Daniel Dutton’s clever novel about Cavendish, to read it somehow. I wanted to read it myself but didn’t. It is officially, like other early modern utopias and semi-utopias, the usually hidden fun. It mixes science, imagination, philosophy, and utopian vision and I think we can certainly call it an early prot-science-fiction story. It has been quite influential in subsequent compositions; For one thing, does the League of Extraordinary Knights seems to be set in a burning world? And in 2014 Siri Hastved published her novel of the same title. A certain lady is kidnapped, the ship is wrecked and taken to the extraordinary fiery world, where she marries an emperor and gains unlimited power. They have a benevolent state that puts an end to war, religious conflict and gender inequality. Surprisingly, the story of the Lady was conceived in the 17th century, when Utopian fiction was in its infancy. The story is more significant for her progressive ideals, her female protagonist and a woman’s authorship.
Originally published in 1666, The Blazing World was written by Margaret Cavendish, Duchess of Newcastle and a famous writer who made rich expeditions in the male-dominated fields of politics, science, philosophy and literature. This sci-fi prototype is also a romance, an adventure story, even an autobiography, where the Duchess herself had a cameo. A pioneering approach to feminist utopia, it offers an interesting first-hand approach to ideas driven by the scientific revolution.
