Analysis of the novels as a pair
Set in the future
Artificial, Failed Utopia
very poor living conditions
society in state of constant war
main character(s) who has not conformed to society
similar types of conflicts
very technologically advanced
a very peaceful and "happy" society
Many similarities and connections are seen within the pairing
1984 was written after Brave New World and it is speculated that 1984 was inspired by BNW, as many similarities are seen between the two
Conclusion: The novels were a good pairing however it may have been more beneficial to read Brave New World before 1984

But Brave New World is a book about the future and, whatever itsartistic or philosophical qualities, a book about the future caninterest us only if its prophecies look as though they mightconceivably come true. From our present vantage point, fifteen yearsfurther down the inclined plane of modern history, how plausible doits prognostications seem? What has happened in the painful intervalto confirm or invalidate the forecasts of 1931?

Writing World – Sample Book Proposals
This really revolutionary revolution is to be achieved, not in theexternal world, but in the souls and flesh of human beings. Living ashe did in a revolutionary period, the Marquis de Sade very naturallymade use of this theory of revolutions in order to rationalize hispeculiar brand of insanity. Robespierre had achieved the mostsuperficial kind of revolution, the political. Going a little deeper,Babeuf had attempted the economic revolution. Sade regarded himselfas the apostle of the truly revolutionary revolution, beyond merepolitics and economics -- the revolution in individual men, women andchildren, whose bodies were henceforward to become the common sexualproperty of all and whose minds were to be purged of all the naturaldecencies, all the laboriously acquired inhibitions of traditionalcivilization. Between sadism and the really revolutionary revolutionthere is, of course, no necessary or inevitable connection. Sade wasa lunatic and the more or less conscious goal of his revolution wasuniversal chaos and destruction. The people who govern the Brave NewWorld may not be sane (in what may be called the absolute sense ofthe word); but they are not madmen, and their aim is not anarchy butsocial stability. It is in order to achieve stability that they carryout, by scientific means, the ultimate, personal, reallyrevolutionary revolution. But meanwhile we are in the first phase ofwhat is perhaps the penultimate revolution. Its next phase may beatomic warfare, in which case we do not have to bother withprophecies about the future. But it is conceivable that we may haveenough sense, if not to stop fighting altogether, at least to behaveas rationally as did our eighteenth-century ancestors. Theunimaginable horrors of the Thirty Years War actually taught men alesson, and for more than a hundred years the politicians andgenerals of Europe consciously resisted the temptation to use theirmilitary resources to the limits of destructiveness or (in themajority of conflicts) to go on fighting until the enemy was totallyannihilated. They were aggressors, of course, greedy for profit andglory; but they were also conservatives, determined at all costs tokeep their world intact, as a going concern. For the last thirtyyears there have been no conservatives; there have been onlynationalistic radicals of the right and nationalistic radicals of theleft. The last conservative statesman was the fifth Marquess ofLansdowne; and when he wrote a letter to the the ,suggesting that the First World War should be concluded with acompromise, as most of the wars of the eighteenth century had been,the editor of that once conservative journal refused to print it. Thenationalistic radicals had their way, with the consequences that weall know --Bolshevism, Fascism, inflation, depression, Hitler, theSecond World War, the ruin of Europe and all but universalfamine.
