The Dawn of All

by R. H. Benson
Release date: 1911
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction

THE DAWN OF ALL, the second of Benson’s two science fiction satires, is a "counter-blast " to the terrifying LORD OF THE WORLD. Contradicting the notion that this novel presents a blueprint for an ideal society, "Benson wrote often and emphatically that he did not for a moment expect the pictured solution to realize itself, and that he even hoped it would not. Neither Science, nor the State, nor Religion would ever, he was convinced, find themselves in such mutual relations as he had invented." (C. C. Martindale, S. J.)
