Does hg wells have ANY poems?

I don"t think so, Wells was a science fiction bloke ,. not a poet. at the time most of the light-to-middle poetry market was covered extensively by Rudyard Kipling ( in England) Kipling won the Nobel prize for literature in l907, the youngest writer to do so. Unless you count songs like (Across the Universe) which could be interpretations of signal lights from the front car of a subway train ( Images of Broken Light) well, there are not too many poems or songs with a sci-fi theme.

6 good quotes from the book the invisible man by hg wells can you help?

1. Page 21. "He rarely went abroad by daylight, but at twilight he would go out muffled up invisibly, whether the weather were cold or not, and he chose the loneliest paths and those most over-shadowed by trees and banks." (It is an irony that Griffin must cover his invisibility with something designed to make him even more invisible. His condition has thus become a burden rather than a benefit.)

2. Page 103. "To do such a thing would be to transcend magic. And I beheld, unclouded by doubt, a magnificent vision of all that invisibility might mean to a man, -the mystery, the power, the freedom. Drawbacks I saw none. You have only to think! And I, a shabby, poverty-struck, hemmed-in demonstrator, teaching fools in a provincial college, might suddenly become-this." (Griffin is recounting his feelings of exaltation when he realized he had discovered the means of becoming invisible.)

3. Page 114-115. "A feeling of extraordinary elation took the place of my anger as I sat outside the window and watched these four people...trying to understand the riddle of my behavior....I was invisible, and I was only just beginning to

realize the extraordinary advantage my invisibility gave me. My head was already teeming with plans of all the wild and wonderful things I had now impunity to do." (Having deceived his first group of "victims," Griffin is obsessed with the visions of things he can get away with.)

4. Page 122. "Weary, cold, painful, inexpressibly wretched, and still but half convinced of my invisible quality, I began this new life to which I am committed. I had no refuge, no appliances, no human being in the world in whom I could confide...I was half minded to accost some passer-by and throw myself upon his mercy. But I knew too clearly the terror and brutal cruelty my advances would evoke...My soul object was to get shelter from the snow, to get myself covered and warm; then I might hope to plan. But even to me, an invisible man, the rows of London houses stood latched, barred and bolted impregnably." (At this point Griffin still seems to have some consideration for people's reactions toward an invisible human. Nevertheless, he has already discovered that being invisible isn't as "wild and wonderful" as he had thought.)

5. Page 139. "The more I thought it over,...the more I realized what a helpless absurdity an invisible man was,-in a cold and dirty climate and a crowded civilized city. Before I made this mad experiment I had dreamt of a thousand advantages. That afternoon it seemed all disappointment. I went over the heads of things a man reckons desirable. No doubt invisibility made it possible to get them, but it made it impossible to enjoy them when they were got. Ambition-what is the good of pride of place when you cannot appear there? What is the good of the love of woman when her name must needs be Delilah? I have no taste for politics, for the black-guardisms of fame, for philanthropy, for sport. What was I do to? And for this I had become a wrapped-up mystery, a swathed and bandaged caricature of a man." (This is one of the last sane realizations that Griffin could claim. Once he realized what he had done to himself, his only hope was in getting back what he had lost, but he had not developed his theories in reverse. The awareness of his situation leads to his insanity; if he cannot reverse his condition, his only option-to his demented way of thinking-is to use his invisibility to demand the comforts of life from people who would be to terrorized to refuse him.)

6. Page 147. "He has cut himself off from his own kind. His blood be upon his own head." Kemp has been explaining Griffin's intentions to the police. In devising the plan for murder and a "reign of terror," Griffin has become "inhuman," and completely selfish. He "cut himself off" first by creating a condition which would force him to the fringes of society. In planning to terrorize that society for his own ends, he divorces himself from all sense of human compassion.
