Wells is often portrayed as a utopian visionary, full of hope for mans progress through science and human knowledge. Is this portrayal accurate? In the present thesis, Lorne Reznowski argues that Wells lost hope in mankinds future. Wells, having no faith in any supernatural order, becomes a tragic figure, when the human institutions and ideals he advanced, must be reconciled with the tragic events of the first half of the 20th century and the threat of nuclear annihilation.
