About the Book

"The Country of the Blind" is a short story by H.G. Wells about a mountaineer named Nunez who stumbles upon a remote valley. The valley is cut off from the rest of the world and is home to a small community of people who have been blind for generations. Despite initially being seen as a strange outsider, Nunez eventually comes to realize that the blindness of the community has given them unique abilities and a rich culture of their own. Nunez attempts to share his knowledge of the outside world with the community, but they are skeptical and dismissive of his claims. They view his sightedness as a form of madness and see their own blindness as a gift. In the end, Nunez realizes that he is the one who is truly disadvantaged in this society and decides to stay in the valley and become one of its citizens. The story explores themes of perspective, cultural relativism, and the limitations of knowledge. It also raises questions about the value of physical abilities and challenges the assumption that those who lack them are necessarily disadvantaged.

About Author

H.G. Wells

English author Herbert George Wells wrote more than fifty novels and several short stories. He was born on 21 September 1866, in Bromley, Kent, and was the fourth and last child of Joseph Wells. Wells married his cousin Isabel Mary Wells in 1891. In 1894 the couple got separated, and he fell in love with one of his students, Amy Catherine Robbins, with whom he relocated to Woking, Surrey, in May 1895. Wells' greatest collection of work, which was lamented by younger authors he had influenced, was produced before the First World War. Wells passed away in his residence at 13 Hanover Terrace, which had an overlooked view of Regent's Park, in London on August 13, 1946, at the age of 79 due to unidentified causes. Wells was cremated at Golders Green Crematory, and his ashes were scattered into the English Channel at Old Harry Rocks, which is located in Dorset and approximately 3.5 miles from Swanage.
